Sunset Cemetery

Sunset Cemetery is located on South Franklin Street and is owned and operated by the Town of Christiansburg. Sunset Cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday, and a sanctuary of peace today. Lot purchases and interment arrangements may be arranged through the cemetery administration department.

For information on maintenance, sales, and grave openings, call Sunset Cemetery at 540-382-3408 or email.


In 2016, the Town of Christiansburg introduced a beautiful and inviting new section of Sunset Cemetery, featuring 156 traditional burial plots and a 72-niche columbarium. 

Monuments in this section will be limited to 26 inches in height and 12 inches in width. All monuments must be slant-face style with no base. Plots in the new section are $1,000 per space.

In the granite columbarium, each niche is 11 ½ x 11 ½ x 12 deep. A niche can be sold as a single for $1,550 or a double for $2,150. The niche price includes setup of a tent and chairs, as well as the opening and closing and engraving of granite.
