Serving Berks County, Lancaster County, Lebanon County, Lehigh County, Pottstown, Reading PA, and surrounding communities
Cremation has gradually gained in popularity, and about half our families now choose this alternative to a traditional service. This option forgoes the casket for burial while still providing the options of a private family-only viewing, memorial service, or religious service. You can choose to make your arrangements with the assistance of our staff or the funeral director, which is the traditional way most people plan, or you can complete all the necessary paperwork yourself online.

When the death occurs, you simply call the funeral home and the deceased is removed from the place of death to our funeral home, where it is stored with refrigeration for up to 3 days. When all necessary state certificates and permits are completed and the coroner’s cremation authorization is issued, the deceased is then cremated and the family notified when to pick up the ashes. Cremains are returned in a cardboard box.
