The on-site crematory at our Lancaster, PA facility means your loved one never leaves our care.

We are the only funeral home in Lancaster, PA with an on-site crematory, chapel, and witnessing room all under one roof. This makes selecting the services that are most appropriate for a loved one much easier, as all funeral options are available from our funeral home and crematory on Lititz Pike.

Most importantly, from the moment a loved one is picked up by our staff at the place of death, they never leave our care. Safeguards are in place to ensure that once they are entered into our care, they are clearly identified throughout the entire time they are on the premises, and verification occurs at each step of the cremation process.

We take very seriously the responsibility placed on us when families entrust us to care for their loved ones. Funeral homes that are forced to send a loved one to a third-party crematory simply can’t offer the same level of protection and care.

Families can have private time with the deceased

Family comfort room in Lititz, PA Funeral HomePrior to the cremation process, families often request private time with their loved in a comfortable setting. We built our comfort room for private viewings in a home-like setting. Our non-denominational chapel is another popular choice for families to gather with the departed before cremation occurs.

The place I call home...

Chip Snyder at First Friday in Lancaster, PA One of my favorite parts of the Lancaster community is First Fridays in Lancaster City. I enjoy walking the streets of the town in which I grew up and visiting the local art galleries, restaurants, museums and taking in the beautiful architecture. It's is a wonderful example of the history, local arts, and culture found in my home town. Being a part of such a thriving community is exhilarating to me. — Charles F. “Chad” Snyder III General Manager, Licensed Funeral Director
