  1. The local police and/or coroner may need to be notified, and any details of the death that are known communicated.
  2. Arrangements must be made to have your loved one taken into our care at the funeral home or the county morgue.
  3. The next of kin should be notified (if not already aware of the death).

Our licensed funeral directors will handle the matter swiftly, calmly, and with compassion for you and your loved one.

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
