Why select funeral services from Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home in Lancaster, PA

Grief and loss touch each of us in its own individual way. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to cope with the loss of a family member or friend. It’s always difficult.

The funeral directors at Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory understand this, and work very hard at lightening the load for those making funeral arrangements and making the transition as easy as possible for you and your family. We believe that listening, coupled with the ability to empathize with a family’s grief, gives our funeral directors the ability to support the Lancaster County neighbors we serve while guiding them through the process of planning funeral services.

Our staff will create a tribute that works within your budget.

Snyder Funeral Homes can create any type of funeral or memorial service to fit your personal needs and wishes. We will help your family consider and decide what type of funeral service to have, and develop a tribute that works within your budget.

Planning funeral services starts with listening.

Sometimes those making funeral arrangements have a clear idea of what type of services are most appropriate. Other times their views are less clear. In either case, when we help families make plans, our funeral directors begin by simply spending time with them and talking about their loved one. Through the questions asked and the stories that are shared, our staff will begin to develop an understanding what a family might be looking for. Only then can we guide them in the right direction of selecting funeral services that best suits their needs.

Careful listening, asking the right questions, and making appropriate suggestions in keeping with the spirit of the deceased are core strengths of all of our licensed funeral directors.

The place I call home...

Doreen Vlassis Snyder in Lancaster, PA The Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church is home to me in many ways. It's where I was baptized and went to Sunday school every week. At this beautiful church, I volunteered, met my husband, got married, baptized my children, and saw my daughter marry. I feel peaceful attending Liturgy each week, as the smell of incense fills the church. I am proud to be a member of such a wonderful community. — Doreen Vlassis Snyder Vice President and Family Services Representative
