Family-owned. Personal relationships. Community-minded.
At Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home, we think these things mean something. We seek them out in the small businesses we support, and we expect that our Lancaster County neighbors do too.
Our first funeral home was opened over 70 years ago by Charles F. Snyder Sr. That funeral home in downtown Lancaster, as well as our Lititz Pike and Millersville funeral homes, continues to be family-owned and family-operated to this day. That is a rare thing in the funeral home industry, as more and more family and independently-owned homes are being bought and operated by large national funeral home providers. Being family owned means we are accountable to our customers, and that they have a direct connection to the ownership.
When ownership is lost, so are the connections to the principles and values of the founder; principles that we believe in deeply. We are mindful that we will build a reputation through each and every family we serve, and believe that success is measured by earning their trust during their time of need. We strive to do so every day through our core principles:
These core principles are important to the success of our business. If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of our service, we will make it right or you will not be charged for that service.
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
