Our Crematory and Funeral Homes are Clean, Spotless and with No Surprises

When planning a cremation, one of the first, most important and irreversible decisions you will be making is where and how the actual cremation will take place. Whether it’s for peace of mind, or in order to help achieve a better sense of closure, many people not only want to see where the cremation will take place, but also take part in a final tribute or ceremony at the crematory.

What to Consider before Choosing a Cremation Provider

Unlike most Schuylkill County funeral homes, we personally handle everything and that’s why we know whose ashes are in the urn.
