Cremation and Funeral Options in Red Lion, PA

When someone close to you passes away, and you find yourself in charge of planning the funeral, keep in mind all of the different ways you can choose to have the loved one laid to rest. The first big decision will be a traditional burial or cremation?


Cremation has been growing in popularity throughout the years. Our precise and respectful process will keep you at peace, knowing that your loved one is cared for from start to end. Our team is diligent in keeping track of the ashes, and only one cremation is done at a time here at our facility. A licensed funeral director performs every cremation.


If you are looking into funeral services in Red Lion, PA, then consider all of the many options:

  • Traditional funeral with a viewing and burial: What you imagine in a funeral from seeing it on TV or noticing it in your family's traditions may include a viewing, a funeral service, and a burial. At the funeral, family members can speak and share nostalgic stories about the person who has passed.
  • Celebration of life: If dressing up and sitting still for an hour to listen and ponder isn’t your idea of a good funeral, then change it up. More importantly, how would the deceased have wanted their life to be honored? A celebration of life can be a party with music they loved, and their favorite sports team displayed. You can hang pictures and display hobbies where family and friends can dance and share memories.
  • Outdoor barbecue: Take the celebration outside and forget the hassle of securing a venue. You can gather together at a park or in someone’s backyard. You don’t have to have the casket present to hold a memorial service. All of these options are up to you and what specifically works for your family and friends.
  • Open invitation or a small, closed service: You may decide to have a small, intimate service to remember your loved one. Or you can open it up to the public, posting the details in the obituary and inviting anyone who wants to remember and honor the deceased. All of this is included in the planning, and our team can iron out all the details for you.
