- About Us
The most common type of funeral service, best described as a typical funeral service, a viewing is held which is then followed by a funeral or religious service. The viewing may be either several hours prior to the service, or held the night before the service at our facility. After the funeral service is complete, either at our funeral home or at your place of worship, a procession is held to the gravesite, where a committal service takes place.
The care and preparation of your loved one prior to the funeral service takes place exclusively at our facility under our constant supervision. Your trust in our funeral home is taken very seriously, and your loved one is given the utmost respect and dignity while in our care.
During the funeral arrangement process, you will have the opportunity to select a casket, of which we have several on display in our casket display room. Caskets offered are made from 20 gauge steel, 18 gauge steel, stainless steel, and precious metals such as copper and bronze. The natural beauty of wood caskets are from species including poplar, maple, oak and cherry, just to name a few. Most people think caskets are very expensive, but we are able to offer these products at very competitive prices enabling us to extend many options, including customization of the selected product.
Contrary to popular belief, it is the cemetery regulations and not state regulations which require the use of a burial vault. Not only does the burial vault prevent grave sinkage, but a properly sealed unit will provide the ultimate in protection from earth elements and water seepage to its contents. Concrete vaults, some with additional liners of plastic and precious metals, are the industries leading choice. Burial Vaults offered through our funeral home are exclusively supplied by the Fegley Vault Company of McAdoo, PA. Their expertise and attention to detail in both their product manufacturing process along with the delivery, setup and installation of the product are unmatched in our local area, making them the preferred vault company of the Stauffer-Breznik Funeral Home.
