Funeral Homes Near Me

Are you looking for the best funeral homes near you? Consider Lutz Funeral Home in Reading, PA. We will help you complete all the arrangements of a funeral service in keeping with your own traditions and financial means.

Lutz Funeral Home has been providing funeral services to families in their time of need since 1884. Five generations later, Lutz family members continue to have the privilege of serving families in Berks, Chester, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Montgomery and Schuylkill County, PA with a commitment to integrity, service and excellence.

We offer assistance not only to families upon a loved one’s death, but also to individuals who wish to pre-plan their own funeral arrangements. Our goal is to help you make decisions by providing information and explaining the many options that are available.

Celebrating a Life

Ceremony marks every important transition in life; baptisms, graduations, weddings and funerals. Not only is ceremony important for honoring the life of a deceased loved one, but the scriptures, music and other remembrances also help us cope with our own grief.

With some type of funeral or memorial service, we can be comforted by the people whose lives our loved one has touched, and we give their friends and coworkers an opportunity to pay their respects and share their memories.

Many people believe that a traditional funeral service is the only option, but Lutz Funeral Home offers many alternatives, such as visitations with or without viewing, and unique ceremonies to honor the person who has died.

During your funeral arrangement conference, the Funeral Director will guide you throughout the planning process, provide you with clear answers to all your questions, and share his or her insights and experience with you.

Beyond the decision regarding burial versus cremation for your loved one, you have many options where services are concerned. We will be pleased to help you with all of the details involved in planning a funeral or memorial service for your loved one.

Pre-Planning Your Services

Today, more people are making the decision to prearrange their funerals than ever before. Because of factors such as inflation, lack of nearby family members, etc., planning your own funeral can make emotional and financial sense.

Funerals are an emotional process, and adding funeral arrangements to the grief can be overwhelming for some people. There are many difficult decisions to make: burial or cremation? Open or closed casket? By pre-planning your funeral, you can make those choices and let your family focus on celebrating your life.

By talking with Lutz Funeral Home about what you would like at your funeral service, it guarantees that you will have the service you want. Every detail can be planned in advance. If you would like a specific song played or a certain type of flower, the Funeral Director can make it happen. 

Here are some of the most common reasons people give for prearranging their own funerals:

1.      Make your wishes clear regarding cremation or burial

2.     Make certain your services align with your religious or ethnic customs

3.     Ensure that you will be remembered in the way you want

4.    Reduce the emotional stress on your family 

5.     Save money by locking in today’s prices
