Whether your choice is burial or cremation, a traditional funeral or an innovative, unique celebration of life, Lutz Funeral Home will provide our full support before, during and after the services. We have been providing burial and cremation services to families in the Reading area since 1884.
Cremation or Burial?
One of the first decisions you will have to make after a death occurs is whether you prefer cremation or burial. Your loved one may have told you, or someone else, exactly how they wished to be cared for. If their wishes were never clearly stated, however, this can be a difficult decision. Lutz Funeral Home can help you decide.
If you've chosen burial, we’ll help you select the casket, vault, and the desired cemetery. If cremation is your choice, we’ll help you decide whether to place the cremated remains in a mausoleum niche, bury them on the cemetery grounds, or place them in a special urn or other creative place of rest.
At Lutz Funeral Home, we operate our own on-site state-of-the art crematory. Because we control all aspects of the cremation procedure, you can be confident that you are receiving the highest standards of honesty, accountability and trust from our superbly trained and licensed staff.
Traditional or Unique Ceremony?
Lutz Funeral Home is called upon daily by families in Berks County and the surrounding area to plan, organize and conduct funeral or memorial services to honor the departed and bring comfort to grieving loved ones.
During your arrangement conference with Lutz Funeral Home, your Funeral Director will help you with every detail of planning a funeral or memorial service, such as selecting a casket, urn and/or grave marker, offering suggestions and alternatives for services, preparing and publishing an obituary, and anything else you need to plan a meaningful tribute to the deceased.
While every family is different, and many people prefer a traditional or religious ceremony held in the family’s church or the chapel of the funeral home, there is a growing trend toward unique and personal memorial services.
Perhaps your loved one would like to have their final goodbye at the beach, in a favorite park, or on the 18th hole of a golf course. The choices are limited only by your imagination, and our Funeral Directors will help you create a meaningful ceremony that expresses the individuality of your loved one.
We also offer many ways to incorporate memories of your loved one into the service and make it as unique as the life you are celebrating, including having doves, butterflies, or balloons released at the close of the service.
