Mission Statement

Thank you for visiting our web site. Imagine a setting so comfortable it would put you at ease even during a difficult time. Soft soothing colors and a warm friendly atmosphere offering the comforts of a home.

"Because We Care" is our focus at Burgess Funeral Home. We are independently family owned and have been caring for families in Lancaster County and the surrounding areas since 1996.

It is our commitment to care for all our families as we would our own; with professionalism, compassion, and integrity. We treat our families as we would like to be treated, fairly and compassionately. We consider it a privilege to care for your family and are grateful for the confidence you place in us to carry out the final wishes of your loved one.

We offer quality affordable services to meet the needs of each and every family we serve. Our staff goes to great lengths to create a service to honor your loved one. We encourage personalization of each service such as; pictures and other items that represent the life of your loved one. We offer a large selection of caskets, cap panels, life style corners, and video tributes to personalize the service to represent the life of your loved one. We also offer the Online Register Book for those unable to attend the visitation or funeral service, as a means to send their condolences.

We strive to keep abreast of new ideas and technology. However, nothing can take the place of compassion and caring that you will find among our employees.

On Site Crematory

In an effort to accommodate the changing needs of our families, we installed a crematory in 2009. When a family chooses cremation, it is important to know who owns and operates the crematory. Your loved one never leaves our care or premises. We have trained and compassionate funeral assistants that are held to a high standard of care and code of cremation ethics when caring for your loved one.
