We have made every effort to make our facility comfortable, while providing families a respectful, especially dignified place in which to commemorate the life of a loved one. If you wish a personal tour of our facility, we ask that you call us to set an appointment.
Newly erected along the Falling Spring in 1993, The Thomas L. Geisel Funeral Home is a handsome, 13,000 square foot facility, which is totally wheelchair accessible. Our chapel is beautifully enhanced by elegant stained-glass windows, and provides a warm, comfortable setting for those we serve. Our spacious viewing rooms allow accommodations of up to three large gatherings at one time, providing flexibility to families when planning services and visitations. We also provide better than adequate parking, with room for well over one hundred cars.
Although our chapel is not intended to compete against the reverence and respect of the church, it has been tastefully designed as an option for those who do not wish a formal church setting. Conveniently located within the funeral home, it provides a dignified setting for family, friends and the community to gather together and pay tribute to the deceased.
On-site Cremation Center
For over ten years, we have been proud to operate our on-site cremation center. This addition to our facilities has made it easier to serve families in need of cremation services in Shippensburg PA, Chambersburg PA, and the surrounding communities. More importantly though, your family can rest assured that your loved one will be in our care for the entire cremation process.
Our on-site cremation center is operated by our certified team of expert crematory operators. Unlike other firms that rely solely on third party crematoriums, our cremation services are completed by members of our staff. This means that we not only oversee the process, but ensure that our staff is trained to follow best practices and adhere to a strict code of ethics and care. Your family can trust that throughout the entire process, our team will ensure your loved one is handled with the utmost dignity and respect.
By operating our own crematorium, we can also make sure that your loved one’s remains will be returned to you in a timely manner. Rather than spending unnecessary time transporting the remains to and from the crematorium, we eliminate this wasted time. Instead, your loved one is cared for faster, and the remains are returned to family promptly. In doing so, we can help you begin the healing process faster and spend more time on planning a meaningful service of remembrance.
