Cremation - The Geisel Difference
If your family is unsure who to call for cremation, please take a few minutes to read below to learn why more local families look to us.......
While most funeral homes do offer cremation services, we own and operate an on-site crematorium, enabling us to take full responsibility for the entire process. And we've been doing it for years. As with any major spending decision, it’s always wise to weigh one’s options. Such is also true when selecting a funeral or cremation provider to make a valid “apples to apples” comparison. There are many reasons why more families choose Geisel to handle cremation services for their loved one, but here are three important ones.
From Start to Finish…….
From the first contact to request our services, on through the transfer of your loved one into our care, the arrangement conference with your family, the identification viewing time, and cremation processes, we are serving you as licensed funeral directors and cremation professionals. As a member firm of CANA (Cremation Association of North America), we hold ourselves to higher standards of practice than just anyone who might decide to open a crematory. We pride ourselves in adhering to strict and respectful crematory policies and procedures. Each individual when brought into our care is clearly labeled, personal items are inventoried, and the decedent is placed in an alternative container for identification. We feel that dignified, individual care is important and this step helps us facilitate that.
Sometimes you can never be too careful. With our kind of business, this is especially true. Not all cremation providers take the extra step of requiring a positive identification at the funeral home. We do. You see, we feel it is our professional responsibility to ensure without question that the person entrusted to our care is indeed the person to be cremated. This relieves everyone who is involved of the possibility of mix-ups. After your arrangement conference with one of our directors, immediate family members will have the opportunity to spend a few precious moments with their loved one in one of our family viewing rooms. You should be afforded this time in a private, peaceful setting… a chance to say hello one more time…. before you say farewell for now.
We are a local, family-owned, small business. In serving Chambersburg and its surrounding areas for decades, we’ve learned the importance of face-to-face contact with our client families. This really helps us understand their needs. We believe in accountability for the quality of our service, and educating our client families about all their options. We raise our own families in this community too, so we want to ensure the utmost peace of mind for the neighbors we serve.
