|Since 1895, five generations of funeral directors at the J.S. Burkholder Funeral
Home have been serving families of the Lehigh Valley in their time of need. Our family has developed a tradition
of caring by assisting the community with funeral services and by helping people to prearrange their own funeral
J.S. Burkholder Funeral Home, Inc. is family-owned and operated since 1895. We are the only funeral home in
Allentown selected for membership by Selected Independent Funeral Homes, an invitation extended only after a
thorough evaluation of our character, service, performance and facilities.
For over 115 years, the J.S. Burkholder Funeral Home, Inc., has served the families of the Lehigh Valley. We
appreciate the trust that has been placed in us. It is the policy of Burkholder's never to refuse services based
on the ability to pay. Additionally, we feel that no one should go into debt for a funeral service. It is our
responsibility to assist you in making an intelligent and reasonable decision, and to this, we are dedicated.
A funeral is a meaningful event; and, one that, properly planned, can help ease the pain of separation. It allows
family and friends to join together with one voice to give thanks for a life well lived and to take the first step
into a new life.
