The Cornelius Family continues a tradition of personal care by investing back into the community. We are proud to offer the most modern state-of-the-art cremation facility located in Chambersburg.

Even though all funeral homes advertise cremation services, most people are surprised to learn that the cremation process itself is subcontracted to third parties. This will not happen when you call us in your time of need. 

What does this mean to you?

  • Your family member never leaves our care. We personally handle the disposition of your loved one through the entire cremation process. This offers an assurance to families since we handle the entire process from start to finish.
  • We respect cultural and religious diversity and work closely with the family's clergy or cultural leader, to make sure that religious guidelines are strictly followed.
  • We cremate only one individual a time. We never preform pet cremations.
  • Your loved one will be held in our climate-controlled area until the time of service or final disposition

Our facilities:

  • Your comfort was our upmost concern when designing facilities
  • You will find our facilities clean, well-maintained, dignified and secure
  • You can inspect our facility if you wish as we have an open-door policy. For your family’s peace of mind, you may also witness the cremation process, if desired.
  • Our crematory is operated by carefully trained and licensed staff. We strictly adhere to a Cremation Code of Ethics.
  • Our state-of-the-art equipment is maintained at the highest possible standards and is environmentally safe.

Please call us with any questions, or to arrange a personal tour

We are a proud member of the
Cremation Association of North America - CANA

Code of Cremation Practice

In the practice of cremation, we believe:

  • In dignity and respect in the care of the deceased, in compassion for the living who survive them, and in the memorialization of life;
  • That a Cremation Authority should always be responsible for creating and maintaining an atmosphere of respect ;
  • That the greatest care should be taken in the appointment of crematory staff members, any of whom must not, by conduct or demeanor, bring the crematory or cremation into disrepute;
  • That cremation should be considered as preparation for memorialization;
  • That the dead of our society should be memorialized through a commemorative means suitable to the survivors.
