Thank you for visiting the christman's funeral home, Inc.

Consider this a first step in discovering a caring and professional resource to help you prepare for a difficult time in your life.

Yes we need to determine how your wishes need to be fulfilled, but first we need to talk.

Many of our consultations begin with the same question, 

What do I do next?

Experience tells us this is a logical and manageable way to start. There are a multitude of combinations of services and products available. It can be overwhelming, particularly at a time of emotional stress.

That's where the Christman's Funeral Home Director and staff can be an important relief to a great burden in your life. We listen, and together determine the story that needs to be told to friends and family to celebrate a very special life.

We sort through all the details and work out a funeral service that fulfills all your wishes from start to finish, within a pre-approved budget. Perhaps it involves cremation, or it may be a traditional burial. Rest assured that we have the experience (since 1941) and the empathetic team to carry out all of your needs in an unmatched caring and professional manner.

We are particularly proud of our history of serving military families, and the special procedures related to arranging a final resting place at Fort Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. If this is your desire, please ask for details.

Feel free to visit our many website pages to give you a feel for the specifics of our products and services. Many of them, like flower ordering, can be a great convenience to you.

We really encourage you to contact us for a personal consultation. We can get to know each other well before meeting again under more emotional circumstances. Experience also tells us that a pre-planning discussion is the best way to start a trusting relationship.

We are located at 226 Cumberland Street Lebanon, PA 17042. Call for an appointment at 717-272-7431 or email at

Thank you!

Gregory A. Vaitl, Owner, Supervisor, Funeral Director
