Our Private, On-site Crematory in Bethlehem, PA


The Cantelmi Family continues a tradition of personal care by investing back into the community. We are proud to offer a state-of-the-art crematory & cremation facility located at our funeral home in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Even though all funeral homes advertise cremation services throughout the Lehigh Valley, 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:

  • The families in the Lehigh Valley and their comfort was our upmost concern when designing our cremation facility.
  • You will find our facilities clean, well-maintained, dignified and secure.
  • You can inspect our crematorium 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 in Bethlehem 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.

Cantelmi offers exceptional support through the entire cremation process. In order to ensure the highest level of service, we have developed an easy-to-follow 10-Step Identification, Security and Control Cremation Process. We believe this process will provide your entire family peace of mind.

Our Lehigh Valley Crematory services Lehigh and Northampton Counties and all surrounding communities.

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