Service... Our Family Heritage

Since the early 1920s, the funeral home on Jonestown Road in Grantville has been helping area families with compassionate, personal service in their times of need. Our family purchased the location in 1980, and we continue to carry on the chapel’s heritage of compassionate, caring service.

Over the years, we have expanded our locations to bring our services to more families in our growing communities. Our Palmyra funeral home opened in 1988, with our Hummelstown location following a year later. In 2002, we established our own on-premise crematory in Grantville. After 33 years, the Hummelstown branch was consolidated into our two other locations. With graveside services, church services, no service options, and in-house appointments, we continue to serve the Hummelstown community.

For 40 years, the Buse family has become known in the community largely through personal recommendation for serving the families who trust us in a humble, compassionate, sincere, and professional manner. We are also proud of our reputation for providing dignified, personal funeral services at the fairest, most reasonable prices.

We believe in helping families find comfort in each other, as they celebrate the life of their loved one. Please contact us to learn more about the many ways we can assist you with traditional services, cremation, or emotional support after a funeral.

A Few Words From Our Families...

I want to express my sincere appreciation for the services provided by the Buse Funeral Home staff. My entire family and I are so grateful for the manner in which my husband's military funeral was conducted. Donna explained every detail of the process with patience and understanding. She provided down to earth suggestions and ways to eliminate unnecessary expenses and guided us personally by providing helpful business information associated with the aftermath of a funeral. Promptness, diginity, respect and a genuine desire to cover all needs are given your loved one in the kindest way possible.
