Welcoming funeral home for all
Bennett and Houser is a warm and welcoming two-story building with ample parking in the adjacent lot and a variety of areas to suit your funeral needs and wishes. In 2019, the facility’s exterior was renovated to feature new siding and beautiful neutral stone.
Our funeral home offers two visitation rooms that can be used for both visitations and services. The large visitation room accommodates 80 guests in chair seating and includes a flat-screen television to share personalized digital presentations. The small visitation room is ideal for more intimate services or as overflow space for services that require additional seating. The small visitation room comfortably accommodates 60 people and includes a projector.
Other areas of the funeral home include an arrangement room where families can discuss funeral arrangement details in a private setting; the family room, which offers a semiprivate space for families to gather; and the sun porch, an enclosed lounge with large bay windows and comfortable couch seating.

Bennett and Houser Funeral Home, Inc., has served generations of Clearfield, Pennsylvania, families for more than 60 years. Founded by Harold Bennett in 1957 and managed by him and his wife Margaret, our funeral home was built at the present location at 312 East Locust Street. Over the years, three additions were made to the original structure, expanding the building to better serve the community.
Growth and expansion
In 1973, Martin Houser joined the funeral home and partnered into the business in 1977. At that time, the name changed to Bennett and Houser Funeral Home, Inc. In addition to traditional funeral services, we also offered cremation services, an aspect of our business that has increased over the years.
