To better serve the Huntingdon Valley community, Lamb Funeral Home was built on the grounds of Forest Hills/Shalom Memorial Park in 1996. The funeral home was recently renovated and is dedicated to celebrating every person’s life with dignity and respect. .

Our team members are well-versed in a wide variety of burial traditions and rites and speak Vietnamese, Russian and Hebrew. Although anyone can be buried at Forest Hills, we have gardens especially for those of the Christian faith. Forest Hills also features sections for Asian, Muslim, Catholic and Indian families.

Shalom Memorial Park is dedicated to members of the Jewish faith and specializes in providing burial services according to Jewish tradition. We understand how important it is to provide a prompt burial after the loss of a loved one, and we promise to be there for you in your time of need.

Many options available
