Built on the grounds of Forest Hills/Shalom Memorial Park in 1996, the funeral home is a beautiful place to celebrate a loved one's life. Situated on 234 acres, Forest Hills/Shalom Memorial Park has been the cemetery of choice for generations of Huntingdon Valley families.

Working together, the funeral home and cemetery allow you to take care of all your funeral and burial arrangements in one convenient location.

History

Lobby at Lamb Funeral Home Inc.After serving his country during World War II, Thomas C. Lamb returned home and enrolled in mortuary school. In 1954, the Thomas C. Lamb Funeral Home opened at its original location on Bustleton Pike in Feasterville, Pennsylvania.

In addition to running his funeral home, Thomas was the Bucks County coroner from 1958 until 1962.

When Thomas died in 1970, his wife, Jane Lamb, continued running the business under a widow's license. Jane’s son, James C. Lamb, helped her run the funeral home until he became a licensed funeral director in 1982.

In December 1994, Lamb Funeral Home relocated to Huntingdon Valley and became a Dignity Memorial provider.

"From all comments afterward, I can tell you that as a family we all felt well served with compassionate care that was extended to us by the Lamb staff. From the time we arrived, there was sufficient time to greet family and friends. Our facilitator Julia, was totally committed to delivering a moving eulogy that modeled a remarkable description of our father Karl's life. She choose poems and psalms read, that we all could relate to. The procession to and reception by Director Jim Lamb, at the cemetery with Honor Guard awaiting us, was especially moving. There was care shown at the graveside for the mourners for safety of footing on the uneven turf. Once again, Julia delivered a sweet graveside prayer and closing. Director Lamb coordinated our entire event with care and compassion. We shall always remember the exceptional level of care shown on this special day."
