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.
A family business
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 joined the Dignity Memorial network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers.
