From generation to generation, Burton has worked closely with one of the most respected national associations — Selected Independent Funeral Homes — to offer the highest level of professionalism to families and individuals of all walks of life, religions and financial circumstances.
You will find our staff to be compassionate, caring and knowledgeable and each of our four homes to be welcoming and comforting. We provide the perfect place for your family to honor and celebrate the life of your loved one. We are dedicated to providing the support and information you need whether making arrangements in advance or at the time of a loved one’s death.
We recognize that during a time of loss families and their friends need a place where they are nurtured and cared for.
Moreover, we continually update our facilities and services to better serve you. Burton has convenient all-faith chapels at each location and we offer on-site cremation so you know your loved one is treated with respect and care.
We also offer pet loss services, cemetery memorials, and Whispering Pines Cremation Gardens, a beautiful resting place designed especially for cremated remains.

Mark and Karen
First of all your team did an awesome job in setting up the services for my mom.
Thank you Karen for coming in on your day off to help us with the arrangements. We appreciate you Mark for the use of your trailer to move mom’s furniture. Many thanks to both of you.

Dear Karen, I am so sorry this is late coming but I wanted to express to you how kind you were to my daughter on the loss of her baby. You are such a warm and caring person.
To our Burton Funeral Home family,
Thank you for everything that you have done for us. From the bottom of our hearts. You all have been helping our families for years (especially Laura)! From your assistance to your caring support during our difficult times, Thank you!-John and Amy
Thank you for your guidance in planning the funeral for my mother.
Everything was done with care and respect.
The service in your chapel and the Mass at St. Julia were very comforting to our family.

I wanted to thank you for offering and then sending ornaments in memory of my parents. It was a source of comfort in this first Christmas without them.
Thank you again.

Dear Staff of Burton Funeral Home,
Thank you for the gift of the ornament – it will be hung on the one of the family’s Christmas trees every year!

“To: Peter, There are many words I could use to express my appreciation! I want to thank you! Words can’t express how grateful I am for what you have done for my mom!
To have her look her best for the Lord, and letting me see her and to honor her. You made this happen. Your staff is a gift from God.
I never wanted this day to come so fast. When I came to Erie with my mom I had hopes and dreams for a better life. But she became ill. I had to put her in a nursing home. I never want to be without her love.
My mom, I wanted to honor her the way a daughter should. God knew this was the place for her. Many people need to know about this place. A tear comes down my face, I am blessed to know you and your staff.”
