About Us

our team

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.

Thank you for your guidance in planning the funeral for my mother.

We were impressed by our professionalism and kindness. Harry Weiner is a friend but he really helped my younger brother who was struggling after the funeral was over. I just wanted to say how pleased we were with Burton Funeral Home. It’s a hard time and it’s nice to know that your loved ones funeral is in capable hands. Thank you.

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.
