For funerals, we offer three levels of packages to match with your budget and your desires. Each level includes items to pay tribute to your loved one, such as a framed portrait, tri-fold brochure, thank you notes and envelopes. Our packages can be customized if you’d like something different, adding or subtracting items as desired.

Dealing with paperwork can seem like a monumental task when you are grieving the loss of a loved one, so we’re here to help with that as well. We will fill out social security paperwork on your behalf for your signature. If the deceased was a veteran, we’ll handle that paperwork as well for you to sign and receive your benefits for burial and headstone.

In addition to handling the paperwork for veterans’ benefits, we conduct a special Military Funeral Honors (MFH) ceremony with which to honor those who have served and protected our country. It includes two members from the military, the playing of Taps, and the folding and presentation of an American flag to the family or next of kin.

We also offer helpful services for family and friends of the deceased through our website. They may take advantage of the resources we list for local services if they are coming from out of town. Flowers can be sent directly from our website offering a great convenience for those wishing to offer condolences.

We serve all of Luzerne County including, Wilkes-Barre, Ashley, Hanover Township, Kingston, Forty Fort, Edwardsville, Plymouth, Pittston. Mountain Top, Laflin, Plains, and Bear Creek. We also serve Lackawanna County including Scranton, Dunmore, Carbondale, Old Forge, Blakely, Taylor, Archbald, Dickson City, Moosic, and Clarks Summit.


What the families we serve say...


Professional, dignified and courteous-from beginning to end, and then some. Our relatives and friends asked who handled Dad's funeral-that's how impressed they were.
We prearranged Dad's funeral with Brian Leffler. Brian was always available to provide info and support. When the newspaper refused to publish Dad's obituary as written, Brian went to bat for us. He persevered and my Dad's obituary was published with the wording Dad wanted. One week after Dad's funeral mass and viewing, Brian met us at Indian Town Gap for the interment of Dad's ashes. The services he provided were everything we needed and more than we expected. He made us-and Dad-look very very good. Many people actually said, "It was the classiest funeral they had every been to." My brother and I are very very happy we chose Kniffen O'Malley Leffler.
