A Legacy of Leadership in Bethlehem Funeral Homes

James Funeral Home and Cremation Service is the successor to the former Snyder, Hinkle & Lunsford Funeral Home.  Snyder Hinkle & Lunsford Funeral Home was forced to close due to the sudden passing of the owner, John Lunsford.  John was a well-loved and dedicated Funeral Director in the Bethlehem community and was the director of the Funeral Service Education Program at Northampton Community College in Bethlehem.   John's dedication to the community and college, as well as the families he served as a Funeral Director will always be remembered.   

Harlan Hinkle, was probably the best well known of the Snyder Hinkle Funeral Home Firm.   Harlan was well known in the community as a caring dedicated Funeral Director.  He never turned away a family in need and always ensured that the families he served were treated with the utmost respect and dignity.  He is the main person responsible for the long history and success of the firm, and is the inspiration for the words of our logo "Reverence, Dignity and Respect Always". His legacy of service is the foundation for all we do at James Funeral Home & Cremation Service, an affordable funeral home serving the families of Bethlehem and the Lehigh Valley.

Louis James is the owner of James Funeral Home and Cremation Service.   He is a licensed Funeral Director with over 20 years’ experience in the field and is very active in the Bethlehem and greater Lehigh Valley Community.  You can read more about Lou under the Staff section of our website.
