The Griffiths Funeral Homes have been providing funeral and cremation services for the Tamaqua, Weatherly and Panther Valley areas for many generations. We have designed this site to be a simple, yet powerful tool for your use. It is our intention that your visit be uncomplicated and helpful.

I have strived to maintain all our facilities to meet the need's of all families. During our tenure we have updated all our facilities often.  In the mid 1970's during my father's tenure he removed a beautiful set of doors graced by large brass handles.  He took those handles and created bookends, and then wrote this note which is indicative of the care and meaning for which I practice this calling of "Funeral Service".

"These handles have graced a fine set of doors, through which all the drama of life has opened to and closed in.  Hands of joy and sorrow, emnity and friendship, purpose and despair, each closed firmly the handle, pressed the lock and passed through. The predominate handgrip was of compassion for fellowman and family.

I do not ascribe to be a tailsman, but do believe that some tangible object can recall love and inspire persons." 

With this thought I thank all for your trust and friendship. 

Certainly, if your preference is to speak to our staff directly,we are available 24/7 and welcome calls or personal visits anytime.
