About Us

Now celebrating over 100 years of service. 

WELukensIn 1908, Mr. W.E. Lukens purchased the funeral supplies and equipment owned by Mr. Billy Carl, one of London's first "undertakers." Mr. Lukens founded his funeral home under the principles of providing the best service he could to the families he served. The funeral home was founded at the site presently occupied by the Huntington National Bank in London.

Some time later, Mr. Lukens moved his new funeral home to a site further south on Main St. in London, and hired a new employee, Mr. Chester R. Geer. Mr. Lukens and Mr. Geer continued to serve the Madison County area from that location until 1945 when they moved to the present location on North Main St. to accommodate their growing business.

 

Now known as the Lukens-Geer Funeral Home, the firm underwent an expansion in 1950. After Mr. Lukens' death, the name was changed to Chester R. Geer Funeral Home and Mr. Geer continued to offer funeral and ambulance service to the community and laid the foundation for what has become the leading funeral home in the London community.  

CRGeerIn 1976, Mr. Geer went into a partnership with Charles W. (Bill) Eberle to form the Geer-Eberle Funeral Home. Mr. Geer and Mr. Eberle enjoyed a fine relationship until Mr. Geer's untimely death in 1981. Since that time, Mr. Eberle has striven to maintain the high standards set by the two men before him. Although ambulance service has been curtailed for many years, the dedication to the area continues to improve over time with the addition of such things as monument sales, cremation services, and pre-need funerals. Presently known as the Eberle- Fisher Funeral Home and Crematory, even cremation for pets can be arranged.

Now celebrating over 100 years of continuing service to Madison County, the Eberle- Fisher Funeral Home and Crematory looks forward to the challenges of the future by providing the same, devoted, personal service of the past.

After serving his apprenticeship at the funeral home and receiving his licenses, he became employed full-time in 1989 and has been employed here until becoming a partner in August of 2003.

Dana is a member of the Ohio Embalmer's Association and is a member of the Ohio Funeral Director's Association Mortuary Response Team.

Services

Funerals today are changing just as much as everything else in our daily lives. We are aware of this at the Eberle-Fisher Funeral Home and Crematory and are prepared to assist each family we serve with whatever their wishes may be. Some of the services we offer are: 
   
Cremations - We offer several different cremation packages ranging from immediate cremation to a complete, traditional-style visitation and funeral with cremation and subsequent earth burial. There are unlimited choices beyond the package offerings, and we have a complete display of cremation and rental caskets, urns, and urn vaults as well.   
 
Graveside Service - Many people prefer the simplicity of having services at the cemetery or burial site instead of in a church or funeral home. We can arrange this for you with or without a traditional visitation period. Visitation can also be arranged at the cemetery
 
Infant Services - Unfortunately, it sometimes becomes necessary to arrange for a funeral for an infant or child that has met with an untimely death. These situations can be especially emotionally trying and call for the expertise of a caring professional. With our experience and understanding, we can make suggestions that may prove helpful to young, bereaved parents. 
   
Memorial Service - Often, a family may desire to have a private burial or to have a cremation, followed by a memorial service where a body is not present. Contact us any time to arrange a memorial service or for more information.
   
Pre-planning - There are two steps in pre-planning a funeral for yourself or for a family member: pre-arrangement and/or pre-financing. Pre-arrangements involves the gathering of personal and service-related information and may include the selection of funeral related products and services. Pre-financing simply means paying for the selected products and services in advance, if desired. (Read more)
   
Private Burial - Occasionally, we are requested to have a private funeral. This can be immediate or arranged for sometime in the future. We can help arrange a completely private service of your choosing: from traditional services to cremation or immediate burial. 
   
Shipping Services - With today's mobile society, death can occur away from home, creating unique problems for the families involved. We are proud of our history of assisting people in such situations. With our worldwide network, we can arrange to have a loved-one returned from, or transported to, virtually any place on earth.
   
Traditional Funeral - The process of the traditional funeral consists of gathering personal information concerning the deceased and determining when and where to have the services and visitation. The traditional funeral involves the selection of a casket and usually also involves the selection of an outer burial container or vault.

We can assist you in making the necessary decisions to design a meaningful funeral service. We can take care of the necessary paperwork and can even contact the cemetery, newspapers and florist for you. (Read more)
