Jacob F. Ruth Funeral Directors

Respectfully serving families since 1851.

Welcome to the Jacob F. Ruth website. Since 1851, we have been an independent, family-owned funeral home serving generations of families in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia and surrounding counties.

If you have any questions regarding traditional funerals, cremation options, green burials or preplanning, please contact us or stop in for a visit. We are here to help.

We have onsite parking and a handicap accessible entrance from our parking lot.

Plan Ahead

We understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult. We offer our support by providing you with two options as you consider making immediate arrangements.

Most of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children’s education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.

Understanding the benefits of pre-planning has prompted many to take the step to plan their own arrangements.

In Person
Please call us at 215-247-9090 to set up an appointment to discuss pre-planning with a caring professional.

Online Planner
Our Online Planner is designed specifically to provide you with an alternative way of considering funeral arrangements at your time of need.
