Our History

Knight Funeral Home began five generations ago by Forest Henry in Long-A-Coming, New Jersey, now known as Berlin.  After 21 years the Funeral Home’s location was moved to the current location on Rich Avenue.

The Henry family operated the Funeral home until 1945 when James Knight took over the business.  In 1945, the name was changed to Knight Funeral Home and remains family owned and operated today. 

Currently, James Knight III, is the owner/director/manager with over twenty years of experience in all aspects of the funeral service industry.  James has lived in Berlin his entire life.  He is an active member of the Berlin Rotary Club, Berlin Lions, NJSFDA, WJFDA, the British Institute of Embalmers, National FDA.  James is married with one child and enjoys boating, fishing and skiing.

Our Services

A traditional funeral is commonly chosen as a way to remember loved ones.  At a viewing, family and friends can pay their respects to the deceased and comfort those who are grieving.  A funeral service or mass is normally preformed by a clergyman, and then the body is usually taken to a cemetery.

These arrangements require many decisions.  We will guide you, sharing years of experience and knowledge which will make the selections of a casket, burial vault and other decisions much easier.

At times, there is nothing traditional about a “traditional: funeral variations to what is common are not a problem.  Each person’s wishes are important and we work to provide a pleasing service that fits your needs.  That’s another way of showing our commitment to you.

Cremation is becoming increasingly popular as means of disposition.  The staff at Knight Funeral Home is able to arrange this service.

An additional benefit is peace of mind.  Making final arrangements is difficult.  The task is easier when you know exactly with whom you are dealing – someone who has gained your confidence.  We have consistently proven our ability to offer the best possible service in all other aspects of the funeral – now you can trust us to serve all your needs if cremation is a consideration.
