Short Funeral Services along with Berry-Short Funeral Homes are owned and operated by George and Janet Short. George and Janet Short are life long residents of Kent and Sussex Counties Delaware and have two children, Kelly Pepper of Milton, DE also a licensed funeral director and Glen Short of Norfolk, VA serving aboard the Aircraft Carrier Harry S. Truman. The Short Family has been providing their services to area communities for many years. The guiding principle at each location has been to offer compassionate, caring services designed to provide piece of mind and heart to grieving families and loved ones in their time of need.

Milton, DE

Our Milton, DE facility is nestled in the charming and historic town of Milton. The funeral home was once the residence of Governor James Ponder, the 44th Governor of the State of Delaware. He served as governor from 1871-1875. He passed away on November 5, 1897 and is interred in Goshen Cemetery, Milton. It has been the Short Families intent to keep this Stately Facility as near to period as possible and is part of Delaware's Historic Register.

Georgetown, DE

It is has been our honor to continue the professional and compassionate tradition of the Esham Funeral Home of Georgetown, DE. The Short family acquired the facility from Bill and Edna Esham in 1988. As of December 2000 the Short Family completed a two-year construction project on their Georgetown facility. Recognizing that Georgetown, the County Seat, is growing within and outside its borders, the new facility will be more than adequate to handle the needs and wishes of an expanding community for years to come.
