The building was built by Howard Ahrens who was a successful businessman in Berks County in the late 1800's. Mr. Ahrens is buried at nearby Charles Evans Cemetery upon his death in 1918. The Funeral Home was moved to this location from the 800 block of Washington Street. Irvin Cramp had relocated his business to the Centre Park address in 1940's.

Upon Irvin Cramps death Mr. Geiger continued to run the family business while Mrs. Cramp lived on the second floor apartment of the Funeral Home. Richard Geiger passed away in 1983, and left his wife Georgine and son Gregory Geiger continued to run the Cramp Funeral Home. In May of 2013 Gregory Geiger passed away at the age of 59 years old.
