Review of Service

The service was adequate, the funeral home seemed kind and helpful to begin with, but I found there attitude on the day of the funeral to be somewhat curt, to the point of bordering on rudeness. The home was recommended to my family, verbally, however the main reason to use this funeral home was, on the understanding that payment could be made over an agreed time period. however, after the funeral it seemed the funeral home started to demand prompt payments by phone and letter.

The above experience was not one of reflection on our loss, but became reflection on using a service that did not help the greaving process, it was more of an annoying distraction.


My advice to anyone needing this type of service, would be to spend more time exploring all your options available, cost is important yes, but avoid looking at the costs as a saving, and concentrate on the level of services provided and good attitudes, e.g sympathy, understanding, care for not only the deceased but for the relatives. Also make sure that you are looked after and not that the funeral service provider isn't just looking for a quick buck
