They never tried to up-sell us but did always make sure we knew about various options available to us even when those options might be a less-expensive approach to what we were thinking.

Don't become a victim of fraud when you're at your most vulnerable.

Knowing yourself and giving yourself permission to request others to respect your process are very important, says Sabbath. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List Member Heather B. of Salt Lake City, Utah)

When you experience loss, it is important to be able to process grief in your own way. Here are five steps to help discover what your process is.

Experiencing a death in the family causes emotional turmoil, and planning that loved one’s funeral may add even more anxiety. Knowing what to expect upfront can prevent you from paying too much during an already stressful time.

Funeral Home reviews in Boston

They were very helpful and had been very helpful. I last spoke with them after I had ordered some scatter cubes and went there to have them build the scatter cubes. They got my first order of scatter cubes wrong and started to charge me for them. I had paid up front and was going to cancel payment, but they offered to correct it and gave me a discount on the new ones. I agreed to that. They seemed very sincere and I did not get a false vibe from them so I would say they did a good job.

Contrary to another review I recently read on your site,
Boston Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
helped us during a very difficult time recently through the loss of a loved one in

2015.
Boston Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
Root and her team were exceedingly professional, compassionate, and took their time to answer all of our questions. Not once did we feel any pressure to add or upgrade services etc. They helped us locate just what we wanted from the casket to special family only calling hour arrangements. They were patient in explaining our options and listened intently to our wants. Their attention to detail and follow thru was impeccable. During such a difficult time, it's important that our family was focused on just getting through the event and being with our loved ones. I never one had to think of all that was going on in the background. They were precise in their directions to us during all aspects of the funeral and burial. Having grown up in Brockport, I can personally attest that the new owners did, and I'm sure will continue to - bring a heightened level of professionalism and service to Brockport residents and the surrounding communities. Thank you, The Redings

I spoke with them to get prices for cremation. I have a very old dog who is not in good health and we know the end is near. we do not want our pet put in a plastic bag and thrown in a hole in the ground. They talked to me about the prices and how I should contact them when the time comes. The person I spoke to was very supportive and comforting. We will definitely use them when it is time for our precious baby to go.

It could not have gone any better. He provided cremation services, ordered a beautiful urn using the custom design I sent him, ordered flowers, made arrangements for the dove release, and sent her cremains to her final resting place in another state.

Overall it went very well. Mom and Dad prearranged their caskets and plot several decades ago. So I had to arrange and pay for the rest. Based on Mom's wishes, we selected burial without funeral home service, but with a graveside service. The small chapel was prepared for the service when we got there, and they even had a small cooler of cold bottled water available, as it was a warm day. The staff stood by and did not become impatient or try to hurry our service for Mom. Upon completion, they carefully and respectfully moved her casket to graveside for internment. Upon completion, the site was soon restored with sod to original condition.
With transfers and preparation and director fees it totaled $3080. Opening and closing ran about $1400. They also arranged for a local pastor to conduct the graveside services for a $200 fee plus death certificates for $10 each.
Our director,

My father contacted

in the 1990s to pre-plan (and pre-pay) his funeral. He decided to make his arrangements after my mother had to make and pay for last minute funeral arrangements when my grandfather passed away. At the time, he found the

staff to be very helpful with the pre-planning process. When my father passed away in June 2015, I contacted
Boston Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
to execute on my father's funeral plan. The company was very responsive and friendly. They responded quickly to my phone inquiry on Sunday afternoon. When my sister and I went to meet with them the next day, they had all of my father's plans ready for us to review. They executed on my father's plan without issue. Even though my father had extensive facial damage (due to mouth cancer), the mortician was able to make him look like he did pre-illness. When my father was laid to rest, he looked very peaceful. The funeral coordinator,

, was very helpful. Due to family mobility concerns,
Boston Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
recommended that the services be held at the R.J.

facility (which is part of the same company). He also coordinated with the cemetery and church for us. He also made some restaurant recommendations for the post-funeral lunch. All of his recommendations were good. As I noted, my father had pre-paid for his funeral expenses. There were no last minute surprises or unforeseen expenses. Although it is never easy to

Everything proceeded smoothly on time. All members of the staff were very professional and caring. All phone calls were answered in person, and all questions were answered in a caring manner (without rushing to get rid of you).
