"It seems strange to review a funeral home but, my experiences here was good. I thought it was important to write about it since, it is a time when you aren't" thinking straight, need some sound advice, and want to be in good hands while making these type of decisions. My family had a funeral service for my dearest sweet Mother in September and I was extremely satisfied with the services and hospitality of . I would highly recommend our funeral director, Amyes for his help with every detail. spent numerous hours discussing our wishes, and educating us on each Dignity package and helped us through a very difficult time. I was impressed with honesty and his empathetic demeanor, and ability to stay calm and patient while we decided on how to move forward. had planned training the week of my Mother service so, , Operating Manager helped with finalizing the service. I would have to admit, I was very worried but it all worked out except for a couple of minor items. The whole process made me feel good with trusting with carrying out the final process with dignity. was always timely with information, professional, and respectful. The pricing compared to others was acceptable but, I know I am thankful that they made it uncomplicated for us, during the most difficult and sad time of my family’s life.

"Every person we had contact with concerning my dad's death and burial were so kind, so professional, so helpful. We visited the funeral home the day before" my father passed away. Since he passed away at home under hospice care, when they were contacted the following night, the two young men came very promptly. They were so courteous and so respectful. The following day, my mother and I went back to the funeral home to sign the final documents and the staff allowed us to view my dad very briefly at that time. They handled absolutely everything we needed without question and without trying to talk us into any additional services than what we wanted. Every question I had was answered in a very helpful way whenever I called. They were very patient and persistent to find the honor guard that would be at the burial - calling as many as 10 different groups before finding one. Everything was done with no pressure and so respectfully that I cannot recommend them enough.

Funeral Homes

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

It’s not something you typically want to think about, but pre-planning your funeral, or a funeral for a loved one, is an important part of planning for the future. Rip-offs and scams are an unfortunate part of navigating this ever-changing landscape. There are also new options and alternatives for funerals these days, such as a POD account.

Funeral Home reviews in Houston

This was a cremation of my mother who did not want anything 'fancy' and was to be buried in her home state of TN. The location was the reason we went with . She died suddenly and we were not prepared. They seemed fine but not great when we dealt with them to make the arrangements after her passing.

Recently ...More my brother also passed away here in Houston of cancer. This time I had a bit more time to do some research even though upon entering hospice we had listed as the funeral home. He also wanted nothing fancy, just a direct cremation. The hospice provided literature comparing funeral home pricing for traditional services and cremations. Many were very inexpensive for direct cremation, as low as five to six hundred dollars. I was a bit wary of prices so low as we had paid over $3000 about 18 months before.
Considering that I was familiar with having used them fairly recently, I decided to phone them to determine if the pricing on the document and their website was accurate and ask about any 'pre-need' discounts. I thought that surely they would immediately point out some value in their service that I had not considered and that was not offered by the lower priced funeral homes. That was not the case at all. They were very abrupt and really had a 'take it or leave it' attitude. I was quite taken aback by the entire exchange and especially by the cold and indifferent conversation. And ultimately the price had even gone up to right around $3400.

I phoned several other funeral homes on the list to determine what may or may not be included in the published prices and found that there are only a limited number of crematoriums in the area and most funeral homes do not have their own (including .) But all of the other funeral homes I contacted expressed at least some form of compassion for the situation that I was in losing my sibling who was only 47. And whether or not they had a standard script, I have to say that overall they sounded sincere. No other had the nonchalant "You saw our prices didn't you?" type of attitude.

I chose to go with and will be reviewing them next. The cost was $1295 and they were very professional and pleasant to deal with especially under the circumstances. I did not purchase ahead of time, rather I simply changed the designation on the form at the hospice to after I had spoken with them and made my decision. Chip phoned me personally after they were notified that my brother would be coming into their care and they had wonderful follow up while allowing me adequate time to provide all necessary information.

I called at a few months prior to the death of my mother to check them out and was very impressed with the straightforward and open manner I was treated. Every potential detail was explained, options listed, and a solid price given for my selected services. There was never pressure on me to choose one option over another. Afterward, ...More everything took place exactly as I wanted.

is AMAZING! It was a very positive experience, for a difficult situation, and we wouldn't hesitate to use again. I have to be honest in saying my past experience with funeral homes has been to a used car salesman, so I wasn't that or open minded ...More going into this experience - but I was proved wrong, and gladly so. My faith in funeral homes has been restored, and I am glad of it. There was NO pressure to spend more money than we could afford, NO guilt to buy better for the departed, NO attitude towards us given our limited means.
We were able to get in to make plans immediately, we didn't have an appointment and it didn't matter. They were patient and accomodating. Upon arrival we were a little skeptical that we could afford a nice funeral given the really nice offices and facilities, but don't let their fancy schmancy look fool you - they can do a wonderful funeral as inexpensive or as grandeous as you want or can afford.
We knew our budget going in as the family members had discussed it, so we were honest with the staff that we needed it rock bottom cheap. They treated us as if we were spending a million bucks regardless. They went through a list of items and marked off anything not required, then we discussed items we could handle ourselves: flowers, guest book, funeral pamphlets, etc. They didn't try to squeeze every dollar out of us, any item we could arrange for ourselves elsewhere (such as the flowers) we did and were able to save a bit here and there as we took out the middleman.
Even when we took a lot out, it was over our budget. We were honest about what we could afford, and they worked with us. The point was to make it a / for both sides, and they did. Little things like we agreed to have a viewing and funeral the same day - that enabled them to save money on not setting up both times, and so we got what we wanted while being flexible so they could save money and so could we. We also paid then and there so it was a done deal for them, so that they knew working with us got them a sale the same day - I think that helped. We were serious and committed and so were they.
We had them do embalming, a separate viewing service and separate funeral service in their chapel, the obituary on their website, transport to another graveyard, and graveside service. does have a gravepark, but they gladly serve you even if you are buried elsewhere.
Even after all the plans were made, it was two weeks before grandma passed. And I kept thinking to myself - what if they are car salesman and everything changes when it matters? No worries - they came through in flying colors in the end and made it amazing and wonderful. they picked up grandma, they coordinated with the hospice and the medical examiner, they were accomodating regarding timing of viewing and funeral, and in the end they even had the viewing Fri night and the funeral Sat AM even though we had agreed that to save money they could be same day - they offered to do them separately for free, and that was very nice for several family members. They prepared grandma wonderfuly, she was gorgeous, everything was just as we requested and went without a hitch. As we were out of town the two days between passing and the funeral, my mother in law was able to work with them on the last few details and they really handled everything for her - which made it all the more wonderful, as she was alone and didn't have the stamina too handle much.
We'll definitely use again without hesitation. These people are hard working, professional, and there when you need them.
