Funeral Home Reviews
Bridgeport, Connecticut
I recently can to knowledge of your funeral home through the media and the story regarding grieving parents attempted theft of their deceased son's ashes. I recently lost my infant son. I am disgusted with your funeral home. The funeral home that handled our son's services and cremation did not charge us a dime. They refused to accept any type of payment. Our of respect for us and what they recognized as such a significant loss they were willing to take the financial loss. Mesa Funeral Home in Grand Junction Colorado. You should take a lesson from them!!! It was an amazing gift to us to comfort us. Mr. Edgar Rodriguez to you personally, to say in your interview that you hope the family is able to find closure in their theft and not being able to get the sons ashes out of the country is terrible. That was a very mean and hurtful thing to say. How dare you use manipulation of grieve of these people's son to support your cause. And really you think you are a compassionate man to offer to reduce the fee. You should have never mentioned charging them in the first place!!!! I also understand how funeral homes work. They are a business and therefore need to make a profit. I have immediate family members who own and operate a funeral home. You sir only care about profit in the business. Your business clearly has no compassion for it's customers. This would be the last place on earth I would allow my loved ones to be handled.

Henry L. Fuqua Funeral Service has changed. The staff is not as warm as it was at onetime. What Happened? Also, there is no longer any personalization there. They use to pride temselves on the way the bodies look, but the bodies look terrible. Bring back Henry Fuqua and Joann Wiggin.

New Britain, Connecticut
Very disappointing service! Paul Shaker turned out to be a very arrogant and unprofessional funeral director, and he over charged us the amount originally agreed upon. During the funeral service, only four ushers from their funeral home came and could barely hold up the casket, leaving many of our family members gasping and hoping our (petite sized) loved one would not be dropped! If you are researching a professional funeral home, I would look elsewhere!

Dundalk, Maryland
Would not use this home. They do not care about anything.

Seneca, South Carolina
Seneca Mortuary no longer exists. Why is it printed with local funeral homes. The business closed yerars ago and the building burnt to the ground.
