This was the first funeral home I had been to where I felt the funeral director was only interested in money. Small and not enough seats for everyone. He told me if I was going to stay that I needed to find a seat and sit. I informed him that there were not enough seats. He said there are 2. There were 20 of us standing. He tried to make the daughter of the deceased sit in the back. His "bed side manner" was terrible. He was rude and disrespectful. Telling everyone they needed to get to their cars after the service when they were paying their last respects. There were absolutely no one who lined up cars or even police to direct traffic going to the cemetary. He would speed up to 65 mph and many were left behind. They started the tent before everyone was there or even out of the cars. If you want a funeral home who appears to care for you, I do not recommend this Gerts Funeral Home in Brook, Indiana. - ()

North Vernon, Indiana
DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS MAN! It's a good thing his primary customers are already dead, considering how he treats his live customers. In fact if you are unlucky enough to rent housing from him, you and your family may soon wind up as a customer at his funeral home. Perhaps that's the real reason he painted over and then refused to deal with *black mold* in a home he rents to a family with young children, two of whom have serious health problems. After consistently harassing (as in, peeking into their windows, sending *late-night* texts demanding to come over right then, ETC) he decided to tell cut off their water with NO warning. He is to pay utilities, the family has always paid their rent, this was uncalled for and illegal, especially in the middle of summer!!! The diabetic child cannot wash his hands before testing his blood glucose levels. He refuses to be reasonable and turn the water back on. Hmm, is business really that bad that you have to drum up more customers?"

Sullivan, Indiana
I'd give this place 0 stars if I could. The man running the place is the rudest person I've ever met. He started taking flowers off my Nanny's casket and packing her up while we were still in the funeral home crying. He and his staff made laying my Nanny to rest an absolutely horrible experience.

Alexandria, Indiana
Owens Funeral Home owner Mike Owens is a very clever man who gains a persons CONFIDENCE, then secretly changes the deal giving himself great advantage. If you must deal with him hire a good probate attorney, if not go to a different funeral home. Be careful he owns three in Alexandria and one in Summitville plus the Alexandria grave yard. I found him to be extremely dishonest and manipulative. I lost several thousand dollars.
