Funeral Home Reviews
Sergeant Bluff, Iowa

Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Horrible, devastating experience. Wish they had negative marks for funeral directors.

Ames, Iowa
My parents passed away recently. We used stevens funeral home both times. For my fathers memorial they rushed us and cut the memorial short by 35 minutes. People showed up after we were rushed out of there... They didnt allow people to get up and speak about my father because they were in such a hurry for us to leave early. We paid ahead of time for burial of the urns... After 3 months there is still no name on the burial site, even though plaques were paid for ahead of time.... Wish we would have gone elsewhere! Very unhappy! Also the building is very small and not well set up to have a funeral.

Buford, Georgia
I was very disappointed in this funeral home. I think they have a communication problem inside the funeral home. The owner was told not to do my moms makeup but when I arrived to do her hair and makeup I did not recognize my mom. A man must have applied the makeup because my mom looked like a clown. This was not the only problem we had. I would not recommend this funeral home to anyone. They make too many mistakes. A grieving family doesn't need additional stress...thought it was the duty of a funeral home to help relieve stress....not this one.

Ridgewood - Queens, New York
Even though it was an extremely difficult time for our family, our experience at Morton Funeral Home/Ridgewood Chapels, was extraordinary. From my first phone call with the Funeral Director, Mr. Lanza up to and including the morning at the gravesite, the Director was compassionate, professional and generated an outstanding example of what true customer service should be. Unfortunately, I did have experiences with other funeral homes during my lifetime, and they met my expectations to a degree, but I have never had such a pleasant and comfortable and dignified experience as I and my family did at the recent wake of our beloved, departed brother and uncle. Should you need these type of services, I would highly recommend Morton/Ridgewood Chapels. I would like to thank Mr. Lanza and his Staff for meeting and exceeding our expectations!
