Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"From our first meeting the First Memorial Burkeview representative was very pleasant, knowledgeable, reassuring and open to our needs and wishes. The cost of our requests/needs were reasonable and did not vary from what we had been quoted at our first meeting. This representative was very professional and was of great assistance in foreseeing areas that could have been problematic and addressing them before they became such. He and his staff provided and enabled a beautiful funeral service for our mother, and our family is truly grateful for how they have served us."

"As we did not use First Memorial for the celebration of life it would be unfair to evaluate the service."
