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.

"I would recommend First Memorial Funeral services to family and friends as I felt that during what may be one of the most difficult time in a persons life, losing a loved one, they were able to handle the process with a high level of care, dignity and respect. They took their time explaining the services and answered all of our questions. We did no

t feel rushed or pressured at all. In the end we were very satisfied with the services and felt it was carried out exactly as we had hoped and as our beloved mother deserved."

"My family all commented that the service was excellent in every way, the staff were excellent and everyone thought pastor Layton was excellent too. The food provided after the service was really good, I can't think of anything that wasn't done very professionally and I would recommend this facility to anyone that needs it."
