"Our overall experience with Dignity Memorial in Anniston was exceptional in every aspect. We were dealing with four cities, Huntsville, Birmingham, Anniston and Jacksonville, That, in and of itself was a bit overwhelming to navigate, but your funeral director was so personable, friendly, and helpful during the entire process that he made everything so easy and accommodating for our entire family. Thank you for 'all' of the help we received in obtaining a wonderful minister as well as the work staff that was there from beginning to end. We so appreciate your kindnesses."

"Gray Brown Funeral Service went far beyond the means of doing their job. They were very attentive to my family's needs. Whom ever done my moms make-up and hair done a wonderful job. (Unlike other funeral homes that cake make-up on so much the deceased doesn't look real) She was beautiful. They handled all my request the way I asked. I'm very thankful to them for all the grace and dignity they showed. Thank you again for a wonderful job."
