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.

"My parent had purchased a 'trust' with Washelli-Evergreen Funeral Home, located in Seattle, WA, in 1991. subsequently Washelli-Evergreen was purchased by Dignity Funeral Services (the liability for the 'trust' was included in the purchase). My parent died in Surprise, AZ. Dignity Funeral Services Surprise (Dignity-AZ) was contacted to handle the arrangements. At first Dignity-AZ stated that the 'trust' had been cashed out - FALSE. Then Dignity-AZ stated that as the 'trust' was purchased in WA only the purchase price of the 'trust' would be recognized - FALSE. Then Dignity-AZ stated that I should pay for the services and received reimbursement from Dignity-Washelli - FALSE. Five months later my parent's remains have not yet been interred nor the headstone updated. Dignity-Washelli told me that there were sufficient funds in the 'trust' to cover all costs."

"I have used Surprise Funeral Care and have worked with Nancie Scalercio for the services of my stepmother and more recently my father and in both instances, she provided over the top first class care and compassion for me and my family. From making recommendations, to the little touches that make attending the memorial special, Nancie and her team truly care about you. I would definitely recommend them."

"Nancy provided exceptional service from time of the first phone call and throughout the entire process for my baby grandson. In the hardest time, she made the experience feel personal for our family. The Creamation location staff were also very professional, really took time to keep us informed and made another hard day feel special. I cannot speak enough to how satisfied we were with the services provided. Thank you so very much."
