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 mother had a pre-need plan when Connally Compton from the mid 1980s. However, she had since moved several hours away. As the end became imminent, I called the funeral home for advisement since I had no idea how distance would affect her plan. Frank Hesbrook returned my call, expressed his condolences, explained the process in simplistic detail, and then told me to focus on my remaining time with my mother and let him worry about transport and any other details. He said he would handle it, and he did. When the time came, Frank went above and beyond. He answered questions but never pressured me to make one choice or another. In addition, he called regularly to ask how I and my family were doing and to see if we had any questions. Even after the funeral, he has continued to be supportive even though his job is technically finished. When I discovered I needed a copy of my father's death certificate from over forty years ago, I called Frank for help. He knew exactly what to do and took care of it immediately. At no time during my interactions with Frank or any of the Connally Compton Funeral Home staff did I feel as if my needs were ignored or were secondary to those of anyone else. They were there to help me every step of the way."

"Providing the most genuine ambience and atmosphere service listed! Immediately greeted with professionalism and sincere empathy to our situation. They were very informed and prepared to answer all our questions and doubts. Provided a clear and trustworthy guidance above all the confusion and distraught we are emotionally going through after losing our mom. Thank you in the truest form."

"Frank Hesbrook went above and beyond to ensure we received an exceptional level of care. My grandmother looked so beautiful in her casket. Every detail of the entire service seemed just as important to him as it was to my family. I will be forever grateful for him ensuring that the hardest experience in my life was as beautiful and smooth as it could be. He ensured my grandmother received the dignity she deserved. I love his patience with me as I have never planned a funeral before and while doing so my heart was broken and sad. I am so thankful for his graceful demeanor, and he made sure I fully understood every step of the way. I was told by others how expensive funerals can be and how funeral homes try to take advantage of you. I never felt that way with Frank, yes a funeral can be costly, which I guess is expected in this business, but I never felt as though I was taken advantage of or that the price of anything was more than it should be, so I really appreciated that. Thank you."
