Funeral Home Reviews
Melrose Park, Illinois
Terrible service, untrustworthy, state closed him down for nonpayment

Lincolnton, Georgia
The Beggs family are the nicest, most considerate people that we have ever dealt with. We had always patronized the old firm in town that has been in business for generations. We are glad that we made the right choice this time. Attentiive,compassionate, courteous, professional and first class. We wish that would expand into the Columbia County market.

My fathers services were as nice as it couldve been with this provider. The employees wore nice suits with white gloves and were meticulous with ushering the family hurriedly through the services and into the waiting cars. My fathers obituary was butchered and when we tried to have it corrected at 8:00 pm after it was published on the website, we were told it was too late and Ms Buggs rudely said she could not send in the correction to the local paper because it would cost money, even though I offered to pay for it. My fathers name is Charles but it read "Clarence" on the obituary. My sons name was misspelled. Other family members names were changed even though we tried do have everything corrected before it went to print, it was unsuccessful. The obituaries that were handed out at the funeral had my fathers name as Clarence too. We weren't allowed to mingle and talk with family and friends who had driven 6 hours or more to pay respect, because they ushered us straight from the cars to our seats, then began the service. I don't care about the nice suits they wore or the limos they allowed us to ride in. My father and my family was disrespected with all the mistakes. It was just too much. I give them 1 star because they did a fine job making my daddy look nice.
