Saint Cloud, Florida
This company's sales representative took horrible advantage of the guardian of my elderly mother,selling her a new funeral plan with new merchandise totaling almost 12000 without contacting Baldwin Fairchild to confirm the 1994 preneed contract they paid almost 9000 for.This was a horrible thing to do.They still have made no effort to refund the 4750 they should have refunded last year.I would never recommend dealing with a funeral home without researching to make sure this never haopens to your loved ones.

This funeral home sucks! I paid too much for a cremation here ($1695) and found out I overpaid by almost a $1000. What bothers me the most is the lack of compassion Barry Brewer has. It seemed like it was just business without any heart. The whole funeral home smelled so bad the first time I walked in there that I could hardly breathe. Do yourself a favor and find a different funeral home, because this one is just awful. Overpriced, not compassionate at all and smells horrible.
