Funeral Home Reviews
Alexandria, Indiana
Owens Funeral Home owner Mike Owens is a very clever man who gains a persons CONFIDENCE, then secretly changes the deal giving himself great advantage. If you must deal with him hire a good probate attorney, if not go to a different funeral home. Be careful he owns three in Alexandria and one in Summitville plus the Alexandria grave yard. I found him to be extremely dishonest and manipulative. I lost several thousand dollars.

Earl love took care of my ex sister in law and they did an absolute amazing job on how she looked, because she looked really bad at her death, Nice to deal with and very friendly. I would say this would be a great place to go in time of need.

Callous and unprofessional. They made a difficult time that much harder by their lack of helpfulness, lack of compassion and lack of respect shown to our family and our deceased loved one. I can give many examples but the three most hurtful were never offering their condolences to our family, never calling to let us know the cremation was complete, and, the most serious of the three, shipping our loved one's ashes to us in a used shoe box. They should not be in business.

On 12/5/12, I attended Ocie Sear's funeral. I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but as I sat there during the service, I vowed I would let you know. During the service, I became very, very upset with the noise coming from the office area. Do you realize that during Ocie's funeral, your phone rang THREE times. People came in and out multiple times. People were talking loud enough that I could hear their conversations in the service. I find it EXTREMELY disrespectful to the people who are grieving their loved ones. If that's going to be happening, at least shut the double doors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
