Funeral Home Reviews
Oakland City, Indiana
John and everyone were wonderful to our family. We thank you for helping us in this difficult time.

This was the first funeral home I had been to where I felt the funeral director was only interested in money. Small and not enough seats for everyone. He told me if I was going to stay that I needed to find a seat and sit. I informed him that there were not enough seats. He said there are 2. There were 20 of us standing. He tried to make the daughter of the deceased sit in the back. His "bed side manner" was terrible. He was rude and disrespectful. Telling everyone they needed to get to their cars after the service when they were paying their last respects. There were absolutely no one who lined up cars or even police to direct traffic going to the cemetary. He would speed up to 65 mph and many were left behind. They started the tent before everyone was there or even out of the cars. If you want a funeral home who appears to care for you, I do not recommend this Gerts Funeral Home in Brook, Indiana.

I'd give this place 0 stars if I could. The man running the place is the rudest person I've ever met. He started taking flowers off my Nanny's casket and packing her up while we were still in the funeral home crying. He and his staff made laying my Nanny to rest an absolutely horrible experience.

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.
