Funeral Home Reviews
Ames, Iowa
My parents passed away recently. We used stevens funeral home both times. For my fathers memorial they rushed us and cut the memorial short by 35 minutes. People showed up after we were rushed out of there... They didnt allow people to get up and speak about my father because they were in such a hurry for us to leave early. We paid ahead of time for burial of the urns... After 3 months there is still no name on the burial site, even though plaques were paid for ahead of time.... Wish we would have gone elsewhere! Very unhappy! Also the building is very small and not well set up to have a funeral.

Question Where has money given to McDermott for planning funeral expenses gone from people and why funeral home auctioned off last week?

Las Vegas, Nevada
They were friendly at first, but showed no attention to detail, they sent or Father's remains to the wrong address then stuck us with the bill to get his remains back, basically they said there were done and told us to call Fed Ex to pay and have them ship the remains to the correct address. When a loved one dies it is already a trying time, then when the funeral home you deal with makes it even harder with no compassion or willingness to fix there mistake it's just unimaginable. I would Not recommended anyone to use Desert memorial services if you want good compassionate correct service!
