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.

Horrible, devastating experience. Wish they had negative marks for funeral directors.

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.
