Funeral Home Reviews
New Bedford, Massachusetts
My Aunt's service was July 3, at Rural Cemetary, at the spot her flatstone was going to be placed. All services were paid up front, but as of Jan, 2013, still no stone, Woman was very rude and insensitive, when I could finally get past their answering service, saying it was MY fault for not saying where the site was! Larry saw it, he was there! The woman said I had to call the stone engraver myself-wasn't that their job? Unpleasant experience, they just don't want to admit their mistake, I talked to other directors who agree with me, as does my attorney. Avoid this place, they just don't care...

I will forever be thanking for this funeral home. When my dad passed suddenly. I had no idea what i was doing. I called this funeral home and Peter helped me in every which way possible. He made things just a little bit easier for me. At such a difficult time!

The McCarthy brothers could not have been kinder, more professional or more helpful to our family in handling the arrangements for my father. We had a real sense of the integrity of this family as they helped us during this challenging time. In this day and age it is wonderful to find a company that truly cares and listens.
