Funeral Home Reviews
Enfield, North Carolina
I have used Clark's Funeral Home for five of my family members and he done an excellent job. I highly recommend his services to any and everyone. He is very professional and polite. Thanks Mr. are one of the best!

Oh! man please don't use this company. They switched on us at the last minute and we had the funeral at one of there chapel it was horrid, old and a man played the old run down piano. They gave us only one wreath for my brother and no more. Especially with the money upfront that she wanted, they could have done better than that.It didn't show they cared. Just greedy

My family member has been gone for a year now but it still hurts. What hurts is that this Funeral home Director name Vicky jackson tried to get more money from my dead family member and tried to get more money from the family and the government. No paperwork was done correctly for his death with the government no honors as she said. They kept giving us a whammy prior to the viewing and the burial please don't use this company (RUNNNNNNN)

Laurinburg, North Carolina
My family is disgusted with this funeral Home ethic and how greedy one of the owners was about my family memeber death.

Brevard, North Carolina
Chris and Suzy Biecker who own M-C are the most caring and compassionate people I have ever been blessed to meet. I walked into M-C the day after my husband passed away unexpectedly and was met by Chris, who helped my son and I through everything. In the short three days between meeting Chris to the day we buried my husband, I can honestly say that I came to love these people. The service they provide is not just a job to them or a source of income... they do it because they care and want to make this process as easy as possible for the family. I urge anyone whose time it comes to deal with having to make funeral arrangements for a loved one to go to M-C... there is no way to make grief an easy experience to go through, but folks like Chris and Suzy and their staff help so much to make it bearable.
