Funeral Home Reviews
Braddock, Pennsylvania
8/2/13 I would not recommend this funeral home to anyone. Communication between Schleifer and my family was poor. Schleifer would only speak with family regarding decisions if confronted. He thought that he should speak with the deceased's friend for decision making. Plus, I am still waiting for a corrected death certificate from 4/26/13 due to Ted Schleifer's error and he is doing nothing to try and expedite things so my aunt can get what is due to her, but Schleifer made sure he was paid upfront for his services (if that is what you want to call them.) My advice is to stay clear of this funeral home and director.

In reply to Joe Browne's complaint---Joe--We are sorry that you feel this way and understand your being upset. However, a funeral director can only advise a family on closing a casket. We cannot force a family to say yes to a closed casket. We are not ashamed of our work-we go farther than most would. We advise a family, but CANNOT force them to make a decision. We do what the family asks us to do after we have made our recommendations. We hope that your heart can rest in the fact that Tim is at peace.

I have been to several viewings at this FH. I have been horrified at how bad the deceased looked. Whoever is preparing these bodies needs more experience/education. I was there this week for a viewing and the mother of the deceased was horrified by the appearance of her son. You are devasting families and friends by the bad prepartion of the bodies. Please do something about this. It is very sad,

My family had a terrible experience at the J Allen Hooper Funeral Home. Calls and e-mails were rarely returned, even to answer the most simple questions. The person helping us actually complained to us that he was overworked. My grandmother looked terrible at the viewing and the makeup was literally cracking off of her hands. I know it was not "her" but we ended up deciding to close the casket because they did such a terrible job. I would avoid this one at all costs.

Dealing with CR and his crew is like dealing with a bunch of poorly trained monkeys. My father died very suddenly, without any true preparation in funerary matters. So you'd think that Piatt&Barnhill would take the opportunity to do the best job they could. They didn't. Created by CR and his terrible toupee our questions were greeted by a series of bumbling "uhs" and "I don't know". If my father's body wasn't already in transit I would have walked out then and know now what I do, I should have. But that was only the beginning. After countless clerical errors on the death certificates, they refused to mail them to us. Demanding that we stop in and pick them up. For being in the business of helping alleviate stress and work during a time of grief theses people, they fail immensely.
