Brown's Funeral Service took care of my mother's service and it was absolutely beautiful. They were very courteous and professional, which made the situation very pleasant. Thank you so much. I recommend them to all the residents of Brunswick and surrounding counties. Job very well done!

I was very displeased with the services rendered by the Smith Funeral Service INC My relative looked horrible and she was poorly taken care of even if it was short notice never in my life would I recommend this company to anyone. I am deeply dissatisfied. I felt so much disrespect because the funeral was barely over before they pushed her into the ground. These people should be ashamed of themselves for what they did. I WILL NEVER LOOK TO THIS COMPANY AGAIN!!!!!

I would like too apologize for the comment that was made about my grandmothers funeral (McCullen) in the review that was posted a few months ago!! First and foremost my grandmother was a private woman. She didnt wont a big church funeral just something small and with family. She only wanted a graveside service which was done. And Smith Funeral Services made sure that these things were meant. Even down too picking out my grandmother plot. They did a wonderful job and my mother,aunts,uncles and myself were very happy with there work. To - Smith Funeral Home I do apologize for the negive comment that was made towards your business... Just know that the ones that were there making arrangements were happy with everything that y'all did and that is all that matters!! And Again Thank You For Everything. C.Stone
