Original review: Nov. 28, 2018

My parents signed up for National Cremation & Burial Society. They planned this, all they wanted was their body to be picked up, cremated, and sent to Arlington. We appreciate that nobody tried to give us any religious consult in everything as we're atheists. When I called National Cremation, they came and picked up the body, they gave me all the information I needed, set everything up to go to Arlington, and they didn’t bother me. They were perfect, just the way I liked it. Simone was amazing. The interactions I had in West Palm Beach with her and her team were flawless. Everything was done correctly, honestly, and on time. My parents died within a year of each other and each time was handled professionally, quickly, expediently, and with very little chit-chat. I was happy with National Cremation at both times.

I liked National Cremation's location. The man that was there, Darren, was excellent. He was very understanding and kind. Don't hesitate to go with National Cremation. They were very considerate and thorough, and they handled everything. The pricing was very fair, too.

It was a pleasant experience with National Cremation. Everything went very smoothly. Everything that I asked for was done. We had a beautiful service at the National Cemetery for military and everything was handled. I’m a detail person, and I double-checked, and everything was already done for me.

We signed up with National Cremation four years ago and I have had an excellent experience with them. Their team is very good at their job. The pre-planned service was convenient and all was taken care of. They were very professional, low-key and not religious or sappy. They had a good personality and there was humor at times when it was necessary.

My parents bought a plan with National Cremation and my mother dealt with them when my father passed away 15 years ago. They were very helpful with my father’s burial as well as with my mother’s. When she was ill, I talked to Cindy, the gal in the office, who answered the phone. Indira, the agent, was outstanding and the information she gave me was very clear. If I made mistakes on some forms, she would notify me and send me the correct things to fill out. The experience with them was wonderful and they were great.

My father passed away rather suddenly, although not unexpected. We had done no preparation for this. I called them because they were close to where my dad had passed. Jeff could not have been nicer and any more comforting. They had someone at the nursing care facility within hours and she, Jessica was lovely. The questions that had to be asked were done with consideration and empathy. When I had to go to the office to make cremation decisions I never felt as I was be 'upcharged' for anything. The cremation was done in a timely manner and when I had to go pick up the remains, I felt such care and empathy for my feelings. I would recommend this business any time! Many thanks to them for all they did for me and my family during this difficult time.

I couldn't have asked for anyone better than Catherine to help me through the process and arrangements for my father in law. I had other terribly stressful family circumstances happening and she was most understanding, like an old friend. I'm very grateful for everything she did and I thank the entire staff. Everyone was awesome!

Original review: Nov. 18, 2018

My mother's cremation was performed by your company recently. I was mailed her remains, which arrived intact. My complaint lies with the fact that Brendan, the person I communicated with who handled this cremation, did not notify me of the date my mother was being cremated in advance. I remember asking him about this at the time the arrangements were made over the phone. I would have appreciated a phone call telling me what date she was to be cremated so I could have said a prayer. It turned out she was cremated on Friday (I was told) and I was informed by a young woman who called on Tuesday I believe that the cremated remains were ready to be shipped. I was very surprised the cremation took place as quickly as it did, as I had been told it could take up to 15 days.

I expressed my dismay at the time and also in talking to Brendan who I called afterward. It would have been nice to know the date she was being cremated. Unfortunately for me this did not go as I had assumed it would happen and the experience felt impersonal and very business-like, rather than what it actually was, which is the death of a loved one. Your company also handled another cremation for me in 2010 of Leslie Stephen Ross and I kind of remember now that I was not told the actual date of cremation back then either, which caused me further grief. At that time, I was living in FL and you performed the service, which was OK. I wish I had a better report to give but I will say that the remains arrived in a timely manner and intact.

I grew up not too far from National Cremation and other people who had passed have used them before. Having used them before and not having any problems as well as always seeing that they had done an outstanding job made me automatically go to them without even considering anybody else. Also, my interactions with the staff of National Cremation are excellent and beyond my expectations.

My experience was fantastic this time and better than I had expected. My father passed and I had never actually had to put the service together myself. I walked in, not knowing anything, and I spoke with Jeffrey. He was amazing, basically held my hand, and did everything possible. My mother and the rest of the family were so pleased at his professionalism and his absolute kindness in dealing with the whole thing. He handled A to Z and everything we could possibly imagine. So, if you need a facility, I recommend National Cremation highly. They take care of the details and they allow you the time that you need to grieve.

When I first called National Cremation, it seemed to be the right place to go with, considering the young lady who answered the phone and a couple of reviews. Lorraine came and spoke with us. It turns out that it was the day before my mother’s passing, and we were able to fill out the paperwork and pay. Lorraine waited while we went to the bank to get the certified check, and I thought that was cool that they came to the house. The cremation wasn’t costly and there was no hoopla. Everything went as far as perfect could go in that situation. I couldn’t even believe how smooth everything went. It was our first experience with cremation. I know now that I’ll be cremated just based on there were no frills. All of that that goes with burial is totally unnecessary.

National Cremation has been on my radar and it has been part of the last thing we needed to do prior to the diagnosis of my husband's illness. But we never got around to it until it was done at last minute. We met Karen and she was an earth angel because of her compassion, her understanding and the way she dealt with my two adult sons. As a nurse, I know that having done this many times with so many families over the decades, it takes a special person to be able to handle people in all stages wherever they are.

She's a gem and that's one factor that made us decide to go with them. She presented everything from soup to nuts. It was a lot of information to take in but the way she did it in sections and just made sure that we understood each part before she moved on was amazing. We've also heard good things about other people that have dealt with them. I highly recommend National Cremation and the Sarasota office and when I get back from out of town, we're also gonna do the preplanning for me.

My mother had set up all the arrangements with National Cremation before she passed away. We dealt with Lisa and she was very good, professional, kind and understanding. She made it quick and easy for us so there were no uncomfortable moments which I was really appreciative of. National Cremation is definitely the way to go and is a much better way of handling affairs like that.

I and my family were very pleased with the care of the transporting of his body from our home to their facility.

I called National Cremation from the hospital when my wife unexpectantly passed away. A representative met me at the hospital within an hour to get the process started. A day later I met with Stephen ** who was extremely helpful in guiding me through the cremation process. He was very professional, knowledgeable, caring, and friendly which made the task so much easier. His help and that of the staff at the Memorial Service was simply outstanding.

We had an elderly man come to our home to talk to us about cremation pre-planning - He used curse words while talking to us - asked us if we liked jokes and told a very discolorful joke - I was appalled - We would not buy from him because of this - then when we got to checking things out - there are many other places here in Tucson that are much less expensive - maybe it was a backdoor Blessing that he was so vulgar.

Debra, we sincerely apologize for the poor experience that you and your husband received with our sales representative. That is not how we want our company to operate.

Now, it is our understanding that our Sales Regional Manager for the Arizona area was in contact with you and took the full blame for your poor experience and Paul will make sure to make this better for you and your husband. I hope you are kind enough to give us another chance. Again, we deeply apologize for any dissatisfaction you experienced. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

We had used National Cremation when my grandmother passed away and also with my father quite a few years ago. We had known about their services and what they had to offer before. We've taken advantage of their pre-planning services and we didn't have to struggle with what we were going to have to do when my mother passed recently. Things were taken care of pretty much in one phone call. The cremation team members were all very professional and very sensitive to what we were going through. It has been an excellent experience overall. We've also already recommended them to other folks.

National Cremation & Burial Society had the most compassionate people ever. They were top notch and they were wonderful. I heard about them when I went to a funeral. A friend's son passed away from a motorcycle accident and his passing made me think that I don't have my cremation stuff ready. I don't want my son to deal with any of that stuff. So we had a woman come and chat with me and my mom about the end times and how you could pay ahead. We did the paperwork, made the phone call, and then National Cremation took care of it all.

When my mom passed away at a facility, a gentleman showed up within minutes and they whisked me out of the room because some hospice was there. Still, they were very careful not to make me feel like something weird was happening. I was still in shock of my mom passing right in front of me and they have the empathy and ability to show care and concern. It wasn't made up or condescending. They have the most wonderful people ever, and the person who took care of me was so compassionate while I was having a meltdown. Her name was Barbara and she did the paperwork while I was bursting into tears.

During that time, she didn't make me feel like I'm stupid or what. In fact, I felt that my mom went out with dignity with what she did. National made the transition for me easy. They even have something that they do, like the twelve stages of grieving, which was very helpful for me, that I wasn't expecting. In closing, it's been a big pleasure working with National. I would tell anybody who is thinking whether they're gonna be buried or cremated about them.

They were beautiful. The guest book also had pictures, poems, and psalms. We thank you for your time, caring and the beautiful products. The Urns with the doves and all the jewelry.

My dad had a contract with National Cremation and when he passed away, we called them. We spoke with Mallory and she answered all our questions. She was super nice about everything, knowledgeable and put us at ease with the process. She made the whole thing a lot better than it would have been had she been not as accommodating to our questions. Nobody was prepared for a tough time such as this and she made a difference as well as the receptionist who already knew my name every time I called. It takes a special person to do the job, and it takes an extra special person to do it well and almost change the tone of the situation from something that's horrible to something that's tolerable. There were quite a few little details that I wanted taken care of that I came up with later and Mallory always took my calls.

After everything was said and done, and when we already had my dad's remains, she called just to see how we were doing to see if we had any more questions which I found to be absolutely beyond my expectations. National Cremation provided top-notch service. I have no complaints and only compliments to them. We were very happy with the service and the help. It was an excellent experience.

My mom had prearranged her information with National Cremation & Burial Society. We had hospice services and my mom was staying with us at the time of her passing. I called National Cremation and I just wanted to check to make sure everything was in line and I knew what I was supposed to do. Then, when my mom passed, I called hospice and a nurse came who took over and did everything. She called National Cremation, and then the folks arrived about an hour later and took my mom's body. Then the next day, I went into National Cremation's office here locally and it was great. It was about a half an hour meeting with them. The lady came out and she said, “Here’s the deal. Everything’s paid for.” She knew exactly what the package involved. Also, she was awesome with her direction and getting everything we needed, and letting us know as far as the death certificates and how many death certificates.

We used National Cremation for Dad's remains. They did a great job so we came back for Mom. They answered the phone in the middle of the night and picked up Mom's remains within a couple hours. Next day Ronny respectfully explained all the options, filed for death certificates and provided a competitive price. I thought I was prepared for this moment; I wasn't. How nice it is to have a loving professional like Ronny to help with such details. Thanks Ronny!

Although my husband and I had made arrangements for cremation a number of years ago, it was difficult when the time came to follow through on those arrangements for my husband of 76 years. At the National Cremation location in Ruskin, Florida, I and one of my daughters met with Indira ** who was not only efficient and knowledgeable but also concerned and very caring. Indira personally delivered the ashes to our church and met with me in my home. I am truly grateful.

I was looking for something for my mother and Jim, National Cremation & Burial Society's agent, gave me the information. I knew him and I trusted him. National Cremation had good reviews, I liked how long they have been doing business and their preplanned services are well organized. When my mom passed away, National Cremation did everything. I had the card. I called in and then in a matter of an hour and a half, they were at the hospice and then they took my mom. It was well done.
