Inglewood Mortuary Compliment - Low cost, reliable funeral services

Review by disgruntled on 2007-02-07
INGLEWOOD, CALIFORNIA -- If in the West LA area I highly recommend using the services of Inglewood Mortuary at 1206 Centinela Ave. After checking with multiple funeral homes in the area I found that their prices were well under the average, yet providing reliable and caring services. We recently buried my wife's mother and the total funeral cost was $3200 which included a beatiful hardwood casket made by Batesville (the best). I was shocked to find their embalming charge was only $130 compared to a high of $900 from one of Santa Monica's most reputable Mortuaries. I suggest that if you have a loved one that soon will be with the Lord, you do a little preparation in advance and search out funeral home prices over the internet.

Not bad, Disg! We paid almost double that back in November.

Thanks for the reminder that regardless of the area, a little advanced preparation is in order for all of us. A young friend's mother died quite unexpectedly a year ago, and she and her two younger siblings were all this woman had. I quite frankly think the funeral home took advantage of them in their grief. It happens sometimes and shame on any funeral home for suggesting things that are completely unnecessary to individuals who have never had to make these types of arrangements and had no guidance except that of the funeral home.

The Funeral Industry is a multi-billion dollor indusrty.
Funeral Homes are now owned by huge companies who buy up the small businesses but don't always tell the public. So that little small town mortuary is actually owned by one of the big conglomerates that rule the industry.
The Funeral Counselors are taught to sell, they work on sales plus comm..just like car sales. The big places that do a lot of funerals are like factories, almost like an assembly line. Pick them up, embalm, dress, cosm/hair,casket them, view, service and bury....10 to 20 bodies a day, every day. They work around the clock. The big bosses make a lot of money, as do the stock holders.
The people that do the embalming and all the HARD work make the least of anyone. Some of the worst people I have ever met work in the funeral industry.
