See What Ohio Families Say About Heritage Cremation Society

The professionalism shown to me and my family was remarkable! I highly recommend them as they made a very difficult time in our lives as simple and painless as possible. Thank you from the bottom of our heavy hearts.

Raeann Carbone

I wanted to express sincere gratitude to the wonderful people at Heritage Cremation Society – Louisville. I will sum up the quality of their service in six words: Compassionate. Patient. Respectful. Calm. Kind. Respectful. Everyone at Heritage was polite and professional. Thank you for working with me to accommodate family circumstances and scheduling during this stressful time. I highly recommend Heritage Cremation Society.

G. Rost

John and Samantha were so very helpful and caring as our situation was quite unexpected. They also did not try to push us into anything more than what we were looking for or could afford. It really helped that they also filed the certificate and paperwork with social security. That saved us from having to do something that we weren’t really up to doing along with everything else. Very knowledgeable team who helped answer questions for us about what else we might have to do in the near future. I would highly recommend Heritage and have already.
