Very bad experience at this cemetery. Sales personnel are like used car sales people. Very pushy. They will rip your family off in your most desperate time of life. I also found out that in section M there are wrongful burials. Babies are buried in the wrong places and markers are put on top of wrong burial spaces. How heartbreaking that parents come to visit their babies and do not even realize their not placing flowers where they think their child is buried. The funeral directors are very good, but that is it!!!
My dearest friend Kim went to Woodlawn in Orlando, to visit her son at hisgrave on Memorial day, yesterday. Woodlawn has become like most american things.Cheap and tacky....They were having a "car show" for paying customers, with DJs and all.People wandering around and all over her son's grave......And she had to park and walk a long distance to get her to her son's section as well..NEVER TRUST Woodlawn for TRULYY caring about your loved ones in this resting place.ANYTHING for a BUCK disgustingly replies....James Wilkinson
dignity??? – My father passed away in July. We met with a funeral director, slash used car salesman, 4 days after his death. This guy used high pressure sales tactics and would not or could not take no for answer. The prices and services they wanted were out of line. They charged us extra for refrigeration of my fathers remains prior to cremation which by state law can not be carried out for 3 days after death. Extra fees there. Then they tried to get us to purchase several copies of the death certificate at $12.00 a pop. Copies of death certificates are available from the State Department of Vital Records for $5.00 with the cause of death and $4.00 without. They claimed the $12.00 fee for a rush order when in fact I was able to get the copies from the courthouse before the funeral home had received them. After all that my father was finally cremated and we had requested his ashes be placed in 2 urns. A small amount in one that would be buried in his church's memorial garden and a larger amount that my mother would keep. Seemed like a simple enough request. Well when the time came to pick up his ashes, the funeral home representative said they had 4 boxes. What? There should be 2! After some checking they did determine there were only 2 however they could not locate the 2nd smaller one. After some more digging around, hopefully not literally, they determined they did not put any of the ashes in the smaller urn. They asked my mother to return the large urn to the crematorium and they would take care of the situation. It was hard enough having to deal with losing my father. It made it even harder with the lack of "Dignity" they provided. I wouldn't be caught dead in this place. And by the way, the Starbucks in the lobby...very cheezy and low class. Avoid this place for the sake of your loved ones and yours!!!
