Tom W.

My mother passed away at 2:00am. My friend recommended Magnolia Cremation Services. When I called I spoke with Mike. What a wonderful person. He explained everything to me and was the one who came to pick up my mom. The next day I was contacted by Abby! Again a wonderful person who really made things so easy. She went out of her way to answer every question I had. I could not have found anyone better!  They were $500+ less than the other places I called!  I cant recommend Magnolia Cremations enough.

Wow, I couldn’t have asked for a better group of ladies, especially Abby Elliot!
I’m even impressed with the cost of what I needed! They handled my mom with such care and respect! They did everything I requested the way I wanted and the way my mom told me she wanted. The loss of my mom is insurmountable but I know she’s watching from above and I will see her again one day!
If you’re experiencing such a loss and are looking for a great company, reasonable pricing and awesome staff please look up Abby with Magnolia Cremations!
Thank you all so very much for everything!!

It isn't really ever an enjoyable thing when you have to pick a crematorium, but these folks were the best. We had a pretty horrible experience with a different "affordable" business a few years back that made the situation go from sad to mad over five weeks. Magnolia Cremations let us do everything online, they were very upfront about their costs and prices and were very prompt. By far the best crematory experience I have ever had. Very professional staff and handy location.

I’m so impressed with the location, And the wonderful and sweet people that have helped me at this time.
I can say I have been through a lot in my life time ans I’m only 21, but having to cremate my dad was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do in my life. Magnolia Cremations have made that a lot easier. If you want my opinion I say they are an amazing place for your loved one to be taken care of as of there last resting places and even your emotions they take and consider how you feel and that means a lot to me and I’m sure a lot of other people keep up the amazing business you have going I want to give them a 5 star rating thanks for the much needed help and support you have given me.

My experience with Magnolia Cremations was absolutely wonderful. They went above and beyond all of my expectations. The staff was extremely friendly and patient with me as I had many questions about the process. They were extremely professional in this trying time for my family. The experience I had was very pleasant and I would recommend their services.

Erin H.

My mother died recently, and we went with Magnolia Cremations for her cremation. From start to finish, they've been professional, prompt and kind, and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again or recommend them to friends and family. It goes without saying that losing your mother is difficult, but having Magnolia there to handle her cremation made dealing with the "practical stuff" afterward a lot easier.

Casey Jewell

Magnolia has been very pleasant and helpful through this process. It can’t be an easy job to do, but they have treated us as well as we could’ve hoped or expected. Give them a call should you have the need.
