New Hampshire’s Top Rated Local® Funeral Homes & Services Award Winner: Anctil-Rochette & Son Funeral Home

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Anctil-Rochette & Son Funeral Home is a 2019 award winner for funeral homes in New Hampshire!

If you’re looking for a funeral home that can guide you through the process with care and compassion, look no further than Anctil-Rochette & Son Funeral Home.

Anctil-Rochette & Son Funeral Home has received dozens of reviews on multiple verified sites with an average rating of 4.84 stars, earning them an outstanding Rating Score™ of 92.43 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five funeral homes in all of New Hampshire!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“I cannot say enough good about Eric Rochette, who handled my brother’s arrangements in October 2012. Eric was kind, sensitive, caring and took care of everything with little guarantee of the money. It took me almost five years to pay the bill, and he never said a word. The circumstances around my brother’s death were very stressful. Eric was supportive and there at every turn. [He’s a] wonderful man. I met his father later, and he, too, is terrific, just what you need when a beloved family person dies. Thank you.” – C.H.

Not Your Average Funeral Home

Paul Rochette, owner of Anctil-Rochette & Son Funeral Home, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Anctil-Rochette & Son Funeral Home apart from the many other funeral homes in New Hampshire. Here’s Paul’s response:

“We are family owned, and we take great pride in treating every family as though they are part of our family. And they truly all become family to us. We are fortunate to have an amazing staff. For each of us, this is not just a job; it’s a calling — a lifestyle. What that translates to for our families is that we care to our core about them, their loved one that has passed away and every detail that is involved in helping them say goodbye and honor their loved one. As times have changed, families’ needs and wants have changed as well. We do our best to adapt to current trends and new traditions.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Anctil-Rochette & Son Funeral Home and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Paul had to say:

“Our mission is to serve the families in our community. We take great pride in helping ALL of the people in our community and tailor our services so that everyone, regardless of financial or social status, has the opportunity to say goodbye to their loved one.”

Paul went to add:

“On a more personal level, I have been fortunate to work with the youth in our community refereeing basketball and umpiring baseball. I was an NH State Representative for four years and currently sit on the State Board of New Hampshire Funeral Directors. As a business, the staff, my wife and I have volunteered our time at our local Senior Center, take part in the Power of Flowers (an organization that takes floral donations from families after the funeral service and makes arrangements that they deliver to the patients in hospitals, nursing homes, etc.) and make ourselves available 24/7 to guide, counsel and console.”

Building Success by Treating Each Family as They Would Their Own

When we asked Paul about Anctil-Rochette & Son Funeral Home’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he said:

“We are grateful to every family that chooses to come to us, and to those who decide to leave recommendations. We do not ask our families to leave feedback on social media, such as Facebook, Yelp or Google. We have just been very fortunate that our families want to share their experience with others.”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Anctil-Rochette & Son Funeral Home has spread the word about who they are and what they do by advertising in the local Telegraph and in church bulletins, by working closely with the local police and fire departments and donating and sponsoring the programs they have in place, and this year, they’ve been honored by their local Senior Center to be invited to give information seminars.

Paul added:

“But honestly, treating each family that comes to us as we would our own and hoping that they tell their friends and family about their experience with us is our best form of marketing and how we have been able to continue to grow.”

Clearly, Paul knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Listen to the people in your community and adapt your services to their needs. Don’t be afraid to work hard. Go above and beyond. Always be compassionate and show kindness. Be honest and fair. Take care of yourself, so that you will be at your best to serve others.”


Congratulations to the team at Anctil-Rochette & Son Funeral Home for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Paul, for taking the time to speak with us!

Washington, DC’s Top Rated Local® Funeral Homes & Services Award Winner: Tri-State Funeral Services

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Tri-State Funeral Services is the number one funeral home in all of Washington, DC for 2019!

If you’re looking for a funeral home in Washington, DC that’s worthy of your trust, look no further than Tri-State Funeral Services.

Tri-State Funeral Services has received dozens of reviews on multiple verified sites with an average rating of 4.81 stars, earning them a tremendous Rating Score™ of 92.12 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for being ranked the number one funeral home in all of Washington, DC!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Mr. Milton Tellington, the owner of Tri-State Funeral Services, and his staff are the epitome of excellent! They are compassionate and caring as well. I have used other funeral homes in the past, but not anymore. This funeral home is a blessing to anyone they provide service to. We really appreciate how this company helped us during our time of bereavement. Thank you so much!” – B.B.

Not Your Average Funeral Home

We wanted to know what makes Washington, DC’s number one funeral home so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Milton Tellington.

The first question we had for Milton was what makes Tri-State Funeral Services unique compared to their competition in Washington, DC. He pointed to the fact that they care, the quality of their service and their affordable prices.

Milton went on to say:

“I’m upfront with people. I tell them what my price is, and… I have a reasonable cost for funerals or cremations. …I use the top-of-the-line caskets and materials, and they appreciate that.
We take our time and walk them through everything, and they seem to like that and be very peaceful at the end…”

We also asked Milton about Tri-State Funeral Services’ mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Milton told us that he gives back by being there for his community and by adopting and cleaning up the block they’re located on. They also reach out to neighborhood churches and offer a place to hold chapel services for those that don’t have a church home.

Building Success by Offering a Sympathetic Ear

When we asked Milton what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at Tri-State Funeral Services, he told us that he has a sympathetic ear and provides quality service at the price people are looking for. He added:

“We take our time with families. Whether they use our services or not, we try to give them the information they need, because they are experiencing a death and they need to know what direction to go in. Education is one of the key things, and when people don’t have it, they can stumble, fall and get misled, leaving them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them…”

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way Tri-State Funeral Services has. Here’s Milton’s advice for them:

“You have to treat people right and give good service. …Treat people right and take care of the things in a timely fashion, and they will appreciate that.”


Congratulations to the team at Tri-State Funeral Services for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Milton, for taking the time to speak with us!

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Barnes Friederich Funeral Home stand apart from its competitors. Vincent said:

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“We had just moved here in 2010 and lost our daughter in a car wreck. Chris was wonderful with our family on the arrangements and all that was going to take place. He and his crew really helped make a tragedy better because of the care they provide. Many blessings to you and your family and staff for caring. We are forever grateful.” – K.P.

Not Your Average Funeral Home

We wanted to learn all about Craddock Funeral Home and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Chris Craddock, who co-owns Craddock Funeral Home with his mother and son.

The first question we had for Chris was what is it that sets Craddock Funeral Home apart from their competition in Oklahoma. Here’s Chris’ response:

“We are very untraditional — no organs and sad music. People play what music they would want; we serve wine at the visitation if the family wishes, and it’s more of a party atmosphere if that’s what the family chooses — to celebrate life a little more untraditionally. But we also serve traditional families as well. We built a new facility in 2008, with an in-house florist for flowers and memorials. We have a column bearing with a memorial wall where people can put the ashes of loved ones and come back to visit and remember.”

Chris went on to tell us that his grandfather started Craddock Funeral Home in 1923 and that the home is in its fourth generation of ownership.

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Craddock Funeral Home and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Chris had to say:

“We just want the community to know that they can come here and be safe to grieve and celebrate somebody’s life.”

Building Success Through Facebook and Word of Mouth

Craddock Funeral Home has gotten their name out there and grown through Facebook and word of mouth.

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Craddock Funeral Home has. Here’s Chris’s expert advice for them:

Congratulations to the team at Craddock Funeral Home for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Chris, for taking the time to speak with us!

Their assistance along the way is very relaxed and reassuring. Going beyond expectations, they were taking calls outside of normal business hours and during the weekend. I have to shout out Virginia for being an absolute peach and diligent aid during the time of bereavement. Nashville is blessed to have a team like this ready, willing and able to make these see-you-later services as stress-free as possible. LOOK NO FURTHER, YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED.

Not Your Average Funeral Home

We wanted to learn all about James Funeral Home & Cremation Service PC and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Louis C. James.

The first question we had for Louis was what is it that sets James Funeral Home & Cremation Service PC apart from their competition in Pennsylvania. Here’s Louis’s response:

“What sets us apart from all funeral homes is that the level of service and personal attention are probably higher at my funeral home for the price than what they’re paying at other funeral homes. They get more personalized attention, and we provide better service; that’s the bottom line. I try to work within their budget. Just because they’re coming to my funeral home and because my prices happen to be lower than other funeral homes in the area, doesn’t mean that they’re sacrificing service for personal attention.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at James Funeral Home & Cremation Service PC and how they work to make the world a better place. Louis told us that he and his team try to stay very active within the community. They are involved with the Catholic church, the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Knights of Columbus and the Equestrian Order of the Knights of The Holy Sepulchre, as well as the Bethlehem Police Department, just to name a few of the organizations they are involved with.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, James Funeral Home & Cremation Service PC has gotten their name out there through word of mouth and community involvement.

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation James Funeral Home & Cremation Service PC has. Here’s Louis’ expert advice for them:

“If you give families good service and if they see a value in what they’re paying for your services, then the people will come to them. You don’t have to ask them to do online reviews. You don’t have to push online reviews. As long as you are doing your job and you are doing what you’re supposed to be doing, the families will leave the reviews on their own…”


Congratulations to the team at James Funeral Home & Cremation Service PC for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Louis, for taking the time to speak with us!

Thank you is not enough; please accept my gratitude.” – Geraldine P.

Not Your Average Funeral Home

We wanted to learn all about Bright Funeral Home and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Kenneth Bright.

The first question we had for Kenneth was what is it that sets Bright Funeral Home apart from their competition in Rhode Island. Kenneth told us that he’s been running around the home since he was a kid, and that his father and uncle were both directors of the home. Since they opened their doors in 1970, a lot of ideas have been bounced around, and they aren’t afraid to try new things.

Kenneth and his team will do whatever it takes to help people at their time of need. And while they sometimes have to tell people “no,” they do everything they can to accommodate the needs of the families they serve. They never try to push anyone to do anything or pressure anyone to buy something.

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Bright Funeral Home and how they work to make the world a better place.

“Do it because you love helping people; don’t do it for monetary gain… It’s a day-by-day thing. …Care about the people you’re serving… Do it for the right reason.”


Congratulations to the team at Bright Funeral Home for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Kenneth, for taking the time to speak with us!
