There is nothig wrong with either of the funeral homes in Manchester, Romingers is Family owned and operated and has stood the test of time. I'm a big fan of family owned and operated businesses.

There is something wrong with Brittons. . .the staff is extremely cold hearted to the families when they go in to make arrangements. I mean its a difficult time for the families a little compassion would be nice. All they are concerned with is getting the money then rushing you through the casket room etc. The last time I was there it was getting close to closing time and they were merely trying to hurry and make you leave. I know my parents will never be at that Funeral home.

At least Brittons want ask you for all the money before the let you make arrangements. I have always found them to be kind, courteous and nice to my family.

Are you suggesting that Rominger's does request the money before you make arrangements? I've never heard of them doing that, I've always heard of it being the other way around. If you don't have insurance or money, Britton's will always ask you for money up front.

Sounds to me like you all are just DYING to get a new funeral home. And you are going to DIE if we don't get one. Then what, your dead.

I agree with you. I know that Brittons does not let you pay in payments, the only way they wait for payment is if you have insurance and they have to file it for you. I know Romingers is much more cooperative with payment than Brittons. Also seems to me like Romingers are more comforting to the families while making arrangements, Paula is a stand up lady. She is the type of person you need to deal with when having to go make funeral arrangements. Its not at all an easy thing to do, so sympathy is needed!!

I am sorry but you are very wrong about Brittons ...I made payments on my mom and dads funeral and they where very good to me ...it took me almost two years to pay for daddys and then right when I got it payed my mom died and they let me pay payments on her's to ...and nither of my parents had any kind of insurance ..so you really dont know what your talking about here ...

Do you really believe the local economy can sustain 3 funeral homes?

I don't see how 3 funeral homes can survive. I heard Rominger's do not own the hearse. I believe they rent them for funerals.

I believe Britton's will let you wash & wax the hearse to make up for some installments. Also, they let my wife do some cleaning. I know they will work with you. They are really good people.

Rominger's own stock in a hearse company. They call when they have a funeral & drivers bring the cars over for them. They exchange cars for new one's every few years. There are alot of funeral homes that own stock in the company. House Rawlings in London, one in Somerset, Danville, Jackson County, Corbin, and other areas in Southern/Eastern/Central Kentucky. There are about 20 funeral homes involved.

How do I know you may ask? I inquired about starting one with hearses & limos in this area a few years back.

Just a bit of FYI.

I have just had to deal with Brittons in the last few days. My whole family was treated with the utmost care and respect.Jim Trosper is the kindest man i know. BUT i have to say that Romingers is just as good and as kind. I wouldnt mind dealing with either one of them .As a matter of fact i have. Both are top notch businesses.Dont know why we would need anotherfuneral home in Clay Co.
