Comments From Those We Have Served

Diane was great at helping us through this difficult time. She wasn't pushy and very patient while we made some difficult decisions. She followed through with everything we asked for and never once acted like we were bothering her when we would call or email her. She was always available and quick to accommodate our wishes or requests. Losing my daughter is the hardest thing I've ever dealt with so I appreciate her helping me through this.

Anna R.

Losing a lifelong friend is a trauma that does not have a preparation plan! Bucktrout was very helpful in easing the transition for me. Lindsey, especially, was comforting and patient in all aspects of this uncomfortable experience. In truth I cannot say that I completed my business in a happy state, I did finish with a feeling of content and satisfaction! Many thanks to your establishment.

What a blessing to have Bucktrout of Williamsburg there at our time of great sadness. Recently lost my Momma and 5 short weeks later, my Daddy. Such a peace to have this family care for our beloved family members. Both Memorial services and small receptions held at this beautiful facility. We were taken great care of by Lindsay and a compassionate group of dedicated people. Even support doggie Benjamin comforted family and friends.
I cannot recommend Bucktrout highly enough for its blend of expertise and professionalism tempered with a profound sense of caring. I am most grateful to all

Losing my mother has been the most difficult thing I’ve ever faced, but thanks to Lindsay at Bucktrout, planning her funeral and taking care of all that comes with the passing of a loved one was made much easier. Lindsay was reachable whenever I needed something and her responses were prompt, accurate, and heartfelt. I know my mom was honored by Bucktrout and would recommend them to anyone in need.

Derrick R.

All of the Bucktrout of Williamsburg family are warm and caring, helping to navigate through a very difficult time of loss. Professional and compassionate resonate. Lindsay Lamb assisted my family after the loss of my Dad. She handled everything for us and my Dad's Celebration of Life with Military Honors and bagpipes was so special and exactly what he wanted. We were blessed by and grateful for Bucktrout.

Sarah H.

Lindsay Lamb took care of my family in this sad time. She was welcoming, attentive, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Bucktrout of Williamsburg and more so the help of Lindsey. I'm so thankful for them!

Jess K.

I recently helped my friend plan a service for her husband. From the moment we walked through the door until the very end, Bucktrout was amazing. We worked mainly with Diane but never hesitated to allow Lindsay or Trevor assist us (if Diane wasn’t available). Top notch staff! Planning a funeral is hard but the staff at bucktrout made it extremely easy.

Lindy G.

We were incredibly blessed by the love and compassion shown by the family at Bucktrout and they enabled a beautiful service in honor and celebration of my Dad's life! Thanks to Miranda, Diane, Trevor, Sylvia, and the entire staff for making us feel at home and helping us to send Dad home in such a beautiful way. May God bless you all!

We have used Bucktrout in the past and had a favorable relationship. When they were called for my daughter I knew once again we had make the right choice. From the moment the attendants came to my home to pick up my daughter they showed much care compassion and respect for us. Diane was a pleasure to work with and Benjamin is the added touch that everyone needs.

Virginia P.

I don't imagine when one walks into a mortuary/funeral home that it's even' in the back of your mind that 'luck' will find you there. But that is exactly what happened at Bucktrout of Williamsburg Virginia. We (my son and I) had found ourselves living in another city, not our own, but quite alone after the too-recent death of my husband and my son's dad.

Luck walked in with a terrific elegance and yet there was something so kind in his face that it reached his eyes, and all of a sudden we felt safe. Not from scams or poor quality service (the place is clean, lovely -- nay, beautiful -- but it was still a mortuary.) No the 'safety' came with the luck.

'Luck' was our particular Mortuary Director, Trevor Hutson. Whether we (my son and I) looked like we were still terribly sad (we were) and broken (on the verge) there was something in Trevor Hutson that said, no worries. Just no worries.

And there were none. As soon as he spoke, with a solemnity that was edged with sweetness, we sensed we were in the right place. It only got
better. I can only guess that most people can take an hour to get a sentence out because all one's thinking has become skewered, and questions that were so necessary to be asked, were no where to be found.

Trevor picked up on this immediately: he was obviously no stranger to broken hearts and unclear thoughts trying to be said in an understandable way. He never lost eye contact. He never looked away. He was the luck we needed so badly: with the death of a sweet, kind and terribly helpful man, the fates delivered a sweet, kind and unbelievably helpful man. He was able to answer anything we were sputtering to say.

I would be foolish to think that Bucktrout didn't have others like
Trevor. I would be foolish to believe that a place so clean and beautiful
didn't have the reputation of 'being the ONLY place in Williamsburg Virginia to utilize when death comes to one's house' -- Bucktrout would be
the place I would want even if I lived in France! I mean this: it was a full-service heart-mender. And for my son and I personally, most of that was
due to Trevor himself. He made every long minute of the process of saying goodbye lighter than we thought possible, and yet more dignified
than any experience i've had before. I didn't feel like a stranger in a strange and new place: i felt like I was in an extension of a family, my
family. I don't think it possible for me to recommend it more highly. And
perhaps luck will be with you as well, and Trevor Hutson will be the man
to see your situation through from beginning to -- well -- the end.

Bucktrout Funeral Home provided excellent customer service during our difficult time when our mother passed away last August 29, 2021. We are so grateful of Sydney's Southard services. She explained everything to us clearly and very patient with us as well. On behalf of my siblings we HIGHLY RECOMMEND BUCKTROUT FOR YOUR FUNERAL NEEDS.

Howard P.

The moment I set down with Joey Moritz to take care of my parents final wishes, I was a bundle of nerves. I get that just walking into a Funeral Home.
He was able to help me through the process with ease to what our needs were. My father just passed with COVID and I as well had COVID. Sydney has helped me through all of this electronically as I am in quarantine and no one to assist me with this. Their compassion and sincere caring of supporting and guiding me through such a difficult time was over the top. God Bless you for your kindness and caring for my family.

Kacie C.

We choose Bucktrout for my brother... Even from the first meeting with Dianne, they are nothing but kind and there for you through this.. Angela even made my 6yr old feel comfortable there and played with him, just like how his uncle did with very involved imagination. Trevor an intern actually ended up speaking during my brother's service as the other guy had a horrible accident. Trevor did amazing, and the emotion Trevor spoke with touched our hearts because he paid attention to every story we told about John and I'm so glad he did, it touched my family's hearts.

We are so happy that we had chose Bucktrout of Williamsburg. We found them by looking at their 5 star reviews, and after our experience with them, we understand why they have this level of customer service. They took a very difficult time for us, and made it as easy as possible, working day and night for us to minimize the stress of decisions on our family. Krissy, and all of the staff made our experience as easy as possible and I would highly recommend them for anyone that may need these services in the future.

Daniel R.

Sydney and the staff at Bucktrout were extraordinarily helpful when my mother passed away recently. Both my parents had pre-planned arrangements and I am thankful they chose Bucktrout.
Taking care of the final details was a smooth, uncomplicated experience thanks to Sydney. Also, her coordination with Williamsburg Memorial Park made our communications a seamless process. She answered my many questions and when asked, offered the name of an excellent bagpiper who added remarkable solace to this memorable experience.
I want to thank Sydney and staff for helping turn a difficult time into a more soothing, peaceful experience than I could have ever imagined.
My husband and I have pre-planned arrangements through Bucktrout and I know we are in the best of care with these professionals.

Vetval H.

A caring group at a most horrible time is about as good as it gets. Ms. Sydney Southard was especially attentive throughout the entire ordeal. From initial calls and arrangements, to advice and educated counsel, every detail down to her presence at the burial service of my brother. Enough space to let us grieve, but ever present if we were in need of anything. Bucktrout is a fine organization, I would recommend them most highly.

We used Bucktrout of Williamsburg both when my father and when my mother passed away. Both times, the staff were caring and organized and helped make a difficult time a little less difficult. They provided resources, explained options, respected our wishes, and showed compassion throughout. I highly recommend them.

sarah l.

My father passed recently and Sydney and the staff and owner of Bucktrout we’re with us from the very moment he passed. Sydney took over and walked me through every step of the way taking over most of the details so we didn’t have to grieve and plan at the same time. She was compassionate, comforting, kind and went above and beyond to make sure the memorial service and reception were exactly what our family envisioned. It was the perfect send off for my father. Even after all the details are done, and things have settled, they are still wanting to make sure our family is doing well. I would wholeheartedly recommend you reach out to Bucktrout in your time of need. You WILL be taken care of and comforted during a very difficult time.

Landess W.

When my wife's mom passed away, she was without any family around. The team at Bucktrout took her hand and guided her through the steps to allow her mom to proceed down the path of souls. I have nothing but love and admiration for a group that cares so much. Thank you, Lindsay Lamb and your colleagues at Bucktrout Funeral Home, Williamsburg.

Scott J.

I have to say and I hope you understand, how important it is to plan for a time we would rather not think about. I found myself in that position today and the care I received when I went to Bucktrout was priceless. I left.there with peace of mind concerning my husbands final wishes and plan to go back soon to put mine in place. The options are actually wonderful, and there are plenty. I was treated like part of the family while I was there and couldn't be more pleased with the finale outcome. Peace of mind and peace in my heart. Thank you.

Cindi B.

I have worked with the staff at Bucktrout on numerous occasions and have found everyone extremely knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate. Altmeyer's commitment to giving back to the community is also very commendable. The location is beautiful, clean and professional, and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone.

Catherine S.

I have attended several funerals at Bucktrout, and they were so well done.
I was told by the family members who made the arrangements that the staff were amazing to deal with and that the prices were very fair, and much better than other places they had checked with.

chris b.

What can I say about the staff at Bucktrout Williamsburg? Hands down top notch service and care. I have used them for several friends and family arrangements. They have not only been there for us during the planning but continue to have a relationship with us now. When I call them they are there. When I need a friend they are there. I love that they remember who I am even when we see each other at other events or in town.
They are my forever family and I highly recommend their services!

Julie T.

Lindsay at the Buck Trout Funeral home was excellent. In a time of need she was wonderful in explaining everything and making us feel very comfortable. We highly recommend her great service and the Buck Trout Funeral home.

Robert B.

Our experience at Bucktrout was absolutely outstanding. We cannot say enough good things about this place. We worked with Lindsay, who was a pro, and was amazing to work with during such a difficult time, and their prices were very competitive (and I believe a little lower than others we looked at).
We looked at all of the funeral homes in Williamsburg and went here on our last stop and we are so happy that we did. It was the staff's understanding and the cozy feeling of the funeral home itself that put Bucktrout above the rest. They are accommodating, friendly, reliable, and efficient. My mothers funeral was exactly what she would have wanted if she could have planned it herself. Lindsay took care of everything for us, even making a playlist to be played during the viewing instead of sad funeral music. (Also a shoutout to our Celebrant Keith, who created an outstanding service with more smiles than tears, which is exactly what we wanted). They handle everything the day of as well, picking up flowers, party platters from Fresh Market (!!) AND all of the cleanup afterwards. Also, they offer to deliver anything you wanted to keep (flowers, cards, food, etc.) to your home the day after, or you can pick it up when you can.
After the funeral, Lindsay even let me back into the Chapel where the casket was to spend a little time alone there while it was closed off to the rest of the guests- which meant the world to me.
Again, I cannot say enough good things about this place and the staff behind the scenes that made an unimaginably terrible day just a little brighter. If I ever have to plan another funeral, I will go with Bucktrout 100% of the time.

Unfortunately I've had to use the services of Bucktrout three times in eight months with two times being in about a two-week period. The staff has been nothing short of amazing especially Diane Compagnone. She walked us through everything each time recognizing that while we'd been through the process before things can become a blur when in mourning.

Diane was wonderful - very professional and caring. I didn't know what to expect - I had read that when a funeral home shows up to gather the body that it would be very clinical (they'd be in full protective hazmat gear).
