Phillip & Wiley was my first experience with a mortuary and I cannot speak highly enough of their compassion and professionalism. Communication was frequent and they remained freely accessible, regardless of the time. All of my questions and concerns were addressed without any kind of pushback or dismissal. I don't believe there's a single word to represent the perfect blend of respectfulness and candor present at Phillip & Wiley; but these amazing individuals helped my family with an interment in the rain. I do believe that I have been quite spoiled by their standard level of service and I am grateful that they were part of my funeral experience.

Phillip and Wiley surpassed any expectation I could have imagined. This was one of the most unfortunate and heartbreaking events of my life and while chaotic and emotionally draining; they were compassionate and patient. Phillip and Wiley are flexible and all of their work is pristine; produced with the highest quality. This was a somber experience for me, but with the assistance of Phillip and Wiley they helped to make it comfortable and beautiful and they put my mind and heart at ease. Thank you so much!

On behalf of the family of John A Del Vecchio, we would like to say Thank you to Phillip and Wiley Mortuary for being so kind and very compassionate to our needs. We are from South Jersey and my father lived in Gainesville Florida.

My Dad is finally home and we are so very thankful for the easy transition. For the excellent service and such comfort to us, we are so lucky to have had Phillip and Wiley during our time of need. Many thanks again to Bernard and Jane for your kindness. Forever great full, Mrs. Donna Schepacarter 🙏🙏🙂

I would like to thank Phillip & Wiley Mortuary, Inc so much for everything you did. My husband passed away on June 18, 2020 in Lithonia, GA. My mother recommended Phillip and Wiley to provide service for my husband. I contacted them the same day he died and I spoke with Mr. Bernard. He was awesome! He informed me that I had nothing to worry about and believe me I didn't. My husband was brought back to Jacksonville, FL from Lithonia, GA that same day. The personal service was so much more than I ever expected. I was very pleased with the funeral service. I would not hesitate to recommend your service to anyone.

My family and I can not thank the staff enough for their professionalism during this hard time. From 1st contact they provided service beyond expectation. We were in awe at the office visit. We had to coordinate an out of state burial and Bernard, got on the phone immediately and reached out to a Funeral home in the state we were going to. He coordinated that entire exchange! Jane was a pleasure to work with and offered her help in every area. Ron greeted us at the viewing and offered support while the family viewed our love one. Amanda offered comforting conversation during our viewing and was a great support during the funeral.
My aunt was groomed so well. The amazing job performed by PW Mortuary was beyond our wildest dreams. She looked AMAZING!
Even at the burial site, hours away from Gainesville, they provided the most awesome service, EVERYONE on staff is GREAT, PATIENT AND KIND. PW Mortuary is above standard in this industry. The Frasier family is very grateful! Many Thanks!!!

We would like to extend a debt of gratitude to the entire Phillip & Wiley Mortuary staff for the exceptional service they provided to our family after the passing of our beloved grandmother. We were utterly impressed with how they walked us through the funeral arrangement process with great detail and patience. Thank you Mr. Phillip for making the process a lot less stressful with daily communication and updates regarding important details. Thank you Mr. Wiley for taking the time to accompany us to find an ENTIRE ensemble for our grandmother. She looked flawless! It gave our family an immense sense of closure to see her beautiful, with a smile, and at peace. Special thanks to Jane for her promptness. Jane you were AWESOME! We were a handful at times undoubtedly, but the Phillip & Wiley staff handled each situation with extreme professionalism and for that, we are forever grateful. During the time of a love one's demise, Phillip & Wiley Mortuary will provide Service Beyond Expectations Guaranteed!

"Service beyond expectation," is a very apt description of PhillipWiley. I live in Rockford, IL and recently attended the funeral of my sister, Lula Mae Melton. Bernard Phillip is very compassionate, ahead of the "game" of mortuary science, as well as his skillset being second to none, I wanted to thank him personally for his professionalism, compassion, and for being who he is. It is never easy (as he said) losing a loved one, but seeing them at their best does remove some of the angst, if not the hurt. Mr. Phillip outshines every mortician I have met, and I have met many. I wish we had you here in the Midwest Mr. Phillip. God's blessings and favor to you as you continue to help families in their time of grief. It is very apparent that your skillset in mortuary science is top-notch. Thank you seems so little, but we all indeed thank you!

I really don't know where to begin as I tell everyone of the exceptional service that my family and I, received from Phillip and Wiley Mortuary Inc. The passing of my mother was one of the hardest things for my family to deal with. Phillip and Wiley, handled my mother with grace, and treated her as if it was their own mother, from the day we called to have her picked up. If there was a check list of things to go by, as it relates to the service they provided my family, literally every box and some would be checked! They far exceeded every expectation I had. They were there to answer our questions or to make revisions at the drop of the dime, day or night. The White/ Williams family, is eternally grateful to Phillip and Wiley Mortuary, their impeccable service and dedication to serve others in their time of need, speaks volumes about this funeral home. Choose Phillip and Wiley Mortuary for all your burial needs and I can guarantee, that they will far exceed any expectation you have or had.

We cannot begin to express or sincerest gratitude for the phenomenal job that you bestowed on our family. Many thanks for treating mom and our family at our lowest and greatest time of need. Mom said for the first time she was at lost for words due to the passing of our beloved Craig. That is truly momentous because normally mom spearheads everything. Phillip & Wiley Mortuary, Inc. took the driving seat and orchestrated the entire service with such grace and dignity. My mom was able to sit back and grieve properly. From the numerous conversations, the many special requests and the heartfelt way that you all treated my brother in his final transition. Words cannot ever repay for the exceptional job that you undertook. My brother was a man that prided himself in his appearance. You exceeded all our expectations and much more. My brother would have been proud of how well he was take care of during his final rest. That radiant smile on his face expressed that he entered his final flight in peace and happiness! Job well done.

The beginning of Sept. 2019, I called Phillip and Wiley to pick up my Godson and handle the services. I never expected anything in return - this is what they do. Well, I received a thank you and sympathy card the following week. I said to my husband, "that was nice". Well today is our Godson's birthday... upon checking my mailbox, I pull out a card that recognizes our baby's birthday and acknowledges that his birthday is special. This REALLY is "Service Beyond Expectation"! Thanks Phillip and Wiley Mortuary! We couldn't do it without you!

I worked with Bernard and Jane at Phillips & Wiley throughout the whole mortuary planning process. They made a confusing and sad time in my life so much easier. They provided thoughtful attention to detail and personalized care for my specific needs. All my follow up questions and requests were immediately addressed by Bernard and Jane. The wood urn with the guitar is perfect and beautiful. Again, thank you for your help and persistence in fulfilling my families needs. Your work for me and my husband Will has been so kind, patient, caring, understanding . . I could go on and on. Please accept my deepest gratitude for a job well done. Peace, Chris Swanson

I made a mess of things, and Philip & Wiley Mortuary came right in and took the weight off my shoulders! Once my daddy was in the care of Philip &Wiley's I called or texted every day! His passing was unexpected and I acted as if he was in the hospital.. I asked how he was doing , was he ok? And each time they ensured me that he was well taken care of.. I even called to ask what size shoe he wore, and of course they took the time to find out! My family was unable to make it Phillip & Wiley Mortuary, Mr. Phillip was able to use Digital viewing for our first family viewing! I wasn't as ready as my other family members but, He gave me the time I needed to process the situation. We have not made it to the service part yet, but I know that this staff will help us celebrate My Daddy well... I will gladly say that this is the best Mortuary in FLORIDA!!! There are something's you can't ever repay a person for....These are called BLESSINGS 🙌🏿
Thank you Marcus Andre' Allen, Bernard Phillip & Wiley Mortuary!!!

The family of Jamie Baxter would like to extend a heartfelt appreciation to Bernard and the Phillip and Wiley staff. This was a very difficult time for us seeing as though my brothers passing was sudden,Bernard was there with us the entire time no matter what time I called or texted him he responded. The incredible job they did with my brother all the way to making sure our clothing selection was on point and adding his own spin to it blew us away .The service was just as we wanted .I would definitely recommend them .

They were always available, answered all of my questions, handled the family drama with grace and gave us a beautiful visitation and graveside service. Thank you for everything.

My sister passed away suddenly in early October. She did not have insurance . We called around attempting to plan a funeral and quickly found out we were looking at around $10,000 easily, for a simple funeral. We happened upon Phillip and Wiley Mortuary of Melrose and were instantly relieved! They are very, very reasonably priced. They were extremely professional and went way above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of every step of the way! Including this morning when they contacted me to let me know my sister’s headstone was in, which I had totally forgotten to even inquire about! I highly recommend them to everyone! Please consider these guys should you unfortunately find yourself in need of services.
