The loss of a loved one is heartbreaking, chaotic and emotionally draining and never easy. I expected to be treated as a transaction and taken advantage of during our time of grief. I was reluctant to utilize a different funeral home, especially a newer funeral home. I'm glad we did! Making the arrangements for our father was one of the hardest things I've had to do and there were some "bumps" along the way. Phillip & Wiley Mortuary was there every step. Our new normal presented several challenges regarding a service for my father. Mr. Phillip was very patient and understanding, he answered all of our questions, addressed our concerns, made revisions at the drop of the dime, day or night. His level of respect and candor helped us plan our father’s Celebration of Life as stress-free as humanly possible. I must say I was very impressed with their level of impeccable service, professionalism, and dedication to serving others in their time of bereavement. Your exceptional service speaks volumes. The numerous conversations, the special requests, and the heartfelt way that you took care of our dad as we said farewell to a gentleman will never be forgotten. Our father was a man that prided himself in his appearance and you upheld that standard. You exceeded all our expectations and much more. You even made a special tribute blanket with my father’s picture as a surprise personal gift! My father's arrangements were delivered with dignity, compassion, and class! Phillip & Wiley Mortuary lived up to their motto of "Service Beyond Expectations" On behalf of the Johnson Family, we thank you!
On behalf of my entire family, we would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to the entire staff of Philip and Wiley Mortuary. They showed our family compassion and care while arranging our Grandfathers burial. There service was very professional and everything was kept within our wishes. I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with everything from beginning to end.
I would love to thank Phillip and Wiley Funeral home, for showing up and showing out. Death is never a easy experience to deal with especially when it involves your child. Mr Phillip was very cordial and concerned as he helped our family prepare for my son’s final journey. In times as tumultuous as death we need less stress and more guidance as we are preparing for services. Mr Phillip showed us empathy and understanding of this process. It was a journey with my son being in another state and I had to wait on his wife to recover from her injuries. Mr Phillip’s demeanor and his spirit was truly genuine and his concerns were real. I didn’t feel as if I was a customer I felt like we were family. Mr Wiley and staff my hat tips off to you all for excellent service and the most amazing the programs were above my expectations. I would refer and suggest that everyone give this establishment a try because during death you don’t need a business handling your love one you need a friend and I thank you all for being our friend.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4
LaBrittany was…A Wife, Mother, Daughter, Granddaughter, Sister, Niece, Cousin, and Friend
On Christmas night 2020 after the death of our daughter, I had the opportunity of speaking with Mr. Bernard Phillip about how to begin the heartbreaking funeral planning process. The compassion and thoroughness the staff at Phillip & Wiley Mortuary showed was EXCEPTIONAL. They were truly a blessing to me while making the arrangements. Our hearts are full of gratitude for the big and small details the staff provided. We cannot say THANK YOU enough for the beautiful service.
To the staff of Phillip & Wiley Mortuary: Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 God’s continued blessings.
It was a sad day when I loss my wife, but Phillips and Wiley mad it a wonderful experience for me and my family. They mad my wife as beautiful as she always been. The group as a whole were very professional, caring and made it a loving environment from start to finish.
We the family of the late Frances A. Rutledge will like to show our gratitude to Phillip and Wiley Mortuary. We thank you all so much for your outstanding services. We couldn't have made a better decision.
Phillip &Wiley made the arrangements for my mother and we couldn’t be more pleased! After losing her tragically and unexpectedly the last thing we wanted to think about was planning all of her services. They thought of everything and made the whole process as painless as possible! They even made a special tribute blanket with her picture as a surprise personal gift! The mortuary is beautiful and they made everyone feel comfortable. They definitely made us feel at ease and helped us get through the most difficult time in my family’s life!
Phillip and Wiley was extraordinary with their service. They were kind and caring and made this process stress free for my family. My grandmother was beautifully laid to rest; They paid attention to detail and was on point with everything that could have been thought of in this unfortunate event. I’m more than happy my family chose Phillip and Wiley and I would recommend them to anyone in their time of need.
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.
The Simmons family appreciates the wonderful experience we have enjoyed with the Phillip & Wiley Mortuary. There staff and Jonathan have exhibited professional services throughout the funeral. I GIVE THIS FUNERAL HOME A 5*****STAR.
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!
We the Atkins & Young-Holmes family and friends would like to thank Phillip and Wiley for the awesome service you provided for us in the burial of our beautiful and precious princess Kimora Lynum. We thank you again for everything have done for us.
From beginning to end the professionalism is unmatched. The care and display of concern made this home going celebration a mush easier one. It's never easy to say farewell but with your help it was done with Grace!! For that I say thank you for your time and service.

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. They took complete and excellent care of my Dad and I had peace knowing he was in good hands just from speaking to Bernard and Jane on the phone and texts many times. 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!
Words cannot explain how grateful me and my family is with Phillip & Wiley for a wonderful service they did with my Aunt Lula! Everything was perfect! PERFECT to where if there were a mistake fixing it wouldn’t have been any better! Meaning there wouldn’t have been nothing to fix! Thank you guys for everything and I hope God blesses your business from top to bottom and make every family’s happy the way you did for me and mine. God Bless you Denetria🙏
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.
Love the family of Craig Nobles

They went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. This was my first time losing a loved one close to me and they made this process worry free and stress free. Everything was smooth. They kept us within our desired budget without losing the quality that we desired. I will forever be a customer of P & W, from the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU‼️
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!!!
Longest week of my life but my family was taking care of by Angels
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 .
We the Family of Anthony “Tony” Mangol will forever be grateful to P&W for their impeccable professional care shown to us at this most difficult time. The personal attention to every detail was exceptional. Your kind and caring spirit made this journey a little easier.

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!
