We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
Ventnor and Leslie Wright and their staff showed great professionalism during a very difficult time for us. They made themselves available at all times during the process for any questions or requests we had. This relieved much of the anxiety knowing that things were being taken care of in a proper and professional manner.
Wright Funeral and Cremation Services made this experience effortless. From the initial contact to my mother's homegoing church service, they were cognizant of our family, our feelings, and were consistently compassionate. Outstanding Service...thank you
Words can’t express the gratitude that I have for the services my family and I received from start to finish. Professionalism mannerism, dedication and punctuality were all present during our time of need, five out of five stars
I wish I could find the perfect way to thank you both for being so kind and thoughtful. Caring is such a part of who you two are. My husband would have been so very pleased with your wonderful blessing.
Thank you, Kim Caleb
Many Thanks to the Wrights; a mighty duo in this city of Coatesville, PA. They are truly anointed & appointed to bless God's children during the hardest times one can endure. The lost of a loved one is traumatic to say the least, let alone thinking about how to lay them to rest in a loving & respectful way. This lovely and mindful couple, with open arms shown so much compassion straight from the door. They are God sent, so entrusting them with your loved one's final process is the right thing to do. Unspeakable peace has filled my soul and I'm grateful to declare; All is well with my soul, because of God and all His purposed saints who surrounded me with Agape' Love from the eternal place. Thank you very much to Wright Funeral & Cremation Service, Inc. Love, Peace, Hope, Faith and Joy!

And genuine concern and care for my family, my 93 year old mother as well extraordinary. Thank you. You left no question unanswered, every small detailed we noticed. God bless. I pray that God continues to bless you and your staff.

On behalf of my father, Walter P. Johnson and my sister, Patricia High, I want to take a moment to share this expression of gratitude to Wright Funeral and Cremation Services. The burden of preparing for the Homegoing of our mother, Priscilla M. Johnson was made easier to bear due to the genuine care and concern of Mr. and Mrs. Wright. They assisted us with every detail and understood the need for us to properly think through the process. I sincerely pray that God will continue to use them in such a special way as they continue to minister to families during their most difficult time.
I can't say enough about the impeccable service and professionalism I received from Wright Funeral & Cremation Services. They made a trying and extremely hard situation possible when I was at my lowest. Mr. Wright and his wife were awesome and made this over whelming experience easy for me and my family.

And for that we are very Thankful. My mother was very happy to see the markers. You did such a wonderful job on all 4 of them. May God continue to Bless and Keep you and your families.
I cannot say enough about the Wrights. They provided homegoing services for my mother in 2017 and just recently for my father. They are professional and provide a level of love and care that is greatly needed at the time. Every detail was taken care of which gave my family great comfort. Thank you for your services!!
Was very easy to work with. They understood all our needs and went out of their way to assist us.
First-rate service with a critical eye to achieve customer satisfaction. The Wright's were very professional and courteous and took care of our family during the passing of our beloved mother. Most importantly, my mom's service was done right and I know she would have been pleased. Thank you very much!
Thank you for the way you took care of my family during our time of need. You made this unpleasant experience easier to handle. Thank you very much
Wright’s provided over the top service all the way around
Mr. Wright was so compassionate with everything. He's a great guy.
My husband's wishes were to be cremated. When he passed away I did not want to come out of my home during the coronavirus pandemic because I am at a high-risk age. I was able to fill out all the forms online. I was very pleased with their caring and professional service.
First class from beginning to end.
Death is always un-welcomed and unexpected. My wife Lois A. Carr (Salimah) contracted the COVID 19 virus during her stay in a nursing home, she was transferred to Brandywine Hospital on 6/04/2020 where she continued to decline and expired on 6/08/2020 from COVID 19 complications. As per Islamic protocol, procedures were put in place to help make her transition to her final resting place within the shortest amount of time, because that is the Islamic practice and there is no embalming permitted in the Muslim burial. I was able to work with the Coatesville, Pa Masjid Imam Jamal (minister) and Mr. Wright, at Wright Funeral Services, Coatesville, Pa to have the necessary PPE equipment and barriers necessary to properly shroud her body. Once this was done, the Janazah (funeral) prayer was completed. After the prayer, family and friends followed the hearse to Fairview cemetery where she was properly buried. Because of the ease and professional proficiency provided by Mr. Wright and his wife the necessary arrangements including the burial were done in a day! This happened because Mr. Wright developed a relationship thru the years with the local Masjid and it's community. So much so, my wife’s last wishes were all granted, she was burial by the community she loved, the supportive funeral establishment which buried her friends, and her final resting place with others she worshipped with throughout the years. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Wright, for helping me, and this community throughout the years.
Respectfully submitted, and with much gratitude Yusuf S. Saleem
Thank you so much for your wonderful services. We cannot thank you enough for taking good care of Dad & Mom, and the family. God bless, Judy, Steve, Holly & Matthew
Mr. Wright's services were completed with great professionalism and in a timely fashion.

I can't say enough about the Wright's. Very professional, understanding and kind. Their work is superior.
A sincere thank you to you, your wife and your staff for a great home going service for my brother Terry. We could not have done it without you. You will always have the highest recommendation from myself and my family.

On behalf of our entire family, it is our honor and privilege to express our sincerest gratitude to Wright Funeral & Cremation Services, Inc., for the extraordinary level of service, compassion and commitment to excellence recently demonstrated to the Kellum family.
Ventnor, Leslie and the entire staff gave of themselves unselfishly to help ensure every necessity was met or exceeded in order to guarantee a great celebration service for our loved one.
Their patience, responsiveness and boundless empathy, coupled with a willingness to be of service to the family in such an easygoing and relaxed way was quite heartening. The greatest compliment we can share is Wright Funeral Services did things the “Wright” way, with the “Wright” amount of professionalism, empathy and compassion.

Ventnor and Leslie and their staff provided exceptional service. I have worked with several funeral directors in the area and they stand out above them all.
When I came here, I was greeted and serviced by Mrs. Leslie Wright. She was very welcoming and had a very calming and warm morale about her which made me very comfortable in opening up as to my reasons for being there. She was understanding and empathetic. She genuinely made me feel that what was important to me was in fact important to her as well. I left here with more than what I came for. I appreciate you and what you did for me. I thank you graciously. May God Bless you and the service you bring to others. THANK YOU!

You guys stood by my side every step of the way. There isn't words that can explain my love or gratitude. Again, thank you! You are appreciated ❤️
It has been a pleasure dealing with Wright Funeral Home during the most difficult time of my life. The loss of my beloved mother was traumatic but the professionalism and compassion shown to my family was above expectations. Their availability and accessibility was superior. The genuine care and respect they provided to our family and our beloved mother was beyond reproach. I cannot begin to thank them for the lovely tribute we were able to extend to our deceased mother. I would not have been able to say goodbye in a better way than with the assistance of Wright Funeral Home.
My son's demise was unexpected and the most painful event our family had to experience. Wright Funeral & Cremation Services did an outstanding job for our family at our time of loss and grief. They were thorough, professional, and very patient with us. They helped us with each step along the way. They offered suggestions and guided us when we were not sure of what to do or how to proceed. We are grateful, extremely thankful, for their friendly, yet professional services.
I only wish there were words to adequately express our gratitude for your very valuable knowledge and assistance.
The Wright's are beautiful, caring people. They did an exemplary job when they handled the service for my daughter, Jamica Woods. They are kind, they don't push or rush you. They let you know all your options and let you decide what you need and if you ask them for advice, they are more than capable of giving it to you. Today, they sat with me and helped me pre-plan my funeral, not the most pleasant thing to do, but they made it quite bearable. I would definitely recommend Wright Funeral & Cremation Services to anyone that loses a loved one. Thank you Mr.and Mrs. Wright, God bless you!
Wright Funeral Services exceeded my expectations. I was pleased with the quality of the services, website notice, organization and planning of our mother’s home going, memorial details including the program design, urn selection, flowers and down to the detail video montage with musical accompaniment. After the memorial service, Wright Funeral Service reached out to let us know that they would be there for us should we need them.
I unequivocally want to recognize Wright Funeral Services. Service, Godly compassion and professionalism is paramount to the way the Wrights conduct business. I want the world to know much I appreciate the Wrights for helping me and my family through the most difficult time of our lives.
We cannot express enough gratitude as you made the process manageable when we faced our darkest time. Mr. and Mrs. Wright you both were very loving, professional, thorough and simply wonderful. Our mother looked absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for all you did for the Robinson family.
You all helped make our difficult time of mourning not so stressful.
You are beautiful people. I can't thank you enough for helping us lay my Daddy to rest so beautifully. You were very kind, caring and professional.
Over the past few weeks, I had the opportunity to reflect on James' Celebration of Life Service. All I can say, what an amazing celebration. The service was a true reflection of James' life.
Thank you for capturing my vision perfectly. Thank you for exceeding my expectations. Thank for executing every detail with such elegance and class. Thank you for going out of your way to make sure the smallest detail was taken care of.
I loved every touch…. the engraved casket, the custom made register book, the banner, the obituary, the bookmarks, the thank you cards, the beautiful blanket, the video, and the beautiful crystal keepsakes.
Your professionalism and care for people is to be commended.
I am forever grateful.
Dear Mr. & Mrs. Wright, On behalf of my entire family, we would like to extend our thanks and gratitude for arranging our brother's final journey home. We were extremely happy with his appearance, he looked so much like his natural self. You were all so very helpful and this made our loss less stressful. I would gladly recommend your services to others in need. Everything you provided was greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Loretta Canada and the Marrow Family
Dear Mr. & Mrs. Wright. I wanted to thank you for you being there to help me through one of the most difficult times in my life. From the first time you came to my home, the night my husband died, you were caring, kind, understanding, professional and you just took so much of the responsibilities off my shoulders. Your suggestions were all so appreciated, especially the military part of the service. Can not tell you how much my family was impressed with your personal touch. God Bless You Both. Carol Reddington
Thank you is not enough to say to Mr. Wright. He and his family will always be in my prayers.
Mr. & Mrs. Wright were very friendly and attentive to the family. Anytime I had a question or didn't understand some of the paperwork I had, he always made sure everything was clear. They even checked on us after everything was over. I would recommend them to others. I will always remember the time he took to focus on all of my needs and concerns.
My deepest, sincere thanks and appreciation to Wright Funeral and Cremation Services. Thank you for taking such good care of Calvin. It helped my heart-break and sorrow to entrust Calvin in your care. Your standards are high and you pay attention to every small detail. The love of God shines through both Ventnor and Leslie. The result is professional, kind and compassionate service. Thank you again and God bless both of you! - Donna Rowland

The memory book was excellent. Love the DVD of my loved one. The blanket was excellent. Love the idea. Programs done very well. I was well pleased
As we were leaving the cemetery on Saturday, my wife and I were discussing what a beautiful tribute had been paid to a wonderful and most deserving gentleman. Our discussion also centered around the outstanding and professional job you and your staff had done. You did an outstanding job directing so many people. Your artistic touch of building the cross on the casket at the cemetery was very touching and added even more to an already beautiful tribute.
Words can not express the way I feel about your kindness and care for the homegiong of my dad. I have never been to a viewing or a funeral and felt so much comfort. My daddy looked so great and it just felt right. I just wanted to send a personal thank you. I have ever known. Your attention and care and quality of work was just wonderful and impressive. Thank you for a service well done.
I’d like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to you and your staff for a wonderful homegoing service for my mother. She would have been very pleased with all that took place before, during and afterwards. You run a very warm and professional service. Pease & Blessings
