The Starling Funeral Home difference

“Polly and Starling in Harlem has helped me with both my parents services. Each time Polly saved me. She knew exactly what I needed and didn't need. She handled everything for me. Neither of my parents had insurance. Polly did everything she could to make sure the service was something I could afford to pay for. I am forever grateful for her and Spencer.”

“The kindness and compassion my family received after the death of my Mother was outstanding. I was impressed by the attention to detail of the staff. They made a difficult time a little less painful.”

“I don’t even know where to begin. My husband and I lost our baby boy August 16th and when calling funeral homes we were in shock and felt sick worried we wouldn’t be able to give our baby this one thing, a funeral, an opportunity for our other children and our family and friends to say goodbye. Spencer and Mrs Polly are beautiful people, heaven sent. I felt their love and sorrow every second I was with them. They were so patient with us and gave our son a beautiful service. They did not nickel and dime us like other places were doing. They worked so hard to help us. I could go on and on with every detail but just know these people will always be near and dear to my heart. If you are looking for a place that truly means they are so sorry for your loss and want you to make your final moments with your loved one so special then please choose Starling Evans. They truly are there to help you and not to sell you things. Spencer and Mrs Polly- if you ever read this, please know we are forever grateful for your kindness and heart. Thank you spencer for helping my daughter have the one chance to hold her brother, even if it meant holding his casket. Thank you for putting the little gifts for him in with him. It is such a comfort. Thank you for making one of the worst days of our lives go as smooth as possible and be beautiful. Thank you.”
