Our Mother recently passed a short time ago. My brothers, myself, and other family members had gone to meet with Brian Burns at Burns Kish Funeral Home in Munster. Brian was very kind, compassionate, and understanding of what we were all going through during this deeply emotional time. He spoke with us for an extended length of time while explaining everything and giving us options when we were unsure of particulars. The Munster location is very beautiful and spacious. We were very happy that we were able to create a very special tribute for our Mother. We all miss her dearly. Thank you, Brian, for making this a very personal and memorable experience for our family.

Burns-Kish was extremely caring, kind, and dedicated to help us plan such a hard day for our family. The owner Brian allowed us to text him all the random changes and thoughts we had during this time and never complained once. He responded quickly and his staff was gracious and kind as well. Ruth walked me through pre-planning and even stayed late to meet me since I was coming from out of town. Emily was calming and helpful through everything as well and handled everything before we even thought of it. There’s plenty of space inside and outside with a patio and kids room. We set up a video tribute and had couches and a kitchenette area to be as comfortable as our large family needed. I would recommend this company to be at your side and we couldn’t thank them enough.

Burns Kish Funeral Home was in charge for both my Father's funeral and my sister's. They held my hand through the entire process, giving me advice and made a terrible experience tolerable. Their kindness will long be treasured.

Burns-Kish Funeral Home in Hammond Indiana was absolutely amazing. The staff was extremely friendly, attentive and they genuinely care about you. There always available to lend a helping hand and answer any questions I had.

Losing a parent, our Dad, is one of the most painful parts of life. Most thankful for Emily Hagen's thoughtfulness, caring, compassionate ways, making certain every detail was addressed which lightened our pain during this most difficult time. Staff was wonderful and professional as well.

Exceptionally compassionate, caring and professional service during such a difficult was so refreshing! Really listened to our wishes, listened to concerns and offered suggestions when appropriate. Allowed our family the relief of having a very respectful and appropriate time with our loved one, while honoring a beautiful life. All details were tended to in a timely manner, and still are as we walk through business matters. We as a family, could not have asked for anything more or better care/respect for us or our deceased loved one. Highly recommend their services in your time of need. Gave our family great peace.

Don't be fooled by grandiose funeral chapels surrounded by lots of asphalt that may currently be the most popular place to go but if you were wise, you'd drive right on by and head to Burns Kish Funeral Home, a long trusted, an established company that has a great reputation to back it. We had a funeral go through Burns Kish and we were most satisfied and pleased but like fools we didn't go to where we were treated honestly, professionally and respectively the next time a death occurs. Instead of staying with Burns Kish, we drove up the street where our family trust was violated, we were told lies, gouged in price and told we were the worst family ever. However, they couldn't answer me as to how they came to this awful conclusion. Funeral homes should never advocate for familial unity when their was none prior to the passing of the decedent. They shouldn't pass judgement or stick their nose where it doesn't belong, to put it mildly. Unfortunately, we weren't at Burns Kish. We learned a great lesson and will do my best to spread the news. Burns Kish is the best funeral home in Munster. You can trust them to meet your needs at a time of grief and loss. They will respect you. I've been there and I know! Trust is everything when it comes to funeral homes and Burns Kish is a company you can trust Highly Recommended!

The service, staff, and facilities at Burns Kish are beyond superb. This family-owned business had a personal touch and provided an additional level of comfort to the family and friends who attended the services of our loved one that way beyond what we could have asked. This facility cozy like.a lush home and has an elevator and many beautiful areas to sit and reflect. They gave us the white glove treatment from beginning to end. This facility also has an eating area that was fantastic to place food for attendees which were a huge plus. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I had my husbands funeral there in August. They were most helpful and caring with all my family and always there for any of our questions or needs. They did a wonderful job with everything and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a funeral home. Definitely a 5 star experience for me.

Staff was very courteous and nice. They helped put together a beautiful service for my father. Brian even adjusted our route to the cemetery so we could drive my dad passed his home one more time. A staff member was always walking around and checking on guests. The professionalism and empathy this staff showed us made for a very warming and memorable goodbye to a wonderful man.

Burns-Kish was very helpful with providing information on all the funeral needs: Where to hold a luncheon, sending thank you notes, obtaining the death certificates, and a post funeral check list. Their staff was sincere in the care that they gave us. We were very satisfied with their services.

Kind and compassionate people! Biggest funeral home I've been to. We come from a big family and most of us live in Chicago. So it was huge, plus close to the expressway. Not only did we have access to one lounge but both. The visitation room was very big. Perfect for our family and friends. Another plus was they had a child play room. That's a huge help for those who have children. Most funeral homes are small, but not this one. The weather was horrible when we had the wake. Many people arrived late into the evening. That being said, we lost track of time and left at 10pm. Most places would've announced the wake was over, but not here. Very respectful, kind, and compassionate people at Burn-Kish Funeral Homes. On behalf of the Ruano family we would like to thank you for making us feel part of your family, and making such a difficult moment a bit easier. Thank you and God Bless everyone at Burn-Kish Funeral Homes.

Burns Kish took very good care of our family. I couldn't have asked for a better service during that difficult time. Services were excellent for our grandfather. Would recommend them!!

Kind and compassionate, Emily and Brian were great in helping us plan services for our Father. They assisted with the newspaper for obit, church, florists, video, etc. and every detail was noted. The facility is clean, welcoming and warm. The Cafe area for family members to take a break is a great bonus. Those can be long days and nights, so that was really nice. We have a lot of family from Chicago, so the location was perfect for family members to get off of the expressway and find the funeral home in Munster. Thank you to everyone at Burns Kish Funeral Home for making a difficult time that much easier!

Burns-Kish Funeral Home, and especially Emily, were wonderful during the hardest time of my life. Both of my parents passed away unexpectedly nine weeks from each other. Emily made everything easy and simple which I am grateful for. I highly recommend Burns Kish.

Burns Kish and the staff (Emily) helped me tremendously when I did not find my flowers. I was panicking during this most difficult of times. Burns Kish has handled most of our family's passings, they've always been good.
