Bill Basralian and his assistant Vanessa recently provided services for my father-in-law's wake and funeral. Bill was compassionate, and easy going. He went out of his way to help our family in our time of need. He is professional and experienced. Our family felt so comfortable with him; we knew he was going to take care of our needs. Based on personal experience, I highly recommend Bill Basralian's funeral services.

William, Vanessa and staff could not be more accommodating. The home was lovely and made the visitation that much more special as only one service at a time took place. I've seen many open caskets where the person looks nothing like they had in life. William is a master at what he does, as my father looked as he had in life, but simply at rest. They never pressured me in buying any service, they listened and were genuinely warm and professional. My whole family was extremely pleased by the service they provided.

This is a wonderful place with incredible people. We could not be happier with the service provided by William G. Basralian and staff. In our family’s time or need they took us in and treated us like family. This is the way it should be!

Bill and his staff have gone above and beyond for our family in our time of grief. The level of service is outstanding. Bill is kind and compassionate easing our "worries" about arrangements. The whole experience was easy on the family and very professional. I would not hesitate to use their services again should we need them.

I've known Bill Basralian for almost 35 years and have not met a kinder more compassionate funeral director. He is organized and meticulous in his funeral arrangements. And he his sincerely sympathetic...which is so important when you are arranging a funeral.

The staff, and the owner (Bill)of this funeral home are very helpful, kind and compassionate. They are very experienced after many years in this business, and they helped our family a lot through this sad time. I have had to use the services of the Basralian Funeral Home twice, and I was so relieved that they took care of everything for me. They made all the service, transportation and cemetery plans for us.They also notified the Army, and my husband had a honorary color guard salute at the cemetery. One family member passed in the hospital, and another in Florida. Reliable, honest and sincere.

Bill is the most compassionate, generous, and caring person I know. He talks with you in a way that you know he really cares. Losing a loved one is very hard and you are at your most vulnerable moment. Bill has a great gift being able to relieve any worries or anxiety that you are going through. His staff goes over and above to make your experience go flawlessly. He becomes lifetime friends with everyone he comes in contact with. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

During a difficult time when dealing with the loss of a loved family member, Bill made us all very comfortable. He explained everything to our satisfaction and fulfilled his promise by tending to every last detail. Both of my parents were waked at Basralian and Bill arranged their funerals personally and perfectly. A few of our friends and their parents have also been waked at Basralian Funeral Home. They all have said how personal and accommodating Bill is and how well they were treated by Bill and his staff. I always recommend to my friends to go see Bill, if and when that fateful day comes to make arrangements for a departed loved one. I give Basralian Funeral Services 5 Stars. I'd give it 10 if it was an option.

Losing a parent is devastating. Bill and Vanessa literally held my hand through the difficult process of planning the services for my cherished mother. Bill was compassionate, knowledgeable, and meticulous. Vanessa was so kind to my grieving children, organized and anticipated our needs. I'm so grateful for them both. My mother's wake and funeral were beautiful, just like her.

Bill and Vanessa you both are genuinely caring and compassionate people. You both have the gift of providing great comfort and conveying serenity and guidance with the death and funeral process. I have received so many compliments on how beautiful everything was handled. Your service is impeccable. The Brady family is very grateful for all the help and support through this difficult time. Hands down Basralian Funeral Home is by far, in my opinion, the best funeral home in Bergen County!

We were brokenhearted and stressed. Bill and Vanessa were a godsend. They answered every call (and there were many) and every question with compassion and empathy. During a most disconsolate time in our lives, I'm glad we could count on Bill and his staff to lead us through all the details.

Bill Basralian and his staff really understand how to help families to prepare a funeral service even while they grieve. Every detail is discussed in full before a decision is made. He guides you through your options and lets you make your own choices. His approach is personal and spiritual. We came to view and his staff, particularly Vanessa, as being part of our family.

Bill and Vanessa were absolutely incredible in helping us plan our father's service at their funeral home. They went over every detail with us so thoroughly and were exceptionally kind, flexible and patient. Bill called just about every day leading up to the service with updates or just to check in to see if I had any questions. His compassion and service were truly above and beyond, and our family was so grateful to have them on our side.

Bill Basralian is a kind and caring individual...the perfect personality for the business that he is in. He is both professional and empathetic. He guided us through this very tough process making it easier for us to deal with. My Mom suffered for many years and when she passed her physical being was severely affected. Our plans for a closed viewing were changed when Bill brought back my Mom's beauty and peacefulness...for that we will be eternally grateful. I would highly recommend Basralian Funeral Service! Thanks Bill for everything!!! Doreen and Family

Bill Basralian was so kind and helpful in guiding our family through the whole process of our mother's wake and funeral arrangements. Our mother had suffered for a long time and the illness had ravaged her beautiful looks. Bill had our mom shine! She was so lovely. His assistant, Vanessa, worked with our family to prepare a truly wonderful digital video tribute using our photos. Many of the guests commented on what a great job it was and also on the background music. Bill and his staff are available and helpful from the very beginning until the very end. Bill had been just as great to our family when our dad died in 2010, so mom knew what she wanted for her own arrangements. Thank you so much, Bill, for making a very difficult time so much easier for Janice, Bob, and myself.

Bill Basralian and his staff are professionals. They go far beyond the norm. I live in Sedona, AZ and when my Dad passed away in NJ, Basralian Funeral was there to guide our family and give my Dad, a Veteran, a five-star salute to my Dad's life. Thank you, I highly recommend William G. Basralian Funeral Home.

Our family worked with Bill for over a period of six weeks. He helped my sister and I make decisions related to our dad's funeral. He not only assisted us but cared for our family. Bill kept telling us, "Don't worry about it, I will take care of it." and....he did!! Additionally, his staff answered my numerous phone calls and always got back to us with the answers. It is difficult to bury a family member, but Bill and his staff take on the responsibility so that you can spend the time with family. By the way, Bill has a sense of humor, which honestly, was greatly appreciated. You will not regret using his service!

Bill, the owner, is such a kind and wonderful man. Our family has used their services on several occasions and have been amazed by the experience. They not only make a difficult time easier, but they treat you like they would treat their own family. They are extremely fair and accommodating. Would highly recommend them.

William is a Godsend! I used his services when my father passed years ago and had to use him again when my mom was in hospice. He made the entire process so easy. He was accommodating and even made me laugh during this tough time. Most of all, he did an amazing job with my mother. She looked amazing and I will always be grateful for how wonderful a job they did with her considering how I saw my mom last in hospice. His staff is professional and when I had to bring my young daughter with me to take care of some things with Mr. Basralian, his dog Buddy was amazing too! Would highly recommend him and his service. And he is reasonable in his pricing. God bless him!!!

It is almost impossible to put into words how kind and gentle a man Mr. Basralian is- and how he took so much of the pain out of the loss of our beloved Dad recently. My Dad also knew him when his own sister (our Aunt) died and Bill was tremendous through that process as well. His grace and sense of humor under difficult circumstances and clever personality eased everyone through the process. We cannot thank him and his team enough for all they did to help us through a very emotional and trying time. We recommend and compliment Bill and his team in the highest possible way.
