    Jazz at the Chimes Survey Comments:
  • My Parents, grandparents, aunt and cousin are all in a niche at the Chapel. I am very pleased with the care that the Chapel has taken in the room where our family niche is. Recently the Chapel cremated my husband. Everything was handled very efficiently and professionally, I was very pleased with the experience.

  • Our family went through very difficult period in the last two years. We cremated four family members in just two years. I arranged all four funerals at the Chapel of the Chimes Oakland. We used the Hindu Antim Sanskar package. The Service and support by the Chapel was “absolutely flawless”. They made our difficult occasion as easy as possible. The Chapel was peaceful and dignified and service by staff flawless!

  • I would definitely recommend Chapel of the Chimes to friends and family. Tommy Marsden really took Care of our entire family through a very difficult time. He was available any time for questions & needs, he was caring and compassionate. He made the very difficult task of planning my husband’s burial & service as easy as it could have been. I couldn’t ask for a better guide through all of the difficult decisions that have to be made. I so appreciate everything that Chapel of the Chimes and Tommy did for us.

  • I wish I could find the perfect words to describe how you helped my family and get through this most difficult time for all of us. You really know how to b there at the exact moment unexpected and help families with decisions we never had to think about. I am grateful for your caring staff we followed you through all my mother’s wishes and made a sad event a lasting memory she would be happy with and we knew it. God bless you all and much love…

  • We couldn’t have asked for better care and support from Chapel of the Chimes. Everyone was helpful and clearly “customer services” is a value you all demonstrate. You never said “No, we can’t do that” and accommodated our changes and request. Thank you all!

  • We had attended many services at Chapel of the Chimes over the years. This was the first service for our immediate family. Everything from location, parking, facilities, and help from Chapel staff was always outstanding. I would highly recommend to friends and family members.

  • Chapel of the Chimes was extremely helpful and sensitive to our needs when Grandpa passed away. We were greeted and shown all the choices we needed to make but never felt rushed or left with questions of any kind.
    M. H.
  • My experience with Mr. Tom Marsden and Mrs. Sophie Arreta was informative, comforting professional and I can truthfully say very pleasant. The two ladies who acted as ushers were also quite pleasant. The minister recommended by Mr. Marsden gave just the right spiritual touch. I would definitely recommend Chapel of the Chimes.
