Thank you Bradshaw-Carter for the exceptional service provided during the two services this year for our parents. Tripp Carter and Raymond Bradshaw were exceptional in helping us through this process. Any request we had, from bag pipe players and string musicians, to bartenders for the Celebration of Life were organized by their team with ease. The property is warm and comforting and the central location inside the loop was ideal for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend Bradshaw-Carter for a service for your loved one. You will not find a more caring and professional team.

Dear Clay and the Bradshaw-Carter team,
Thank you all so much for all of your help with Stan's cremation and Memorial Service. You all were truly amazing and we appreciate everything you did for us. It was honestly such a relief knowing we could count on you. Thank you again!

August 17, 2023

Bradshaw-Carter is simply the best. They set the standard for caring, professionalism, and excellence. I have been to many services at Bradshaw-Carter over the years, but this was the first time they took care of a family member – my father. I expect they will take equally good care of me when it is time. Dad had described exactly how he wanted his “Gathering” to go. Tripp Carter and company made it happen exactly as he wished. Even though I thought we were well prepared, when it happens to you, your mind goes blank. Tripp and his staff anticipated my needs, and helped us with every question that came up. Thank you again for your kindness.

Thank you is not a sufficient sentiment when I write this about my experience with Bradshaw Carter. The love and compassion they showed to our family during our time of loss was outstanding and will always be remembered. A truly caring team of people helped us through this difficult time.

In todays world there are few businesses that know the true meaning of service. Bradshaw Carter is a true exception to that rule and in my recent experience went above and beyond service but also performed their services with true compassion and grace. Thank you all for the kindness and caring you gave to our family.

The Bradshaw Carter Team treated us with respect, dignity and like we were a member of their family. We had a complicated funeral with nearly 100 family members and a large crowd. BC made the entire visitation and funeral a seamless process with no hiccups. A beautiful ceremony thanks in large part to the BC team. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars.

We met the most beautiful and wonderful people during our darkest time. Bradshaw-Carter Memorial is an incredible and compassionate group of individuals who make the worst time in your life, a little bit lighter.

Our beloved son and brother passed away unexpectedly in another state. Like many of the reviews, we were not sure where to start, but we knew we needed to get him home. Bradshaw-Carter was chosen through a Google search and after meeting with them, and working with them, we feel it was a sign that we found the right place.

Throughout the process Tripp, Clay, and his team were responsive, and compassionate, and worked hard to make this time about our family celebrating the life we had lost, not being stuck in the details. They took care of many things from the beginning and brought him back to Texas as quickly as possible, coordinating with connections they had in Florida. Their facility serves as a crematorium as well, so we were able to make decisions knowing that our family member was not being jostled from place to place.

We received guidance and assistance every step of the way, and could not be more grateful for their kindness and inclusivity.

Thank you all for your superb service during a difficult time.

With the onset of declining cognitive abilities, as my mother approached her 91st birthday she decided that funeral prearrangements were in order and that the decisions regarding this life event should reflect her wishes. Though living in Houston for the last 13 years, her intention was always to have a traditional funeral in her hometown and be buried next to my dad in Pennsylvania which somewhat complicated the process as it would involve out of state transport and the obvious coordination with two funeral homes. Having known Tripp Carter both personally and professionally, and having witnessed first-hand several funeral and memorial services for friends, co-workers, and acquaintances under the care of Bradshaw-Carter, the choice was an easy one. Well respected in the community and the industry for not only their standard of professionalism, efficiency, and courtesy but their reputation and personal commitment to providing compassionate care to the families dealing with tragic loss at what is truly a very vulnerable, stressful, and emotional time.

Eventually admitted to a long-term nursing facility, under hospice care for many months, my mom’s condition made me consider the cancellation of a trip abroad that had literally been planned for a few years. Reaching out to Tripp with many questions and “what ifs,” he reassured me that mom would be taken care of in the event of her passing until my return. When her time came much later, I remembered his kindness and wise counsel and experienced the same sincerity during the final review of the details related to mom’s journey home.

Everything went according to plan thanks to Tripp and his incredible staff. I will forever be grateful for the guidance and support they provided. Though I thought I was prepared for the inevitable and felt confident with my mom’s funeral prearrangements, I realized quite quickly that … had it not been for Tripp and his most capable, caring, and responsive staff … those last minute concerns and issues which truly cannot be anticipated would have been overwhelming without skilled professionals to seamlessly navigate those matters with competence, poise, and efficiency. I will forever be grateful to Tripp and the team at Bradshaw-Carter not only for the highest level of service they provided, but most especially for the sincerity of their empathy for a son grieving the loss of his mother.

A funeral home is definitely not an easy place to make 'business." However, going through the very difficult time of seeing the imminent demise of my beloved husband Frank, I had to contact Bradshaw and Carter. From the very first call I was absolutely impressed with Mr. Carter's empathy and patience and patience. He and ALL of his staff treated me with dignity and respect understanding my pain at ALL times and supporting me in the most difficult time of my life. They handle the cost of their services putting always my preferences first and never rushing me in making any decisions that would have given them a bigger profit. I will forever be grateful and will always remember my loss with the invaluable sweet support I received from Bradshaw Carter.

Look no further if you are in need of a kind, thoughtful, compassionate and beautifully run funeral service. I have known Trip Carter now for about 15 years and not only is he a caring person but he is also a consummate professional. I was introduced to him when my mother informed me that she was taking me to Bradshaw-Carter to make plans for her own passing. I wasn’t sure what to make of that, but soon realized what a gift she was giving to my sisters and me. His facility is like a beautiful home with lovely antiques and reclaimed elements from some of the grand old manors of Houston. Trip guided us through the decisions necessary in the most caring way. That was 2009. In 2022, when I realized our father was approaching his time, I reached out to Trip and felt greeted by an old friend ready to help. Once again he thoughtfully guided my sisters and me though the process, from the necessary obligations to the more subtle elements making a difficult time much easier. When the time arrived, a lovely staff member arrived at Houston Hospice and took his time explaining the next step and allowed us the space to say goodbye. All the staff kept us on track with every aspect of the process, timing, deadlines and help for the Obit, helping create a beautiful program, recommendations for a celebrant as well as for the memorial service. We are so grateful to Trip and all the staff at Bradshaw-Carter. Thank you Trip.

Bradshaw Carter was wonderful during such a difficult ,emotional time. Tripp Carter spent hours walking us through the process of a cremation & memorial service. He answered every question & never rushed us . We felt very blessed & relieved to have him to take care of all the arrangements of our loved one.

Tripp Carter and his team were amazing as we dealt with the Thanksgiving Day passing of my mom. After reading excellent online reviews and learning that Bradshaw Carter had managed arrangements for our friends’ daughter, I was certain of our funeral home choice since our friends would have had nothing but the best for their dear child. Tripp returned our call within minutes despite the holiday, and provided all the information we needed without making us feel rushed. Methodist Hospital made a major snafu with my mom’s body, but Tripp remedied it with many calls, and faxes, while juggling other major responsibilities. He was very professional and walked us through everything required for a Houston cremation and out-of-state funeral, from the death certificate paperwork to the selection of urns, during our first meeting in his gorgeous funeral home. Most touching was when we returned to identify my mom’s body, he had her beautifully draped with lovely jewel-toned fabric, in a private room, with just her hand exposed (at my request), so we could see her hospital bracelet and distinctive polished nails. A situation that I initially dreaded became a sweet memory. Tripp met with us again when we picked up my mom’s remains, and when I mentioned my concern about how to handle the memorial service program for an out of state church, he showed us many program samples and said Bradshaw-Carter would be happy to do them. I am very picky, and Suzy did a beautiful job, adjusting things at my request, and printing them in just a few days at a very reasonable cost. Bradshaw Carter will be our family’s funeral home of choice in the future. Professional, prompt, accurate, and caring. I can’t say enough good things about Tripp and his team.

Bradshaw-Carter excels as a place to entrust your funeral arrangements. The personnel are conscious of the delicate nature of the circumstances and they treat each situation with respect and dignity. From the moment you walk into the elegant surroundings until the final paperwork is signed, you experience a family type atmosphere. My experience was outstanding. Thank you Bradshaw-Carter.

To all of you who played a key role in the planning and execution of our Mother’s Memorial Service, my brother and I sincerely thank you for making this day as lovely, special and heartfelt as it could be given the circumstances. We are so grateful for all of you as well as your support and comfort throughout this process. Everything was so beautiful – the program and prayer cards, the service, the room layout, the refreshments, the assistants, and of course, Mom’s beautiful urn surrounded by the most gorgeous flower arrangement that we ever could have imagined! I’m sure Mom was very pleased as she looked down on us.

God Bless you all!

With Best Regards,

Tripp was the best. He and his staff did an amazing job of caring for our father (and us) and making things very easy for us in this difficult time. Their efforts culminated in a very beautiful and comforting service for Dad. I would highly recommend Bradshaw-Carter for the personal and empathetic care they provide, with an eye to details we would not have considered. Thanks again Tripp.

Thank you for taking such good care of my husband from the time he died until he was buried. Also, thank you for sending us the five laminated copies of his obituary which will last forever!

September 13, 2022

My loved one passed away suddenly. Even though I was not ready, I had to decide on a funeral home quickly. Bradshaw Carter provided an elevated level of care. To prepare for the next step, they came to me to complete paperwork so that I did not need to leave my home. Following the death of my loved one, they handled the Death Certificate the next week. If you choose this Funeral Home, you will be in good hands. The loss of a loved one is so difficult. To assist you, you need a quality team. Tripp, thank you for your assistance with then entire process.

August 30, 2022

This is an amazing place. It is a beautiful and calming space and the staff is beyond reproach. I recommend it

August 17, 2022

You couldn’t ask a better group of people. I’ve dealt with arranginging many funerals for the family and I always felt like they were playing me on the feelings at the time just to maximize their profit. When I went to see trip and Clay it couldn’t be any better. I felt like I was talking a friend in a very relaxed atmosphere It wasn’t the play on the feelings at all. For various items you needed for the service ie. a casket. They give me books to look at with prices posted books for prayer cards, etc. I able to take my time to figure items out that I needed without banging in my ear telling what I needed to do. If I had a questions I got answer without the sales pitch attached
They are great people to deal with and now consider them friends. I didn’t have florest and Tripp recommended Kirsksey florist and that was home run. Kirksey. All the florals were amazing and I use him a regular basis in my business needs

March 10, 2022

Just wanted to tell all the staff at Bradshaw-Carter thank you for all the help in achieving what Lauren wanted upon her passing. We found the compassion, the genuine concern for our well being and the extremely good support to our family to be what we needed at our time of loss.

We contacted Bradshaw-Carter because they supported KUHF (Houston Public Radio/NPR) which has been essentially the only radio our family has listened to for over 40 years. We had heard their name and support for years. They proved they were a quality group of people with the goal of serving our needs to the very best of their abilities and came through for us with flying colors.

We especially want to thank Tripp Carter and Clay Dippel for their attention to our special requests.

Bradshaw-Carter handled the cremation arrangements for my husband with dignity and grace. They handled every part of it with such care. I called on their help again a few months later when my son passed. I don't know what I would've done without their help. It made a difficult time so much easier to know that Tripp, Raymond, Clay and Suzy were handling things from the first initial phone call to the day of the service. I can't recommend them enough to anyone in need.

December 22, 2021

Bradshaw Carter made the very difficult moment of our loss bearable and dignified. The beauty of the space and the personal care taken with the whole process was calming. Everything was handled with the greatest of care and our personal wishes were honored.

Tripp Carter and the Bradshaw Carter team were amazingly kind and compassionate when we walked through the loss of our cousin. We are profoundly grateful for their gracious professionalism and for the deep sense of empathy that they repeatedly experienced from them. When you are walking through one of the most difficult times of your life, you want the best. Bradshaw Carter is the best. We highly commend the Bradshaw Carter team to you.

My mother was in hospice and wanted to be cremated with no service, so we needed only basic services. Months in advance, I gave hospice the Bradshaw Carter name as my preferred provider, and I notified Bradshaw Carter so she'd be in their records as a future cremation with no service. When she passed late at night, hospice notified them and all the logistics happened behind the scenes. Then I met with Tripp the next morning to handle all the paperwork details. I was pleased with the very efficient process. Because I'll be transporting the ashes to another state for future spreading, he advised me of the details for transporting ashes on an airplane, which I wouldn't have thought of. I'd been to a service handled by Bradshaw Carter, so I knew they provided a high quality full service experience, but this showed they similarly handle more basic services with the same level of professionalism.

When our Uncle passed recently, he had preplanned his arrangements. We found he had actually planned a very elegant party to celebrate his life and not grieve. Tripp and the entire staff worked tirelessly to create his wishes. They were awesome to work with especially since we came from Kansas to deal with the situation. They took over and allowed us to do the other things required. Bradshaw Carter is a beautiful place that makes you feel at ease and at peace while dealing with your loss. I highly recommend them! Thank you for all that you did for us!

It is with upmost sincerity and warmth that I write this review of our experience with Bradshaw-Carter Funeral Home, with a strong emphasis on
Mr. Tripp Carter. Needless to say, when you are trying to come to grips with the death of a loved one and must make arrangements for the service, it is hard to focus. Tripp led us through the whole process professionally, compassionately and thoroughly. His staff followed through on every aspect of the service again, with professionalism and flexibility.
The home offers a quiet elegance, warm welcoming and beautiful surroundings so needed and appreciated by all who attended. I will always carry a strong appreciation for Bradshaw Carter Funeral Home.

Sue Rund

We had my mother-in-law's memorial service at Bradshaw-Carter when she died in 2010 at the age of 93. It was a warm, beautiful service that was planned under the guidance of Tripp Carter

When my husband died in an accident a few weeks ago, I immediately called Tripp who was with me every step of the way in planning the service. Tripp was so compassionate and helpful in every aspect from the day my husband died until the day of his memorial service and even afterward.

The facility is beautiful and so inviting and comforting. Every person who I worked with at Bradshaw-Carter was courteous, knowledgeable, helpful and kind. Thanks to Tripp, Suzy and all of the other people at Bradshaw-Carter for turning our grief into a celebration of my husband's life.

The loss of a loved one is never easy; especially, when one is caught completely off guard and unprepared for the event. Earlier this year, the kind staff at Bradshaw Carter helped me with the funeral arrangements of a close family member. Everyone at Bradshaw Carter was caring, gracious and very helpful. I will always be immensely grateful to them for the service and assistance they provided.

Since my Mothers death was so sudden, we were not prepared. I knew Bradshaw Carter was the premier funeral home in Houston, and I only wanted the best for my Mom, Wanda Lambert. I contacted the funeral home and my family met with Tripp Carter. He was amazing! Dealing with another funeral home for my Fathers death, I felt that Bradshaw Carter was extremely more compassionate, calming and they explained how they will assist us in handling everything for my mothers service utilizing her insurance. There was never a time that we felt pressured to be up sold out of grief, in fact, they helped us keep the cost reasonable, while still giving her an amazingly beautiful service. Everyone that attended the funeral home for the first time, kept commenting how beautiful it was, and how kind the staff were, and how great my Mom looked. My family was a total wreck, but Trip and his staff helped us in the most difficult time. I will always be grateful for that! And continue to tell every family approaching a death to give Bradshaw Carter a call, if they want the best!

Charles Lambert
July 15, 2019

The facility is lovely & comfortable. The staff could not be more accommodating and supportive. All of our guests were impressed with the results without knowing how little effort was required on my part. I could not hope for better service. Additionally, the a la carte pricing is fair and reasonable without compelling the client to purchase packages that include products or services that provide no value or meaning.

Paul Temme
May 27, 2019

I can only echo and fully support my sister Martha's testimonial below. When my husband died recently I first met the lovely people at Bradshaw Carter, and their kindness, and willingness to respond to my particular needs (emotional, financial, and otherwise) was incredibly helpful. Then when my father died soon after this, and we decided to hold the memorial at an unusual and challenging location, they stepped up again. They handled difficult logistics with skill and tact. I would recommend them to anyone in this situation, with great enthusiasm.

Carol McDavid
August 1, 2018

Tripp and his caring staff has just helped our family through the two worst months ever, as we lost my brother in law and my dad, only weeks apart. I agree with all the other testimonials; I can't imagine finding any group better able to guide and assist those of us who suffer the agony of losing our loved ones. I felt they had my back every step of the way, and their thoughtful suggestions made our events more streamlined, elegant, and personalized than I would have thought possible. Tripp helped us think outside the box, and came up with creative ideas which honored our loved ones and contributed so much to the celebrations of their lives. At the end of it all, I felt I had made new friends, and I will never forget how they were there for me during one of the most difficult times I hope I will ever face. Thanks again from the bottom of my healing heart, Martha

My son Craig passed away unexpectedly in Alaska a month ago and our family decided to bring him back to Houston for cremation. I have nothing but praise for Tripp and the rest of the staff. I literally made one phone call and they took care of the rest, arranging for everything, from beginning to end. Their professionalism was outdone only by their empathy and caring. The beautiful surroundings of the funeral home were comforting and peaceful. My heartfelt thanks to all concerned for making a very difficult time a little less difficult.

In our time of great need and sorrow you were extremely helpful guiding us with a personal touch and easing a lot of our burden.

Emmanuel and Victor Sackey

Some people seem to specialize in doing thoughtful deeds. Before you ask, they understand your problems and your needs. They help because they want to. They find joy in being kind, and making others happy. It’s the first thing on their minds. They make this world a better place, by practicing the art of reaching out to others, and giving—from the heart. It’s so nice to know, warm considerate people like you.

Grace Peña

The professional experience was secondary to the genuine caring and attention to detail.

Words are inadequate to express our appreciation for all you have done to see our family through this fragile loss of our beloved daughter. God bless you in your ministry to other families in need. During the visitation, I felt as if it was all family there and not just a facility in charge. Your entire staff works with utmost professionalism. Please accept our warmest thanks.

Maricela,Josie, and Claudia Trevino

Bradshaw-Carter has been on my mind lately. We just reached the one-year milestone of my father’s death. I find such peace—a year and a month later—in knowing that we were able to spend our last bits of time with him at Bradshaw-Carter. You allowed us to place a certain dignity and grace on the memory of his death, which shook us all to the core. I wanted you to know how much I will always appreciate you and your staff. You softened a very hard blow for which I am forever grateful.

Amy Grinstein

I am so glad we found you and your caring home that helps one get through these times of sorrow in such an elegant, yet soothing, gentle way.

Jeanne and Ken Hoppens

Thank you for making my mother’s farewell gathering so lovely. We had many compliments about the tasteful, comfortable surroundings, and I give you the credit. It turned out perfect!

Ellen Gerloff

Thanks for being so kind and nurturing at such a difficult time for us. You made the process so much easier than anticipated. I actually felt good leaving mom with you in such a pretty house.

Bunny and Ivan Edelman

Early on in our process, I had suggested to mom that we contact Bradshaw-Carter because I remembered how wonderful the visitation was that we attended a number of years ago. We had thought that a place that beautiful would cost at the upper end of the spectrum, but were pleased to find that not the case. You did a great job organizing us and all the other moving parts. Not only have virtually all our guests mentioned how wonderful our visitation was, but my mother was also pleased. She continues to remark how beautiful that day was. And, that’s what matters most…mom.

Peter Murgola

You made a difficult process as painless as possible for us. We are so very grateful for your true efforts and the wonderful feeling you all left us with.

Peter, Tina, and Lisa Jabbar

Our family is glad we chose Bradshaw-Carter over the other Houston funeral homes we consulted. Thank you for being here for us and handling all the details for us to send our beloved “Dr. B.” back to his home in Serbia.

Patsy Schillaci

You have a secret in your establishment; the one thing we all strive for in the funeral home business—a kindness of heart and a genuine sense of caring for your fellow man. You have uniqueness without compromise.

Rudy Cerda

Chad Vice, Havenbrook Funeral Home

Since words could never express my appreciation for the awesome job that you and all the other folks at Bradshaw-carter have done for me, I have become a one-man walking “Chamber of Commerce” for your establishment. I not only tell everyone about the “boutique” funeral home fit for royalty, but also express to them the humanness of Tripp Carter and his free burial of infants under two and the homeless.

James D. Pitcock, Jr.

Thank you for all that you do that makes such a positive difference in the lives of others. May God continue to richly bless you.

The Reverend Dr. Russell J. Levenson

In life’s darkest hour you held out a beacon of hope and goodness to my son Hank and daughter-in-law Marit. Devastated by the death of their infant daughter Mathilde, they turned to your firm for the funeral arrangements. Your offer to cover the funeral costs touched them to the core. Your generosity, kindness and sympathy for these young parents was remarkable; something rarely seen today. Their experience with your firm has been told to many friends as an affirmation that Goodness, Kindness,Compassion does thrive even in a city as BIG as Houston. May God reward you richly for your kindness.

Julia Stout

Bradshaw-Carter seems to specialize in doing thoughtful deeds. Before you ask, you understand our needs. You help because you want to…it shows!…you are all so kind. The world is a better place because of you and the way that you reach out to others in their time of need…giving so much…from the heart. I feel so thankful that you cared for my mother, me, and my family. With much gratitude…

Lizzy Hargrove

I never expected to ever send a note of thanks to a funeral home. Our thanks to you for showing your prices clearly and pointing out how we could save. Astoundingly, you never tried to sell“up”. All of the family are pleased with your services, and I have spread the word. I am happy to recommend BC.

Rosamay Davis

I want to thank you and Bradshaw Carter so very much for the wonderful care you gave to Margo Lamb’s arrangements. From beginning to end I thought everything was perfect. You took care of matters that I had not even thought about, and made everything smooth and stress free, and provided a beautiful memory for all involved. I greatly appreciate the sincere thought you gave to all of this.

Jean Garwood

The owner handled our infant child’s death with more dignity and respect than I thought humanly possible. The fact that this place is beautiful in every respect goes to show how much the ownership cares about the service they provide to the community. If there was a way to give more stars I would do it in a heart beat.
