NFDA Pursuit of Excellence Award

In 2016, 2017 & 2018, the associate firm of Bates, Wallace & Heath Funeral Home, Christopher Mitchell Funeral Homes, Inc. of Albion, NY received the Pursuit of Excellence Award, a national award from the National Funeral Directors Association. The Pursuit of Excellence Award is a very prestigious award that in 2018 was given to 163 out of over 11,000 funeral homes, nationally and internationally and one of five in New York State. Christopher Mitchell Funeral Homes, Inc. was one of only five funeral homes in New York State to receive the award as well. The award is given to funeral homes that demonstrate their commitment to the highest professional and ethical standards every single day through providing outstanding service to families and the community in which they are a part of. We at Christopher Mitchell Funeral Homes look forward to bringing our care, professionalism, ethics, and excellence to Bates, Wallace & Heath Funeral Home. It is our unwavering commitment to provide the families we serve the best possible care that we can. We treat every family as if they are our own and take great pride in the quality that we give to each and every family that walks into our funeral home.
