We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

Phil, you and your staff went far beyond my expectations. I was touched deeply by the caring, all of the assistance in planning and then the carrying out of the arrangements. Friends and family told me that Kathy’s service was one of the nicest and beautiful they had ever been to. It was a simple but elegant service. In all honesty you made an emotional and difficult time easier to deal with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Larry Rollins

Hinsey-Brown Knightstown Chapel was absolutely wonderful to our family. We were treated with excellent respect, care and concern. We couldn't have asked for better people to work with. We were beyond pleased. Their service was the best. The memorial service was handled expertly-professional but with a very caring, compassionate atmosphere. I don't think it could have been improved upon. Shane Williams was wonderful to work with in every way. Leanna Gross was so helpful in seeing to the details and keeping us informed. -Family of Diana Jo Shelton

Joe Ryan April 14, 2020

my daughter's service was at our church. Following the visitation, the director asked if we would like her body returned to the funeral home for the night. I never would have thought that on my own, so it was very appreciated that he asked. We had them do that. Kevin Brown made a visit to our home to have cremation papers signed and then talked to me when it would take place. They also personally delivered the death certificates to me at home. Kevin Brown and Shane Williams were very compassionate, kind, professional and accommodating. -Family of Emily Ann Patton

Deidre Powers December 21, 2020

I considered using another facility prominently used by my husband's family but I was very impressed with the services of Hinsey-Brown. I was also extremely impressed by the care and concern shown and help given by Jon McCutchen. I was so pleased with all the "extras", grave marker, Christmas ornament, card, etc. They gave me the time to make all the decisions and making us feel so comfortable and no pressure. I was so pleased with the way my husband looked. He looked so good. It was amazing. -Family of Gene V. Wise

Cheryl Wise November 12, 2019

Jon McCutchen was so helpful and sensitive to my family's needs to plan the arrangements. We talked on the phone a couple of times and he always asked how I was doing. Everything was so meaningful to me, from the office staff, the funeral directors and all of their staff. It all meant so much and helped us through a difficult time. I would like to recognize Lenville Gross in helping with the pre-planning I needed to do a year ago. He was so good at explaining things and was so patient kind as I tried to make decisions for my husband.

When making the service selections, they offered a great variety of choices, explained costs and helped with all questions. All aspects to mom's services were great. My mother had to be flown in from out of state. Phil had told me prior to her passing what to do. I made one phone call after she passed and the funeral home did the remainder. We were very pleased! -Family of Mildred Hail

Special trips, Stockings for Soldiers, Santa Claus for nursing homes, Mourning Walk & Breakfast, grief support and their aftercare program, Help for the Holidays, pre-planning community luncheons and workshops and special speaker events. Hinsey-Brown does so much to help the family. My sons wanted their dad driven to Knightstown around my parents farm, where our family had such wonderful memories.

My father pre-planned his funeral arrangements years prior to his death. Some of the merchandise he chose was no longer available. The funeral director showed us similar pieces without any pressure to spend more money. I appreciate that more than he will ever know. They were fantastic every step of the way. From the pick up of my father's body to the end of the service, the staff showed dignity towards my father. I am so appreciative of that. I also appreciate the chance to tuck my father in before closing the casket. That was something I'll remember for the rest of my life. The entire staff I dealt with were so compassionate and everyone was so accommodating. -The family of James Jordan

Hinsey-Brown Funeral Service in a first class business. Every single step of the process was handled with kindness, sincerity, and an honest desire to help to the best of their abilities. Compassion is a common thread for everyone there. Jon McCutchen had a willingness to help in anyway possible. John Henderson made mother look absolutely beautiful.

John Henderson was very respectful of the difficulty of the experience. He was very clear about prices, options, etc. I just needed a direct cremation and he was very informative and kind; I did not feel any pressure about purchasing other things or doing things I did not want to do. I really appreciated that choice and freedom as I had been a little nervous before going in. I felt he listened to what I wanted and did not very well. -Family of Jeremy Lee Hicks

Debbie Rempe October 03, 2019

At Christmas in 2016 I lost my Mom. At that time I was also caring for my husband who was hospitalized earlier in the month. Being an only child I had full responsibility for caring for Mom & making her arrangements. John Henderson, Leanna & Lenville Gross were fantastic--taking me under their wings and guiding me step by step through the process--making everything as easy as possible. John made sure that he or another staff member was at my side and at my beck and call through the entire process. Earlier this year I called John again, telling him that my husband's time was short and he could go at any time. We went through everything needed for the death certificate, and he asked if I had a mortuary near us in Tennessee that I would like to use when the time came. I didn't and he said he would take care of it. An hour later he called with all the information, then told me when the time comes just place one call to him & he would take care of the rest--which he. Again, all plans and decisions rested upon me and John served as my friend by making me feel secure, protected, cared for and even pampered as he was able to make arrangements for an AF honor guard--which he surprised me with. I brought lots of memorabilia with me that spoke to all aspects of who my husband was & what made people love him. Not a word was said about my having too much--it was all displayed beautifully & with honor. His 20-year military career was important to me & that was portrayed with respect and tasteful arrangement of everything. John even helped my friend & I to find a motel room when everything in the area seemed booked. I cannot say enough about John, Leanna, Lenville and the other people I have worked with at Hinsey-Brown in Knightstown. I would and have recommended them without any hesitation or reservation. They know their jobs and their compassion is obvious. They show respect toward everyone--family of the deceased and visitors alike. They do lots of little things that most of us wouldn't think about, but when it is needed--it is no longer a little thing. I cannot thank them enough for being there for me during both of my losses. I would definitely utilize their services again.

Berniece Wheeler September 07, 2019

Kevin Brown and his staff are wonderful. They conduct whatever type of service the family wishes.

He gave us his cell phone number and was available when we needed him. -Family of James Michael Parker, Jr

We were never rushed-not in the planning with a dozen people-not in finalizing everything based on travel and a second mortuary. The photo book they prepared for us was a pleasant surprise. John Henderson soent all the time we (all 11 or 12 of us) needed planning everything and coordinating it all.

Mr. Phil Hinsey and his staff should be identified as the "standard" of the funeral home care and service. The others should strive to be as good as they are.

They are just so compassionate, thoughtful and professional. -Family of Anna Mae Antic

During the most difficult time, the funeral home staff did anything and everything to make this as easy as possible.

This was my first time ever planning a funeral and was very impressed with all the people at Hinsey-Brown, especially Jon McCutchen and Priscilla Thurston. The level of attention to detail was outstanding. Priscilla was very patient with us emailing pictures to her. Jon McCutchen was wonderful to deal with. He's very knowledgeable and just the right combination of sincerity and good will.

We live in northwestern Indiana and have been to many funerals in this area. Nothing here compares to how well Hinsey-Brown prepares bodies. Someone there has true talent, and it is obvious when compared to others work we have seen. -Family of Virginia Sheffield

We were very satisfied with Hinsey-Brown in Knightstown. We have used them twice this year and couldn't have asked for a more compassionate group. Leanna Gross and John Henderson were easy to talk to and very good at their jobs. -Family of Betty L. Linch

We have visited Hinsey Brown Funeral Service on several occasions, as visitors and for family funerals. The staff is very professional and very kind while meeting all our needs. Everyone there has always treated us like we are a priority. I would like to recognize staff member WANDA JONES as the kindest and most sincere person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Her presence and kind words are like an angels kiss of comfort. She is truly a gift from God. She adds a lot of greatness to an already great place. I would not go anywhere else.

The care they showed for us was exceptional. They had plenty of staffing to help with any needs. The owner was on vacation but still made several phone calls to help with our needs and answer any questions we had.

Kevin Brown was excellent in helping the family at this time. His staff was very friendly, caring and knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend Hinsey-Brown to anyone.

We found Hinsey-Brown to be the best equipped, staffed and funeral home that was capable of meeting our needs. Our brother had another service in a large city prior to his service at Hinsey-Brown Knightstown and that larger funeral home failed to meet our needs. Allen Collier and Phil Hinsey were outstanding in providing a meaningful service.

My husband and I were very pleased with the overall performance of their staff. The appearance of our son was very comforting to us. He looked so natural. Jon McCutchen was extra helpful while arranging our son's services. He was quiet and laid back but very knowledgeable, which is what we needed at that time.

We were treated with such kindness and respect. The staff went far above and beyond solving any issue we had. I can't give them enough praise for all they did and how our family was treated! I feel no improvements could have been made. Everything was perfect! They made us feel like family. We loved Kevin Brown. He was so kind and patient with us.

The whole staff did an amazing job and I appreciated the willingness to go above and beyond. The photobook's were very nice! Phil Hinsey helped us and did an amazing job. Keep up the great work!

On the morning of January 14, 2013 Angels left the presence of God and escorted our beloved husband and father, Danny Lee, into Glory. As a believer, this was the best day of his life, however, for his wife and family it was the beginning of a very long and sad season. Kevin Brown was contacted early that morning and from that moment, he and his staff, including Wanda Jones very respectfully helped us make very difficult decisions. When we arrived at Hinsey Brown later that day, we were greeted by Kevin who informed us that they already had Dad there. This was a great comfort to us. Their kind support continued throughout and beyond the service. David Brown spent weeks helping us find just the right stone for just the right memorial for a man so very loved. He didn’t stop until that perfect marker was set into place. It’s very important to say that after the service is over is when the really hard part begins. The part where you realize the absence and emptiness left behind by a loved one. This is when true grief sets in and you have to learn how to go on without this beautiful person in your life. And we are so very thankful that the love, kindness and support of the Hinsey Brown staff continue into and throughout this process with their extensive after care program. They provide information on what to expect, offer comfort, and share a place to share and work through this difficult process with others going through the stages of grief themselves. After more than 4 years, their care continues. They sponsor outings for their families such as shows at Beef and Boards, Symphony on the Prairie, Indian games and more. Our family is so thankful to them. There is no other group of people we would entrust the care of a loved one to after death. We would like to thank Kevin, Wanda, David and your entire staff. Words cannot really express what your kind compassion has meant to us.

Jeanette Lee

John Henderson, Ralph Thompson and Leanna Gross were very kind, professional and helpful. They made me feel like family, their concern in making everything just right was very appreciated. They acted like my personal assistants, guiding me step by step throughout the preparations and all the way to our final dealings. They provided me with confidence and support. After the service, I wish I would have had the service recorded and was pleasantly surprised to find they had already recorded it.

Berniece Wheeler

A pleasant experience in an unpleasant time. Jon McCutchen was excellent in his role as funeral director. He was very professional and cared for all our needs. Everyone was caring and responsive. We could not have had a better experience.

Tim Renshaw

My family and myself couldn't have been treated any kinder during this very hard time. John Henderson was so helpful with every detail. We were all very pleased with mother's service. John went above and beyond to make this very terrible time very comforting for my family.

I want to thank Hinsey-Brown for the services they provided. Kevin Brown and the entire staff were professional, prompt and efficient all during and after this emotionally difficult time.

There is not a more caring funeral home in this town. Their compassion is beyond measure at a most difficult time. My mother looked wonderful, as she did before Alzheimer's took its toll; she looked herself again. The video tribute was well done & most appreciated. Phil Hinsey is a credit to his profession. Always available, always understanding and always east to work with. He truly is "called" to this profession. Other staff members were always courteous, friendly and helpful.

Kevin Brown was very accommodating in pre-arranging our services and carried out our wishes perfectly at the time of the funeral. We couldn't have asked for the service to go any better.


Kevin, Wanda and Molly went above and beyond what I could have needed. They made each step easy to endure. Very kind and caring!


Kevin Brown is such a phenomenal person. I felt so comfortable making these arrangements. The staff is also very attentive and show a lot of attention to detail.
