“Brember Family Funerals provide a high quality service where they are with you each step of the way through such a difficult time. We were lucky enough to have Chris as our wedding celebrant in Jan 2015 where he met my Dad.
Last week we met with Chris again, but this time for an unexpected circumstance. Chris gave my Dad such a beautiful service, our family were so please with it and has positive feedback. We would highly recommend both services offered by Chris.
Thank you Chris and your team!”
“Chris and his team provided us with excellent service when we required them. We have utilised their services for our wedding, our baby sons naming day and funeral service.
Chris is a lovely family man who is amazingly empathetic and shows his heartfelt compassion. Truly we couldn’t have asked for a better, more caring team to conduct the services and look after our needs. Every time we’ve needed something Chris and his team have delivered beautifully.”
Chris did an amazing job at my mums wedding, she told us she was very happy and in the event of her passing she wanted him to also be there for her funeral. Well, little did we know that 4 years later this would be the case.
Chris Thank you so much for all your help on the hardest day of our lives mum would have be very thankful. Highly recommended!!
My family cannot thank Cherie and the team, for being so helpful, caring, supportive and compassionate when our dear dad passed during COVID-19 restrictions.
Cherie went above and beyond helping mum and the family, step by step, making it stress free during a time of much sadness.
Bob, the celebrant, was lovely making our farewell to dad...."beautiful".
My family are forever grateful and so happy with the care given to our dear dad before, during and after the service. Thank you once again for all your compassion and kindness. xx
My beautiful mother passed away Sunday 11/4/2021 at 728pm surrounded by her children and grandchildren. A call was made to Brember family funeral services to advise them of my mother’s passing.
I was greeted by 2 staff members from Brember who advised me what the process was in transferring mum from her room to Brember site. I was invited to assist in the process if I wanted to or just be present. The staff members were absolutely caring and supportive they also allowed my children the time they needed to process everything and my son assisted with guiding the trolley to their vehicle.
The whole arranging of a funeral service seemed so overwhelming however the process was done with a lot of care and respect. So many of my extended family and friends said the service was really beautiful and I have Chris, Jamie and staff from Brember family funeral services to thank.
Chris and the team at Brember Funerals were exceptional when we lost my dear Nan mid August during the middle of lockdown. They were respectful, kind, helpful and walked my sister and I through the whole process. We had live streaming added due to restrictions on attendees and the celebrant Bob Cooper they recommended was excellent. We have had nothing but compliments on the beautiful service. We couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to give our nan the send off age deserved. Thank you Chris.
Exceptional and caring service from Chris, Cherie, and the team from Brembers. It was a pleasure to work with them, highly recommended.
Chris, Brittany and the entire team were exceptional. They took great care of Dad while he was with them. Both Chris and Brittany were empathetic and supportive. They were tentative to all our needs during this difficult time. I would highly recommend them.
I would like to share my personal experience with Chris and Cherie at Brember Family Funerals. From the start to the completion of the funeral service arranged for my dearly departed brother, I can only sum up our experience with them as exceptional, very caring and handled very professionally every single step of arranging what our family requested.
With the loss of a loved one, we had to call a few funeral service providers to see what was offered and to get an idea on cost. As my other siblings are both quite old, we knew we wanted a funeral service close to where they lived in Werribee, so they could easily attend and we wanted a proper church service. After calling a few funeral providers, we found they were not able to meet our requirements and found they were not willing to go further to look into our requests. I was extremely lucky to find Brember Family Funerals on Google and even through they were far away, across the city from us I just thought I'd give them a call to see what they had to offer as their website mentioned doing funerals in other areas.
I spoke with Chris, the owner who I immediately found to be very sincere and without hesitation, gave me the assistance I was hoping for, answering every question I had and most of all, could accommodate giving me a personalised service, in my older sibling's suburb of Werribee. He said he had to call a few churches in our area and felt it should be no problem. I gave him some dates and times that suited us and in less than an hour, Cherie, his funeral consultant and arranger sent me an email to confirm they found a church and the date it can be held, with a follow up phone call from Cherie to confirm this in person. From that point on we were able to confirm the service and their total cost was far more competitive than the local funeral providers who also could not provide us with a local service.
Cherie came to meet with us and handled all the funeral arrangements, made many great suggestions that we took on board and just made the whole process stress-free and easy for us during this difficult time.
The service went really well, held in a beautiful church chapel, starting with a 30 minute viewing time, followed by the service. The Reverend conducted the service with sermons, speeches, and reciting the Psalms we had chosen beautifully and we played a tribute presentation of my brother's life.
The lockdown had meant we could only have 10 family members attend but it was still a beautiful send off for our most loved brother. To have Chris the owner, Cherie and some of their staff attended personally to assist with the service and walk my brothers casket to the hearse, made the service that much more special for us. it was a most beautifully arranged service as we had hoped for and a memory we will always treasure.
One last and very important mention is that they will go to any area and provide you with a very personalised service in your suburb. I found this to be quite incredible when none of the other funeral service providers could help me out with this.
Thank you to the wonderful Brember family team for their amazing professionalism, great service and truly caring interaction. I would without hesitation recommend you to any family who requires your services.
We can’t speak highly enough of Cherie and the team,the compassion and care they displayed after mums passing plus the professionalism and level of service we received was truly outstanding,I wouldn’t hesitate in highly recommending them
We as a family have used Brember Funerals on two occasions with most recently being our Dad. Chris and his staff are absolutely wonderful in navigating you through such a minefield of decisions at such an emotional time. Cherie was also a great support to our family with nothing you ask for being to much.. 100% recommend this family business 🙏
Brember Family funerals were amazing. In such a sad time in our lives they made the funeral experience so incredibly easy ( not once but twice 🙁) and everything ran really smoothly. Although Covid19 was in effect they were still able to maintain and sustain a safe environment for my family and friends . Staff were amazing Couldn’t have asked for a better service . Brember Family funerals will go above and beyond .
We were extremely happy with our experience with Brember Funerals. Everything was carried out professionally and promptly. Cherie was passionate about ensuring our wishes were carried out. Thank you so much. Kathy and David.
Thank you so much to Cherie and the team.. Cherie came into my home at one of the worst moments of my life. The ease of which everything took place was amazing.. would highly recommend to everyone
Brember provided us a stress-free and seamless service. They took care of everything for us. Many thanks
Brember Family Funerals were respectful, informative, professional and kind in looking after and honouring my father. They had the personal touch I was looking for, one that other businesses seemed to have lost. I was very happy with their friendly service. Thank you
I would like to Thank the Team at Brember Family Funerals
At a time of Stress and Sadness when Mum passed away recently in the middle of Stage 4 lockdown. I reached out to Chris and his Team. The support and advice that was given to my family and myself as they guided us through the process of making all the arrangement for Mum made the process so much easier. If like me, you find yourself in need of a Funeral Home for your loved one. May I offer the Highest of recommendation for Chris and the Compassionate team of people at Brember Family Funerals.
Thank you Cherie and Chris for making the funeral of our Mother/Mother-in-law such a special occasion.
You both did a wonderful job helping arrange the funeral, and co-ordinating with our priest,
Your compassion and attention to detail with the process gave us confidence, and the service ran flawlessly.
We would highly recommend Brember Family Funerals.

Chris and Cherie made a challenging time really smooth and easy to navigate. Were very helpful with additional requests and went well above expectation with their help under difficult circumstances. Highly recommend!
Chris and co are so kind and compassionate, they have looked after both my mum and dad now. I highly recommend them.
We feel very grateful Brember family funerals took such good care of us after the passing of our beloved Don. They were so kind, respectful, caring and considerate at every stage. Having someone come to our home to prepare for the service took the stress out of an already difficult time. Many thanks
Chris was so very caring and understanding from the first initial phone call. I had called a few different companies prior and had not mentioned this to Chris. He understood the needs of my brother and I from the beginning, and met with us within two hours.
He was very kind, welcoming and talkative when needed. He spoke to my brother, uncle and I and discussed what we wanted to organise for our late father. After our first meeting that went for a couple of hours, we were happy to go with Brember.
We also met Funeral Bob, who was a lovely older gentlemen who was to run the ceremony. He was such a genuine lad, and could imagine our late father having a beer or ten with him.
Out of the entire experience, nothing was left out of the service. We were able to celebrate the life of our dad the only way we knew how, and it could not have been possible without the outstanding and caring service from Brember.
If you have looked around and not quite sure who to choose for a funeral service as it's such a hard thing to deal with. Then please at least call Chris and have a chat.
I highly recommend Brember Family Funerals. They performed a very professional service and treated my family as part of their own family. Chris was very caring and accommodating. The cost is affordable as well. My husband's funeral was a memorable one.
