    The first thing you should do is find a funeral home you feel comfortable with. The funeral director should make you feel at ease and arrange a time to meet with you.
    They will sit down with you and your family to work out if you’d like a burial or cremation service in a church or chapel, or other location, the colour of flowers you’d prefer, the type of coffin that’s suitable, and the words and songs you’d want during the funeral service.

Have questions about arranging a funeral? 
We were very pleased with Brember Family Funerals. Chris was very caring and respectful and there was never any pressure. We chose a direct committal for my father and Brember handled all the details seamlessly. 

Whether you choose to hold your service at either a Chapel, Church or another Venue this is also another way to be able to tailor your celebration the way that you want. They did exactly what they said they would do for the fee (and the fee was substantially less than other funeral homes). We highly recommend Brember Family Funerals.
