~ Quiet Location  Our immaculate facilities are located in historic downtown Brandon "off the beaten path" you could say; we offer a serene and convenient location central to local churches, senior's homes and local services.

~ Our On-Staff Funeral Celebrants A Funeral Celebrant is a layperson, clergy person or funeral director who has been trained in the specific area of conducting funeral services for families who are not affiliated with a church or religion. A Celebrant will provide a funeral service that is very personalized to reflect the personality and lifestyle of the deceased, incorporating special stories, songs and experiences that defined the loved one.
