Funerals in Queensland have changed over the years. They are far more personalised to celebrate the life of the person who has died.

Be it a burial, cremation or memorial service in the Brisbane or surrounding area, you can be sure Anton Brown Funerals can make your service memorable.

Below we have listed our basic services, as well as some added extras that that our Funeral Directors can assist you with in making your funeral service memorable. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about any of the options offered here, or other requests you may have.

Cremation Services  
   
Chapel Service and Cremation This is a service that is held in one of the many Crematorium Chapels in Brisbane. These can be either a religious service with a Priest or a non-religious service using a Funeral Celebrant. You may even have a member of the family or a friend conduct the service. These services are normally around 30 minutes long, although if you need a longer time for the service a double booking can be made. The cremation then occurs after everyone has left the chapel. Many of the crematoriums have a condolence lounge so that family and friends can get together for a coffee and chat after the service.
Church Service and Cremation

If you desire a religious funeral service, then you may have a service in your church, or a church in your area. This would be conducted by the Parish Priest. On completion of the funeral service at the church, the hearse would then leave for the crematorium. It is usual these days for the family not to follow the hearse to the Crematorium but to stay at the church with family and friends for refreshments, or go home.

Non Attended Cremation Some families do not want a full funeral service so we offer a non attended cremation service. After talking with the family and completing the necessary paperwork we take the deceased person to the crematorium. Many families then hold a memorial service when they place the ashes at their final resting place.
   
Burial Services  
   
Chapel Service and Burial This is a service that is held in one of the many Cemetery Chapels in Brisbane. These can be either a religious service with a Priest or a non-religious service using a Funeral Celebrant. You may even have a member of the family or a friend conduct the service. These services are normally around 30 minutes long, although if you need a longer time for the service a double booking can be made. On completion of the service in the chapel everyone moves to the graveside, usually in the same cemetery, for the final commital. Some of the cemeteries have a condolence lounge so that family and friends can get together for a coffee and chat after the service.
Church Service and Burial If you desire a religious funeral service, then you may have a service in your church, or a church in your area. This would be conducted by the Parish Priest. On completion of the funeral service at the church, the hearse would then leave for the crematorium. The funeral cortege would then make its way to the cemetery for burial. Once at the graveside the committal and burial would occur.
Graveside Service A graveside service can be conducted where a service in a church or chapel is not required. Everyone gathers at the graveside and the service occurs there. We can provide a CD player for music and a PA system for larger services if required.
Non Attended Burial As with the non attended cremation, after meeting with the family and completing the necessary paperwork we take the coffin to the cemetery for burial. The family need to liase with the cemetery to arrange monuments or plaques.
   
Extra Services  
   
Catering Many of the Cemeteries and Crematoriums now have condolence rooms for family and friends to meet after the service. This is a good option for people who want to have a wake but do not want to have people back at their home. There are various menu options catering for light snacks to hot foods depending on the families wishes. Your Funeral Director will show you the menu options for you to make a choice. Some venues price per person attending, with some venues having a set minimum number for each option available.

Many of the Crematorium Chapels, and quite a few churches have the equipment to play DVD video slideshows during a service. Set to a meaningful piece of music, more and more people are now reflecting on peoples lives this way.

We are able to assist you in producing a slideshow, or can produce it for you. We also have video equipment for hire if you are having the service in a venue without these facilities.

We may also be able to assist you if you would like a video recording or audio cassette of the service.

Military Poppy Services In recognition of someones service in the military, we can arrange for the RSL or other service organisation to conduct a Poppy Service. This involves a suitable person giving a brief history of the persons military service and the laying of a symbolic red poppy on the coffin. We then play the Last Post, recite the Ode and then play Reveille. The coffin is covered with the Australian Flag during the service.
Order of Service Booklets Many families like to give those attending a funeral service a thankyou card, or provide a booklet with the order of the service and any songs or poems of significance. Some just provide a small handout with a few pictures for people to remember with. Many of the churches produce booklets for the family if the service is at the church. With modern home computers many family members can now produce booklets of a high quality then arrange for copies to be made at places like Officeworks. If you need help with producing a booklet we can put you in contact with a professional printer that works closely with us.
