At Browne Brothers Funerals we are proud to offer dignified and high quality funerals at an affordable price. We are able to maintain our reasonable prices through our use of existing chapels throughout the Melbourne area.
At Browne Brothers funeral homes, we pride ourselves in ensuring families receive a unique level of personalised care offered by our experienced and friendly team of funeral directors. Our helpful and friendly team can discuss your needs and help you choose the best option for your family and loved one.
We are available 24/7 to take you through options in the comfort of your own home, helping reduce the burden on your family at this difficult time. As the cost of a funeral can significantly vary, our caring funeral directors will take you through all your options, from burial or cremation to a church or chapel service or no service at all.
Our aim is to reduce the burden to you and your family at what is already a difficult time. This is why we have processes in place to ensure personal wishes are carried out in a way that is respectful and affordable, providing value for your money.
Our Browne Brothers Chapel is onsite at 305 Warrigal Rd, Cheltenham. This newly renovated and stylish chapel sits 60 comfortably and has a lounge for gathering. Alternatively, we have relationships with other churches, chapels, cemeteries and memorial parks all over Melbourne, so the funeral can be near your home.
Our Funeral Services
We offer a wide range of burial services to suit your budget and personal wishes. Part of any burial service is choosing a coffin for your loved one to be buried in, which is an emotional and important decision. This is why we have a wide selection of cheap coffins and caskets for you to choose from.
