Brandon's Only Crematorium
Brockie Donovan owns and operates the only crematorium in Brandon, located at our cemetery, Rosewood Memorial Gardens. Families we serve can be assured their loved one never leaves our care and will be treated with dignity and the utmost respect.
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.
Independent Lunch Room Facilities
Our reception area is separate from the main chapel, but located in the funeral home.
Life Tributes ..."Let us show you how pictures that haven't been touched in 25 years can touch an entire room."
Brandon's Only Grief Resource Library
A lending library stocked with books, pamphlets, and resources on bereavement and related topics.
Complimentary Grief Seminars
We are proud to offer free grief and loss seminars with Counsellor Shelley Wray on an on-going basis.
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.
Our On-going Community Support and Events
We are grateful for the support of the people in our community and are proud to participate fully in making Brandon and area a better place to live for everyone. In that spirit, we are proud to offer community events, such as our Gossip in the Graveyard Fundraising Tours, our Annual Mother's Day Rose Tribute, our Annual Tree of Memories Candlelight Memorial Service, our Brandon & Westman Caregiver Award, and our Senior's Care Legacy Fund.
