Brisbane Funeral Chapel

Brisbane has some beautiful funeral service venue settings to provide a uniquely honouring and befitting farewell. Swanborough Funerals offer a wide range of Brisbane Funeral Chapel alternatives to the traditional crematorium chapel facilities. Most crematorium chapel services are booked per hour with the expectation that the funeral service will take half an hour giving the next funeral service time to set up. The catering at most crematorium chapels is booked in for a 45 minute time slot.

Swanborough Funerals have sourced some beautiful alternative funeral chapel and garden funeral service options in and around Brisbane, without the time constrictions associated with the traditional commercial crematorium chapels and a wider range of catering alternatives.

We believe in tailoring a funeral to suit the needs, the time frame of the family and reflect the essence of their loved one.
