As a leader in the Queensland community, we strive to provide the greatest flexibility in funeral services, catering for the real needs of an ever-changing community.

Metropolitan Funerals prides itself on the quality, respect and personal attention given to each funeral. We recognise that every family and funeral service is unique, and we remain dedicated to honouring your loved one, comforting you and your families, and respecting your personal requests.

Our History

Metropolitan Funerals was created in 1941 by Richard Brazier and his family. That means we have been serving Queensland for 75 years.

We were the first company to expand into the suburbs of Brisbane, with our first Metropolitan funeral home established in Fortitude Valley, which served as the main premises until the mid-1980s. In addition to the Valley, we established funeral homes in Mt Gravatt and Aspley in the early 1970s.

Over the years we continued to grow and now offer our services from 9 locations.

We have had the privilege of serving many Heads of State, members of the arts and entertainment worlds, and families from all walks of life that have needed our assistance.
