About

Since 1938, Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre has provided funeral and cremation services to our neighbours in the Kenora District.

Welcoming funeral home

Our warm and welcoming funeral home is located on 2nd Street South, just minutes from Lake of the Woods, and 2 blocks east of Main Street. We appreciate the diverse population of Kenora and welcome people of all faiths and cultural backgrounds, including Ukrainians, Scandinavians, Scottish, English, Germans, Greeks, Poles and Filipinos, as well as numerous First Nations communities.

Personable and memorable funeral services

We know losing a loved one is hard, and we're here to guide you through planning a funeral or memorial every step of the way. Our goal with every service is to leave an indelible mark of a life well lived. Our commitment is to bring your vision or your loved one's final wishes to reality.

We offer everything from a traditional funeral service at a church, graveside or elsewhere, to a no-holds-barred celebration of life, complete with live music, catering and a heart-warming send-off that reflects the passions of yourself or your loved one.

From finding just the right decor to ordering personalized mementos, we go the extra mile to capture the unique essence of every individual.

A trusted friend and neighbour

As a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre gives you not only the familiar attention you expect from a locally operated funeral home but also the value and quality assurance you deserve by way of a network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers.

We are here for you day or night. Please call us for immediate assistance planning a funeral or to find out more about our funeral, burial and cremation services.

History

Founder A.M. “Sandy” Brown established Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre in 1938. He ran the business until his retirement in 1966, when he turned it over to his daughter, Heather, and son-in-law, Paul Kitt.

In 1983, Paul and Heather retired and moved to Sioux Narrows after selling the funeral home. In 2006, Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre became a member of the Dignity Memorial network. Today, we serve an area of 12,000 square miles, providing funeral, burial and cremation services to approximately 25,000 residents.
