Serene Funeral Home

Funeral and Cremation Services

“With dignity, care and respect as every life is unique” 

Serene Funeral Home was founded in late 2016 by Barry Millward and Rodney Ambrose, each one of them bringing years of experience of personal care, professionalism, compassion and empathy into the work they do for bereaved families and friends.  Our team of funeral directors and staff have collectively, well over 50 years of funeral care experience.   It is our mission to facilitate meaningful ways for families to celebrate the memories of their loved ones and provide peace of mind during their loss.  We provide dignified, respectful and affordable burials and cremations by always striving to exceed the expectations of each family we serve. We believe our attention to detail and personal service sets us apart from other funeral service providers.

Our Funeral Directors are here to support and advise you at every stage, with uncompromising compassion, providing the highest standards of care, as every life is unique.

We provide services, on request, to nursing homes, retirement establishments, palliative care institutions, hospitals & emergency rooms, doctors, community and religious leaders, doctors, families and friends.

About Pre-Planning –  Without a doubt dying is one of the few events in life that one never wishes to talk about, but, we all have to consider. You may never marry, or have children; but one day you will leave this world. For most of us, this is a disquieting thought. Yet it is still something you should plan for – if not for your own peace-of-mind, then for the well-being of those you’ll leave behind, whether it is for you or your loved one(s).

When is the Best Time to Pre-Plan Your Funeral? – You may not be emotionally ready to take on this task. Perhaps the best time to begin making your prearrangements is when you have a family you wish to protect from the emotional and financial burdens they will carry when you leave them with no plan at all. By taking time now to collect relevant information and calmly making choices related to your own, or loved ones funeral arrangements, you’ll be protecting your family against the stress of having to make these decisions at a time of extreme emotional stress. This way you can carefully choose specific items you want and need… and pay for them in advance. 

Pre-Payment Options – There are a number of options available to the people today when seeking to preplan and prepay their final wishes. We can tailor a plan that’s right for you, designed to meet your budget concerns. Our staff will be pleased to outline the choices available.
