Celebrate a Life Well Lived
For thousands of years, people have been holding funeral services to formally say goodbye. A funeral fills several purposes. It is a tribute to honour a special life - an opportunity to celebrate the experiences, accomplishments, hobbies, heritage and history of a unique and irreplaceable personality. For many, a meaningful service is an important part of the healing process. It also helps console the immediate family, the people who often feel the loss most deeply. A funeral service can be part of your final arrangements, whether burial or cremation is chosen.
More Than Just Goodbye
Traditional or contemporary, the funeral service can be tailored to your faith, taste and budget. Whether planning for yourself or a loved one, our professionals will help you design a memorial service as unique as the person being honoured.
Traditionally, there is a visitation period before the service for friends and family to express their love, support, and concern. We offer access to quiet visitation rooms that provide a peaceful atmosphere for your visitation period.
Planning a Service and Reception
Scott Funeral Home - Brampton features a beautifully appointed chapels that seats 200. But you don’t have to plan a conventional, clergy-led service. Today, the opportunity to honour your loved one reaches far beyond the classic readings and a eulogy. Whether it’s showcasing dad’s prized motorcycle collection or serving cookies baked from grandmother’s famous recipe, discuss your ideas with us. The possibilities are endless.
As you personalize the funeral, some things to consider include:

After the funeral, a reception is a time for family and friends to reflect, laugh, and cry together over refreshments or a meal. We offer a large reception room, along with a lounge for more intimate gatherings, and full catering services.
