Why Choose Us

Brett Funeral Home and Cremation Services has been serving St. Petersburg area families for years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.

A Family Tradition of Caring, Compassionate Service.

Our Tradition of service began in 1960 when Tom and Gail Brett founded Brett Funeral Home. Located in the center of St. Petersburg, the family business has been a fixture on Central Avenue for three generations.

After the death of Mr. Brett in 1977, his two sons, Timothy and Terrence took over operations of the business and continue in that capacity today. The founders grandson and namesake, Thomas J. Brett, has been with the family business for several years and represents our third generation. In an age of uncertainty and change, families can depend upon the Brett family and their tradition of service.


 

 

Celebration of Life Ceremonies

More and more families want to have meaningful and personal ceremonies. Ceremonies that celebrate a life well lived. We offer many options for families who want to make their loved one's ceremonies personal and more meaningful. Acknowledge and celebrate your loved one and bring healing to survivors.

Life Tribute Videos

We'll create a one-of-a-kind Tribute Video by combining family photographs, music of your choice, and professional effects to share your loved one's special journey during the service. This video also is available as a DVD and meaningful keepsake after the ceremony is over.

Digital Guestbook

Tribute eGuest is a new and improved way to record guests' names and addresses at your loved one's service. By having this information input digitally, we can help you print address labels for thank-you cards and more. We also use this information to help family and friends with aftercare, because grief doesn't stop with the funeral.
