Vancouver, BC, August 26, 2013 — Martin Brothers Funeral Services has opened a first of its kind Funeral Arrangement Centre on Vancouver’s West Side. Seeing a lack of funeral service providers in the area, Dale Martin Jr., President of Martin Brothers Funeral Services decided to bring his family’s 107 years of experience in the industry to Vancouver. Dale Martin Jr. says, “Funeral planning can be overwhelming, no matter the age of the person who dies, or the experience of the family. We are here to assist with every detail, in order to make the family’s experience as memorable and special as possible.” Martin Brothers Funeral Services’ location, at Dunbar and West 18th, has a serene, spa-like atmosphere, where families can come at their time of need, or even before someone has died, to plan a funeral or memorial that best suits the individual and the family. Unique to Martin Brothers Funeral Services is the “Ceremony at Sea” option. Following a traditional funeral or a memorial service, Martin Brothers can arrange a family cruise on their motor yacht, “Pacific Ceremony”, which can simply be a time of family gathering, or a time to venture out into English Bay to scatter a loved one’s cremated remains at sea. Martin Brothers marks the exact spot where this takes place and the family is presented with a permanent plaque that shows them where their loved one was committed to the sea. Dale Martin Jr. says, “This is a very special time for families, and my staff and I recognize the significance of the event.” Martin Brothers Funeral Services invites the media to our Grand Opening Event from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at our Dunbar location, 3398 Dunbar Street, Vancouver. Drop in to meet Dale Martin Jr. and his staff, and to see the beautiful facility.
