Brenan’s Funeral Home, Saint John, NB

Earlier this month the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick added an online database of records from Brenan’s Funeral Home from 1901 to 1959.

The amount of information available varies, and is often sparse in the early years. Below is a record from mid-period. Note the mention of a notice in the Times and Telegraph. It would be nice if all funeral homes made their records similarly available.
