Call Brugger Funeral Homes

Call Brugger Funeral Homes & Crematory immediately at (814)-864-4864 or (814)-825-2500 anytime of the day or night. Typically, it is not necessary to contact an out of state or out of the country funeral director. By contacting us first we will contact one of our many agents throughout the United States or world to assist us  in transporting your loved one back to the Erie area. This method saves your family money as we have negotiated prices with firms in our funeral director network versus calling a funeral home on your own. You will then be asked to provide us with basic information for your loved one so that the funeral home out of town can properly prepare death certificates and burial permits. Upon arrival in our area we will go over the final details as they relate to funeral services for the deceased.
