Over the 124 years our family has been serving Minnesota families, times and traditions have changed -- a lot. But from Gill Brothers’ early days in the Twin Cities funeral business -- the black crepe and horse-drawn hearses of the Victorian Era -- to the introduction of embalming and later cremation, we have always believed end-of-life rituals honor the dead and heal the living.
As part of the Minneapolis and St. Paul community for five generations, today we see a growing preference for making the connection between death and life more meaningful, simple and sustainable. We consider “green burial” a natural for Minnesotans, and would be honored to help you select funeral and memorial options that respect the environment -- and your family’s wishes.
