Brunswick Memorial Home Receives National Recognition for Service Excellence


EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ -The Brunswick Memorial Home has just been honored by the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) with the 2016 Pursuit of Excellence Award.     Less than 1% of funeral homes in the US – and only 160 worldwide – earned this prestigious recognition, placing Brunswick Memorial among the most elite group of funeral service providers.   Pursuit of Excellence Award recipients raise the bar on funeral service excellence by adhering to the highest ethical and professional standards, and providing unsurpassed service to their client families and to their communities.


Owned and operated by the Kulbacki Family for more than 3 decades, the funeral home has consistently won local and national recognition for exemplary service.    To earn the Pursuit of Excellence, a funeral home must meet or exceed the standards set by the program and demonstrate an above average commitment to providing outstanding programs and resources to bereaved families; offering ongoing professional development opportunities for staff; maintaining an active level of support and involvement in the community, and adhere to a Pledge of Ethical Practices.  “Brunswick Memorial Home’s ongoing voluntary participation in the Pursuit of Excellence program reflects the clear determination of the Kulbacki Family to exceed the expectations of those they serve,” said NFDA Executive Director Christine Pepper, CAE.   “In fact, Brunswick Memorial Home was honored as “The Best of the Best”, one of the top three funeral homes in the country 2 years ago.  This prestigious recognition assures families and their community of the highest quality, compassionate service they will receive the moment they pick up the phone.   Brunswick Memorial sets the standard that other firms shoot for, and they are a pillar in their community.”


“While our primary motivation is to do everything we can to ease the burden on a grieving family, we take our civic and charitable responsibilities seriously as well” according to Peter Kulbacki, owner and manager.   “We are blessed to have a team that’s passionate in our work, and we do the things we do simply because we feel it’s the right way, the best for the family, not to receive honors.   But to then be recognized by our peers as being among the Best of the Best is a distinction our team relishes – it just makes everyone try that much harder.”

Brunswick Memorial Home was established nearly 35 years ago on what was the Kulbacki Family farm, and has grown to serve much of Central Jersey from their award winning facilities on Cranbury Road.    Serving all faiths, as their reputation has spread, the staff has grown to provide 24 hour service every day of the year, and is active with many community initiatives.


The Pursuit of Excellence Award will be formally presented at the National Funeral Directors Association annual convention in Philadelphia in October.
