Funeral services which respect the individual in Crans-Montana
In 1955, at the instigation of Monsieur Louis Barras, a funeral services business was set up in the region of the "Noble et Louable Contrée".
It then became a limited company and saw a major expansion. Today the company, Pompes-Funèbres Barras SA, is managed by Monsieur William Barras, who is active in a number of organisations such as Arts et Métiers de Crans-Montana, the Union Valaisanne des Arts et Métiers, the golf club, the tourism office, etc.
Company headquarters are located in the district of Chermignon in Crans-Montana, at Chalet la Baraka. Given its location, Barras SA is a local funeral services business which means it can be in contact with a family quickly and at any time.
It has the advantage of a fully trained staff. At any time, whenever the family needs, staff from Pompes-Funèbres Barras SA can come and sort out any issue that might present itself, and in complete confidence.
The business attaches great importance to building up a network of support for families who have been bereaved.
The openness of spirit at Barras SA only makes sense when it is matched by respect, availability and humanity, all qualities which are fundamental to our profession.
Pompes-Funèbres Barras SA talks more about individuals than customers because M. Barras and his team have themselves experienced grief at the loss of a loved one. That is why they wage a constant war against their work becoming routine, so that their feelings of understanding, support and empathy are maintained.
