We define permutation modules and Young modules for the Brauer algebra B k (r,δ), and show that if the characteristic of the field k is neither 2 nor 3 then every permutation module is a sum of Young modules, respecting an ordering condition similar to that for symmetric groups. Moreover, we determine precisely in which cases cell module filtration multiplicities are well-defined, as done by Hemmer and Nakano for symmetric groups.
