DANNY Shittu's own goal settled a thrilling London derby at The Den in which Millwall had fought back to level terms after going 2-0 down.
Andre Gray scored either side of half time to put the Bees in command but Lee Gregory bundled in Shittu's header before Alan Dunne equalised with a 20-yard drive.
But Gray's cross was deflected over the line by Shittu, under pressure from Harlee Dean, to make it 3-2 and the visitors held on to claim a third straight victory.
Millwall marked Remembrance weekend by playing in a special camouflage kit but they could not cap the occasion with a positive result, despite a flurry of late chances.
Magaye Gueye was handed his first league start for Millwall in one of four changes to the team made by manager Ian Holloway.
Dunne, Richard Chaplow and Gregory also came into the side, with Ed Upson, Scott McDonald and Martyn Woolford dropping to the bench.
A moving minute's silence was observed before kick off as the two teams formed a guard of honour for personnel from Headley Court.
Once the game got underway, Lee Martin, playing as the no.10, skewed a shot well wide of the target after being teed up by Gregory.
Brentford, who had 60% of the possession in the first half, had their first effort on goal when Moses Odubajo curled wide from 20 yards.
Millwall were sloppy with the ball but they carved out a decent opportunity in the 10th minute as Ricardo Fuller set up Gueye, whose shot deflected behind.
The visitors counter-attacked from the corner but Romallo Jota wastefully blazed over when he had better options waiting for a pass to his left and right.
Gray then dragged wide after Matthew Briggs gave the ball away before Fuller headed over from the full back's cross at the other end.
In the 39th minute, another Briggs centre was flicked goalwards by Martin but David Button saved well in the Bees goal.
And his side took the lead when the lively Alex Pritchard slipped a pass through to Gray, who finished between David Forde's legs.
The duo combined again after the restart when Gueye's wayward pass found Pritchard and Gray dispatched his through ball with aplomb.
But Millwall were back in it when Button failed to deal with Shittu's towering header and Gregory seemed to get the final touch as the ball crossed the line.
And 60 seconds later, Dunne was encouraged to shoot on the edge of the box and his low drive found the bottom corner to make it 2-2.
Gregory then hit the bar with a free header from Briggs' cross as Millwall, back on level terms, sensed they could grab a winner.
They were instead hit with a sucker punch as Gray found space inside the box and Shittu could not prevent his cross from deflecting into the net.
Substitute Mathias Ranegie was denied by Button in the 69th minute before the keeper got down well to parry Fuller's drive across goal.
Gregory then shot over from the inside the box as Brentford weathered a spell of heavy pressure.
They could have added a fourth goal when Gray rounded Forde but his pull-back rolled harmlessly across goal.
Dunne glanced wide from Martin's free kick and Ranegie nodded harmlessly at Button as Millwall failed to capitalise on two headed chances.
In the final minute, a high ball dropped to Ranegie but the Watford loanee couldn't control his shot and blazed his effort into the stands.
