Saying goodbye to a loved one is a special occasion and can be a difficult and overwhelming experience. The first step to planning a funeral is to contact us on our website or give us a call. With over 50 years experience, we can help guide you through the process and ensure you plan a memorable service for your loved one.

When you have made contact with us, we can help you through some key decisions that need to be made, and answer any questions you may have about the process.

I just wanted to pass on my thanks again for being so accommodating with our wishes and doing such a lovely service for my dad’s funeral.
We had such great comments on how lovely the service was and how fabulous the celebrant Bruce was.
We were so pleased with how it went. Thank you again.


Your whole approach was just perfect. We all appreciated the sensitive manner with which you managed the ceremony. Again, thank you.

Edna, Sue, and John

We wish to thank you once again for all your help with the service for our twins. Your compassion and responsiveness during the planning, and the kind words you spoke on the day helped us significantly during a very difficult time for Paul and I.


A big thank you to you and your team for your support, care and attention to detail in a ‘no fuss’ supportive manner. We are all so happy about Dad’s funeral day. Our celebration at home in the evening was also a special tribute to Dad.
We felt prepared and supported by your team and we have some very special, fond memories of the day. Thanks to you and your team.
