Traditional Funeral

A wake in the home or funeral home, people come to pay respects and sympathise with family members the coffin is taken to the church overnight where the funeral mass takes place the following day. The coffin can remain in the family home or funeral home after visitation has finished and be taken to the church the day of the funeral mass.

Non-religious service - this is a service, without any religious content, designed by the family with the assistance of a civil celebrant or Humanist celebrant. The service will usually consist of music, eulogies, poems and words or remembrance. This usually takes place in the funeral home.

Civil Service – many families want a service which combines elements of the two above - some religious content coupled with their own choices of music, speeches, poems and words of remembrance.

In all cases we will arrange for a suitable Celebrant who can facilitate, guide and assist with the ceremony.


Non Service Funerals

These are funerals that have no service. The deceased is taken directly for burial or cremation.


Committal Service

A committal service is conducted after a church service or funeral Mass The committal service lasts about 10 to 15 minutes and is conducted by a member of the clergy following a standard religious format.
