About Us.

Only locally owned funeral home on the Coast
Our philosophy on funeral care is simple; “Whatever needs doing we are there for you”. We are there to support you and journey with you through the funeral process.

We provide total support.
Our goal of ‘total care’ stems from a genuine desire to help and provide complete support for the bereaved family, eliminating as much of the stress as possible and beyond (through our free bereavement support services). Whenever you phone, whatever the time, a staff member will be available to answer your call.

Is Embalming Green?

We understand the legal requirements and provide the options.

The topic of Natural Funerals covers a wide range of issues from the full “natural burials”,
in special burial grounds, to simple choices throughout the funeral process that minimise the environmental impact and carbon footprint.
One thing to consider is Deceased Preparations
There are many preparation options available that minimise the harmful effects of chemicals on the environment.
Simply doing nothing to the deceased does not rid the body of harmful toxins in the body or the chemicals induced through medications during the later stages of illness.
