Our History

The majority of great funeral homes experience an evolution over a period of time as they meet the changing needs of the communities which they serve. This has been the case with us at Grace Funerals.  Over 20 years Grace has evolved from Funerals of Care in Lawson, into Lady of Grace Funerals in Emu Plains and in 2012 the name was changed to simply, Grace Funerals. These changes occurred under the previous owners.  In 2013 The Dooley family became the owner/ operators and they have continued to build upon the work of their predecessors while introducing their unique touches.

Our Future:
We each recognise that change is a constant in life and the funeral industry is not immune from it. We are constantly monitoring the trends and innovations within our industry and we commit to ensuring that we remain relevant and contemporary.  We continually implement products and services that support our position as the leading and most creative funeral provider within Greater Western Sydney. This offers a clients the widest of choices.

However, there is one aspect of our service that will never change and that is the sincerity and quality of our care. While we wish to provide the best of the available services we never forget that the reason that you have engaged us is because you have lost someone whom you care deeply about and who has important place in your heart and life.

We are a proudly a two generation family business. We bring a unique perspective to funeral service that is a blend of those respective generations, combined with a depth of experience and experiences that few, if any, of our competitors can match.

Dear Asha and Team,

 

When my son suicided it was the darkest time of my life. Your care, love and compassion helped to carry us through. You seemed to know exactly what we wanted and everything was handled with understanding and delicacy.

 

The service was a perfect tribute to his remarkable life. Your ability to accommodate our unusual requests (people signing the coffin and posting photo’s on it) meant that Sean received the farewell that I am sure he would have wanted.

 

Thank you all so much.

It was such an emotional time for us but your professionalism and compassion helped enormously.

I haven’t been through this process before but it wasn’t upsetting as both Julie and Jo gave us such support and nothing was too much trouble.

I would definitely recommend Grace Funerals after our experience.

The team at Grace Funerals, especially Asha and Tom, are wonderful people to work with. They provided professional, compassionate guidance through the funeral planning process, and my dad’s service was exactly how we envisioned. I would recommend Grace Funerals to anybody who finds themselves in the unfortunate position of needing to plan a funeral.

The funeral service that you put together was absolutely perfect and was exactly what mum would have wanted. Please know that if I ever need a funeral director again you will be my first call.

Grace Funerals were professional, compassionate and showed immense understanding throughout the whole process of my grandmother’s funeral. They came highly recommended by our Bishop and entire church community – and know I know why! Their service was outstanding and they showed show much attention to detail. Asha went out of her way to make sure the funeral was as beautiful and memorable as our nan while also carefully considering our budget and highly unique needs. The facilities had a wonderful ambiance and the day felt intimate, warm and welcoming. We had several extenuating circumstances that could have proven extremely difficult and stressful but Asha and her team really took us by the hand and handled everything for us. We can’t thank you enough. I would never go anywhere else now! I can’t recommend you highly enough!
