Our locations have been selected for their convenience and they have been designed to reflect our approach to modern funeral service.
For some people the funeral ritual might seem outdated and unnecessary. There are many reasons why for your immediate and future grief that emotionally family and friends need to have a public goodbye for their loved one.
When a death occurs the order of the things is dependent on where a death occurs. The below attachments explain this in detail. We are available 24 hours to provide assistance and support
At the time of a loss, bringing family and friends together is common and companionship is important at these times. Our role is to advise you of all of your options and together design and deliver a personalised service that reflect and honour the life and this will commence the healing. Your choice of service is only limited by imagination.
Selecting the correct venue is crucial for a beautiful, simple farewell. We will help you use existing venues or source a new venue based on what your preferences are. We use both traditional venues such as churches and alternative venues such as golf clubs and your own backyard.
We will work with you to select the flowers and coffin or casket that will best represent your loved one, the funeral service and will be within your budget. All of our flowers can be personalised for you. Our Australian manufactured coffins and caskets are of the highest quality and offer both traditional and contemporary options.

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
“Not only were you all very patient but showed compassion in this difficult time. Tom we thank you and all your wonderful staff. The women looked so beautiful on the day and we were all touched at how everything fell into place. We think Dad would have been honoured.“
“Your professionalism, graciousness, love, comfort & support show to us at this most difficult time of losing our beautiful mother will never be forgotten. Every detail was handled with perfection, everything was very well co-ordinated in a very tight timeframe.”
“Words cannot express our thanks and gratitude to you and the staff at Grace Funerals. You kindness and assistance made the day a beautiful memory for us to reflect back on.“
“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!
The family send our appreciation for the beautiful funeral service organized for our dear Mother. You worked seamlessly in the background so that everything ran smoothly and she had the best send off possible.
The team at Grace funerals helped us through the difficult time with the sudden death of our son. They were patient, caring and professional. The fee was reasonable. A great support helping us through this journey.
