What to do when someone dies

A family member or medical practitioner will need to notify a funeral director for transportation of the deceased. Department of Health regulations require this to take place as soon as possible—that’s why we offer a 24-hour service.

If you are the executor of a will or next of kin, you will need to consider the following:

  • The existence of any insurances, superannuation, pre-paid funeral arrangements or a burial plot
  • Notifying the bank
  • The departed’s wishes in relation to funeral arrangements.

You can rely on us to handle all your arrangements.

What we do

We handle all of the legalities, advise you of your options and manage all practical aspects associated with organising a funeral.

We will take care of the following:

  • Transportation & preparation of the body
  • Collection of medical certificate
  • Registration of the death
  • Preparation of the body
  • Viewing for immediate family members & friends
  • Death notices on behalf of the family
  • Funeral arrangements including flowers & audiovisual equipment
  • Graveside & headstone
  • Cremation (if required)

Some people choose to have a viewing so immediate family and close friends have private time alone with or without an open casket, (depending on the circumstances or personal wishes). This is an opportunity to come to terms with your loss and say goodbye.


Generally, at a funeral the casket is present. On the request of the family, the casket can be open or closed. If you have religious affiliations you may wish to ask your minister or clergyman to conduct the ceremony at your local church. Alternatively, we have a quiet chapel which you are welcome to use.

Memorial service

A memorial service is usually held when the body isn’t present. In place of the casket, the family can use a large photo or urn as the focal point. Memorial services can be held at a favourite beach before sunrise or a local park.

Graveside or Cremation

if you would prefer not to have a funeral service, as a family you can opt for a committal service at the graveside or at the crematorium.
