In our care – At your service

At Generation Funerals, we recognise that a funeral is an important way for families and communities to celebrate the life, culture and interests of those we have loved.

Assisting your family with arranging a funeral, requires the input of a team of caring, creative and professional staff and often involves many days of preparation and planning, as well as several hours of involvement from a number of staff on the day of the funeral itself.

We are committed to guiding you through this difficult time and trust our service and care meets your expectations of us. Whether it be pre planning, pre payment or at need, we are always here for you and your family.

In order to provide you with the best advice possible and ensure that a funeral meets your individual needs and family requirements, we strongly recommend that you discuss your funeral needs with one of our professionally trained staff.

This can be achieved by meeting with one of our caring Professional Funeral Planners, at one of our conveniently located offices or in your home with no obligation or cost. Telephone our Funeral Advice Line: 1300 011 725

What others say about us

Thank you is not a big enough word to show my appreciation of everything you did for Peter’s funeral. You went above and beyond in helping us to personalise Peter’s funeral service. Your attention to detail did not go unnoticed – the positioning of the cap and jacket on the coffin, the stickers on the DVDs, the St George Players song. You really listened and understood who Peter was, and what was important to the family. The time and effort that you put into getting the DVD images and songs right was much appreciated, as was finding suitable rocks for displaying Peter’s boots. The funeral was an accurate representation of Peter and his tastes, a real celebration of his Life. Thank you again for turning a difficult situation into a beautiful memory for us. – Judith and Vanessa

What others say about us

Thank you for your work arranging my Dads funeral. Penny’s data gathering and the funeral programme and DVD planning were made easy and flexible for us. Especially as everything is on a short lead time. The funeral programme and the DVD were beyond my expectation. I enjoyed the funeral programme photos, they reflected my dad and reflected him well. Everything went smoothly. Fond memories of a job well executed make a great day of that which is a sad time. I was proud of my dad’s farewell. Thank you – Bruce
