In our care
1. Get in touch
If you’ve been tasked with handling funeral arrangements, feel free to contact us at any time to support you. As soon as we become involved, we can guide you patiently through the arrangement process even if this is your first time or the death was unexpected. You can reach out to us by calling 1300 011 725.
2. Cremation or burial
This is a very personal choice that may be influenced by factors like religious beliefs, stated preferences and family traditions. For clarification, cremation is the process in which the deceased, their casket or coffin, floral tributes and any personal effects placed with the deceased are incinerated by the way of a cremator. Burial involves the internment of remains either in the earth or above ground in a mausoleum or crypt. If this choice has not clearly been made in advance, our team can help you weigh the options and make an informed decision.
3. Adding meaning

Music at the funeral
Music can say so much, especially when emotions make it hard for us to speak. At Generation Funerals, we can work with you to compile a playlist of songs from our extensive library or your own collection for use during the funeral. If live music seems the best fit for the event, we can arrange that with your guidance as well.
Our in-house team of professional designers can design and produce a suite of stationery inspired by your loved one as a keepsake for those in attendance at the funeral or memorial.
Orders of service
With a personalised order of service, attendees are offered a lasting and comforting memory of the departed. This can also be sent to mourners who were unable to attend to give them a sense of being part of the process as well.
A personalised Memorial Attendance Book can. use thoughtful quotations and imagery that reflect the character of the deceased and inspire mourners to sign and share their sentiments as a community.
Thank you cards
A short, thoughtful thank-you card can express the deep gratitude you feel for those who have been helpful in your grief or involved in the life of your late loved one.
