What Does a Funeral Director Do?

Hearse

Unless you have had a long illness in the family, planning a funeral is often the last thing on your mind.

Dealing with the death of a loved one is not easy, yet somehow you must manage the strength to plan an appropriate farewell that honours their life.

Brisbane funeral directors Newhaven Funerals, can step in to help you during this difficult time. Our job is to make things easier for you when you need it the most.

Support When You Need It

Funeral directors are empathic and know that coping with death is difficult. Part of our role is to offer a comprehensive service that includes organisation, support and guidance for the family.

We serve as a liaison with other organisations to ensure the funeral goes according to plan.

Help from the Start

A funeral director will be there to talk about your requirements and organise the funeral according to your instructions. They will offer you a large selection of coffins and caskets to suit your budget and wishes. They will make the necessary arrangements to transport the deceased to the funeral home or they can offer assistance if you wish them to remain at home before the service. They will offer their expertise to deal with the necessary paperwork. If you wish to do so, they will place death notices in local newspapers and online.

A Loving Farewell

Newhaven funerals will work hard to make the necessary funeral arrangements according to the family’s wishes. If you have any special musical requests or wish to say a tribute, we will ensure this is included in the service. We will also organise the funeral vehicles and catering in the venue of your choice after the funeral. Funeral directors take care of every detail, including ordering and accepting floral tributes and accepting donations for your nominated charity if you’d prefer.

After the funeral, we will send obituary cards to those who assisted to the funeral. If necessary, we will enable you to scatter the ashes or transport the remains to another state or to repatriate them overseas.

As you can see, the role of a funeral director encompasses many services and we also offer support and guidance.

If you wish to arrange a funeral plan and discuss options for your own funeral, we will help ensure everything goes ahead according to your wishes.

As part of Newhaven Funerals service, a qualified grief counsellor can be arranged for you and you will have access to a grief library.
