Our Story

Newhaven Funerals opened back in 1979 after the Connolly family tragically lost a child. Phil Connolly watched in dismay at the “mechanical” and “routine” funeral service conducted—as well as the unexplained expenses affixed to the account at the end of the service. Knowing there had to be a better, more compassionate way of providing services with more affordable funeral costs, he and the family started their own funeral home. Today, we are one of the most recognisable and trusted funeral homes in Brisbane. We firmly believe that it’s the smallest details that make the biggest difference, which is why we all go the extra mile to honour and celebrate the life of a loved one, as well as offer a warm and friendly service to the bereaved.

The Newhaven Funerals Difference


Dedicated Team of Professionals

Each and every member of the Newhaven Funerals family has undergone a strict hiring process and background check before joining the team. This assures you that you always speak to a true professional who has the knowledge and experience to attend to your needs during this difficult period. We highly encourage clients to approach any member of our team if you have any special requests, such as if you would like to scatter ashes on an ocean funeral or the like. We are always more than happy to help.

More Than Just Funerals

We genuinely care about our clients. After the funeral, we go out of our way to keep in touch with the bereaved until we are sure they have been able to accept and move on from the trauma. We can easily connect those who are struggling with their loss to a respected counsellor. Our team also conducts grief recovery programs.

A Name You Can Trust

Clients trust us wholeheartedly thanks to our track record of exceptional and empathetic service. Similarly, many clients trust us because of our long-standing reputation within the local and national industry. We are proud to be a member of both the National Funeral Directors Association of Australia and the Queensland Cemeteries and Crematoria Association.
