40 Years’ Experience

Newhaven Funerals started 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 at more affordable costs, he and his family started their own funeral home.

Today, we are one of the most recognisable and trusted funeral homes in South East Queensland. We firmly believe that it will be the smallest detail that makes the biggest difference. That’s 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.

Funeral Directors & Staff

Each and every member of the Newhaven Funerals team has undergone a strict hiring process and background check before joining. This ensures 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 special requests, such as if you would like to scatter ashes at an ocean funeral or utilise some of our expert third party providers to make the event even more unique and personal. We are always happy to help.

We Provide
Ongoing Care

We genuinely care about our clients. Leading up to, during and 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 understand the trauma they are experiencing. We can easily connect those who are struggling with their loss to respected counsellors. Our team also conducts grief recovery programs. It is important that your funeral director understands your requirements, as well as your sentiments. We can provide exceedingly superior levels of care that would be beyond your expectations.

Our priority, at all times, is to make sure that all your queries are answered in a timely manner, and everything is comprehensively explained to avoid complications and confusions. With such ease and convenience, you can concentrate on spending time with your family and the rest will be taken care of by us.

Tim Connolly

Growing up around funerals since the age of six allowed Tim a unique understanding of how a family-owned funeral business should be.

He has seen his mum and dad, Denise and Phil Connolly, grow from a small commercial unit at West End in Brisbane to a well-known, national public company.

The business has since reverted to a smaller business under the name Newhaven Funerals, which provides more personal and meaningful funeral services.

Since leaving school in 1992, Tim has been deeply involved in all aspects of operating their family-owned business, including operating crematoriums, memorial gardens, and our pet cremation business. Tim is more than competent to assist all clients with any request.

Now married with two children, Tim’s personal time is spent with family, friends, and the community.
