Planning a Funeral

 Time is short and emotions are high. Decisions must be made quickly and your family may not know what you want -

  • Deciding on burial or cremation

  • Deciding on an open or closed coffin or casket

  • Selecting a coffin or casket

  • Deciding whether you require a service to be held If so, when and where the service will be held

  • Organising to have the involvement of a specific organisation or club in the service, if required

  • Selecting special readings, poems, music selections, or photo tributes to be part of the service.

  • Choosing clothing for the deceased to be dressed in

  • Organising if there will be refreshments following the service

Let us Help and Guide you.

We Suggest you follow these five steps.


Step 1 - 

Once your loved one has passed, take the time to say your goodbyes. Phone (03) 8689 0062 and our consultant - usually a lady - will give you a call to organise transfers. From here, a time will be organised for her to come and visit you. She will listen to your wishes, explain the process and can make any immediate arrangements that are needed.

Step 2 - 

Together, we can plan a suitable funeral, bearing in mind religious or other wishes.

Step 3 - 

Together, we will set a budget for the whole process. Eternity provides a dignified funeral as you would expect - but usually at around half the cost of the big funeral directors.

Step 4 - 

Once you approve, we will take care of the arrangements in line with your wishes, and you can be secure that there will be no hidden costs.

Step 5 - 

The funeral will be held as you wish. We provide a smooth, compassionate service and you will always be in safe hands.​
