About us

We are a recently established family funeral service. Richie's ‘calling' initiated the insight, the care and compassion that we as his family have supported and helped him in. Due to this, we have taken a ‘bigger step' to owning, operating and providing funeral services.

As parents we have encouraged our children to find their ‘purpose' in life. We believe that as a family together with our children's spouses, their help and assistance gives respect to each other's skills and talents. We trust that your family will share the experience of our family's prior learning and the scope to how we work together, to help other families especially at a time of need.
