Our story

Whitsunday Funerals and Crematorium is the only family owned funeral home in the Whitsunday area and comprises of reputable funeral homes based in Mackay, Proserpine and Bowen. We have over 25 years of experience helping thousands of families say goodbye to their loved ones and have really grown to understand a variety of needs and wants at this delicate time. In everything we do, we make sure that your loved ones are genuinely taken care of properly, with the utmost respect, dignity and compassion.

Whitsunday Funerals and Crematorium was born after one of our directors, Jeff Boyle, was introduced to the industry with an opportunity to help a friend transport a deceased person for a funeral company.

Seeing a need for more professionalism and attention to detail in the industry, Jeff and Judy were enthusiastic to start Funeral Transfer Services Australia in 1998, with the generous guidance and mentorship of someone within the industry. Not surprisingly, the business took off due to high demand. And Jeff and Judy applied their innovative minds to the additional inclusions that demonstrated utmost care and recognition for the deceased and their families. The business was a standout because of the extra lengths that they went to, not just for processes and contamination procedures but for the dignity and respect of the one passed away.

Within a year, the business was operating a fleet of four and had the opportunity to buy out Sydney Mortuary Transfers, which saw them gain another two vehicles and a robust three year contract.

It wasn’t long before Funeral Transfer Services Australia become the largest and most sought after company and 2001 saw us owning eight refrigerated vehicles with newly designed lifting decks, enabling us to carry four deceased at a time.

After Jeff suffered a heart attack in 2010, it was time to move into a venture that gave the family an opportunity to really connect with their clients and local community. So, Whitsunday Funerals and Crematorium was bought and has continued to thrive under Jeff and Judy’s leadership ever since.

Jeff and Judy Boyle’s family funeral homes are local families caring for other locals at their time of greatest need.
