It is a sad fact that many in the funeral industry have unnecessary mark-ups on their services. We see this as abhorrent exploitation of people’s grief and will never unnecessarily increase our prices.

Rather, we pride ourselves on our integrity and choose to conduct our business in a manner which is dignified and respectful to all those involved. With that in mind, we offer 100% transparency on our fees and will not surprise you with any unexpected costs.  We guarantee not to lower our quality to charge you less because we know that everyone deserves the best quality products and services right to the very end.

We at Whitsunday Funerals try our best to source all services we supply locally and by other small businesses.
