Thoughtful and Caring
Whitsunday Funerals and Crematorium is a family owned business with over 20 years experience. We work with people who want their loved ones taken care of properly – with dignity, respect and compassion.
We ensure your loved one is cared for at all times, and we work with you through the entire process to create a meaningful tribute for your loved one.
We offer both funeral and memorial services along with the essentials for a worry free ceremony. Our base packages are nearly always customised to suit your requirements.
Our state of the art low volume cremator ensures you receive your loved one’s ashes unmixed with those of other souls, and enables you to be present throughout.
In addition to funerals and cremation, we also offer embalming and reconstruction, refrigerated transfers, overseas repatration, civil celebrants, video presentations and anything else we can do to make your life easier.
Not sure where to start? We can help
We know just how difficult this time can be, with grief and other emotions clouding your ability to attend to personal affairs, with the added stress of arranging the funeral service – the overwhelming sense of … ‘What should I do now?’
We will do everything we can to help you at this stressful time, e.g. visiting you at your location, honouring your loved one’s desires and helping you to get your priorities straight.
You will find basic information here on where you can start, but we can provide more extensive assistance when you contact us.
“The staff are such lovely people and happy to help & offer advice (even prior to being needed), they make the family comfortable, feel welcome and do everything to make the passing of a loved one an easy transition”
– Noella Brickell Dobbins, via Facebook.
There’s no such thing as a “normal” funeral, it’s whatever your family wants.
Whitsunday Funerals & Crematorium are here for you when you need us most. It is a very hard thing to lose someone you love, but when that day comes you will want everything to be done right.
At Whitsunday Funerals and Crematorium, every viewing, service, and cremation is unique. We will help you achieve your individual requirements. Our staff will request information as to your cultural and spiritual needs such as all-night vigils, prayers, ritual body preparation, and family attendance.
At all times, your loved one will be granted the utmost respect and dignity, according to your wishes. Please give us a ring to discuss your needs in more detail. You may be surprised at how much we can help you.
“Our family has always used Whitsunday Funerals and will continue to when needed. Casey and the staff are always nice and comforting and always do more than the norms! In our culture we do a open casket service usually overnight till burial and in many cases Casey has let us do this! Casey is very professional and willing to work with our many requests! Highly recommended. – Nuka Savelio, via Facebook
Our family believes
That there is no such thing as a normal funeral service, or place where it is held, the decision is yours, as it is your loved one that we are caring for.
No matter which family member, Jeff and Judy in Proserpine, Casey and Peter in Bowen or Tiff & Kiera in Mackay, you’ll find the same level of professionalism and understanding that only a genuine Whitsunday family can provide.
Us being a genuine local family funeral home ensures your talking to one of our family and not a call centre. We know if it’s raining or a beautiful summers day because we live here too.
