Do you offer Chinese specific funeral services and what do they entail?

Yes, we customise our funeral services to accommodate your special religious and cultural requests. We have the only Asian Hall that’s dedicated to Chinese style funeral services. Also, in keeping with all Chinese religions and customs the viewing of the loved one is important and a major part of the service for families and friends to pay their last respects. Our funeral directors will liaise with the family in arranging the clothes they may wish to use to dress their loved one. In many cases, we also help to include other pieces of clothing to be placed in the coffin, as it is with Chinese custom. To learn more, please contact us at 03 8587 5888.
