First steps after your loss
Your first step should be to contact a funeral director. They can help your family organise the death certificate, then take the deceased into their care and help begin arrangements for the funeral.
While there are plenty of funeral directors to choose from, it’s important to select one you and your family feel comfortable with, as they will be helping you make important decisions in arranging the service.
At Andrew Kennedy, we pride ourselves on treating your loved on like a cherished member of our family, with our funeral directors working locally, which keeps your loved one in the community, close to family and friends.
Dealing with grief
Our ongoing Bereavement Care Program, delivered by our Grief Support Team, is available to all families who need help adjusting to their loss. Please call us any time to organise a chat.
We’re able to provide a wide range of beautiful flower arrangements to best match the atmosphere of your service and personality of your loved one.
We have a beautiful fleet of traditional vehicles available for your use, and can also organise less traditional transport if you feel that would better reflect your loved one’s personality.
We've proudly serviced families from most religious groups, working closely with them to ensure their traditions and customs are respectfully upheld.
Whether you choose a burial or cremation, we’re able to help explain the different options and cost between the two and liaise on your behalf with the cemetery or crematorium of your choice.
We’re able to offer families the use of modern audio-visual equipment, including webcast capabilities so overseas family and friends can still view the funeral.
Use of our venue includes tea and coffee, cool drinks and biscuits. We are of course more than happy for you to bring your own additional catering.
