No matter who you choose to arrange the funeral service, getting help from competent and compassionate funeral professionals will provide you peace of mind, so you can also take care of yourself and gather your strength as you enter this new chapter in life.
Our experienced Funeral Directors bring to each funeral service – care, compassion and understanding. We take pride in providing services to people of all faiths and traditions.
Rest assured we will take care of the entire process so you can focus on your family and remembering your loved ones.
How someone is laid to rest is often a personal and in many cases spiritual decision.
In many ways the choice for burial or cremation is the most important decision in determining how to honor your loved one. It can also have a significant bearing on the cost of a funeral.
We can explain the options and differences in cost and help you with your decision. We will then work with the cemetery or crematorium of your choice.
Chapels are typically the most economical, traditional and intimate environment to farewell your loved one.
Our Chapels are located in four locations throughout Sydney, the Central Coast and the Northern Tablelands, each one delicately furnished with traditional decor providing a warm and caring atmosphere to remember and farewell.
In addition to our traditional funeral vehicles we offer alternative specialist vehicles to suit every taste.
We offer horse drawn carriage with 2 black stallions, or a Harley Davidson with side carriage for the motor cycle enthusiast.
These vehicles are available upon request, please feel free to contact us anytime to discuss further.
We know that the flowers on the day of the funeral are extremely important, as they are seen by every person attending the service.
We make it our priority to supply only the freshest quality flowers available and that is why we own and operate our own florist stores under our umbrella of companies.
We cannot emphasize enough that the flowers you will be receiving on the day of the service will be as fresh the day they were picked.
At Southern Cross we understand how traumatic losing a loved one can be. We have a comprehensive list of bereavement councilors to help you cope with the emotions felt when losing someone you love.
Regardless if you choose our services the family at Southern Cross Funerals will be more than happy to assist you with finding the relevant help that you may require.
