Life is about beginnings and endings, happiness and loss. Every life lived has its own story to tell. Share your story with your loved ones and talk about your wishes for your funeral. We encourage you to talk - to have these meaningful conversations with your loved ones.
As well as supporting families when their loved one passes, we can also assist with prearrangements and prepayments. Prearrangements assist families with decision making when they are stressed and grieved. Prepayments are managed through the FDANZ Funeral Trust – held in trust for when it is required.
We also offer a monumental and headstone service, covering everything from memorial plaques to headstones.
If you would like to talk to someone about funeral/monumental options or would even like a tour of our premises, please contact Nigel, Donna, Chris or Mel at Avenal Park Funeral Home - 03 218 9021.
