Arranging a Funeral for your loved one can be a very difficult time in your life. It is important to have a trusted Funeral Director to help guide and support you through this time. Thompson Family Funerals strive in their expertise, compassion and respect. All of our staff are trained professionals and will guide you through any stage of grief to make this journey as comfortable as possible for you and your family.
Have you ever thought about your own Funeral? Many people feel afraid at the thought of this. By having your Funeral Pre-Arranged takes the burden off your family when this time arises. You can choose to have your favourite music played, where you wish to be buried/cremated and where your service is to take place; it may be in a Church, at our spacious Memorial Chapel, in the park or even at your own home. By having your own arrangements written down and filed with Thompson Family Funerals, entrusts that your wishes will be carried out and your life will be honoured, exactly how you wanted it to be. Having your Funeral Pre-Paid means that your family don’t have the financial stress of paying for your Funeral at a time of grief. You do not have to pay the full amount upfront, and payment plans can be put in place to help you over time. If you are interested in more information about the arrangement of your own Funeral, please call our office on 03 5472 2202 and speak with one of our friendly staff.
