Re Purpose Coffins?

Re Purpose Coffins?


Last month I wrote about environmental options within the funeral service. This week I came across possibly one of the most sensible environmental options available and its been right in front of us all the time!Coffin manufacturing has changed a great deal over the past century, I remember my grandfather making coffins from solid timber and without modern manufacturing techniques had to use hot water in order to bend the shoulders into coffins. Paper laminates, custom and particle board just didn't exist. Polishing or finishing was applied....Read Full Article



An Hour On The Day.... Hardly!

An Hour On The Day.... Hardly!


The funeral was only 20 minutes away from commencing and my new colleague turned to me and asks, "are you nervous because I am". I turned to her and said, "no,  I'm OK", I lied.I met Fred's  (not his real name) family almost a week before, he was terminally ill and had a young family. Fred was in his last days of life. His family had somewhat come to terms with this and were quietly calm in talking about him. Naturally, at times they would need time to compose themselves as they were coming to grips with the....Read Full Article

The Hearse

The Hearse


If I were to ask you to transport a box approximately 6 foot in length 18 inches high and 18 inches wide in your station wagon, you would quickly discover it probably doesn't fit, and you would need to source a different mode of transport. The box, as described, is a standard size coffin in the Australian Funeral Industry and yes the Australian Funeral Industry still uses station wagons, but with a twist?The Australian hearse is typically built from a station wagon body, the vehicle is cut and extended, and the roof also removed and....Read Full Article



How to choose a Funeral Venue

How to choose a Funeral Venue


When choosing where to have a funeral your choices have now grown.Restaurants, bars, reception centres, wineries, gardens, sports clubs, private homes the choices are now only limited by your imagination.Funerals have always traditionally been held in churches however as society becomes more secular it would appear that many are putting great thought into the meaning and relevance of the funeral and naturally where it should be held. Since the 1960s funeral homes had become an alternative to the church and whilst many families still opted for misters....Read Full Article

Leave it to The Funeral Director

Leave it to The Funeral Director


When we were working through the town planning process for our new funeral home, I was expressing my frustration to our planner over the lack of understanding from some of the council regulators. My planner said this, "Robert, your industry is so unique that in a planners entire work life, they may never be involved in the planning process for a funeral home and so therefore how could they begin to know".It got me to thinking of all the people we deal with and how many may have the same lack of understanding about what we do.Often some....Read Full Article

Day of The Dead

Day of The Dead


Can you imagine the Australian government providing a public holiday to celebrate the dead, sound a bit far fetched? Well, not in Mexico. In the James Bond movie "Spectre", the opening scene starts with a Day of the Dead Street parade in Mexico City. Possibly one of the most remarkable facts of this scene is that no such procession had ever taken place in the city before this film scene. Whilst the day of the Dead festivities were common place the parade was not. However, from October 2016 the street parade became an annual feature of....Read Full Article

Who Is Your Funeral Director?
