We provide advice and guidance in all aspects of arranging a funeral from your first call through to the memorialisation, to create an individual and meaningful celebration of your loved ones life.
Our family and consultants are dedicated to providing compassion, dignity, understanding and honesty at all stages of the arranging process. We are members of the Funeral Directors Association of NSW Ltd and work by a very strict code of ethics.
We liaise with all cemeteries, crematoria, ministers and celebrants, organise notices in newspapers and radio broadcasts where available and order floral tributes. Procure all certificates and documents required on your behalf and attend to registration of death.
It is very natural to want to have a physical symbol of the life of someone very special, something that is unique to them and a lasting memorial.
Horder Family Funerals and Thorley & Sons Funeral Services have several years of experience in memorialisation and our consultants will guide you through your choices to make a fitting and personalised remembrance for your loved one. We supply a large range of granite headstones, bronze plaques, glass plaques, cleaning and restoration of monuments.
We also provide granite and bronze memorials for many service organisations.
“I’m not sure what they want, a burial or cremation, Church, Chapel or Graveside Service.”
Often we have families make the above statement as it is difficult to discuss these things with your family.
“We don’t need to talk about that, it won’t happen for a long time.”
A little bit of forethought could make a real difference to the ones who are left behind and give you and your loved ones peace of mind that everything will be as you wanted.
By pre-planning for your funeral you can leave instructions of what you want and the details for the Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages. Who better to provide your personal details of where you were born, married and your parents full names than yourself, often this information is not fully known by the person arranging a service.
You could also lift the financial burden from those left behind by pre-paying for what your needs will be. Please visit the Funeral Plan website to find out more.
