Arrange a Funeral

We understand the difficulties of making important decisions when enduring the death of a loved one. Our staff will work closely with you and your family to explain the options available and guide you through the steps that need to be taken at this time.

We will complete the necessary burial or cremation documentation as well as gather the information needed to register the death. Moreover, we will ensure the accordance of the funeral service to your wishes and that it is a suitable and memorable tribute to the life of your loved one.

What do I need to have prepared before arranging a funeral?

Remember to take time to gather your thoughts when a loved one passes, and when you feel ready to speak with a funeral director it is great to reach out to a supportive familiar face, either a family member or friend to accompany you through the process.

You will need to bring along prepaid funeral documents or information of your loved one’s wishes if you know of any. It is great to come prepared with a list of questions but you can be assured our friendly staff and Bethel Funerals will walk you through each step.

Check out our Helpful Resources page filled with information to assist you during this challenging time.

If you already have a Celebrant or Minister in mind we are more than happy to work with them to ensure your Funeral service runs smoothly.

The Order of Service booklet is a great way to provide those in attendance at the service with a beautiful keepsake.
