Family Funeral Services
When it comes to designing a funeral to meet individual needs, there are many options available. Choice of venue, coffin, floral tribute, media requirements etc. all impact upon the price and also the experience.

Option for viewing before the funeral
Viewing at our Dromana care centre is available to family members as an optional no-cost extra in our Professional service fee.
We know how it is to lose a loved one without warning, and that some people really need to say a personal good-bye prior to the funeral. Family members and friends who have not had the opportunity to connect with their loved one due to Covid-19 restrictions, or other circumstances, may need, and want, the chance to pay their private respects.
This may help with the grieving process while offering the opportunity to place sentimental items such as mementos, flowers or photographs in the coffin.
Should you desire, viewings can be arranged at Dromana at a time to suit you, anytime before the funeral, or at the funeral venue immediately prior to the service.
