Every person is unique and the life they live unique. To best honour a person’s memory in death, their funeral service needs to reflect this. We are here to help create the best possible farewell for your loved one. While doing so we hope this will assist with your mourning, as you move forward in life without them.
You may have family or friends at the funeral service that will have difficulty walking behind the funeral cortege along the roadways to the gravesite. We will arrange for these people to be driven by our chauffeur bus service to the grave and returned to the cemetery entrance after the service has concluded.
We have self managed children’s crèche facilities available, with a real-time TV/Video link up, for parents of small children to watch the ceremony privately, should they prefer.
There are many unique and personal funeral services. Every day we meet with families and communities from varied and different walks of life. Sensitivity and respect for cultural diversity is something we pride ourselves on.
For many people, the funeral process is not complete until they have taken the opportunity to erect a memorial. This may be as simple as scattering ashes at a memorable location, placing a plaque in a cemetery garden or organising a formal monument over a grave. There are many options open to you. Most often the decisions do not need to be made until after the funeral has taken place.
Women play such an important role in our day to day lives and a there are times where families may prefer to deal with the ladies at Leanne O’Dea Funeral Directors.
Our funeral homes offer a variety of hospitality facilities to ensure your comfort and support during a very difficult and emotional time. From freshly ground espresso coffee to our vast selection of teas our staff are here to help. We can also assist you with all catering needs.
