Why should I choose an independent Funeral Director?

The death of a loved one can be a truly sorrowful experience for the people left behind. Regardless of how the relative, friend or partner passed, the sadness is the same — people mourn because they will no longer experience someone’s company, no longer hear their voice or see their smiles, and many feel regret over some things left unsaid, arguments left unresolved, or difficult words that have been exchanged. A life has ended, and there is no returning to the past. Now, only memories remain.

Southern Cross Funerals is 100% Independent and 100% Australian Owned.

In such a delicate time with much raw emotion, it can be difficult to think about anything else other than the wonderful moments and the most joyful, cherished memories of the person we have loved and lost. But the reality is that the family members and friends are quickly propelled into make arrangements for the funeral and in doing so select a Funeral Director.

Whether the funeral services have been pre-planned or not, the family will need to work closely with the funeral director to get everything in order, taking into consideration the wishes and needs of the family and the person they have lost. And with such sensitive matters, you will want to know that you have approached the best providers of Funeral services.

One of the best things you can do to ensure that your loved one gets the best possible care and attention, from the moment of death until they come to rest in their final destination, is to choose an independent funeral director.

Here are the top three reasons why an independent funeral director would be the best choice for your needs:

  1. Independent funeral directors are family owned enterprises that are committed to putting the interests of the bereaved family first. Family operated funeral directors, unlike funeral service providers being run by large companies, will treat your loved one with care and strive to provide your family with compassion, sympathy and understanding. They will treat each family as a unit that is as precious as their own, and treat their clients with respect and dignity by taking care of all the little details and helping the family with difficult decisions so that they can put together a funeral service that is fitting for the celebration and remembrance of the deceased’s life.
  2. They have been trusted by the community for several generations. A long-established, family-run funeral service provider is sure to have earned the trust and respect of the families that they have served over the years. They understand what their clients are going through, after having witnessed the grief and mourning of countless families that came before, and will help ease the burden of making the funeral arrangements.
  1. An independent funeral director makes the decisions that will affect the service that each client receives. They will not be offering their services simply for profit, but to cater to the needs of families from all faiths and religions in a time of great need. The best interest of the clients are their top priority.
