Slide Arranging A Funeral

It’s time to say goodbye…

Together, we can arrange your loved one’s funeral in a way that’s truly personal to them.

Religious, humanist or eco-friendly? Simple ceremony or a big send-off? According to their plan, or not really sure about their wishes?

Our experienced team will guide you through the decisions you’ll need to make, helping you honour all the important details of your loved one’s life.

No detail is too small.

What to think about when you are ready…

  • Where would you like your loved one to rest?
  • Do they have any religious or self-care needs that need to be attended to?
  • Did your loved one pre-arrange their funeral or write down any of their wishes?
  • Would your loved one prefer to be buried or cremated?
  • Did they have a funeral plan/fund, or do you have a budget in mind?
  • What type of funeral would your loved one have wanted?
  • A celebration of their life at a crematorium, natural burial site, or a venue that is close to their heart?
  • A traditional religious ceremony at a place of worship?
  • Perhaps a simple, non-religious ceremony or a direct burial or cremation?
  • Would you like family and friends to gather after the ceremony at a wake or funeral reception?
  • Or would you like to arrange a memorial concert or service for your loved one at a later date and need some help in the meantime?

What Type of Funeral would your loved one want?

Religious Funerals

Working with your preferred minister or faith leader, we’ll ensure all relevant spiritual elements are incorporated into your loved one’s service, and their every religious need is taken care of by our team in our specialist facilities.

Natural & Eco Funerals

Embracing all faiths, or no faith at all, natural or eco funerals leave minimal lasting impact on the environment. We’ll guide you through your options helping you to make ‘green’ choices that are right for your loved one, and your family.

Celebration of Life

An increasingly popular way to honour the life of a loved one, these celebrations tend to be humanist, civil, or non-religious, but we can easily incorporate religious rituals into these deeply personalised ceremonies for your loved one.

Adding the personal touch

There are lots of thoughtful ways to personalise your loved one’s funeral – from the casket or coffin they rest in, to the vehicle of choice, to the music, readings and floral tributes shared at their service.


Paying for the funeral arrangements

Finding the money to pay for a funeral can be extremely stressful and daunting. Especially if your loved one’s death was unexpected or they didn’t make any provision for their funeral costs. As a responsible funeral provider, Coles wants to offer you as much support as possible.


All our prices are displayed on our website, so you can see, up front, the costs associated with the arrangements you would like to make.


We also work with a select number of carefully chosen partners that can provide you with funeral finance so you can concentrate on giving your loved one the send-off they deserve.


If there’s no estate and no provision made – paying for the funeral falls to the deceased family. However, to ease this financial burden, Funeral Safe is a specialist funeral loan provider, offering highstreet bank interest rates, no repayment penalties – and giving you complete control of the amount you borrow.

If your loved one has left an estate and you contract Curtis Legal to manage the probate process for you – Curtis Legal will pay all funeral costs in full, pending probate. Their fixed professional fee, along with the funeral costs will then be deducted from the balance of the estate when it has been settled.
