When you choose Guilfoyle Funerals to organise a funeral, we will help and support you in every aspect of the arrangements. Our funeral director and staff at our Atherton or Mareeba locations will listen to your wishes and ensure they are carried out as you have requested.
What To Do When Someone Dies
A medical practitioner or family member will need to contact a funeral home of your choice to organise transportation of the departed. Guilfoyle Funerals is available 24/7 to make all the necessary transfer arrangements.
There is no rush to do it all at once, take a few days to discuss the wishes of the family and of your departed loved one. Once you have agreed on the basic details of the funeral service, make an appointment with one of our compassionate staff members to help you arrange the funeral, we can even come to you.
Other Funeral Choices
Seeing and spending time with your loved one prior to the funeral service is a personal choice and one we can discuss with you.
Placing flowers, casket spray or other items on the coffin makes it more personalised and can reflect the spirit of the deceased. There is no right or wrong item, this can be what ever suits you and your family.
A memorial book serves as a record of those who attend the service and includes the person’s name and a short note or condolence. On such an emotional day it is hard to remember everything that happens and everyone who attends.
