France Family Funerals offer funeral services in Port Stephens, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and across New South Wales. We offer a wide range of funeral service options including ethnic funeral services and funerals by women through Anne France Lady Funerals.
The life of a loved one can be celebrated in a variety of ways.
Many people are involved in a Church community, and will choose to have the funeral service there.
Others may prefer to use a funeral director’s or a crematorium chapel, or have the funeral service at some other special place, such as the family home, a park or a community hall or facility.
The number of mourners expected to attend is often an important consideration when choosing a venue for a funeral service.
Funeral services can be conducted by clergy, a civil celebrant or even a family member or friend.
The most common types of funeral services are:
A Church/Chapel Funeral Service, followed by a Cemetery/Crematorium Service
This style of funeral service begins with a service at a church or funeral chapel (or other place), followed by a procession to the cemetery or crematorium, where there is a final committal service.
A Single Service Funeral
A single service funeral can take place at one of our funeral chapels, a church, a crematorium chapel, at the graveside or a special place, such as a park or community hall.
This funeral service incorporates a final committal process, and there is no procession to the cemetery or crematorium.
A Memorial Service
A memorial service takes place before or after a private burial or cremation at any of the places referred to above.
