Funeral Directors Gold Coast

Funeral Directors Gold Coast

If you’re in need a funeral director you’ve come to the right place. Our unique and personal processes ensure an end-of-life event like no other.

how we work…


Let’s Connect

The first thing to do is call us and share your story. If you feel like we’re the right fit for you, we’ll email you our welcome package and book in a time to meet face-to-face at your preferred location. Yup, we come to you! (Note: If it’s an urgent request, we can speed the process up so don’t worry.) 


Initial Meeting

Our initial meeting involves talking – sometimes lots of talking – about your loved one. We ask questions to get a deeper understanding of who they are, their likes and dislikes, faiths and beliefs, loves, legacy, traditions… not whether they wanted a wooden or wicker casket (although we will have to address that at a later date). If you’re happy to proceed, we arrange to pick your loved one up and take them into our care.*

*we work in partnership with a professional mortuary based on the Gold Coast.



After our first meeting we go off and put those ideas into a curated funeral concept, providing a detailed outline of the recommended venue, theme, ceremony, ritual and minute details for you to sign off on. A clear budget is set for no messy surprises, everything is itemised for clarity and convenience.



Once approved, we get busy locking in venues, coordinating logistics, speaking with our preferred suppliers and vendors and filing all the necessary paperwork on your behalf. We keep you informed of where we’re at with everything, and if there’s anything you want to do along the way, we encourage that – it’s creative collaboration at its finest!


The Day Of

We’re there to support you in every way we know how and more often than not, the day of the funeral is the hardest. We arrive early to set-up and ensure everything is in place and running smoothly, so that you can just focus on you

The funeral of my brother-in-law in May by Rite of Passage Funerals was perfect. They provided the service that we required and carried it out with empathy and great consideration for the people concerned. If it is possible to have an enjoyable funeral, that made a joyous day, then it was. Every attention had been made to detail so that it ran seamlessly, looked wonderful and provided a memorable service of celebration. Thank you Yasemin. A day to remember for all the right reasons.
