Reimagining funerals and end-of-life events

Unique funerals for unique people

About Us

Rite of Passage Funerals are independent, modern funeral planners with offices in Sydney and on the Gold Coast, dedicated to arranging personalised funerals and unique end-of-life events. Our fresh perspective on funerals is what sets us apart!

We work in partnership with our clients to rethink what funerals can be – and with trusted suppliers and vendors, we can make that vision a reality.

Rite of Passage Funerals

We had such a wonderful experience using Rite of Passage Funerals. They handled the necessary funeral arrangements gently, kindly, compassionately, yet also efficiently. I really felt they listened to what we wanted.
