Funeral Directors | Funeral Planning | Funeral Advice
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.
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 in Sydney, on the Gold Coast or surrounding areas. Yup, we come to you! (Note: If it’s an urgent request, we can speed the process up so don’t worry.)
Our initial meeting involves talking – sometimes lots of talking – about your person. We ask questions to get a deeper understanding of who they are, their likes and dislikes, faiths and beliefs, loves, legacy, traditions. From here we’ll talk about the type of event best suited to your budget and needs, and create a personalised concept just for you. 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 in both our locations.
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.

We strive to build strong relationships with all our clients, helping guide you through the process of grief long after the funeral ends. We offer grief retreats, workshops and more – with existing ‘family members’ receiving 25% off all bookings.
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.
