Rite of Passage Funerals are modern funeral planners based on the Lower North Shore, dedicated to arranging unforgettable funerals in Sydney.

We’re not your average funeral directors, and we’re proud of that. We’re a female-owned and operated company actively choosing to push refresh on some outdated practices, in an effort to make funerals more personlised, modern and beautiful.

We service the entire Sydney metropolitan region, including the Lower North Shore, Northern Beaches and beyond. If you want us to help you but live further afield, reach out and we’ll see if we can help.

After the death of our Mother I reached out to Yasmin to arrange a ceremony for our Mum was that nothing of the ‘ordinary’. Our Mum was nothing that aligned with ‘tradition’, She was her own woman and would of never wished to be whisked away in a hearse, or her final hurrah to be surrounded by those who she loved so dearly in a dark & dismal setting.Yasmin set up the ceremony in a beautiful pocket on a secluded beach, and made everyone feel so welcome.. Every single thing that was arranged for the day was like I had done it myself, it was exactly how i envisioned and dreamed of it to be.For days following the ceremony I had many people come up to me and say ‘the ceremony was so beautiful, it was absolutely what your Mum would of wanted.. and I’ve decided that’s how I want my life to be celebrated’For what was supposed to be a very heavy day for us kids (there’s 4 of us) and our Dad, turned out to be something so special.. We will carry the memory of our Mother’s farewell as such a beautiful & sacred moment in our lives, all thanks to Yasmin.We will forever be grateful for the lengths Yasmin went to, to ensure no stone was left un-turned. Our Mum was with us, watching with joy. I just know it.Again, thank you from the bottom of our broken hearts xxread more

Yasemin is a beautiful lady who helped my family and I celebrate the life of my husband. She created an amazing space for us to truly honour and remember an incredible life. Even though it was a time of sadness and grief for my family, the service and atmosphere was uplifting and joyous. I am so very grateful to Rites of Passage Funerals and Yasemin for their support and incredible vision. Thank you. Linda Biffinread more

From the moment we met Yasemin, we knew we’d made the right choice! Yasemin is a gentle soul, offering a beautiful tailored approach to funerals. She helped us plan the most special service for Mum – simple, personal & full of love. She took care with every detail – & took care of us. We have cherished memories of this day.read more

I had the privilege of working with Yasemin and photographing the work that she does with her incredible business, Rite of Passage Funerals. Yasemin’s attention to detail, deep love for the families she works with and her beautiful kind nature was amazing to witness. I have been to many funerals over the years but have never seen one put together so beautifully and thoughtfully in a way that honours someones uniqueness and life so well. Amazing work!read more
