Our History

The majority of great funeral homes experience an evolution over a period of time as they meet the changing needs of the communities which they serve. This has been the case with us at Grace Funerals.  Over 20 years Grace has evolved from Funerals of Care in Lawson, into Lady of Grace Funerals in Emu Plains and in 2012 the name was changed to simply, Grace Funerals. These changes occurred under the previous owners.  In 2013 The Dooley family became the owner/ operators and they have continued to build upon the work of their predecessors while introducing their unique touches.

Our Future:
We each recognise that change is a constant in life and the funeral industry is not immune from it. We are constantly monitoring the trends and innovations within our industry and we commit to ensuring that we remain relevant and contemporary.  We continually implement products and services that support our position as the leading and most creative funeral provider within Greater Western Sydney. This offers a clients the widest of choices.

However, there is one aspect of our service that will never change and that is the sincerity and quality of our care. While we wish to provide the best of the available services we never forget that the reason that you have engaged us is because you have lost someone whom you care deeply about and who has important place in your heart and life.

We are a proudly a two generation family business. We bring a unique perspective to funeral service that is a blend of those respective generations, combined with a depth of experience and experiences that few, if any, of our competitors can match.

Our Mother died under the trying circumstances of Covid19 restrictions. The funeral we had planned for her could therefore not proceed. The staff at Blue Mountains Funerals were exemplary in their care, compassion, empathy and support as well as practicality as we organised a virtual loving farewell for our mother. We have been overwhelmed by the feedback from our family and friends. Much of the credit needs to go to Blue Mountains funerals namely Louise, Rose and Asha for making the virtual option real and personal.

The staff at Blue Mountains Funerals were absolutely wonderful! They went above and beyond to ensure my mother’s funeral service was personalised to her. During a time of immense grief, you really need someone who understands what the family needs, and the staff of Blue Mountains Funerals really delivered in terms of service and compassion. Highly recommended!

Thank you for all you have done for us.  We did your appreciate your input into our mother’s funeral.  You displayed love and concern for us as a family, thank you.

The staff of Blue Mountains Funerals were so sympathetic and sensitive to our needs both at Emu Plains when we visited for my sister to view our mother and on the day of the funeral.  They were ready and on hand when we needed to ask for advice on anything.

I would not hesitate in spreading the word to others if they are in need of a funeral to be arranged to use Blue Mountains Funerals.

Kind regards
