Louise and her staff were the perfect guides for this difficult process. They were knowledgeable, considerate, and above all, they listened actively and allowed us to conduct the kinds of funeral rituals that we wanted. I cannot praise them highly enough.

Blue Mountains Funerals were very helpful, considerate, kind, efficient and sensitive to our needs. Would thoroughly recommend them.

Louise and the staff at Blue Mountains funerals were caring and professional, which really helped myself and my family at this time of grief. My mother had a pre-paid and pre-planned funeral arrangement with clear instructions and choices that the staff had on record which made following our mothers wishes comforting and easier at the time. Thank you to all staff for your professional support

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

Heather
