Types of Services

Blue Mountains Funerals prides itself on listening to our clients and turning their requests into a reality. The type of service you decide on is only limited by your imagination.

The types of funeral services on offer today, vary greatly from what has been offered in the past. Blue Mountains Funerals prides itself on listening to our clients and turning their requests into a reality. The type of service you decide on is only limited by your imagination. Whilst still offering more traditional and religious services, we have seen a growing desire for more personalised services which reflect the personality and beliefs of the person who has passed on.

Below is the range of service options Blue Mountains Funerals can offer you.

Funeral service types


A traditional funeral service is typically held in a chapel or church and is conducted by a Clergy of the church or a funeral celebrant. The cremation or burial (at a cemetery of your choice) is immediately followed by the service. These services can also include a viewing before the ceremony or can be arranged in the days leading up to it.


A graveside service can be in a cemetery of your choice at the burial site by a Clergy or funeral celebrant. For those who would like a private committal, the burial can take place prior to the funeral or memorial service.


A service is held in a chapel or church before Blue Mountains Funerals continue the proceedings onto the crematorium for a private cremation. Your loved ones ashes will be collected and returned to the family at a later date.


A memorial service is a more loosely structured ceremony to celebrate the life of your loved one. These services are becoming increasingly more personalised and there is no time limit as to when they need to be held as the cremation or burial has often be held in advance. This type of service can provide more time for family and friends to gather, especially if people need to travel.

No ceremony

Some families choose not to have a service or ceremony. Blue Mountains Funerals will arrange for the burial or cremation and notify the family.

I would highly recommend Blue Mountains Funeral Services for their warmth, support and attention to detail. We could not have asked for more.

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.

September 2020

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

August 2020

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
