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.

It was such an emotional time for us but your professionalism and compassion helped enormously.

I haven’t been through this process before but it wasn’t upsetting as both Julie and Jo gave us such support and nothing was too much trouble.

I would definitely recommend you after our experience.

The team, especially Asha and Tom, are wonderful people to work with. They provided professional, compassionate guidance through the funeral planning process, and my dad’s service was exactly how we envisioned. I would recommend you to anybody who finds themselves in the unfortunate position of needing to plan a funeral.

Not only were you all very patient but showed compassion in this difficult time. Tom we thank you and all your wonderful staff. The women looked so beautiful on the day and we were all touched at how everything fell into place. We think Dad would have been honoured.

The funeral service that you put together was absolutely perfect and was exactly what mum would have wanted. Please know that if I ever need a funeral director again you will be my first call.
