5 benefits of choosing an independent Funeral Director

Did you realise not all funeral directors and funeral homes are the same? Some belong to large multinational businesses; others are family owned; whilst the remainder are small, independent funeral directors.

Living Hope Funerals is not part of a corporate or multinational business. We are an independent company linked to the Baptist Association of Southern Sydney, known as Transform Southern Sydney (TSS). We have excellent relationships with local churches, not only with Baptist churches but also Anglican, Pentecostal and Uniting Churches. We have also served families from Catholic and Orthodox backgrounds, plus those with no church affiliation at all.

What does this mean for our clients?

1. Authentic values

Rather than being profit or shareholder driven, our reputation relies on providing high quality service. We have personal and authentic values, including our faith and beliefs. Our compassion for people means we understand the pain and loss our clients are feeling.

We won’t try to sell or up-sell our clients something they don’t want or need, and we genuinely care about providing them and their families with the very best possible service.

2. Fully tailored, bespoke services

Larger funeral homes often have rigid packages that are harder to change or customise. Instead, Living Hope Funerals listen to your wishes and provide a fully tailored, bespoke funeral service that perfectly suits your needs, no matter how unconventional.

Our friendly team of experienced funeral planners are easy to deal with, and we offer professional advice to help clients choose the right services.

3. Trust and support

The death of a loved one is a difficult and sad time and so dealing with an approachable, friendly funeral planner makes a huge difference. At Living Hope Funerals you will usually be dealing with the same person all the way. Having a single point of contact throughout the entire process feels more like you’re speaking to a trusted friend.

We take the time to get to know you; can provide extra support if needed and will often follow up with you after the funeral service is over.

4. Lower Prices

Independent funeral directors like Living Hope Funerals aren’t driven by profit or shareholders, so we can offer lower prices on comparable services. We’re driven by the desire to care for our clients. We provide a high level of care that you’re less likely to find in larger, corporate funeral homes.

What’s most important to us is ensuring our customers get what they need, so we’ll go out of our way to provide it. All while providing our clients with superb attention to detail throughout the whole funeral planning process. (Take a look at the reviews families have given us on Google.)

5. Arranging a funeral

Living Hope Funerals understands the funeral industry. We’re here to support, guide and help you choose the right funeral service for a meaningful farewell. Whether you have a faith or not, we offer a range of funeral services to help you honour and celebrate the life of your loved one, with genuine compassion and personalised services to suit your individual requirements.
