If you have suffered the loss of a loved one recently, please allow us to extend our hand of friendship and offer our extensive experience and professionalism. Please also accept our most sincere condolences at this most difficult time.
Newhaven Funerals is exclusively owned by the Connolly Family. We have conducted professional funeral services in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Mackay since 1979.
When first notified of the passing of your loved one, we immediately attend the place of death and take the person into our care. This consists of low temperature preservation and assists with the hygienic and thorough preparation prior to the funeral. We attend wherever and whenever requested to arrange the funeral details with the family.
Arrangements are tailored to be a reflection of the personal requirements of family and to include any wishes of the deceased.
At the conclusion of the home visit all decisions will be made and our Funeral Director will leave to take care of these details. Those details may include liaison with the Cemetery or Crematorium, a Minister or Celebrant, the Newspapers Notices, registration of the death with the Registrar General and the production of Doctor's Certificates or Coroner's release.
A helpful checklist is left so that groups such as the electoral commission, pension and tax office may be informed of the recent passing.
We have friendly, trained personnel on call 24 hours, 7 days a week who are able to immediately assist you during this time. We also respond to a 24 hour phone service to take calls on your behalf.
Professional Funeral Directors are always on hand at the service to ensure the smooth and efficient running of the service and to ensure the family and friends present receive the very best service available. We provide new and well cared for vehicles for all transportation.
