Brisbane Funeral Directors - Newhaven Funerals


When You Need a Funeral Director in Brisbane?

Our Funeral and Cremation Services are here to help you!


With so many funeral directors to choose from, it is comforting to know that our Brisbane funeral directors are fully trained, and have helped countless families and loved ones like you, plan and arrange truly meaningful funerals.

We have helped families navigate through the physical, mental, and emotional stress that follows the loss of a loved one—all without the exorbitant funeral costs that other funeral homes may provide.

Newhaven Funerals take what we do very seriously.

For us, it is a community commitment to providing compassion, dignity and tender care to families who have lost loved ones.

This process doesn’t end the day of the funeral either.

Our funeral directors remain in contact with your family until it’s certain there has been a level of recovery achieved.

The personalised care includes creating a memory book to honour your loved one and sending out a personalised “thank you” to those who attended the funeral.

We are different because we’re family owned & have been conducting funerals for Brisbane families since 1979 and our service level continues to increase.

Clients choose us, not because of the complimentary fresh fruit and ice water we provide, not because of the white gloved service or the home visit consultation, but for the sheer fact that we’re a family business operating successfully for over 3 decades!

Newhaven Funerals staff are specially chosen for their caring natures and willingness to be empathetic and helpful for people during their grieving process.

Our services are designed to take the weight of planning and arranging a funeral off of your shoulders.

We understand that losing a loved one is a difficult time for anyone, which is why we do our best to provide the thoughtful, compassionate, and reliable service you and your family deserve, while keeping funeral costs affordable.

We are here for you 24/7 – When you need us most.

The loss of a loved one is an undeniably difficult time for anyone, whether or not the loss has been prepared for or not.

In either case, having a trusted funeral director by your side is important.

Our lines are open 24 hours a day on 1800 644 524, so please do not hesitate to get in touch with us no matter how odd the hour.

We are more than capable of helping plan funerals even at short notice.

Whether you prefer to go with a traditional funeral, to have the body cremated at our crematorium, or to scatter ashes at an ocean funeral, we work hard to make sure each funeral is a meaningful tribute to your loved one.

Planning Is A Great Gift For Your Loved Ones

One excellent way to reduce the stress and worry during the grieving process is to pre-plan your funeral service.

This idea may seem rather morbid, but it is an excellent way to save family and loved ones from having to make difficult decisions during their grieving times.

Newhaven Funerals staff has a questionnaire packet that they can go over with you to help you make every decision necessary to plan your funeral service.

We offer a no-obligation free consultation, so if this service sounds like something you may be interested in, consider calling Newhaven Funerals today.

You can contact us for accurate Brisbane Cremation and Burial costs.

Tim Connolly Funeral Director – Newhaven Funerals

Tim Connolly Funeral Director Newhaven Funerals

Tim Connolly

Growing up around funerals since the age of six allows Tim a unique understanding of how a family owned funeral business should be.

He has seen his Mum and Dad, Denise and Phil Connolly grow from a small commercial unit at West End in Brisbane to witnessing the company grow to a well known national public company.

The business has since reverted to a smaller business under the name Newhaven Funerals which provides more personal and meaningful funeral services.

Since leaving school in 1992 Tim has been deeply involved in all aspects of operating their family owned business, including operating crematoriums, memorial gardens and pet cremation business. Tim is more than competent to assist all clients with any request.

Now married with two children, Tim’s personal time is spent with family, friends and the community.
