What kind of funeral services do George Hartnett Funerals offer?
Since 1947 George Hartnett Funerals has been providing care and compassion to the families of Queensland. Our funeral directors provide the highest quality funeral services, funerals with heart, to all the families that choose us.
Funeral services today are as varied as the lives of the individuals they are for. We believe each funeral can be a unique experience which commemorates the life of a valued friend or loved one.
Funeral services can be held at churches, synagogues, or other houses of worship but they can also be at a funeral home or other location. We can help you arrange a funeral service at the venue of your choice, even the family home.
Can I hold a viewing?
Yes. A viewing is one of the choices you can make about your heartfelt funeral service. They can be a special time for families and in many cultures they are a standard part of the funeral service.
We can arrange a viewing at one of our funeral homes, at your church or any other appropriate venue, even the family home.
Can I hold a graveside service?
Yes. Holding a service at the graveside can be a meaningful part of a farewell to a loved one.
Graveside service can be held after the funeral service or be the actual venue for the funeral service. George Hartnett Funerals are experienced at conducting graveside funeral services and will attend with respect and dignity.
Can I hold a memorial service?
Yes. A memorial service offers family and friends the opportunity to remember and celebrate the life of the deceased, express their grief, and say their goodbyes, in a heartfelt and respectful manner.
It may take place at the funeral home, the family's home, a church, or even outdoors. This is a time to remember your loved one by gathering with friends and family. A memorial service can make a meaningful addition to a private funeral service. They can also be held after a burial has taken place.
George Hartnett’s funeral directors make sure that memorial services are as heartfelt as the actual funeral service.
Cemeteries and permanent memorials
A physical or permanent memorial in a cemetery or memorial garden has an important role to play in dealing with grief and is an important consideration when planning a burial. When deciding which cemetery is best; family connections to the area, cultural and religious requirements, the convenience of transport, the beauty of the cemetery grounds can all be important considerations.
George Hartnett’s funeral homes have helped countless Queensland families make the right cemetery choice and our experienced funeral directors can help you choose an appropriate cemetery for your loved one.
From our experience we can recommend the following Queensland cemeteries:
We can also assist you with arrangements for any other cemetery in Queensland.
Can I hold a family gathering?
Yes. A family gathering, which is often called a wake, is held after the funeral service and can be an important time for friends and relatives to gather together. It can be a time to share memories, help family and friends deal with loss and to provide hospitality for those who may have travelled a great distance to be at the funeral service.
George Hartnett’s funeral directors can help remove the stress of putting on a family gathering by assisting in the organising of the occasion for you. We can help you with venues, catering and staff so you and your family can be there for your guests.
You can choose one of the function rooms at our funeral homes, a hotel or club, or even your home.
