Independent Funeral Directors


Why should I choose an independent funeral director?



In Australia there are two major styles of funeral home. The first is the independent. These are locally or family owned businesses that were started without the aid of a major company. The second are those that are owned by larger companies, for example those that are publicly listed like Invocare. There are benefits and disadvantages to both, however it is important to know which provider is most appropriate for you. Independent funeral directors are still regulated and can become a member of the Australian Funeral Directors Association (AFDA) as well as the Independent Funeral Directors Association of Australia (IFDAA). Some independents have been trading for more than 100 years and have a reputation of excellence in their local areas. Interestingly, other independent funeral homes have sold their brands to the larger companies - so at times it can become quite confusing. It is against the law for non-independent funeral homes to refer to themselves as independent. Additionally, those providers that are owned by a publicly listed company must display their ownership clearly. We have tried to list those that are independently owned, most of these are mentioned below.
