They are a 100% Australian owned company who have been caring for families and arranging memorable funerals since 1895. It was founded by Thomas James Andrews, in Newtown. Initially, the services operated using horse- drawn hearses. In 1923, they were replaced with motor vehicles.
The company has grown since that time and now has branches throughout the Sydney metropolitan area. It is still owned by the descendants of the original Andrews family and continues to serve the society with the experience and expertise they have gained over a century of arranging meaningful funerals.

Traditionally, funerals are commenced in a church, where the major portion of the service would be held. This will be followed by a procession to the cemetery or crematorium at which a short committal service would be held. A variation of this is a service held at another location, perhaps at the Funeral Director’s chapel, family home or a community hall.
If there is only one service, everything will take place at one location. This simplified version of a funeral ritual may be chosen, considering the long distance people may need to travel, time constraints and to provide an opportunity for all mourners to congregate at one location.
TJ Andrews Funeral Services offers special pricing for funerals of returned service personnel and their spouses. A national flag can be draped over the coffin and a cushion is provided for display of medals.
