We take the stress out of arranging a funeral to make sure families can focus on giving their loved ones a unique and meaningful remembrance.

Husband and wife team Phillip and Bronwyn will be there from the moment you contact Candlepines, to the funeral – and even afterwards.

Many families choose to blend different traditions and options to suit the personality and wishes of their loved ones.

The nature and timing of the ceremony and burial / cremation options may vary based on personal requirements, customs if viewing the body, family travel.

Ceremony & Styles

We work with you to tailor a service that will reflect and honour your loved one’s life perfectly.

Together we’ll create a service that will help friends and family to say goodbye and find comfort in closure.

We will take you through every step to reduce the worry and stress of making funeral arrangements.

Candlepines specialises in church services. We have wide experience and understanding of most religious denominations and cultures.

Whatever you choose, you can be assured that the funeral ceremony will run smoothly and exactly as planned.
