The Candlepines family will walk alongside you when making funeral arrangements. We take care of the small details, whether that means seeing to the practicalities or funeral arrangements, or advising on special and memorable touches for a funeral service.
Families can come to us, whether they have been searching for religious or non-religious funeral homes. Altona families can plan a funeral service with a Candlepines celebrant, a civil celebrant, or hold a church service according to their loved one’s religious denomination and culture.
Arranging for a funeral service that honours the life of your loved one means having the choice of a formal or informal service, followed by the time and the space to gather with family and friends.
Our funeral directors can guide you through the planning process or carry out the wishes set down in a pre-arranged funeral plan. The readings, music, photo presentations, and time given for eulogies or symbolic farewells can be arranged to lay a loved one to rest in the caring and personal manner that you would wish.
We offer simple funeral arrangements that allow for any customisation you may wish, without the burden of having to arrange for each detail. By including floral arrangements with each funeral plan, families can take comfort in the small, but important details such as these being taken care of by professional funeral directors. Altona families can give a colour or style theme, or specify the type of flowers or style of fresh floral coffin arrangements.
