Types of Funeral Services

Saturday, 3 December 2022

The type of service you choose is only limited by your imagination. While some people prefer a more traditional or religious service others are looking for different ways to say goodbye. Whatever your preference we will work with you to deliver a service that reflects the personality and beliefs the person who has passed.


The traditional funeral is still one of the most popular ways to farewell your loved one.
It usually consists of a gathering of friends and family, often in a Church or Chapel, followed by a cremation or burial at a cemetery of your choice.

We are proud to offer our beautiful Heritage Chapel as a venue for both religious and non-religious funeral services.
A viewing before the ceremony can be arranged, immediately before the ceremony or in the days leading up to it.
The Clergy or Funeral Celebrant will lead the service, with readings, poems and hymns or songs of your choice.

Graveside Burial

Another traditional funeral service held at the burial site itself. Friends and family come together at the burial site for a short service, including eulogy, music, readings, and poems before the casket is committed to the ground.

Almost every town has its own cemetery, and we are also able to provide services in Brisbane and other country areas as needed.


Many families opt for a contemporary funeral held in venues such as golf clubs, private gardens, parks (whatever you can imagine).

Heritage Funerals proudly conduct funeral services in many locations and towns on the Darling Downs.
We can develop a customised funeral service and ritual with you to celebrate and remember your loved one. For information regarding specific facilities and locations available, please contact us.
This could include readings, prayers, rites, and songs.

Memorial Service

A memorial service is when we have a funeral but your loved one is not present. Typically, a cremation or burial has taken place before the memorial service.
We can create a beautiful service, in any location, at any time to honour your loved one.
We can help you personalise the memorial through the location, celebrant or MC, music, flowers, and personalised theme.
