Funeral parlours, more commonly known as funeral homes in Australia, are businesses that provide funeral services for the communities they serve. They can also referred to as funeral directors, although the term “funeral director” is also used to refer to the individuals employed by funeral parlours to arrange and carry out the necessary services.
Many funeral parlours also have a funeral parlour chapel where you can hold the entire service if you are planning a single service funeral, or the first part of the service if you are planning a dual service funeral. For information, see our Guide to Planning a Funeral for a discussion of the different service options and types of funerals available to families.
How much a funeral parlour will charge you for funeral services depends on the type of service you want to arrange.
Apart from the type of service you choose, prices also naturally vary between funeral parlours based on the markets they serve, ranging from low-cost operators to the more lavish, high-end funeral parlours.
