Who Owns White Lady Funerals?

When selecting a funeral home, one question you need to consider is whether to engage a large corporation (like White Lady Funerals) or the services of a smaller, Australian and family-owned funeral home. While large corporations have the benefit of a well-known brand, it often means that you’ll pay a premium, and you may not have as much flexibility to personalise the funeral, so it’s worthwhile to consider all of your options.
Gathered Here lets you instantly compare prices and customer reviews for all funeral homes in your area.
