5 tips for planning a memorable funeral

5 tips for planning a memorable funeral

Whatever the circumstances, losing a loved one is tough and planning a funeral can be an overwhelming experience. At Heritage Brothers Funeral Services, we’re here for you. We’re ready to give you our guidance and support to create a send-off that truly reflects the life of your loved one. 

To help you, here are five tips on how to plan a heartfelt and memorable funeral service: 

Add personal touches

A funeral is centred around celebrating the individuality of your loved one. Our Gold Coast funeral directors are happy to chat with you to come up with ways to add a personal touch to the funeral service. 

These personal touches could be as simple as your favourite photos, cherished possessions or something that brings to light their hobbies or accomplishments. Personalising the funeral service will leave everyone with warm memories of your loved one. 

Tell their story

At Heritage Brothers, we like to think of the funeral program as a way to share the story of your loved one’s life. We encourage you to share their biography, favourite quotes and anecdotes throughout the funeral service. It’s a beautiful way to share aspects of their life and shine a light on their personal story. 

Honour traditions

Every funeral service is different, which often comes down to our clients embracing cultural and religious traditions. At Heritage Brothers Funeral Services we have a high level of respect for all cultural and religious traditions and will go out of our way to accommodate your wishes. Whether it’s a special ceremony, cultural ritual, or personal family tradition, weaving these into the funeral services adds depth and meaning.

Create a sharing atmosphere

The most memorable funerals are often those in which everyone feels comfortable to share their stories and memories. Heritage Brothers funeral directors will help you set up a space where friends and family can swap stories and reflections about your loved one, creating an open atmosphere where everyone can celebrate the impact they had on their lives. 

Memorable keepsakes

Offering keepsakes to take home is a beautiful way for funeral attendees to keep their cherished memories close by. Whether it’s a memorial card or other personalised items that reflect the life of your loved one, Heritage Brothers Funeral Services can help you pick out meaningful gifts your loved one’s family and friends will cherish.
