The Heritage Family have been Funeral Directors since 1934.
Frank ‘Spriggy’ Heritage first conducted a funeral in March 1934. 90 years later the fourth generation of the Heritage Family are still providing the same level of excellent care and service the family have been known for.
The first Heritage Family Funeral Home was in the beautiful Yarra Valley town of Healesville, Victoria. Later, Spriggy’s sons Robbie and Keith established funeral homes in nearby Lilydale and Croydon. Keith’s sons, Wes and Ashley, then in 1997 opened their own funeral home on the Gold Coast, expanding to Tweed Heads and Chinderah.
Heritage Brothers are available to assist you and your family 24 hours a day.
