How To Arrange A Funeral

Protect your peace of mind when you need to arrange a funeral.

Protect your peace of mind when you need to arrange a funeral.

Most of us don’t arrange a lot of funerals throughout our lives. And this lack of ‘experience’ can make the process baffling and scary for the unprepared.

Whether you have some experience or not, support is welcome. This is one of the most important things you’ll ever have to do for a loved one. And it’s a good idea to have a general idea of the process before you need to arrange a funeral.

Discover Premium Support From A Trusted Advisor

At Crane Funerals, premium support makes your funeral experience easy as possible.

Before meeting with us, it’s a good idea to have preliminary discussions with your family. Sharing your loss and subsequent grief will reduce its initial shock. You can also discuss some of your funeral options. This step helps reduce the overwhelm felt at this terrible time.

Traditional Funeral Or A Celebration Of Life?

Many die with no funeral plan. In this case, attempt as a family to pinpoint what your loved one’s wishes may have been. Consider too what you all feel makes a fitting farewell. Often the most personalised celebrations are arrived at through this style of compromise.

Crane Funerals are known for Services with a difference. In fact, we support you in whatever you choose as a farewell for your loved one. We hold funerals in many different Venues. And we approach all we do with premium support.

We had prepaid for my father’s funeral. The costs were very reasonable, One phone call to Damian and the wheels were set in motion, He was very understanding and patient with us as we tried to put together content for the Service which was to be live-streamed due to Covid restrictions. He was available to chat at any time of the day and the Service went well despite the obstacles. Crane Funerals has looked after both of our parents funerals and I have no hesitation recommending them to anybody.


Recently we had a sudden loss in our family with a vehicle accident. It was one of the most difficult times we have ever faced. We were advised that there was TAC funeral coverage that we could apply for, but we weren’t sure of how to do everything, especially given our grief clouding our minds. We contacted a few funeral directors and Damian and Crane Funerals was our choice. Everything from the start was made as easy as possible, and they handled the whole TAC funeral application for us. My brothers funeral was exactly as we wished, and nothing was too much trouble for Crane Funerals – they made it simple and it was just so beautiful on the day.


Damian was excellent.We would highly recommend Damian and Crane Funerals. Damian was very supportive and caring, which helped us manage this very difficult time. He was understanding and went out of his way to help us with all our requests. Damian was compassionate and kind. We really appreciated everything he did. There was follow-up after the funeral and this was a nice touch.


Great caring service. Crane Funerals delivered a lovely service recently for our son who was taken from us suddenly in an accident. Damian arranged everything regarding the TAC funeral paperwork etc, and the service was excellent before, at, and after the funeral. Highly recommended for service and care – Crane Funerals handle everything with simplicity, straightforward advice and terrific customer service.
