Plan For Tomorrow, Today
Right now is the perfect time to take the first step towards protecting your family and ensuring that your wishes are known. Who knows what you want better than you?


When someone enters a Nursing Home/Aged care facility, it is mostly a requirement that a Funeral Director is nominated. Burdekin Funerals provides a service to these facilities that if a family has NOT selected a Funeral Director, we will transfer your loved one into our care free of charge, so that the family may make the decision of which Funeral Director to use without the stress of a hasty decision.

Most Funeral Directors have an After Hours Transfer Fee and some even have a Mortuary Holding Fee. At Burdekin Funerals, we only charge a small fee for transfers and do not have a Mortuary Holding Fee at all. We don't believe that you or your family should be penalised if the death occurs after hours.

Start The Process Together.
