- With Kindness and Understanding
With all our years in the industry, we have developed an understanding to be warm, open and attentive. It is important to our Indian funeral service directors that the funeral service fits in line with your religious and cultural beliefs, and properly honours and celebrates the life of your loved one.
The most common religious belief in the Indian community is Hinduism. During a Hindu funeral, those in attendance participate in chanting mantras and celebrate the life over their lost loved one.
Transfer – In the event of a death our funeral directors look after the transfer of the body to our funeral home for mortuary care.
Mortuary Care – We work with morticians who look after and help preserve the body. They also dress the body, to be ready for the viewing.
Cremation – Our newly proposed funeral home has its own crematorium, meaning we can cremate the body onsite. Some families also choose to be present and watch the coffin be inserted into the cremator as part of how they say goodbye.
Coffin – Our funeral home also can work with you to provide a suitable coffin for the deceased.
Registration of Death – We can provide your family the forms to register the death of your loved one.
Death Certificate issues by Births, Deaths and Marriages – While we don’t issue the form, we can send it off to the Government. After filing the form, you can expect to receive the certificate in the mail within 2-3 days.
To be closer with relatives, you may or your departed may for the ashes to be sent overseas to find rest in the family home or a natural place of beauty and significance in their youth. At Antyesti Funeral Services, our funeral directors can arrange the transportation and international transfers. We make all arrangements while keeping a deep understanding of importance and respect to the human remains through every step of the journey.

We are writing this review to give others in the most sensitive time in their life, some peace of mind ..... not only coming to terms with our loss but also entrusting someone caring, honest & professional to look after our precious lost one. We were completely overwhelmed & had absolutely no idea where to start & what needed to be done when you lose someone, we had never been in this position before. Scott at Afterlife went above & beyond to help us and cater to our specific requests ,he did everything willingly without question & in this time of COVID he guided us step by step thru this uncertain time, he contacted us day & night keeping us fully aware of any changing conditions, we did not have to add this strain to our already difficult time, not only did he look after our mum he also looked after us..... It is a surreal time, a devastating time and we were relieved that Scott was nothing like the stereotypical funeral director, he is just a man that cares deeply & has the highest level of integrity. Thank you Scott & your Special team who cared for our mum so kindly & professionally.
A warm heartfelt thank you to the team at Afterlife Funerals. A special thank you to Scott for ensuring that a difficult day passed with ease and making myslef and my family feel as comfortable as possible.
Scott was extremely respectful and helpful at such a difficult time. He provided all the information and documentation we needed promptly and always kept us informed on what was happening. He was always available to answer any questions we had and continued to be so weeks later. Scott and Afterlife Funerals offer a leading edge service at a very competitive price.
On behalf of my mother, sister and family we would love to thank Louise & Scott from Afterlife Funerals for all their assistance and service for my father's funeral last week, everything they promised was delivered from our first phone call/meeting through to the funeral service. They also arranged the civil celebrant Phillip Brown. It was exactly what we wanted with their caring service and attention to detail.
The funeral service conducted by Afterlife Funeral was a touching and memorable occasion from start to finish.
The funeral director Scott and his staff were not only doing their job but showing genuine compassion throughout the service to all guests and members of my ex-partner's friends and family. Their attention to the detail was exceptional and helped turn an otherwise a sad occasion into a positive celebration of life.
