  • Thank you for all you have done for our family over the recent years.
    You are all caring, compassionate, happy and it comes across that you all love your chosen profession.
    It is more than a job to you all and it shows.

    Thank you once again.

  • I thought I’d write to express appreciation of the wonderful way your firm conducted the funeral of my Aunt. It was the best service I’ve been to, mainly due to your professional conduct. From the very start, having the door opened by one of your staff, being able to sign the condolence book without standing in line, and the outlay of the room. You certainly took care of everything. When, in the future I have to seek funeral services, I shall look no further than your company.

  • Please thank Ian and your team for the beautifully professional way they conducted our mother’s funeral yesterday, and the work that they did beforehand. It was much appreciated and we felt we were in very capable hands.

    I also very much appreciated the printed ‘thank you’ notes that I can send to the people who supported us. It’s a task I’m usually hopeless at but think that I can do it easily thanks to you!

Why funerals matter?

Funerals are an important rite of passage in our journey of life, not just for the people we are saying goodbye to,

but for those of us who are left behind.

For thousands of years, in addition to offering a way to respectfully farewell someone we love.

Funerals have been a means of expressing our beliefs, thoughts and feelings about life and death.

FAQ's

It is natural that you may be unsure of what to do when a death occurs in your family. We understand that the last thing that you want to think about is arranging a funeral however we do recommend that you contact us as soon as possible, so that we can assist you through all stages of the procedure.

When someone dies, a doctor must sign a certificate that confirms the death. Funeral arrangements cannot be completed until the doctor has signed and issued this certificate (generally called a death certificate).

At a time suitable to you, we can arrange the funeral details either at our funeral home or at your own residence. There is no set timeframe between death and the funeral service, however, our experience suggests that you allow more time than less. Normally this is at least four to five days. When the funeral is over you will be thankful that you allowed yourself enough time to create a fitting farewell for your loved one.

We believe that the role of the funeral director is to guide and assist families in order to provide a funeral experience that meets the needs and desires of the bereaved family, and we will do our utmost to achieve this.

Our caring staff will sit with you and discuss the many options you have for a funeral service for your loved one or yourself. Many haven’t thought about burial or cremation and reality it’s a personal choice. No two funerals are the same, and we will assist to tailor your wishes to suit you or your loved one to have a meaningful and fulfilling funeral service.

Coping with the loss of a close friend or family member may be one of the hardest things that many of us face. Everyone reacts differentially to death and employs personal coping mechanisms for grief. Research shows that most people can recover from loss on their own through the passage of time if they have social support and healthy habits. It may take many months or years to come to terms with a loss. There is no “normal” time period for someone to grieve.

There are many qualified grief counsellors in the Bendigo area, who are available to assist you. Mulqueen Family Funeral Directors can refer you to qualified health care professionals in this field.

Some people may struggle with grief for longer periods of time and feel unable to carry out daily activities. These individuals could benefit from professional help that could be provided by one of the organisations below.

Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement:

One of the most thoughtful things one can do for your family is to pre-pay for your funeral. This act of fore-thought can help reduce the stress that can be associated with planning a loved ones funeral service. The procedure can be as simple or detailed as you desire and we will help ensure that, as closely as possible, your wishes are carried out when the time comes.
