Dale, Beth Robinson left a review for Heritage Brady Funeral Directors & Crematorium
Thank you, another family member.

Our elderly Mother just passed and as Heritage Funerals have professionally handled all our previous loved ones, we entrusted Chris & Brett Heritage to do the same for our dear Mother. Once again they have excelled in their care, friendship, compassion & utmost respect & dignity for our loved one all at an affordable cost as 400+ attended the service. Anyone searching for a friendly, professional Funeral Home, we highly recommend Chris, Brett & family from Heritages Funerals. We express our heartfelt thanks & appreciation for the care extended to our dear Mother as they made us feel we were one of their family. DM & EC Robinson.

Wonderful caring friendly staff support.

They're always giving you more support and services.

Common questions about funeral directors

What happens when someone dies in a hospital or nursing home?

If death occurs at a public hospital, hospital staff will take care of all relevant formalities. At a nursing home, more onus falls on the family.

When is a coroner needed?

When death occurs due to non-natural causes including violence, accidental, unusual causes, and unexpected death.

What is the first thing I need to do when a death occurs?

Whether a death occurs at home, in hospital or in a public place, the first person who should be contacted is generally the person’s doctor. A doctor must certify that death has occurred. Normally funeral arrangements cannot be completed until the doctor has signed and issued a Death Certificate. The Funeral Director can then take the deceased into their care. In Australia the great majority of deaths occur in hospital or other care facilities, in which case those authorities take care of the medical formalities. In certain instances it may not be legally possible for the doctor to issue a Death Certificate and there is necessity for police and coronial involvement. We would advise that you contact the relevant authorities for full details as regulations do vary from state to state.

What is embalming?

Embalming is carried out by a qualified embalmer and is a chemical treatment of a body which disinfects and preserves it.

How do I get a Death Certificate?

Death certificates are issued by the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages in your state. Once the death is registered a certificate will be issued.

How much choice does the family have in funeral arrangements?

The family has absolute choice in all of the funeral arrangements. There are only a few rare exceptions due the coronial investigations.

Who is responsible for arranging a funeral?

It is most common for the executor named in the will, or for family members or friends to arrange a funeral in conjunction with a funeral director.

How long between death and the committal service?

The length of time between death and the committal service can vary depending on your instructions and the circumstances of the death.

Who should I notify after a death has occurred?

After friends and family, you’ll need to notify your loved one’s bank, service providers, the post office and any subscriptions, at the very least.

The place to find the best funeral directors in Cairns.

When someone dies, it is important for people to be able to gather to pay their respects, and to give and receive support from one another. A Cairns funeral and cremation business can organise the finer details of the service, providing a safe, comfortable place to express grief and allow you to share your feelings of loss. If the death is due to natural causes, it is advisable to call the funeral director as soon as possible. A funeral director is trained to support you in the first period of mourning, when you may be in shock and unable to think clearly. It’s not expected that you will make every decision on your first meeting, but certain details like a day, time and place for the ceremony and the type of funeral will need to be decided on fairly quickly. Remember some people who live out of town may wish to attend and will need time to make travel arrangements. You may meet with the funeral director a couple of times. Decisions to be made involve the type of coffin, what sort of flowers you would like displayed, music, photos or video for the service and how you will make the death announcement – whether it will be via internet or newspaper, and costs. You will also be asked to bring clothes to dress your loved one, and makeup. The funeral director may ask for a photo to help when preparing for the service. A viewing is a personal choice but taking one last time to see your loved one before their funeral can help the grieving process. Funeral services can be held almost anywhere. Most are held, traditionally, in a church, but many ceremonies are being held at home or in a favourite setting, or held graveside. More and more ceremonies are being tailored to the individual with funeral directors helping grieving families create fitting, personalised tributes, while also organising all the service suppliers and settling accounts on your behalf. The funeral home will also apply through the Department of Births, Deaths and Marriages for legal documentation. A death certificate is required to finalise the estate. There is no specific time frame for Cairns funerals and cremations. If a funeral must be delayed for more than four weeks, there will need to be an embalming. The ceremony can be held around three days after a death. If there has been a coronial enquiry it may take around five days. If the death is in a hospital or nursing home, the facility will arrange the forms for the funeral director. If the death was in hospital, staff may also ask permission to carry out an autopsy. When someone dies due to an accident, police must be notified so a coroner can decide if an autopsy is in order. More people are considering cremation but, if you choose to be buried, a grave plot can be ordered by the funeral director. If a family already owns a grave plot, the grave may need to be reopened.
