The Stages of The Journey

The process of arranging a funeral can be a daunting and emotional one and in order to help you find the information you need during this difficult time, we have broken up The Funeral Journey into 5 key stages. Each stage is designed to provide important and relevant information when you need it most.

Remember that no matter what stage of the journey you are in, our team of dedicated and understanding professionals are here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to guide and support you in any way we can.

1
Planning Ahead

While no-one wants to think about their death, pre-planning your funeral gives you the peace of mind to know that when the time comes, your family will be guided with professional support, providing a much-needed sense of comfort.

2
Time Of Death

Few of us are prepared when a death occurs and we often need support and assistance both at the initial time of death and throughout the funeral planning process, as well as continued support as we come to terms with the loss.

3
The Funeral Arrangement

A funeral service is the customary way to recognise death and allows us to honour and show respect for the dead as well as to help those left behind begin the process of grief recovery.

4
The Funeral Service

A funeral ceremony helps to publicly acknowledge the reality of the death, and when shared with friends and family it encourages the expression of grief.

5
After The Funeral

Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s important to remember that grief and mourning is a process and not an event.

Modern, Purpose Built Facilities, Two Locations.

Our spacious, modern chapel is located in Chelsea Heights and is surrounded by beautiful garden areas to bring a sense of peace and tranquility. Fully equipped with professional sound, display equipment and refreshments can be served following the service in the area adjoining our chapel, overlooking the elegant private garden.

We Cater for all Cultures and Religions

Gateway Funerals recognises and respects Melbourne’s diverse cultural and religious communities which is why we can offer so many types of services to farewell your loved one. Be assured, we are experienced in caring for people from a diverse range of cultures so you can feel secure that funeral planning matches your needs.

We’re Involved with our Local Community

For many years, Gateway Funerals has been an active member of the community sponsoring many local clubs, sports people and events and fundraising for important community sector projects and drives. We consider our role in the community a privilege and ensure we support any community endeavour that matches our values as much as we can, where possible.

Testimonials

“Just a letter of thanks for the professional way you conducted our fathers funeral.
From the first phone call, to inquire how to take our Dad from the nursing home into your care, and then the appointment with you, the whole sad occasion has been seamless and thoroughly professional from the outset.

We are glad we chose Gateway to handle the funeral, as every detail was taken care of, and the service was just the best and your choice of civil celebrant, we could not have wished for a better send off for Dad.

The car was on time. The Aussie flag on Dads coffin was a great thought, and the way you all helped Isobel, to and from the service was first class.

I will recommend your company to anyone that has to go through the sadness and loss and then arrange a funeral, for a loved one, your professionalism and attention to detail, took all those arrangements out of our mind at such a sad time.

Thank you again to everyone.”
