Guide to Funeral Directors in Brisbane
As the capital city of the Australian state of Queensland, Brisbane is located on the Brisbane River, near Moreton Bay. Greater Brisbane has a population of nearly 3.5 million people, the third-biggest population in Australia, as well as being one of the oldest cities.
Providing funeral services to the bereaved in Brisbane are approximately 10 funeral directors, distributed across the city and the surrounding areas.
The majority of Brisbane’s residents identify as Roman Catholic (roughly 24 per cent), alongside a high proportion of Anglicans (16 per cent). Funeral directors in Brisbane are likely to be well-acquainted with the funeral rituals and practices of these Christian denominations. Also significant in Brisbane’s population is the number of Asian Australians. The city has the largest population of Taiwanese Australians in Australia, and the second largest population of Korean Australians. Therefore Brisbane funeral directors may also be able to provide funeral services in-keeping with these cultures' traditions.
Brisbane has one of the highest proportions of indigenous Australians and Torres Strait Islanders of any city in Australia. Therefore funeral directors in Brisbane may have experience meeting the spiritual needs of different indigenous cultures and a variety of religious beliefs.
Brisbane City Council manages 12 cemeteries and three crematoria in and around the city. Three of these cemeteries, Hemmant, Mount Gravatt and Pinnaroo, have burial plots available for purchase, while the other nine are historical graveyards with very limited burial options. The City Council also states that their cemeteries are developed in collaboration with various different religious organisations and members of the city’s Italian, Croatian and Asian communities, to ensure that everyone’s spiritual and cultural needs are catered to.
