I was impressed with the service we received and Nikki was a great help and support. It was fantastic to have all of the technical details arranged, especially as we had to organise so much online due to being interstate. There were a few minor communication challenges but overall we were very happy with the service. Thank you Nikki and team.

Jackson and his team at Hepner Funerals were very professional in the handling of my Mother Dorothy McNamara arrangements in both Geelong and Warrnambool. Highly recommend Jonathan Hepner Funerals.

About Us

As a family-run funeral home, Jonathan Hepner Funerals’ caring team understand that a bereavement can be a very difficult and uncertain time for families. Their role is to listen and it a little easier for bereaved families in Geelong to focus on their loved one, with the reassurance their wishes will be carried out with compassion and respect.

Jonathan Hepner Funerals can help arrange a funeral that is truly fitting for your loved one, according to faith, tradition, culture or lifestyle. Their focus is on providing a funeral that’s meaningful – whether that’s a traditional funeral with horse-drawn hearse or sedan, or a celebration of life via Harley motorcycle hearse on the beach.

The Geelong funeral home can help you to arrange a fully catered and personalised funeral service in an indoor venue or outdoor space that holds special significance to your family. Its Ormond Road premises also has its own bright and modern chapel, with parking on site for mourners. Audio-visual equipment is available to record and livestream funerals, enabling family members who love further away to be a part of a loved one’s goodbye.

The funeral is a significant stage in the grieving process, with counselling available to Geelong families after the service has taken place. Its grief counsellor is there to listen should you need to talk and will contact you after the funeral to offer support.

As an active member of the Australian Funeral Directors Association, Jonathan Hepner Funerals adheres to the standards and guidelines that this respected organisation maintains.

The caring team at Jonathan Hepner Funerals is on call 24 hours a day throughout the year. Call them at any time, day or night, for compassionate support when it is most needed.

  • 5 Wayne Schulz 12th Sep 2020

    Hi folks at Jonathan Hepner Funerals, Most impressed with the dignity and professional manner presented in the conducting of the funeral last Tuesday to provide Iris a fitting and solemn "farewell". Also, was impressed with the use of lead singers in the recorded hymn music, which due to the restricted attendance, was a welcome initiative. Many thanks go the staff, especially Nikki, to which it was a pleasure to liaise with and the helpful assistance received. Sincerely, Wayne Schulz

  • 5 Lilian Topic 11th Sep 2020

    I could not recommend Jonathan Hepner funerals enough, particularly Stefan Marzigales our Director. He navigated so many challenges, and our sadness and vulnerability at this time to organise a beautiful send off for my dear dad. Stefan took on so many things to make the process easier and by the end even though I had never met Stefan before I felt like dad's funeral was organised by an old friend - respectful, thoughtful and the consummate professional. Our heartfelt thanks for your guidance, advice and direction. Lilian and family.

    I have nothing but complete praise for Stefan and his team. They did an amazing job from the minute I made initial contact with them. During the current restrictions, they all went above and beyond and they were in contact every step of the way. Nothing was too much trouble and everything went to plan on the day. A big thank you for making a hard day a little bit easier.

  • 5 Jenny Palmer 23rd Aug 2020

    Jackson and the other staff were all genuine and thoughtful to deal with. Everything was beautifully done and well organised. Many people also commented how excellent the quality of the streaming of the service was, which was important due to the pandemic restrictions.

    We found Jonathan Hepner Funerals to be an enormous support to us. They were responsive to our requirements, flexible in their approach and technologically savvy; all of which we felt were critical to us as we sought to craft a funeral in difficult times. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.

    Jackson Hepner was exceptional in all aspects of ensuring our son James Coppola was laid to rest. And his support staff were also very professional. I am very glad we went with Jonathan Hepners funeral service.

  • 5 Robert Hemmings 3rd Aug 2020

    We as a family could not have been any more supported and therefore impressed with JHF and in particular Stefan M. With the added complexity of COVID-19 and with 2 Direct family members (Sons) unable to attend due to interstate restrictions and Victorian hotspot restrictions, Stefan was able to pull together a logistical nightmare into a seamless, caring and Professional outcome allowing the family to focus on each other. The times we live in are uncertain at the best of times, but when you have the distance issues and sadness of not being able to attend, Stefan was just amazing. Also with the complexity around online/digital requirements Stefan was able to guide us through given the emotional state we were in.  Highly recommended. Rob Hemmings

    Johnathan Hepner funerals were a great choice.  From the very first meeting, we knew we had made a good choice.  You are made to feel very comfortable with discussions and questions about the whole funeral process. We were extremely happy with the beautiful service held at their private chapel.
