Can’t thank Jonathan and Nikki and team at Hepner’s enough for the care and compassion they showed after dad passed away. Dean and Anita were amazing the night dad died when they came to collect him and Nikki was so patient and helpful in planning funeral. Can not praise them enough! Thank you for making it easier to say good bye to our beloved dad

We were extremely happy with the quality of service we received from Jonathan Hepner funerals! Stefan was thoughtful and respectful to our mothers wishes and nothing was to much bother! On the day Jonathon was on hand which was a nice touch as our father had worked with him on many occasions! Would highly recommend to anyone who asked about their loved ones 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.

    We are so thankful to Nikki and the team for being so personable and understanding during a very difficult time for our family. The rosary, funeral and burial were all done with such professionalism and compassion and we couldn't be more thankful for giving our Dad the send off he deserved. Would highly recommend Johnathon Hepner.

  • 5 Sharron Schultz 9th Nov 2019

    To Jonathan and staff, we are giving a 5 star rating for the funeral service you arranged for our daughter and Adam's partner on 11th November. Every aspect met all of our wishes and the feedback we have received from family and friends could not have been more positive. With all your help we were able to say goodbye to our Andrea in a manner that I know she would have also given a 5 star rating. Everyone involved listened to our wishes and guided us towards a wonderful celebration of Andrea's life. With Thanks Sharron & Rob Schultz & family & Adam & Family

    Words aren't enough to convey our gratitude for the wonderful service provided by Jackson and his team. Jackson is a caring, patient and extremely professional person whose dedication to his craft in helping us through the bereavement process was a blessing. In addition, we were so impressed by the technology he was able to implement to live stream the service so grand daughters in the UK could participate and also the recording we have, the memorial book and photographic memories on DVD. We are so happy we chose Jonathan Hepner Funerals, family and friends were equally impressed with the service and commented. The service was in Melbourne and he and his team handled everything for us.

  • 5 Chris Middleton 25th Aug 2019

    Having to arrange a funeral quickly for a loved one is a daunting task when their passing was sudden and unexpected. Jonathan Hepner Funerals made it all happen quickly with no fuss and in a caring and dignified manner. We couldn't have had a better send off for our much loved Husband, Father, Pop ... and Pop Pop. Thankyou to everyone at Hepners for their caring and compassion and putting together such a beautiful service in such a short time. On behalf of Fred's family, Thankyou!

    The care and consideration that was given to our family from the team from the beginning right through to after the service was highly appreciated. Everyone was very professional and very caring, especially Nikki who was a pleasure to work with and delivered everything we could have asked for. We couldn’t speak more highly of the service received. Thank you again

  • 5 David Kilfoyle 5th Aug 2019

    I cannot speak highly enough of Jonathan Hepner Funeral services. They were supportive and considerate of all our needs during an emotional and turbulent time. Their arrangements were made with a minimum of fuss and were carried out impeccably.

  • 5 Stephen Kilpatrick 31st Jul 2019

    The rating 'excellent' barely does justice to the wonderful care and guidance and the 'extra mile' we experienced in the attentiveness of Nikki and her team. The TimTams certainly 'wowed' us or at least the fact that they were sourced after the mention of mums love for timtams during the tributes time. I personally was quite staggered by the beauty of both the sanctuary and the afternoon tea arrangements when I walked in. And I understand JHFs has a great relationship with East Geelong Uniting Church here. Guys, you blessed us wonderfully. Thank you.
