Can't recommend Jackson and Jonathan Hepner Funerals highly enough. They were caring, respectful and helped ensure both Gwenda's and her husband's (previously) funerals were exactly as both they and the family wished.

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.

    Stefan was amazing from start to finish. We will be forever grateful for his help in navigating the passing of our father. He knows to ask the sorts of things you wish you'd have thought of. Nothing is too much trouble. Nothing is forgotten. Everything is perfect and we were left feeling that our father got the farewell that he deserved.

  • 5 Ken Crawford 16th Apr 2020

    Although only a few people were allowed to attend, I feel the funeral went very well. Everything that needed to be reflected upon was covered. I'm sure there were many people who were disapointed in not being able to be there, but it was kind of intimate with less people. I am completely happy with the outcome.

  • 5 Thomas Bauer 13th Apr 2020

    Couldn't be happier with the service. We had 2 funerals in 2 weeks and each was conducted with the utmost professionalism and even more importantly compassion

    From the moment I first met Stefan, I knew we were in goods hand with arranging the Funeral of our Aunty. Stefan and staff made the sad situation a celebration of our Aunties life. Every detail was covered and the funeral was a fitting send off, more than what we could have wished for. A special thank you to Stefan and Jonathan Hepner Funerals.

  • 5 Chris Browne 24th Feb 2020

    Jonathon was amazing!  He was so supportive, understanding and provided advice when needed.  I found him so easy to work with and the funeral turned out to be everything my father would have wanted.  Jonathon was very respectful and at the wake rolled up his sleeves and served food.  The family cannot thank him enough for making our first family passing the best it could be under the circumstances.  Would recommend Jonathon to everyone.
