Hepner’s staff were very supportive during a difficult time. Their staff provided a great service and arrangements were straight forward. The addition of video link made it possible for overseas family to join.

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.

    I was very appreciative of Nikki and Michelle. Their support during this really difficult time was fabulous. I especially appreciated that I could contact Nikki at any time. Tony Townsend was of great support to us too. He delivered a very personal celebration of Mum's life with just the right balance. I was very pleased that Mum was already in your care when I rang early Tuesday morning. I felt that the service was a great celebration of Mum's life and was really happy with the venue. It was very private and the luncheon was plentiful. I especially liked that we could be inside and outside. We have had lots of compliments about her service and the venue. Once again, thank you for all your support and guidance during this time.

Every detail of the service was handled beautifully and he was able to give advice that enabled all of our wishes to be fulfilled. I can’t recommend Jonathan Hepner Funerals highly enough.

    Nikki was amazing!! Nothing was too difficult for her. She helped us organise a wonderful send off for our dad and made the experience as enjoyable as a funeral can be! A number of our close family friends and those who were interstate commented on how wonderful the presentation was and how smoothly everything ran. I will not hesitate to recommend Nikki in the future and my sister Nicole has already told me and Nikki herself she would like her to organise her Geelong Football themed funeral! Thank you again Nikki for your support, kindness and compassion we really appreciated it. Katrina and Nicole Lehman
