We found North East Funerals excellent to deal with. We were bringing Mum home to Wangaratta from Cairns in Far North Queensland and Mark could not have been more helpful. Any questions I had were always welcomed and answered, the graveside service was beautiful and just how we imagined it to be.

Thank you for making a very sad time as stress free as possible. Everyone was extremely professional & caring.

John Huett 1st Jan 2020

Everything organised very well and staff very friendly and helpful. Slightly disappointed that RSL part of the service could not be fulfilled by RSL staff although NE Funerals did a good job of improvising. It was noted that it was not acknowledged in the funeral Director's eulogy, that Fred was a great, great grandfather to the newest member of the family a baby girl. Disappointment expressed by the father of the child and other family members. It was however acknowledged-mentioned that he was a grandfather and great grandfather. Otherwise, everything went to plan and we appreciated receiving a copy of the service directly following the event.

  • 5 Natalie Kelly 19th Dec 2019

    Mark, John and the team have been great for both times we have needed their services this year. They were accommodating for an outside service earlier in the year and were also able to do a simple service with only 48 hours notice. I would highly recommend North East Funerals, although I hope to not need their services in the near future :)

  • 5 Ash Power 19th Nov 2019

    The only issue, and it is minor, is that the wording in the service guide did not match the taped version. That could have been done.

  • 5 Sandra Tanner 26th Oct 2019

    Our family was extremely impressed with the gentle and  seemless handling of all areas of mums funeral. (Marie Ruaro) A very special mention to John for his attention to detail, caring  and very respectful nature. It felt like he knew exactly what we wanted and his sincerity was genuine. We never felt rushed, but rather cues were taken from the family. We can’t speak more highly of John and his patient and caring manner.  Reception  lady was caring and respectful. There was a sense of peace and calm at the office.  Thank you so much for making a difficult time less stressful by being in the hands of those who quietly achieve.  Kind regards, Sandra Tanner

  • 5 Hazel Bright 20th Aug 2019

    It was a beautiful service and thank you 🙏🏼 

  • 5 Anne Gillard 15th Aug 2019

     We were impressed by the personal empathy and kindness shown to us by John, Mark and staff.  All stages of our family’s funeral preparation were handled with skill and sensitivity.  I was clearly informed of how all stages of the service and burial would take place, and all went very smoothly despite the inclement weather. Music, the visual tribute and seating at the chapel were arranged and seamlessly delivered. I did find that proofreading of the funeral booklet was too rushed at the last minute, resulting in some typos remaining in print.  A fresh eye in-house should proofread and correct, so that only a very rare correction might remain to be made by the client.  In all other respects my brothers and I were very satisfied with the funeral services provided by North- East Funerals.

  • 5 Karyn Edkins 13th Aug 2019

  • 5 Lea Smillie 9th Jul 2019

    Mark is the right person in the right job....very obliging.

  • 5 Mathew Vonarx 28th Jun 2019

    Everything was organised with no hassle. John kept in contact the right amount so we were up to date on what needed to be done without getting in our way. On the day of the funeral, he team arrived when they said they would and set a beautiful room. John hit the mark in his approach and his words, exactly what we were hoping for. This team is a cut above.
