Communication with family was excellent and could not fault any aspect of service. Many thanks from the family. 

Mandy Fitzgerald 21st Jul 2020

So helpful and understanding from start to finish. Everyone commented on how good the service was carried out.

Lorraine Howell 20th Jul 2020

John Haddrick was very easy to deal with. He accepted any suggestions( not that there were many, as he had covered all the bases.)   His manner was both polite and friendly. The services offered-music, slide show, early cremation for Bill, selection of a celebrant and choice of a venue in these difficult times was invaluable. The streaming service was much appreciated by the many people who took advantage of it.        Thank you John,     Lorraine Howell.

About Us

Christine and John Haddrick and their compassionate team are on call 24 hours a day for bereaved families, providing caring funeral services in Wangaratta and across North East of Victoria.

This funeral home has been serving families in Wangaratta and beyond since 1970 and is proud to be a part of the community it serves.

At a very difficult time, North East Funerals supports families from the moment they call, as they prepare to say goodbye to their loved one. Bereavement support is available on request, as the team helps families to plan a funeral that’s fitting, according to faith, lifestyle or tradition.

Whether you choose to honour your loved one with a traditional service, green funeral, or wish to celebrate their life in a unique and uplifting way, North East Funerals supports and listens to bereaved families. Its Greta Road premises has its own bright and beautiful chapel for ceremonies, with refreshments available and parking for mourners on site. Floral tributes can be handmade according to family wishes, while environmental coffins are among the funeral choices to consider.

The Wangaratta funeral directors are experienced in funeral repatriation and can also support families wishing to bring a loved one home to Victoria for their funeral. They are also glad to help families seeking an alternative outdoor space to hold a celebration of life – if it’s legal, they will find a way to arrange this for you. It’s important to them that every funeral fulfills the family’s wish.

North East Funerals includes a classic 1975 Ford XA hearse among the funeral transport it offers, while memorial books, urns and keepsakes are also available. This funeral home is a member of the Australian Funeral Directors Association.

    As a family we would like to express our sincere thanks to Northeast Funerals for their wonderful service leading up to and including the burial. A special thanks must go to Mark who displayed great compassion and professionalism at every stage - much appreciated.

    John and his team were so helpful and made the hard job of arranging mum's funeral so easy for us. Everything was as she would have wanted it and I can't recommend them highly enough.

  • 5 Helen Champlin 22nd Mar 2020

    Mark & Lisa were excellent to deal with. Mark made himself very accessible and was able to accommodate our needs. Lisa dealt with my daughter to compile our information she was also very easy to work with.

  • 5 Lynn Allan 9th Feb 2020

    Very professional. Mark went out of his way to help us with the planning of the Service. Sadly we have dealt with Northeast Funerals before and we have never been disappointed with them.

    Second time I have utilised the services of this company and I could not be happier with the service

  • 5 Tania Campbell 19th Jan 2020

    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. 

  • 5 Tamara Plattner 2nd Jan 2020

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

  • 4 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 Steve Beel 29th Dec 2019

    Very professional and respectful service. 

  • 4 Monica Claney 22nd Dec 2019

  • 5 Elizabeth Crews 22nd Dec 2019

    We were all very happy with the services provided

  • 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 :)
