What can I ask our Coonamble funeral directors to do when I am organising a funeral?

Organising a funeral can be a daunting task. But you can rely on the help of funeral directors to help you through the process and provide you with caring advice and direction at all times. From providing information over the phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the removal of a body, liaising with clergy or celebrants, conducting the funeral, organising the making of headstones, making arrangements for the cremation or burial of the body and much more. At Philpott Funerals, our Coonamble funeral directors and undertakers will take away any unnecessary distress from the process of dealing with a funeral home and making funeral arrangements.
