Details of the Funeral Services currently in our care
Please note that Private Funerals may not always be published.
As the situation is constantly changing we would suggest that you watch for updated
funeral arrangements on our website where details are updated immediately.
As per Government advice there is a current restriction of one person every four metres square.
From Monday 1st June the maximum funeral attendance is 50 people for both indoor and outdoor services,
these numbers do not include the Nielsen Funerals staff, the minister or celebrant or those necessary to the conduct
of the funeral service.
The maximum number of people able to attend an indoor funeral service is dependent on the size of the venue,
four square metres must be allowed per person. This means that smaller Churches and venues will have a limited capacity, our Nielsen Funeral Chapel is large enough to accommodate 50 people within the Chapel while maintaining
the current social distancing requirements.
If you are experiencing flu like symptoms, have recently returned from overseas
or have been in contact with someone who has.
It would be strongly suggested that you reconsider attending for the health and safety of others.
For those attending funeral Services, we ask that you practice social distancing
(avoiding hand to hand contact, hugs and kisses, etc).
Our primary concern is for the well being of the families we serve, their loved ones,
the community and our staff members.
Funeral Services held in our Nielsen Funeral Chapel can be live-streamed with the permission of the family at no charge.
Services at external venues can also be live-streamed.
All services can also be recorded and copies given to the family to share with relatives and friends unable to attend.
If you are unable to attend a funeral service you are very welcome to use our website to send a condolence message,
either private or public, which will then be forwarded to the family.
A digital copy of service booklets and keepsake cards can also be emailed to those unable to attend
funeral services by emailing email@example.com please state the name of the person
whose booklet or keepsake you would like and we will forward it to you when possible.
We are confident that we can continue to provide full and dignified funeral services for our community.
We thank you and if you have an queries, please do not hesitate to contact our office on 5623 2771
