OUR CHAPEL FACILITIES
The Nielsen Funeral Chapel
Warragul & Drouin Funeral Chapel
Our Nielsen Funeral Chapel overlooks our beautiful gardens providing a peaceful setting for
any type of funeral service.
The Chapel is light and spacious and provides comfortable seating with our foyer area providing additional space when required. The chapel is able to accommodate a large number of people and is equally suitable for smaller funerals.
The Chapel is located a short distance from both exit ramps off the Princes Highway making it very easy to locate for family and friends travelling.
The Chapel is a separate building away from our administration offices ensuring absolute privacy.
Our state of the art sound system ensures that every spoken memory, tribute and chosen piece of music can be heard clearly throughout the chapel. For families choosing to add a visual tribute to their service a large projected image can be displayed at the front of the chapel, large and clear enough for all to see. The foyer also has a large plasma screen.
Our large asphalted car park provides parking space for more than 70 cars with an adjoining car park for more than another 80 cars. The chapel has additional dedicated reserved family parking ensuring that all family members are able to park together, directly behind the hearse using a separate driveway.
Our newly built Chapel Function Room can be used for refreshments following the memorial service with full kitchen and catering facilities available.
The spacious Hall located right next to our chapel can also be used for refreshments.
We are able to assist with all of your catering needs with the help of our amazing caterer,
Helen Hateley and her team.
The Chapel features a hearing induction loop as well as full disabled access and facilities.
For families choosing not to carry the coffin from the chapel at the end of the funeral service we offer a committal facility, where a curtain can slowly close in front of the coffin to conclude the service.
The Service can be recorded as a complimentary keepsake using four cameras discretely positioned around the chapel ensuring that the service be memorialised as a lasting keepsake and perhaps to share with family and friends who may not have been able to attend the funeral.
We also offer a Webcasting option at no additional cost. Webcasting means that a funeral can
be watched live on the internet by any family and/or friends unable to attend the service.
A traditional timber cross sits on the front wall of the Chapel which can be removed on request. An electric organ is also available.
