Tender Funerals - Tender Funerals is a not-for-profit funeral service that offers choice and transparency in delivering personalised, meaningful and affordable funerals in times that can create financial or emotional distress.

Every person is unique, and their funeral should reflect this. We provide a range of services across after death care, funeral/celebration arrangements and body disposal options – many based on sustainable principles – which enable you to have a much greater say in how your loved one is treated after death.

A community venture, we operate in ways they do not leave community members with large debt. We don’t take shortcuts and always put people and relationships first.

We encourage practices that promote healing, including participating in any aspects of the funeral processes should you chose. For those who want to participate in this last significant rite of passage, it can be an enriching and life-affirming experience. Or, should you prefer, we can care for your loved one on your behalf.

Community Empowerment and Education

Tender Funerals is part of a community movement towards reclaiming the rites around death and dying. Offering education around your rights and responsibilities and the opportunity for open conversation, we hope to empower people to take control of their dying, their deaths and their funerals.
