Arranging high quality Orthodox Funerals since 1990
In a very difficult time for families, the professionalism of the team at Orthodox Funerals was outstanding. Any question we had or something we forgot to do, they had it covered. The process of losing a loved one is overwhelming but we had Orthodox Funerals by our side.
We appreciate everything you did for our family. Thank you from the Alavanja Family. (February, 2021)
The attention to detail, adherence and respect of Orthodox and Serbian traditions, the care provided to my late father and our entire family and the overall beauty of the entire funeral ceremony for my father was unmatched in all of Australia. My father would be so proud of the funeral we deservedly provided for him thanks to Antony at Orthodox Funerals. I would recommend his services to anybody who wants to organise only the highest quality funeral for their loved one. (November, 2020)
Losing our beautiful mum has been the most difficult time of our lives. Antony guided us through the whole process with utmost care, sympathy, respect and kindness. His attention to our needs was outstanding, always reassuring and always willing to give up his time. If you are in this situation look no further, Antony’s service is unique and genuinely caring. He takes care of everything. Thank you so much for being there Antony!! Yours sincerely, Milena and family. (November, 2020)

The Orthodox Way
“Death is swallowed up in victory.” (1 Cor. 15:54)
The most profound loss occurs with the death of a loved one. Death, anticipated or sudden, is capable of devastating those left behind. It may thrust the bereaved into a mix of physical and emotional responses: sorrow, anxiety, tears, anger, regret, and disbelief, among others. Grief is an expression of our enduring love for one another, a love that continues even in their absence: “Love has no measure. It is infinite” (Mother Gavrilia, An Ascetic of Love).
How to deal with the grieving process
The liturgical rhythm of prayers, services, and customs of the Orthodox Faith serve to transform our grief and lead us into deeper communion with Christ. To learn more about the traditional Orthodox Funeral Service and Memorials click here.
