Held in a traditional church or other place of worship with a priest, minister, pastor etc. With the option to have a cremation after the service or a graveside service.

Giving the option for a memorial service with extended relatives, friends and guests in our function lounge.

Over the 25 years of Danielle & Christopher’s funeral services experience we have identified a shift in our industry – Church & Chapel services are becoming too expensive & people are choosing memorial services to save money & for a more personal & intimate farewell for their loved one.

We offer a complimentary Australian cedar carved ash urn for your loved ones ashes and we will deliver them to your home personally in our limousine.

Memorial Service

Memorial Services are Remembrance events held for a deceased person whose body is not present, typically preferred following a cremation. Like funerals, memorial services may be religious or nonreligious, spiritual or nondenominational.

Headstones & Monuments

We have our own stonemasons who can create a personalised monument to pay tribute to a life well lived.

Kristian Jennings

I can't say enough good things about Chris and Danielle - the care and compassion they showed to everybody but most of all to my 17 year old son has been just incredible, they have been completely professional whilst at the same time understanding that he was still just a kid who lost his dad, who sometimes just needed a hug, for that I will be eternally grateful.

Kim Patterson

Amazing !!! Danielle and Chris are kind, caring and professional . They couldn't do enough for us I have never had such a wonderful experience around the death of a loved one and truly thank them both for that . We are so lucky to have such wonderful people in our nambucca valley.

Tamara McWilliam

A wonderful professional and personal service. Chris and Danni accommodate all and any family requests without question or problem; whilst at the same time guiding and supporting bereaved attendees subtly and with compassion. The empathy and before and after support makes NVF the perfect choice for such an emotionally difficult and overwhelming time. I congratulate them and commend them to all in our local community.

Deb Truskett

I cannot say enough about Chris and Danny. All through our entire experience we could not have been in better hands. They are the kindest and most caring people. I thank you both from the bottom of my heart for making such a sad day so beautiful..
