Testimonials

Thoughtful Funerals

Faye, Nikki and the team at Mid West Funerals are dedicated to helping you create a thoughtful funeral. We give you, family and friends meaning through reflection and acknowledgement. We’ll help you through this challenging time by discussing options, ideas and we’ll support you through decisions.

If you’ve lost a loved one or thinking about pre-planning your own funeral, it’s quite normal to wonder what happens next.

Read our below explainers for answers to questions that might be on your mind.

The choice of burial or cremation is one of the most personal. If you’ve lost a love one, you might already know their preference – they might have told you or written it in their Will. When you’re aware of their wishes, all you need to do is tell us. We take care of the rest.

If you’re uncertain or thinking about your own funeral, we’ll help by showing you the differences.

Speak to Faye or Nikki at Mid West Funerals for more information on your preferred type of committal.

Burial

Burials can involve a committal to the ground and provide family and friends a final opportunity for farewell and reflection.

As burials have a physical site, they can be marked with a headstone, visited and tributes laid.

Typically more expensive than a cremation (depending on your shire).

Grant of Burial lasts for 25 years in Western Australia. After this term, a renewal is possible for a further 25 years at an additional cost (charged by the relevant cemetery).

Cremation

Ashes of your loved one can be relocated, shared, kept or scattered.

Scattering of ashes can provide an intimate family farewell at a time and place of your choosing.

Beautiful urns in a variety of styles, colours and materials are available.

A Bio Urn option is available with your choice of selected plant seeds.

Funeral services are an important time for reflection and the celebration of a special life lived. Because funeral services can include eulogies, poems; memories shared by family members; passages and more, having a service leader helps to bring it all together.

A funeral service is typically lead by a service officiant. This role can be fulfilled by anyone including a Celebrant, Minister, friend or family member. At Mid West Funerals around 70% of families choose a celebrant.

Faye and Nikki at Mid West Funerals are Authorised Celebrants and will be honoured to lead your service. Whether Celebrant, Minister, family member or friend; we’ll organise everyone involved.

Speak to Faye or Nikki to discuss your service officiant options.

Celebrant

Celebrants are authorised professionals; trained to meet the wishes and needs of the deceased and their family.  Personalisation should be core to a celebrant, and they will normally meet with the family to discuss the type of service they would like. Celebrants are required by law to attend annual training to maintain their registration.

Faye and Nikki are authorised celebrants at Mid West Funerals. Faye has been delivering services for both funerals and weddings for over 16 years including for many denominations and cultural backgrounds. Both Faye and Nikki are passionate about the important role of personalisation and reflection within the process of grief.

Minister

Ministers are religious representatives and are usually chosen to lead services where the deceased person or family are of faith. Services lead by Ministers vary depending on religion and personal differences; however most will refer to religious readings, prayer or ritual throughout.

Mid West Funerals are available to organise a Minister for your specific funeral arrangements.

Speak with Faye or Nikki to find out which Ministers are available in your area.

Friend or family member

A service lead by a friend or family member can be personal and relaxed. Whilst people choosing to do this usually have public speaking experience, it certainly isn’t essential. Leading a service as a family member or friend can be both rewarding and challenging, however Faye and Nikki provide support, tips and ideas for anyone thinking about delivering a service themselves.

Get in touch with Faye or Nikki if you’re considering leading a service.

Place can hold meaning

You’ll always get our best prices up-front and, whilst we’ll show you the options, each decision is personal and yours to make without persuasion.
