At Central Highlands Funeral Services, we’re based in Emerald and on hand to help you come to a decision and make the necessary arrangements.

Permanent gravesite

One of the main benefits of opting for a burial service is that it offers you a mausoleum or permanent gravesite that love ones can pay a visit whenever they like.

Being with loved ones

Be together in life and death. A burial service offers the opportunity to lay your loved one to rest alongside other members of your family in the same plot.

Offers closure

For many people, a funeral with a burial service offers people closest to the deceased to mourn and deal with their grief. Watching the coffin being lowered into the ground can sometimes offer people the closure needed to say a proper farewell.
