Guiding You Through
Eulogy Planning

As part of most funeral ceremonies, someone (a family member, Minister or Celebrant) shares an abbreviated life story of the deceased person. This is called “The Eulogy” from the Greek word “to speak well of”. Often it is difficult to know what to include and what to leave out. Generally speaking, the main eulogy should include:

  • A brief history pf the life of the deceased
  • Some personal characteristics or achievements

Some families ask us to create a Slideshow Photo Presentation as a living Eulogy. Sometimes a second eulogy is brought from a grandchild, lifetime friend or work associate. Some people choose to present this as a letter read to their deceased loved one.

  • Personality
  • Character
  • Beliefs or Philosophies
  • Hobbies and Interests
  • Personal Memories (Cooking, fishing)
  • Famous sayings and habits
  • Humour is appropriate also in Eulogies

Why choose us?

Across Australia today there are currently no Legal requirements for Funeral Service providers to be licensed. There is also no form of regulation in place regarding funeral care, standards for funeral home premises, associated facilities, equipment or professional staff training. So, how does one choose a Funeral Home that will reassure and provide peace of mind.

What should I do?

When a death occurs in your family, it is important to contact your preferred Funeral Director immediately, we can advise you of the correct procedures to follow. Most deaths will occur by natural causes, in hospitals, nursing homes, aged care facilities or at the family home. In most of these cases, a Medical Certificate of ‘Cause of Death’ will be issued by your attending doctor.

Arranging the funeral

We believe our role as Funeral Directors is to facilitate the funeral to suit the needs of the bereaved. Each person is unique in personality, likes and dislikes, therefore no two funerals will be the same, nor should they be. It is a very special time and most important, that the ceremony be such that it centres around the life of the deceased and creates a positive and lasting memory for the family to treasure forever.

Call when needed

At Heritage Brady Funeral Directors we ensure this important moment is covered with the utmost respect and dignity. Since 1981 we have been privileged to serve our local community and walked this journey with you.

We appreciate this moment in your life and will always assist in every way possible.
