Who we are

In this region, Burstows is renowned as the only funeral company who refused the multi-national millions to remain family-owned. We believe it is important to remain answerable to you, our local families, rather than to distant shareholders.

The Burstow family and co-workers are caring professionals committed to doing whatever it takes to serve you with excellence and help you grow through the experience of loss.

At Burstows, everything we do,
we do to honour life...

About Us

Here are some important ways we demonstrate this;

  • By providing a sense of comfort and security to those who grieve.
  • By treating those who have died with the utmost respect and dignity.
  • By helping people to commence the important journey of healing as they reconcile their grief.
  • By honouring the lives of those who have died with ceremony that facilitates remembrance, celebration and hope.

Funerals are Important....because Life is Important

“Patience was always present, never were we to feel rushed, every single staff member was like an extension of our family, nothing was too much trouble.”
-M. Sullivan
