A Family Undertaking; The History of a Funeral Business.

We recently commemorated 100 years of our family’s care in South East Queensland by publishing A Family Undertaking; The History of a Funeral Business. The first book of its type to be published in Queensland, it explores the historical journey of Queensland’s first funeral business from its beginnings in 1840 right through to 2009.

It also takes a look at a potted history of some of the other funeral businesses that have been established along the way. “It’s a fascinating and rarely-seen look at an industry that intrigues us all”
