Why We Have FuneralsWhy We Have Funerals

Humans have always searched for ways to celebrate and commemorate the lives of people that we have lost. Whatever your religious or spiritual beliefs happen to be, a funeral is an important shared ritual and essential element of the mourning process. If you are in a situation where you are faced with making funeral arrangements, it can be useful to reflect on the practical and spiritual reasons why we have funerals. We hope that you find this information a useful resource and comfort during this challenging period of your life.

Family ownership is important

Since 1908, Alex Gow Funerals has remained a family-owned and operated independent business. By remaining family-owned, we have not been burdened by fluctuating stock market prices or a need to impress corporate shareholders. Our services are fairly priced and delivered with the most professional service, which we consider entwined in our family’s longstanding reputation for excellence. We live for our business and everything we do reflects our ongoing commitment to providing affordable, quality services to our community.

It makes sense to record your funeral wishes

We live our whole lives making decisions that are based around what WE want as individuals. We think it out clearly, we write it down and we make it happen, so when it comes to our funerals, it makes a lot of sense to do the same and make a record of what we want. This alleviates any confusion and your family can clearly see your preferences for everything from location, coffins, and flowers, right through to your choice of burial or cremation.

There is no obligation and no contracts, just the opportunity to show the world what YOU want, one last time.
