Welcome to Alex Gow Funerals, proudly delivering thoughtful, caring funeral services to Brisbane families for four generations.
For more than a century, the Gow family has provided dignified and personal attention to those most in need.
Our name has become synonymous with honesty, integrity and quality funeral care as one of the most trusted funeral directors in Greater Brisbane.
Our endeavour is to ensure that every funeral we arrange is a truly caring, thoughtful experience, backed by the Gow family’s ongoing commitment to excellence in funeral service in the Brisbane region.
We firmly believe that comfort and understanding are essential in times of grief, and our funeral directors never fail to deliver professional, personalised advice throughout the arrangements.Our funeral directors in all of our Brisbane and regional offices are here to guide you through the arrangements and make it as easy as possible for you to plan your loved one’s final goodbye.
With industry training and four generations of experience in the Greater Brisbane area behind us, our funeral directors have the knowledge and skills to carry out all kinds of funeral arrangements – with each one tailored to the family’s needs.
We can make arrangements for burial and cremation services, as well as providing information and resources for planning, pre-planning, insurance, financial arrangements, grief support and crematoriums and cemeteries across Brisbane.
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.
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.
For information about funeral pre-planning, insurance or other financial arrangements, call our friendly Brisbane staff on (07) 3851 7800 today.
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.
