"We are a group of people with a shared commitment to providing a personal and tailored service at a difficult time in people's lives. We will support you from the very first conversation".
Our promise to you
At Natural Funerals, we support you from the very first conversation.
Whether we begin with a phone call from a hospital, hospice, a family member or a friend, our close knit team are available at any time of day to take your loved one into our care.
We will then meet with you to design the funeral you and your loved one would want. A service that tells a meaningful story that respects, honours and celebrates a life. And always with our warmth and understanding.
We pride ourselves on working transparently. All of our services and prices are clearly listed on our website. We will also provide you with a printed price estimate when we meet with you for the first time. For many services we provide we have a simple philosophy of what it costs us is what it cost you, with no excessive markups.
During our initial meeting, we'll talk through the options available and we'll do everything we can to ensure you understand the range of services we offer and how much the funeral will cost including any known disbursements (the fees to be paid on your behalf to doctors, ministers, cemetery or crematoria authorities and other third parties).
Whether it be a simple service, modern, traditional, green or completely custom designed - when it comes to funerals and memorial services, the choice is always yours.
We are a family owned funeral company, born and bred here in Adelaide. Our guiding principle is to encourage families to be involved as much or as little as they want in a funeral service, designing services that are simple, beautiful and natural in approach. In our modern world, expectations have changed as to what a funeral should look like or how we should remember someone who has died. As a South Australian independent family owned funeral provider, we believe we should all be aware of our options.
At The Natural Funeral Company we will help you understand what is possible.
We will help you to celebrate the life of the person you care about in a way that is right for you and your family, and at a price you can afford.
As a smaller family owned funeral home, we offer a level of care not possible by corporate funeral homes. The person who arranges your loved ones funeral will be with you all the way to the day of the funeral service, and after to provide support.
Our main team consists of Colin Clarke, Grace Haysman, Cathy Clarke and Jess Marquardt-Gray. We also have a loyal team of support staff and suppliers.
What makes us different ?
We constantly strive to be different, putting love and care back into an industry that has lost touch with the needs of its customers. We don't treat our families as a number. Our small team help people to reconnect with death and to create truly bespoke, loving and beautiful funerals.
We don't make any assumptions about you and the kind of support and funeral service that might be best for you. We will listen to your thoughts, ideas, wishes and concerns and help you design the best possible farewell.
All of our funerals are unique and beautiful and every one is customised to your needs. We embrace the ceremony involved in a funeral and actively encourage families and friends to be involved in as much or as little as they wish. If you wish to provide your own cards, memorial book or celebrant you are most welcome.
Honesty and integrity are at the centre of everything we do. By providing our package prices and service costs (as a guide) on this website we aim to be transparent with our pricing. We charge a low fee for our professional services and, unlike many funeral directors, we do not make huge profits on products such as coffins, flowers, newspaper notices and urns.
If you want to do your own thing and just utilise our services for arranging paperwork and mortuary care, then we can support you with a DIY home funeral.
Ultimately, The Natural Funeral Company is here for you to help in anyway we can. With our friendly approach, green credentials and better pricing, we have grown to become a trusted funeral services provider.
