Funeral Arrangements Manning Funerals

Unlike a wedding, there is no rehearsal for a funeral! There is only one opportunity to get things right. Having spent the last thirteen years as a funeral director, Martha-Louise Asmus of Manning Funerals is well aware of this. Her attention to detail ensures nothing is overlooked, and the family has no regrets.

“I will do anything to facilitate your funeral service wishes, provided it is legal and doesn’t compromise the dignity of the person I am caring for”.

“At Manning Funerals, we take the worry of arranging a funeral out of the family’s hands. We will do as much or as little as the family would like us to. This ranges from booking a venue for the funeral service, and a celebrant or minister best suited to the family, to arranging any number of the many other details contributing to a special funeral service.”

No matter how organized or prepared a family may be, all of their plans can go out the window at the time of a death. Funeral arrangements – through the sheer volume of decision making – can overwhelm anyone and for this reason, Manning Funerals advocates individuals have funeral plans in place to provide clarity about the deceased’s wishes. Manning Funerals welcomes enquiries from people wishing to put in place their own funeral arrangements, or those of others.
