Tender Illawarra and Sydney

At Tender Funerals, we believe funerals and funeral care should be meaningful, authentic, and affordable.

 

Tender Funerals is a not-for-profit funeral service that ensures that those experiencing financial hardship/distress are able to access personalised, meaningful and affordable funerals.

Every person is unique, and their funeral should reflect this. We provide a range of services across after death care, funeral/celebration arrangements and body disposal options – many based on sustainable principles – which enable you to have a much greater say in how your loved one is treated after death.

A community venture, we operate in ways they do not leave community members with large debt. We don’t take shortcuts and always put people and relationships first.

We encourage practices that promote healing, including participating in any aspects of the funeral processes should you chose. For those who want to participate in this last significant rite of passage, it can be an enriching and life-affirming experience. Or, should you prefer, we can care for your loved one on your behalf.
