Oakwood Funerals has helped families in Western Australia celebrate a life they knew and loved well since 1999.
We provide a level of service that honours a lifetime of tradition and an understanding of every individual we serve. You can put your trust in the service, understanding and gentle compassion of an Oakwood Funeral.
Visit us at our funeral home, or give us a call 24/7 on: (08) 9330 8300.
Oakwood Funerals provides a full range of services to assist people following the death of a family member and guide them through the funeral arrangement procedure.
We are there for the family from the time of taking the person who has died into care, arranging all mortuary care, transportation, legal and identity procedures and attending to all procedures leading to burial or cremation. Our services honour and dignify the life of the person who has died, in every step and every detail of the arrangement.
In the Book of Ideas, funeral directors have shared some of their stories of how families have honoured their loved ones, so that you can draw inspiration for your own funeral arrangements.
Adding a personal touch can make the funeral feel more authentic. Our funeral directors can help you create a funeral that honours and celebrates the life and values of the person who has passed away.
When you're organising a funeral service, one of the first decisions will be whether you are organising a burial or a cremation. This choice will directly impact the type of funeral service you will have.
Our funeral directors believe in giving back to the community. We are members of your local social group, sporting club and church, and we are dedicated to being sensitive to the communities we serve.
Oakwood Funerals offers an environmentally conscious funeral through Green Endings, a carbon neutral alternative designed to maximise care for both the environment and your loved one.
Oakwood Funerals was started in 1999 by Don Chipper, a third generation funeral director who saw an opportunity to offer Western Australian families a better choice in funeral services. Founded on a vision of offering service, understanding and compassion through the focus on the little things that create stronger memories, Oakwood Funerals strives to offer a new standard of service.
Our funeral directors are professionals with years of experience in the industry. They are dedicated to offering the best level of personal care and cater to all faiths and communities.
Funerals can seem like a complicated affair, and there is a lot to know. That's why we created this help section to make things just a little easier.
We've provided some information about what to expect from each step of the funeral arrangements, from how to plan ahead or what to do when someone passes away, to what you should expect before, during and after a funeral service.
Planning a funeral when a loved one dies can be a challenging task, but did you know that a funeral can be planned and paid for ahead of time?
A prepaid funeral is a sensible alternative to funeral insurance or funeral bonds, and could save you money - you pay today's price and ensure the service will be tailored to your needs, wishes and budget.
When someone close to you has passed away and if you've never arranged a funeral before, you might not know what you will need to do when a death has occurred.
You'll find more information about what to do when a death occurs, what to expect when meeting your funeral director, the Death Certificate and why funerals matter in this section.
There is usually some time between making the initial funeral arrangements with your funeral director, and the time of the actual funeral service.
There are a number of things you may wish to consider before the funeral service, such as the choice of day and time, whether you will have a viewing and if you are writing a eulogy.
Once the funeral service is over, it is time to consider the type of memorial you would like for your loved one. Your options will depend on whether it was a burial or cremation service.
We also provide information about scattering ashes and resources for coping with grief.
