A life worth celebrating and remembering

A funeral brings together extended families, lifelong friends and sometimes an entire community to remember a special person. Sharing favourite memories and saying goodbye helps with the grieving process. Most importantly, a funeral service celebrates a person’s life.

At CR Smyth & Son, we take the time to focus on the individuals in a family. We make sure that a funeral service represents your loved one’s life and their values.

Funeral services are completely personalised to include the elements that are most important to your loved one and your family. We’ll guide you through the process of arranging a funeral that will bring your most cherished memories to the surface.

The Smyth family has been part of the Newcastle and Hunter Valley community for over 90 years, so we are locals, just like you. And you are welcome to ask us as many questions as you need to.

Our family is available to support your family, 24 hours a day.

Planning a Funeral

Arranging a Prepaid Funeral

When you arrange a prepaid funeral, all of the financial decisions are made in advance. Your family won’t need to worry about arranging finance and making difficult choices in their time of grief.

My Funeral Plan

Helping your family and friends
to honour your memory

Death can be difficult to discuss with your loved ones. If you don’t want to worry them, CR Smyth can help. We have a printable Funeral Plan document that will help you to communicate your wishes, either before or after you have passed.

You can record all your chosen details about the funeral service, and your burial or cremation wishes. You can include your favourite memories and stories, songs and readings. It’s a way to make sure your family hears and holds onto the memories that are most important to you.

Recording your wishes in the Funeral Plan document will ease your family’s burden in their time of grief. They will have the confidence that everything is as you wanted, without stress or worry.

You can download the My Funeral Plan document or call our office on (02) 4990 1425.
