The old adage that we are all equal in death is not quite true, however I sense a change in the air.
Despite the Australian Federal Government reluctance to legalise same sex marriages,

NSW Births Deaths and marriages recently made some important changes to registering a death in NSW. The on-line portal now extends options for Gender Specifics, ie. Female, Male, Transgender, Intersex and other. Further, it also recognises same sex couples to both be listed as parents, options include Mother, Father, Parent. The drop down menu, also list options to recognise same-sex marriages. So it seems in death, at least, relationships, gender identity and parentage are being formally recognised.

When dealing with vulnerable people, it takes genuine compassion, an open mind and a sense of humour. Every funeral should be poignant and exclusively about the individual. It is about spending quality time, in their family home, sifting through the stories of one’s life, in order to portray the person that was, their life, their trials and triumphs. 

Our deep seeded values start with respect, respect for everyone, from the deceased to the family as a whole. It’s about consistency, one contact throughout, from the initial call, support through the legal documentation, event management and attendance on the day. 

So why LGBTI Funerals? Why differentiate our service? Because we are self nominated “Gay Friendly” funeral directors. Having worked with the Gay and Lesbian community, we appreciate that discrimination is often felt, and whilst dealing with the loss of a loved one, can be difficult enough open respectful communication will ensure quality service and freedom to celebrate the life.

However, it doesn’t end there, our commitment extends past the funeral day, with little extras from delivering ashes, hand-delivering the Death Certificate, with Certified copies and a helpful list of people to inform.
