The Great Northern Garden of Remembrance was purpose-built and recent updates ensure you of the very best funeral care.
Our 90-seat chapel is modern and includes a beautiful glass water wall to create a peaceful calming environment. The view from inside the chapel across the gardens and natural bushland is quietly calming and a special place to say goodbye to a loved one.
We also have a beautiful outdoor gazebo surrounded by a running waterways, arrangement and reflection rooms, a viewing room, a fully-catered refreshments area and landscaped gardens with a variety of memorialisation options.
As the facility is bordered by a nature reserve there is an abundance of native animal & bird life including a family of friendly kangaroos, which add to the peacefulness of the whole environment.
We believe Great Northern Garden of Remembrance is definitely the Moreton Region’s most outstanding funeral venue.
With the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, after funeral catering has now recommenced in our Refreshment Room but is limited to 50 people. Families considering incorporating refreshments into their service are asked to consider restricting attendees to 50 as well. Please feel free to talk to our friendly staff about your needs.
For those far away who are unable to attend the funeral, you can view the funeral service over the internet.
If the funeral service is being conducted in our Chapel, you may wish to take up the option of broadcasting the funeral service on the internet. This broadcast is NOT accessible to the general public as the broadcast can only be accessed by those to whom the family gives the personalised password. To access the Internet Broadcast service you will require a computer with internet access.
If you require this service please discuss your requirements directly with your chosen funeral director.
Our Great Northern chapel has the facilities to play your chosen music or photo/video tributes at the service but we do ask that material be supplied in the correct format and that it be tested prior to the service. Instructions on preparing these files are available for download here.
Whilst viewing the deceased is not for everyone, it is none-the-less a very important part of the funeral process for those who choose to say goodbye once the funeral director has prepared a loved one for the funeral. Experts tell us a viewing helps one to accept the death and is a good first step in healing the grief that follows after a person passes away.
At Great Northern Garden of Remembrance, you can choose to have a public viewing for family, friends and mourners in the peaceful environment of our chapel. Alternatively, for those occasions when the chapel is in use, or if a family simply requires a very private place to spend some time with their loved one, our viewing room with an atmosphere suitably softened by appropriate and tasteful décor will, add a feeling of comfort for our families.
With Australia’s development as a multi-cultural society, our understanding of the needs of all the various cultures and creeds is a vital part of our ability to provide meaningful funeral services for all families.
It may come as a surprise to some but witnessing the coffin going into the cremator is an important part of the funeral rites for some cultures. Older crematoria are not designed for this and need to allow such people into the cremator room in order to witness the coffin entering the cremator.
Our newly renovated cremation facility has been re-designed with this in mind. We now have a special room with a connecting window adjacent to the cremator room to accommodate the viewing of the insertion of the coffin into the cremator. The room is appropriately and comfortably appointed in order to soften the impact for our families during what may sometimes be a confronting experience.
During this Covid-19 crisis, we take our responsibility seriously when it comes to caring for our clients,
staff and local community.
