Life Rites Funerals


Life Rites Funerals is an LGBTIQ owned and run holistic funeral practice. With two out and proud LGBTIQ team members, amongst a crew of allies, Life Rites can guarantee safety, dignity, and a deep understanding of the incredible diversity of people, families and cultures within our vast and dynamic communities.

Our unique model of service allows us to take care of our families at any point from diagnosis, through treatment into the end-of-life process and beyond.

Having our own premises in Hurstville, Sydney, complete with a chapel and mortuary, means we are in a position to be able to offer hands-on, dignified and respectful care of our people, every step of the way.

We also have a relationship with premises on the Central Coast, where we can facilitate hands-on care if coming to Sydney is not possible.

We offer:

  • next steps information as death approaches
  • funeral planning and advice
  • end-of-life doula support
  • simple and elegant funeral services
  • family and friends-led celebrations of life
  • traditional faith-based funerals

Our processes and services are tailored to meet your needs and your budget.

All families and clients can receive an obligation free 15 minute consultation.

Life Rites services the Greater Sydney Region and Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Illawarra, Southern Highlands and The Shoalhaven areas.

We can meet in your home across Sydney and in our Boutique Funeral Home at 118 Durham Street, Hurstville.
