About Us

Taylor’d Funerals is a local family owned funeral home and service that will offer an onsite arrangement room, adult viewing room, child viewing room, mortuary and coffin display room ensuring that your loved one is looked after from the time we take them into our care until they are farewelled.

Our modern facilities will create an atmosphere that is both warm and inviting. However, more important than the beauty of our home is the manner in which our staff serve the families who pass through our doors. Attention to detail and encouragement of meaningful and creative services is our focus.

A funeral, or memorial service, should provide family members and loved ones with the chance to reflect, remember, and celebrate a life well-lived. At Taylor’d Funerals, our goal is to create exceptional services and experiences that fulfil the wishes of your loved one.

While we await completion of our premises, your loved will be cared for at either:
