Finding a funeral director you can trust in Hobart & Tasmania can be emotionally and financially hard, so let us help. With such a competitive market, Hobart & Tasmania, funeral costs will vary greatly depending on the company you choose, where the service is held, and the type of choices you make.


Hobart’s #1 Funeral planner

When a loved one dies, grieving family members and friends often are confronted with dozens of decisions to make — all of which must be made quickly and often under great emotional stress. What kind of service should it be? What company should you use? Should you bury or cremate the body, or donate it to science? What are you legally required to buy? What about the availability of environmentally friendly or “green” burials? What other arrangements should you plan? And, practically, how much is it all going to cost?

Planning all this yourself can save you time and money as well as reducing the stress your family and friends face at a time of intense grief. It will allow you to discuss and plan the arrangements, in the privacy of your home, and avoid a sales focussed environment before selecting a funeral director.

eziFunerals allows you to create a funeral plan online to enable you to plan and record your wishes regarding your or your loved one’s funeral. You will be able to record details you or your family will need for official records, identify how you would like you or your loved one to be put to rest, and clearly express which inclusions you would like in the funeral, the type of memorial service (if any) and the location of cremation or burial.

Once your funeral plan is complete, eziFunerals will help you get funeral directors to provide you with no obligation quotes so you compare prices before signing a contract with a funeral director that’s right for you.

Professional funeral services by eziFunerals members

Before selecting a funeral home in Hobart, you should try to understand exactly what it is they do. Here are the main services offered by Hobart funeral directors:

  • Registering the death after the issue of the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (including a Cremation Certificate if required).
  • Transferring the body from the place of death to the funeral director’s premises in accordance with strict health rules concerning handling, transport and storage.
  • Meeting you at your home or in their office to discuss your preferences and options. Depending on what you decide, a meeting like this may be less than 30 minutes or up to two or three hours.
  • Coordinating between your clergy (or a funeral celebrant if you wish) and the cemetery or crematorium to decide when, where, and what type of service will be needed. In most cases cemeteries and crematoriums will not deal directly with anyone other than a funeral director.
  • Preparing and placing death, funeral and obituary notices in newspapers of your choice and organising flowers.
  • Preparing the body for burial or cremation.
  • Supplying a coffin or a casket.
  • Providing a place for a viewing of the body by friends and relatives if desired.
  • Transporting the body by hearse to the ceremony and then to the cemetery or crematorium.
  • Providing special cars for mourners.
  • Paying fees for such things as the cemetery, crematorium and flowers on your behalf.
  • Advising and helping you with paperwork involved in accessing any financial reimbursement associated with the funeral (such as a funeral fund).

eziFunerals supports Independent Funeral Directors across all areas of Hobart

Price and customer reviews are helpful, but before you make a final decision and meet with your chosen funeral home there are a few more important points to consider. We recommend that you ask yourself the following key questions before making your choice:

  • Who owns the funeral home you are considering?
  • Are they family owned and independent OR are they owned by a publicly listed company?
  • Does the funeral director work for you and your family or shareholders of publicly listed companies?
  • Have you met or heard about the funeral director in your community?
  • Do you know their personal and professional reputation?
  • How long have they been serving their community?
  • What has been the experience of relatives, friends and neighbours?
  • Does the funeral director provide a full service facility and are they able to handle all of your needs (chapel, viewing room, reception and catering facilities, parking, etc.)?
  • Is the funeral home a trusted and approved member of eziFunerals?
