The funeral industry in Australia is currently estimated to be $1.5 billion and provides essential services to individuals and families dealing with, or preparing for, death and bereavement.

However, navigating the funeral industry in Perth when dealing with a loved one’s death can leave many of us vulnerable to upselling and confused with no understanding of the industry and little idea of our rights and choices.

When selecting a funeral home in Perth, one question you need to consider is whether to engage a large corporate funeral home (like Purslowe & Chipper Funerals) or the services of a smaller, West Australian and family-owned funeral home. While large corporations have the benefit of a well-known brand, it often means that you’ll pay a premium, and you may not have as much flexibility to personalise the funeral, so it’s worthwhile to consider all of your options.
