Funeral Home

Hugh Flynn Funeral Directors can help you take some of the anxiety out of organising a funeral by providing the use of our funeral home to host a wake/viewing. As part of our complete funeral service, Hugh Flynn Funeral Directors have a cross-community, non-denominational funeral home where we welcome the bereaved to hold religious or civil services, with their own celebrants, should they wish. With many families now choosing not to go to a church for evening reception prayers, our Funeral Home is very suitable for a gathering of family and friends with or without prayers, which gives people time to meet and greet with friends in a relaxed atmosphere. The full use of the kitchen, family room is available when utilising our funeral home.

Our beautiful service room is suitable for services for all religious and non-religious funerals. Hugh Flynn Funeral Home’s versatility allows for a broad array of multimedia resources for your loved one’s funeral. We have the ability to play your favourite music, watch memorial videos and slideshows, and we decorate our facility in a way that displays the accomplishments, hobbies, and legacy of those we serve.

Families may also request catering/light refreshments to be prepared and served within the funeral home. If preferred, they can organise this service for visitors within their own network of family and friends.

How you can use our funeral home:

  • Host a gathering in private for close family members and friends – “a private wake” 
  • Host a gathering where members of the public can come to pay their respects (sometimes known as “the public wake”) 
  • Use it as a resting place until you bring your loved one home or until a funeral mass/ service takes place
  • You may also request catering/light refreshments to be served within the funeral home.

Technology within our funeral home

Here at Hugh Flynn Funeral Directors, we are embracing technology more and more in our funeral home. We now offer families full use of our Wi-Fi and funeral webcasting services, incorporating different ways to make funeral services more meaningful to families and make them feel comfortable in these surroundings.

Dual Location Wake – Family Home and Funeral Home
Many families would prefer to invite friends and family to visit them and their loved one in the family home but for many reasons, this may not be possible. Hugh Flynn Funeral Directors offer the opportunity to combine the use of a family home and our funeral home in these circumstances. In this scenario the funeral home would be used for a public gathering for extended relatives and friends over a specified period of time. The deceased may rest in the privacy of a family home before and after the use of our funeral home where immediate family have more time and privacy to come to terms with their loss.
