Funeral arrangements in Drysdale, the Bellarine and greater Geelong region

At William Sheahan Funerals, we understand this is a very difficult time for you and your family.

To assist, our fully qualified funeral directors will work with you to create the celebration you’ll always want to remember. We will then support you by making all the arrangements. This way, your family can focus on each other.

Our support begins with the very first contact. We will make arrangements to transfer your loved one if you need it. We’ll also arrange a private meeting at your home, office or other preferred location.

At this meeting, we will talk about your needs and wishes. We will guide you through your options, advise you on all aspects of the celebration – both practical and celebratory, from what to do in the first 24 hours through to the funeral service.

  • Timing
  • Location, whether it be in our chapel or another venue of your choice
  • The celebrant
  • The type of funeral services
  • Music and audio visual requirements (including recording the service)
  • Obituaries and funeral notices
  • Flowers
  • Coffin or casket selection
  • Burial and/or cremation
  • Booklets or other remembrances
  • Refreshment planning if needed
  • Fully detailed costs

We will also leave you with a clear outline of your arrangements so that you can review it and share it with others. After the meeting, your funeral director will continue to support you by seeing to the arrangements and liaising with clergy or celebrants, florists, the church, newspapers and other parties. We can involve you in as much or as little of the organisation as you wish. It’s completely up to you.

At William Sheahan Funerals, we understand that this is a time of remembrance; a time for family and friends. The goal of our funeral directors is to create the celebration you desire and make the arrangements as simple as possible for you.
