I found Cairns Funeral Directors to be very professional and made it very easy for us from the time we booked an appointment to the day of the service.

Cairns cremations were a pleasure to deal with, they were compassionate and professional during the entire process of sending off my brother Noel(String).Paul and his team were great, pricing is also very competitive, couldn’t recommend them enough

I recently required the services of the Cairns funeral Directors.From the initial contact, a phone call with John to attending a meeting with Jane, the care taken that we had received had been exceptional. Every detail that we had requested was completed, even at the last moment. Moments before the viewing we had asked for one additional request, and that was also accommodated.As challenging a time it was for us, we as a family do thank the team for the support and care they had given through out this difficult time. I highly recommend the Cairns Funeral Directors for anyone requiring Funeral services.

I unreservedly recommend Cairns Funeral Directors for their kind, compassionate, helpful and thoroughly professional service.- I dealt with Jane and also Kylie and could not possibly have aspired to more considerate empathetic respectful caring support and service. Their attention to detail is stupendous and Jane regularly went well beyond what I could have expected : reporting back to me every step of the way - which was helpful being I was requesting special services and processes for my beloved mother, and I was overseas. Jane and her team never let a detail slip. The service was beautiful and I will be grateful always. Thanks Vivienne
