Established in 1937, our members are a group of caring professionals who are committed to ensuring the families they serve are receiving high quality service.

The Funeral Trust is supervised by a separate corporate trustee company called The Trustee of the Funeral Trust Limited. The Trustee manages the Trust under a Trust Deed that requires them to receive prepayments and hold them only for the purpose of meeting or contributing to the price of funeral services.

The Funeral Trust is audited annually by an independent auditor. There is no underwriter for the Trust as it is a trust not an insurance product.
