funeral customs from other countries
Australia is a multi-cultural society that is made up of many people from different ethnic backgrounds each of whom has a strong link to the culture of the country from which they came. Many of these ethnic groups have burial customs that are an essential element of that culture. It’s important, therefore, that these be fully understood by the group responsible for making the funeral arrangements.
Staff at Darrin Burns Family Funerals, are well versed in that type of background knowledge. This has demonstrated many times through the provision of appropriately conducted funerals for persons from, for example, the Croatian, Chinese, Greek, Indigenous Australian, Korean, Italian, Lebanese communities, as well as from cultures that embrace the Buddhist or Hindu traditions.
When such funerals are being arranged, the family concerned may wish to have an interpreter present at the meeting with the funeral director. This can be arranged so that at this time of emotional stress no additional burden is placed on the family due to a language barrier.
Since our staff at Darrin Burns Family Funerals, possess knowledge appropriate to the funeral customs of many different communities, sensitivity in dealing with the family of the deceased person from such communities is fully maintained.
