Our services


At Burkin Svendsens Funerals we help bring your family together to arrange a funeral service that truly celebrates and honours the life and values of your loved one.

We want to help you remember the person who is gone in a personal way.

Our funeral directors are with you every step of the way, keeping you informed and guiding you through the arrangements as much or as little as you need. We are available in Cairns and all surrounding areas including regional areas and the outback.

Burkin Svendsens Funerals are experienced in arranging funeral services for indigenous communities and Torres Strait Islanders.

We can tailor the service, creating a customised funeral that respects, honours and reflects the life that was lived. 

Our professional funeral directors can turn what can be a worrying and stressful time into a well-run event. Our funeral directors can bring everything together for a funeral service in a very short timeframe, while giving you the time to plan exactly the funeral you want. The funeral director will manage all the paperwork on your behalf and liaise with the suppliers for you, so that you can focus on yourself, your family and the other guests.

Our funeral directors won't rush you into making decisions, instead they will listen, ask questions, and deliver a funeral service that is in line with your requests and your budget. 

We can offer innovative solutions and deliver a contemporary funeral, allowing you to celebrate the life lived rather than mourn the death, if this is what you want to do. Our funeral directors work with you to ensure you get exactly the funeral service you want.

There is no one size fits all when it comes to funerals, and there are many ways to create an authentic, meaningful service that is relevant and true to the life that was lived.
