Real stories from families we’ve been honoured to serve

Dear Kim

I want to thank you for your Management of Mum’s affairs and all the paperwork that goes with it.

The service went perfectly.

Thankyou for suggesting Wendy as celebrant. She did a marvelous job.

I loved your handling of the photo presentation and the Order of Service booklet. Thankyou for managing the problem with the sound during the Eulogy. Also, the coffin and the flowers looked beautiful.

I passed the streaming link on to a number of our older relatives who couldn’t come.

For me, the streaming worked perfectly and it will also provide a wonderful memory for my brothers and sister.

Thanks so much, Kim for making this occasion which means so much to me and the family a memorable one.


I would like to thank you both very much for the compassionate and thoughtful service you provided me with last Friday.  I was very happy with the way the Memorial for John unfolded, and I received many compliments from friends who were both there, and viewing from afar.  You did everything exactly the way I had asked and treated my wishes with respect. – Sharyn

Thank you so much for the way you handled Richard’s funeral for us. We will certainly be recommending your Company to friends. We all thought the Service went really well. Many people, especially family members who were unable to attend, appreciated being able to watch the Service on the (Livestream) Link. – Janice

We would just like to express our thanks and gratitude for the kindness you have shown to our family in the past two weeks. You have made an impossibly difficult time in our lives that little bit easier.  From the moment we walked in the door,  we knew that Henry would be taken care of. The service was lovely and we have had many such comments from family and friends. Once again thank you. – Jim & Jane

Just wanted to send a huge thank you for your time, respect and a beautiful funeral for my Graham. Your service was beyond excellent and I am so happy we chose Sovereign Funerals. Graham, I am sure, would have been happy, too. So many people had commented that the funeral services were amazing and would use your service if required. I will always feel blessed that Graham had such a beautiful, respectful funeral. Will always support Sovereign Funerals.

With the greatest Gratitude.

Kim & family

Thank you so much for your care, patience, and compassion in organizing Mum’s funeral.

We really appreciated your assistance and understanding and were very happy with the way the service went.

Thank you again.

Joanna & family

Dad and I wanted to thank you for making the process of mum’s funeral as easy as possible, you were a pleasure to deal with. The respect and kindness you showed to us and mum was amazing. The service was beautiful and thank you for putting us in touch with Wendy the celebrant, she was also a pleasure to deal with. As we left the service Dad commented that everything was just right and that mum would have approved.

Once again thank you, we will have no hesitation in recommending Sovereign Funerals in the future.

Alec & Sara

“We wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude and warm wishes to the team at Sovereign Funeral also, for the wisdom and goodwill you extended to us at my husband’s funeral recently. I want to especially thank Rama Dimosi for his support and kindness shown to our family.”


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support. A very professional job making the difficulty of working through this time smoother.
Finally, may I extend to you our sincere appreciation of your kind assistance. May your business continue to prosper and be blessed.

Thank you very much for the excellent work you and your staff have done today in organising a respectful and honourable funeral for dad.

We appreciate the timely coordinated efforts you and all have put in including the wonderful slide show you executed with music.

Thanks again. Lee-Ann

I just wanted to send you a message and thank you for the way you showed so much respect to Poppy and his family at his service. My biggest fear in this whole process was poppy not being treated with respect after his passing. I felt completely ill and angry when he had to be taken away. Everything you and your team member did was nothing short of fantastic. From the details when setting Poppy up at the front of the hall, to the way you walked and escorted the car down the driveway afterwards. It makes me so emotional just thinking about the way you treated Poppy with so much respect. I know this is obviously standard for yourself and your team but I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart and I’m sure it’s nice for you to hear the positives as well.

I was so impressed by the service we received from Trevor and his team. Every detail was addressed . At all times I was consulted and shown respect. Everything flowed so smoothly making the whole process of funeral arrangements so much easier than anticipated. I am sure Sovereign went the extra mile for us.

Just wanted to thank you again for the care you provided our dad our family really appreciated it.

Thank you from the Mathieson family

Just wanted to say thank to you and the team for everything you did for us. Everything went seamlessly, you fulfilled everything you committed to and a difficult day was so much better due to your attention to detail.

From my family to everyone there thanks so much.

Trevor was understanding, sympathetic and made an awful time a little bit easier. Highly recommended.

Dear Trevor,

Thank you so much for all your assistance in organising the funeral of our mother. Nothing was too much trouble and your help in arranging the burial so quickly enabled just that little bit more time before mum’s granddaughter was married.  This was particularly important in our time of loss.

The service and internment were dignified and beautiful and we are certain mum would have loved it. The fact that you are an Australian owned local business and that you invest the profits back into the community would have made mum very happy.

Once again thank you very much and we will have no hesitation in recommending Sovereign Funerals in the future.

Tom & Ruth  

We would like to pass on our heartfelt thanks for your warm and professional service as funeral directors for Nola.

We were impressed with and especially took note of some of the small things you did like, a small bow before approaching the coffin which showed reverence for Nola’s life, and also your little ‘for Christians this is more of a see you later’ message when ending at the graveside. A few others commented and appreciated this as well.

We are very grateful for your services and happy to recommend you in the future.

Brad and Suz

Thank you Trevor for assisting us in the service for my beloved John. You made the organisation of his funeral so easy to do. I am very very grateful for your assistance and support during this difficult time. Once again thank you so much.


Exceptional care and attention from Kim & Rama. So incredibly supportive and informative. Highly recommend Sovereign. Our celebrant Rosswell was simply amazing.


On behalf of our family, I would like to thank you both very much for assisting us with all the arrangements for our beloved, Stephen.

It was most comforting for us to speak with you after Steve’s passing and you took all the burden from us. It is so difficult dealing with all the emotions and arrangements after a loved one has passed. You made the transition for us so much easier. 


We would like to express our sincere appreciation for every helpful and supportive moment during this difficult week. The thoughtful suggestions, the slide show etc. were all outstanding.

Dear Trevor,

My family and I would like to say a special thanks to you and your team for making my father’s final journey a wonderful one. I appreciated the care you took of my dad from the time he left the hospital, through to his cremation.

I am so glad you were there to help expedite everything – words cannot say how grateful we are.


Dear Rose and Trevor,

Thank you for your lovely Christmas note we received. Just over 2 months since Arthur has gone, in this time his birthday and he and Mum would have been married 59 years on the 14/12. Christmas won’t be easy either and your thoughts are very appreciated. Merry Christmas to you, both your families, and the staff at Sovereign.


Dear Trevor and Sovereign Funerals team,

Thank you so much for your gentle love and support during dad’s last weeks. May God continue to bless your endeavours in this work to His glory. We were very happy with how the 30th of September all fell into place. God bless you all.


Dear Trevor & Rose,

We wish to thank you sincerely, from the bottom of our hearts for your wonderful service that you provided us with such comfort and safety. So many people let us know after mum’s service that it was truly the most beautiful service they had attended. Thank you for everything.

Christina, Sam & Matthew

To Dear Trevor, Rose & Wendy,

Thank you so much to each of you for your exceptional service in handling the requirements for my precious husband’s funeral.
You made it so easy for me and the whole experience was perfect in every way.

Trevor and Rose, your professionalism, diligence and kindness towards me was very refreshing.

Wendy, your delivery of the Eulogy for David was brilliant, to say the least.

With kind regards,

Hi Trevor and Staff,

I wanted to write to personally thank you on behalf of my family for both your professional service and personal care you showed us during our recent loss. To know that you were taking care of every detail, even the unforeseen, brought a peace to our hearts at this time.

We also chose your service because of the way you give back into the community near and far and that was a huge part of our Mumma’s life.

So Thank you and God Bless.

Dear Trevor, Rose and staff,

I want to thank you for all the time you spent with my family. Explaining each step helped us make decisions and feel in control of a very hard situation. Thank you for arranging Dad to be taken to Centenary Gardens. Having the funeral here was so important to dad and our family. Your suggestion to make a DVD with photos worked out very well as family and friends enjoyed viewing it with many a laugh Your professionalism went above and beyond and I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone in need. Thank you.


Thanks again for making mum’s funeral arrangements yesterday so easy for the family.
You were great to work with and steered a difficult family situation through to a day that honoured mum.
My family very much appreciated your guidance and support at this time.
Thanks again and best wishes


After my Dad sadly passed away on April 15th from Parkinson’s Disease, Sovereign looked after us, both leading up to the funeral… and on the actual day.?? We really cannot fault their services and would highly recommend them to others. Very caring, courteous and thoughtful.

Thank you so much Trevor, Rose and the rest of the team at Sovereign. You made, what was an extremely difficult period, just that little bit easier to get through.


Thank you beautiful Rose Monaghan for looking after my Mum. You were so wonderful to us & such an amazing special person – love you xxxxxxxxxxx

Sovereign Funerals took care of my grandfather’s funeral and handled everything from the planning to the service with the utmost care and respect.

It was a beautiful service.
Affordable, caring, and it is amazing knowing profits go to helping those in third world countries.


Thank you for the wonderful care and attention in arranging Dad’s funeral. We are very grateful and glad we used Sovereign.
