COVID-19

At Ivan Butler Funerals, we are committed to serving the community, with professional and caring funeral service.  We are privileged to care for the deceased, and their loved ones, in their time of need.

The current situation that we are all facing is unprecedented on a local, national, and global scale, in the modern era.

Along with the dignified care of the deceased, we are committed to the health, safety, and wellbeing of our client families, members of the public, and our staff.

We are taking precautions within our funeral home to ensure that we minimise the risk of transmission of the virus.

The Australian Funeral Directors Association has been in close, regular contact with the Federal Government, seeking advice and counsel regarding how the funeral industry needs to react in the coming days, weeks and months.

In light the recent announcement by the Prime Minister in relation to limits on the size of indoor public gatherings, we are considering all available options in order to continue to serve the public in their time of need.   We will discuss and work through these options with each family, to ensure that we establish the most appropriate for them.  It is important to remember that you should never feel rushed during a time of grief.

I’m sure we are all concerned about, and committed to, mitigating the spread of this virus, and want to help to ‘flatten the curve’.  With this in mind, it may be that if you have an enquiry regarding funeral service, particularly if it is pre-need, you may prefer to contact us via phone: (08) 8261 8211; email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.; or our website.

Our website contains a great deal of information, including opportunity to provide the relevant personal information we require for either an at-need or pre-need arrangement (here).

When visiting our funeral home, or if you’re out in public for other reasons, it is prudent to follow the advice from health experts to minimise physical contact, and respect the wishes for others to maintain a safer social distance, without judgement.  When offering your condolences to someone, rather than a handshake or a hug, consider placing your hand over your heart.  It is these small gestures, that not only show that you care, but will go a long way to reducing the risk of further spreading the virus.

We are all in this together, so let’s continue to support each other to the best of our abilities.
