West Coast Funerals

We believe it is a great privilege for us to be entrusted with the care of a loved one, in a time of need. Our modern facilities servicing Port Lincoln and the Eyre Peninsula area, are set amidst the peace and serenity of our lovely tranquil gardens.

West Coast Funerals is a member of the Australian Funeral Directors’ Association and the Australasian Cemeteries and Crematoria Association, ensuring that our facilities, professional practice and ethics are of the very highest standard.

As country people, we have a strong affinity with the land, and the rural way of life.  Our garden evidences this close bond with nature.  There is great satisfaction in nurturing plants through their growth, enjoying their beauty, and finally composting them. They can then return to the earth from which they came, as organic materials – reminding us of the great order of the universe, and the cycle of life itself.


All facilities have been developed with consideration for the comfort, needs and privacy of the people we serve.

What do I say to someone who has lost a loved one? 
There are no right words to say…..

Our professional team are dedicated to the people we serve.
