Multi-Cultural Funerals

As society has changed over the last century all areas of the country have welcomed a variety of cultures and backgrounds into the local community fabric.  The Funeral team at P.G. Oxley Ltd have significant experience in dealing with multicultural, religious and non-religious funerals, so are always able to offer you the most suitable solutions for your personal needs.

Commonly most funerals take place in the setting of a traditional religious service, led by a member of the clergy. Increasingly however, some families choose a non-religious, Humanist or Civil funeral.   We maintain close ties with several celebrants who will provide a highly personal and dignified celebration of deceased’s life and will work closely with you to achieve this. 

After over 160 years of service to the local community in providing funeral services, we have experience in making funeral arrangements for a number of cultures and religions, including:

  • Agnostic funerals
  • Anglican funerals
  • Atheist funerals
  • Baptist funerals
  • Christian
  • Church of Christ funerals
  • Church of Scientology funerals
  • Greek Orthodox funerals
  • Hindu funerals
  • Jehovah's Witness funerals
  • Jewish funerals
  • Lutheran funerals
  • Methodist funerals
  • Presbyterian funerals
  • Plymouth Brethren funerals
  • Roman Catholic funerals
  • Salvation Army funerals
  • Seventh Day Adventist funerals
