Below is a selection of the many thank-you notes and testimonials we receive from our families.
Linda Behan reviewed Holy Cross Funerals — 5 star
I would like to thank the staff from Holy Cross Funerals, particularly Therese, who I dealt with the most before and after my father’s (Valentine Henry Boyle) death on 2 Aug this year. They were compassionate and efficient in their dealings with me. The company was recommended to me by my sister-in-law (Carmel Therese Yarrow) who had used their services when her husband (Mervyn Yarrow) died in 2011 and her family then used Holy Cross Funerals again when she died in June this year. I started the process 8 months before Dad died and the price that was quoted at that time, was the price I was charged when he died. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a memorial card with Dad’s name on a few months after his death and then we were invited to the All Souls Memorial Mass on 3 Nov at Kippa Ring Parish. It was a lovely touch to see both my father and sister-in-law’s names printed in the order of service booklet. Those little touches are what sets them apart from the others. I did a lot of research for my father before he died on pricing of funerals and associated services and Holy Cross came up very competitive. Even though my father was not a Catholic, both myself and my mother are, so the Catholic touches for us were very special. A real blessing. Thank you Holy Cross Funerals. I can confidently recommend your services, both Catholic and otherwise to anyone seeking a professional, personal and reasonably priced funeral or associated services.

My name is Deborah Lewis and your company managed the care of my father after his death on 31 May 2015 and his funeral at Holy Spirit, Bray Park on 5 June, 2015.
Our family wanted to send a big thank you to you for your professional care of Dad and supportive responses to my Mum and all of our family.
I was present at home when your team came to take Dad’s body away and we were especially touched by your professional care and sharing of prayer together before his body was moved.
Selwyn Winter came to our home later that day, to plan Dad’s funeral, and met with my Mum and my three sisters and I and was truly caring and listening to all of us and was especially responsive to Mum. He took so much of the worry out of the funeral for us by managing so many of the details and by presenting a number of different options e.g. for the casket and flowers etc. in a way that honoured my father’s wishes and was not pushy in any way.
Many of our family and friends, who attended Dad’s funeral made comment about the professional and compassionate way that your team managed the day. We were especially touched that Selwyn brought the hearse to Mum and Dad’s home and allowed our family to process with Dad to the church, prior to the service.
I would certainly recommend your company to family, friends and colleagues and I am more than willing to allow you to use this letter for promotional purposes.
Many, many thanks.— Deborah Lewis
Thanks very much for the beautiful memorial mass last Tuesday night. I appreciated being part of the celebration and wish to thank everyone involved in the preparation especially your friendly staff. Bob would have been feeling very special to have had a mass being offered just for him.
On behalf of my family,
Thanks— Sandra Ventura
