About our funeral services

Funeral Services

We'll take care of everything

We are a family owned, Queensland funeral business, offering comprehensive funeral services throughout South-East Queensland. Our funerals are both personal and compassionate.

Funeral service providers throughout Australia, in particular, Queensland are dominated by large, corporate companies. Compassionate Funerals Queensland was established in 2006 by Russell and Katrina Messenger who observed the need for a more personalised, independent funeral service provider. Since our origins 10 years ago, we have served hundreds of families with true compassion and professionalism, acknowledging the traditions and embracing the modern trends in funeral services.

Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Ph 1300 552 987

Code of Conduct

We adhere to the voluntary Queensland Government Code of Conduct for Funeral Directors. A copy of the Code can be found by clicking here.

Code of Conduct


A feeling of deep sympathy and sorry for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.

To us, compassion is more than just a nice word….

It’s the very essence of our business.

Our Funerals Are Affordable

The amount you love someone should not determine how much you spend on their funeral. We offer funeral services to suit your budget, without compromising our professional and compassionate standards.

We offer flexibility in payment. You may choose to pay for all services up front,  or you may choose to utilise our finance option, allowing you to spread payments over a fixed term. All fees and charges are discussed and agreed upon at the time of making funeral arrangements.

Our comprehensive range of funeral products and services allows you to make funeral arrangements which will express your love in the way you choose.

We are not sales people – our staff are personal, caring and fully trained in arranging and conducting funeral services. Offering advice and guidance you need at a difficult time is our strength. As our name suggests we are –Compassionate – ensuring we provide the utmost dignity and respect at all times.

We'll take care of everything

We are locally owned and operated, driven by the desire to assist people in need – not by multi-national interests, sales targets or shareholders as many of our competitors are. Compassionate Funerals Queensland adhere to the high standards of quality care and professionalism that families insist upon.

Russell Messenger, with his wife, Katrina, lead by example and take great pride in providing the highest standards of care and professionalism. Russell has many years experience in funeral services and has held various positions on the National Boards of Funeral Directors Associations in Australia, including the National President of the Independent Funeral Directors Association.
