Our family were extremely happy with the compassionate and professional service provided by Jonathan Hepner Funerals. At such an emotional time, they helped take the worry and stress out of arranging the funeral. We were impressed with the overall service and the small details just added to a perfect send off. Thank you

About Us

As a family-run funeral home, Jonathan Hepner Funerals’ caring team understand that a bereavement can be a very difficult and uncertain time for families. Their role is to listen and it a little easier for bereaved families in Geelong to focus on their loved one, with the reassurance their wishes will be carried out with compassion and respect.

Jonathan Hepner Funerals can help arrange a funeral that is truly fitting for your loved one, according to faith, tradition, culture or lifestyle. Their focus is on providing a funeral that’s meaningful – whether that’s a traditional funeral with horse-drawn hearse or sedan, or a celebration of life via Harley motorcycle hearse on the beach.

The Geelong funeral home can help you to arrange a fully catered and personalised funeral service in an indoor venue or outdoor space that holds special significance to your family. Its Ormond Road premises also has its own bright and modern chapel, with parking on site for mourners. Audio-visual equipment is available to record and livestream funerals, enabling family members who love further away to be a part of a loved one’s goodbye.

The funeral is a significant stage in the grieving process, with counselling available to Geelong families after the service has taken place. Its grief counsellor is there to listen should you need to talk and will contact you after the funeral to offer support.

As an active member of the Australian Funeral Directors Association, Jonathan Hepner Funerals adheres to the standards and guidelines that this respected organisation maintains.

The caring team at Jonathan Hepner Funerals is on call 24 hours a day throughout the year. Call them at any time, day or night, for compassionate support when it is most needed.

  • 5 Valentina Kufner 19th Feb 2019

    Hi, I have nothing but respect for the way we were treated by Nikki Tonkin, from our first meeting we were thought of as family and nothing we asked for in either help with the direction or style we wished for our mother was ever doubted. Nikki is an absolute asset to the company and just a lovely person, I also have so much respect for the way my mother was cared for throughout the process, from the way we left her in the hospital after the 24 hours of seeing her take her last breath, the way she looked on the day of the funeral she looked absolutely angelic and beautiful and i can't thank the mortician enough also for the care given to mum and to the family for our last viewing and farewells. Kind Regards, Tina Kufner.

    The staff were marvelous, whenever they were needed they were there; but later I realised they never made themselves stand out they worked in the background always ensuring our focus was were it was needed to be on the day.
