Funerals of Compassion directors, Rocco Polistina and John Musumeci, are both of Italian descent. Together, they have years of experience arranging Italian funerals in Parramatta and the surrounding region. Their caring, compassionate approach is combined with a deep understanding of Italian funeral customs and traditions.
Arranging a funeral can be an emotionally distressing experience for everyone. Particularly if the family has different opinions on how the service should be performed.
Your funeral director will consult you on your wishes, and if known, those of the deceased. Preparation will be made for rituals including the Catholic Mass, prayer vigil, funeral liturgy and last rites. Friends and family will have the choice to speak during the service. And you can decide who will be the pallbearers.
You can nominate a priest to perform the service in English and/or Italian. Or we can find a local priest to perform the service on your behalf.
Floral arrangements, music and stationary are provided for by experienced professionals. We can arrange our graphic designer to produce a range of memorial cards, framed pictures and condolence books.
Funerals of Compassion have a range of local and imported coffins for Parramatta residents. We stock Italian-made solid timber coffins, courtesy of Ionica – the only provider handmade, imported Italian coffins and caskets. We also supply a range of high-end and affordable products to suit your needs.
