The Hobson family established A Gentle Touch Funerals in 1997. Their vision was to not only to provide a funeral service that was deserving of the individual, but to always remain progressive.
As time moves on, so do the needs and desires of families. We have always been one step ahead to accommodate our clients.
We were instrumental in establishing a Green Cemetery on the Gold Coast, a first for Queensland and right on time to respond to the concerns of our more environmentally conscious lives.
We designed and built a fully functional funeral home and chapel right in the heart of Mudgeeraba. This has never been done before in a commercial/retail precinct anywhere on the Gold Coast. It realises a dream of ours to provide families with the very best care at a time when they are most vulnerable.
Embracing new approaches and philosophies in our ever changing profession, we introduced another first by custom-designing A Gentle Touch hearse.
Our Rolls Royce hearse is ideal for those who want the very best mode of transport for their loved one. This hearse not only reflects an appreciation for refinements, it also provides a unique context for creating an everlasting memory.
Another innovation is the introduction of our Expression Coffin Range—a completely new way of personalising individual coffins. Mark Hobson, one of the Directors of A Gentle Touch, is a key player in the design and creation of this exciting new range.
Quality funeral care is central to the well-being of the community. Over the years, we have seen this validated again and again. And we are committed to ensuring that the core values of funeral service continue to meet our changing needs as a society.
At A Gentle Touch, we hand-pick our staff. We seek team members who understand the individual needs of the community. Just as every person is an individual, a funeral service should reflect the individual. Our team is passionate about catering to this need and approaching it with the utmost care and attention to detail.
A Gentle Touch Funerals is Mudgeeraba’s only funeral company. Accommodating local families is very important to us. A large number of these families are from pioneering heritage, so special attention is paid to recognise the important role their families have contributed to the district.
Being Mudgeeraba-based is, in no way, restricting us to our district. We also specialise in repatriation, sending people interstate and overseas, as well as supporting families worldwide.
We are also the preferred funeral director for the Moreton Bay Islands, caring for their residents and in particular the indigenous communities.
Under the banner of Pacific Family Funerals, we also preserve the cultural integrity of the great Hawaiki nations.
