What Our Families Say

Our whole extended family highly recommends ‘A Gentle Touch Funerals’ to anyone who is seeking gentle, compassionate professionals to look after you at a time of sadness in losing someone you love.  

From the moment we met with Don Blackmore to discuss our needs, we felt comfortable and relieved that we were in good hands.  It was obvious that not only had we chosen a company with strong family values, but an incredible team of people who were sincere, respectful, and who listened to our wishes for a memorable farewell. Our expectations were exceeded in every possible way. 

Special thanks and gratitude to Don, Dian, Kay and Wayne.

Sadly we have had to meet up with these guys a couple of times now. There service is amazing they go above and beyond. We arranged everything at the Mudgeeraba office and they even travelled all the way to Redcliffe. Took my nana for a final drive past her favourite Redcliffe parade along the beach before taking her to her final resting spot next to my grandad!! It was an awesome service. The respect they show your loved ones is incredible. The whole day was perfect send off for my nana!! Would and will use them again!! Robbie was great as were the whole family involved!!

Took such care of my pop and honoured his memory. This is the second time my family have had a gentle touch to assist in our goodbyes of loved ones. I cannot recommend them highly enough. All staff are friendly and show the families such care which is appreciated in sad times. On this occasion a beautiful vinyl wrapped coffin was used and this made the family funeral service just so much more personal and meaning full of our loved one. Thank you again mark and terry and the team who assisted with frank and heather.

While searching for the perfect urn online, I came across AGTF’s one of a kind artistic urns. I was initially hesitant to order from a company overseas, but nothing else compared. The personal service I received via email from Kay made the ordering process seamless, and the final product is amazing. Thank you for your professionalism and beautiful work during this difficult time.

These people did my dad’s funeral and they looked after everything and I have told a lot of people who want a Australian Company to look after their loved one’s when they time comes.
I have planned for them to do my funeral when the time comes all that my family has to do is pay for it the rest is done. Thank you so much and you are greatly appreciated.

I would recommend A Gentle Touch Funerals to anyone. I lost my mum early May of this year. They not only looked after her but our whole family. They went far and beyond our expectations. Thank you to Don and all the staff.

After being faced with the most awful time in my life, losing my Dad suddenly, we feel so fortunate to have had Kay and the team look after us. My Dad was treated with respect as were we. Every request we made was met and Kay was always ready to answer questions (some strange ones!) or just give a hug when needed. Dad looked amazing when we saw him and we all so appreciate everything you have done for us. Thank you.

Dear Terry and Staff

Thank you for the conduct of the funeral service of my companion, Carole Bell. You and your staff were fantastic to work with and showed great sensitivity, particularly as it involved working interstate. My family and I are greatly impressed at the knowledge and professionalism of your business. Your new premises are an asset to Mudgeeraba, your chapel is beautiful and my family are honoured that our service was the conducted there. Thank you for your advice and recommendations of others to assist in the service. The wonderful comments from a lot of those in attendance, remarked that it was one of the nicest funerals they had attended and myself personally, I must say I am humbled by the experience. The business name A Gentle Touch Funeral is certainly appropriate, especially in the way everything was handled. My family extend our sincere thanks and appreciation. Whilst it was a sad and upsetting time for and my family it was made easier by you and your staff and your Account was far less than I expected. Please feel free to use this letter in any way you feel, and also please feel free to direct and possible clients to me as a recommendation. Yours faithfully and with many thanks

To A Gentle Touch Funerals

I just wanted to let you know what an amazing asset to your team Peter Chapman is. He took of our Father’s funeral with the most genuine and sympathetic attitude and made what would have been an extremely difficult process much more bearable for myself and my siblings. His kindness and concern extended to the funeral itself, where he was so wonderfully attentive to everyone’s needs. This was appreciated more than I can express and will always be so grateful for everything your company has done for us and in the memory of our Late father. It was a beautiful service and one he (our dad) would have been very proud of.

Sincere thanks,

Debra Randell
