• Grief counselling and support when you need it most.

    Grief is a natural response to the loss of a loved one, and is a different experience for every individual. At Australian Pensioner Funerals, we have supported thousands of families in their time of grief, and understand that it is an extremely difficult time.

    As such, we advise our client families to seek support if needed, and recommend the following specialist organisations, which provide caring support, grief counseling and information for individuals experiencing grief and loss.
