Catholic Burials Services

Catholic Funerals

Nepean Valley Funerals offers a complete service in the arrangement of Catholic Funerals. Our experienced funeral directors have a sound understanding of the rites of the Catholic Church and they will guide you through the planning process with utmost care and dignity.

We ensure that your loved one is farewelled in the manner that you would expect in accordance with the Catholic faith. We have a strong relationship with our Catholic Parishes and Clergy as well as singers and organists familiar with the complete range of hymns and Requiem Mass settings.  We also organise complete Mass Booklets and Holy Cards.

It is because of our understanding that we are the Catholic Cemeteries & Crematoria Preferred Partner in the Penrith and Western Sydney region. We offer a range of pre-paid and pre-arranged funeral packages to suit your financial needs.

Catholic Cremation and Burial Services

Cremations are now a suitable practice for Catholics and have been since 1963. Burial options include below ground lawn or monumental graves, while above ground we offer crypt, family vault or mausoleum interments. You can choose from a large range of coffins and caskets.  Some of which are of particular significance to people of the Catholic faith.

We’re partnered with Catholic Cemeteries & Crematoria, which is the largest not-for-profit cemetery organisation in Australia.  CCC oversees all aspects of the burial or cremation process, such as choosing your place of burial or memorial, plaques, ornamentations (niche walls, gardens and family trees) and preserving its place for future generations to come visit and reflect upon.

Catholic Cemeteries

Whether you choose burial or cremation, there are five convenient cemetery locations across western Sydney, including:

  • Kemps Creek (includes Sydney’s only Natural Burial Park)
  • Rookwood
  • Liverpool
  • Greendale
  • North Rocks

These locations offer peace and tranquillity for your loved one as well as the only truly consecrated ground. They’re a place where friends and family can come together and celebrate the life of the departed soul, whose memories can be cherished for many generations to come.

COVID-19 FUNERAL SERVICES UPDATE.

From Sunday 14th June, effective immediately, the NSW Government removed the restriction on Funeral services, memorial services and after funeral gatherings from the general limit of 50 people, to instead ensure that all venues apply the one person per four square meter rule for all indoor services, with extra mourners being able to gather outside and view the service on monitors, where they are available. Social distancing guidelines of 1.5 metres between people MUST continue to occur whilst outside at all venues, including ALL burial services. As per Government regulations, you will be asked to supply your name and contact number before being permitted to attend a service, for tracing purposes.

Along with everyone, whilst we welcome the further easing of restrictions, it is important for everyone to have a clear understanding that for all indoor services, the number of people able to attend inside will be dictated by the size of the individual venue, as per the one person per four square meter rule. Effectively, this means that there is no change to the number of mourners allowed indoors, as this rule has been in place for several months now.
The changes have allowed for extra mourners to be able to gather outside these venues, and at burial services, providing that social distancing is maintained at all times. Please note that some venues have placed their own restrictions on numbers outside, to ensure that social distancing can be maintained in their available space. Free recordings and live streaming is available at many venues, or it can be arranged on your behalf where these services are not available.

Right through this pandemic, we and our team have been here to support all of our families through what has been a very difficult period, and like always, we will continue to do so with care and compassion. It is important that if you are in need of our services, or you have any questions about these latest changes, to contact us on 4722 8222 and we will gladly answer any questions, provide you with guidance, advice, and information about the individual numbers at all of our churches, chapels and other service facilities.
Best wishes to everyone,
Jim & Janet.

Dear Jim and Jane,
Thank you for your professionalism and for everything you and your friendly staff did for my mum Parameswari Sivakumaran's funeral. We are grateful for the wonderful way in which you and your team handled the cremation followed by the collection of ashes at Pinegrove and obtaining death certificate with multiple certified copies by the JP. Everything went well and smooth given the Pandemic situation. I greatly appreciate that you were able to organize the pallbearers as that part was too stressful for us to deal with at that time.

From meeting you for the first time, couple of years ago in planning the funeral, to collection of mum from the hospital, assisting us with her dressing, contacting the florist for our requested wreaths with flower choices, to give mum a dignified funeral as per her and our wishes, you and your team were absolutely sensitive, supportive and caring in accommodating our cultural believes and needs.

It really did make a tremendous difference to our family that we were being looked after by someone with genuine integrity and humanity.

God bless you🙏🙏

With kind regards, Visa and Vicky
