All About Us at Families First Funeral Services The Independent Funeral Specialists Families First Funeral Services is an independent family owned company that was established in 2009. After working as a Funeral Celebrant and arranger for a number of years Carol felt there was an opportunity to provide professional, dignified and affordable funerals in Victoria. Since establishing the business Families First Funeral Services has gone from strength to strength and Carol now employs her daughter Rachel, son Liam and several other industry experts who all have a passion for ensuring those in our care are treated with the utmost dignity and respect. Additionally, we utilise several excellent and very experienced celebrants, Jan Tully, Harley Kitchen and Ann Aldridge just to name a few. As a civil funeral celebrant with over 30 years’ experience I bring a deep professional and personal commitment to assisting those who grieve. Together we will create a time which reflects the unique life being celebrated – words, music, readings and personal memories can be woven into a seamless tribute which reflects the wishes of family and friends. All lives – whether they are measured in minutes or decades – bring unique gifts into the life experience of those who love them. I deem it an honour and a privilege to assist you in acknowledging those gifts in an authentic time of reflection. For many, life is not simple and holds within it complexities which can be addressed in a respectful and thoughtful manner. Regardless of what life has held for an individual, I am able to offer guidance and suggestions to the bereaved, as requested, as we create an appropriate and honest ceremony together. -Jan Tully Picture Picture Harley Kitchen is a freelance funeral celebrant who over the last twelve years has conducted over 1100 services with funeral companies across Melbourne. From the first meeting with a bereaved family to the conclusion of the funeral service, Harley’s aim is to respond and lead with respect, sensitivity and compassion. He tailors the service to meet the wishes of the family, as they grieve for and celebrate the life of their loved one, and is comfortable with both secular and religious themes. Harley lives in Heathmont with Ruth and they have two adult children who are themselves married and have produced beautiful grandchildren for him and his wife to enjoy! Harley is also a workplace counsellor and a chaplain for the CFA. Honouring the life of someone you love and have lost is so important. As a funeral celebrant I am passionate about helping you to honour the life of your loved one. I support, listen, guide and assist you in creating a ceremony that embraces the special story that was their life, including any cultural, faith based or personal and family traditions, bringing relevance and meaning to your memories. I am there to support you every step of the way, as together we create a personalised farewell for your loved one. Ensuring everyone is included and heard and to choose their way to participate in the ceremony.
