On behalf of myself and my daughters I would just like to thank you for the personal and caring service you gave in regards to the funeral of Bill Norman.

Dad being dad only had one request and that was that you were to organise his funeral.

Every detail was taken care of beautifully and we could not have wished for a more fitting goodbye to our dearly treasured dad and pop, I feel sure he would have been forever grateful to you.

Special thanks for the gesture of pausing outside his home, what a beautiful thought on your part.

Kind regards
Kathy, Hannah and Sarah

Dear Shaun

We would like to thank you for the beautiful service you provided our family. You made what was a difficult experience for our family bearable. We are so grateful that you were the one to be there for our family to organise all that we asked of you.

We are appreciative that you allowed us to take your folders to mum while she was in hospital. We are grateful that you came to the house to allow us to discuss what needed to be done.

You made the viewing of dad a beautiful experience. It was a very hard thing we had to go through but I am glad I did. Dad looked as though he was just resting. The placement of his hands was exactly how he would have held them. It made me feel at ease that you had so lovingly prepared him for us to say our final good bye. It gave our family closure. Due to the circumstances Dad was taken from us this was a much needed experience.

The service was beautiful. It truly honoured our father’s life.

My words will never be able to express how much your involvement meant to our family.

Thank you.
With all my love


Dear Shaun

I’d like to thank you on behalf of my family for your compassion and thoughtfulness to us in our saddest moments at the loss of our Dad and Mum’s husband of over 64 years. You and your team handled all the arrangements re the funeral efficiently and beautifully and appreciate this.

Thank you for allowing us a viewing of Dad. I did, indeed, feel much better after seeing him in his best clothes and looking peaceful. He looked like Dad again.

For all these things and for arranging matters at the church and for preparing the paperwork also the flowers, which we loved, we thank you. I just wish I had a picture of the Australian flowers. I’m sure Dad would have approved.

Yours sincerely
Julie McNamara
Daughter of the late Edward (Ted) Cecil Henderson

Dear Shaun & Staff

I am writing to thank you for your caring professional conduct when you helped me carry out Gary’s wishes for his funeral in April after he passed away on 5th April.

You made everything so easy for us. Gary had suffered for a long time but more so in recent months. I have to be thankful that he is longer suffering.

Once again thank you for a job well done.

I have been dealing with Walcha Council for the interment of his ashes and it will probably be Monday 15th June and they have agreed to let us place the ashes because my daughter was overseas. I will let you know closer when I will want them.

Kind regards
Margaret Hanson

To Shaun & your amazing staff

Not good with words. Just want to say thank you for the job you have done for Adrianna.

It was beautiful, amazing. Just how we wanted it. You are amazing at your job.

Thank you

Dear Shaun

On behalf of the entire Pursehouse Family, I would like to thank you and your staff for the most wonderful attention to detail you dedicated to the arrangements for Marj’s funeral.

We are all so appreciative of your efficiency but most particularly your compassion and willingness to give Marj the final accolade she deserved.

I worry that we may have taken a little too much time with the eulogy, but we wanted to remember Marj as a person in her own right, not just Fred’s wife or Malcom, Clive and Andrew’s mother. By the time a few ad-libs were thrown in, it was quite long. Thank you for your tolerance if we did.

Thank you for liaising with Kevin, Melissa and Fran.

Please pass on our thanks to your staff, Jenny, Dudley, Bev and Peter for their caring professionalism.

With sincere gratitude
Robin Pursehouse

Dear Shaun

Just a note to say many thanks for an outstanding service at our Mother's Funeral, your professionalism and caring attitude was exemplary.
We couldn't have asked for a better team, to arranging the funeral, the booklet and on the day, it all went so well. Shaun, the hymn was so beautiful & Bill played beautifully and the livestreaming also.

Thank you all once again and kindest regards

To Shaun, Suzanne & Team

Our family would like to express our sincere appreciation for the professional service provided to us during a difficult time following the loss of our husband and dad, James (Jim) McCormack.

From the moment the team took dad into care in the early hours of Monday 18th September, we were comforted by the respectful, caring and dignified support and service provided to our family.

Shaun, we would also like to thank you for extending your service to sing two solo's at dad's Requiem Mass and again the family very much appreciated this special gesture.

Our sincerest thanks

Dear Shaun and Staff

Please accept our utmost admiration for the kindness and professionalism shown by yourself and staff during the recent sad passing of our beloved Lynne.
We would particularly make note of the excellent Order of Service prepared by your Graphics staff and it gave us great satisfaction to distribute the spare copies to those interstate and far away who could not attend on the day.

Kind regards
John, Matthew and Rebecca Black

We recently held an end of life celebration for our Mum at Acacia Function Centre in association with Shaun Hamilton Funerals. Shaun and his team were wonderful in assisting my sisters and I, in planning the best possible send off for our Mum.

The service in its entirety was held at the Acacia Function Centre located within the grounds of the Savannah Park Motor Inn, cnr Burgmanns Lane & Goonoo Goonoo Road, Tamworth NSW.

Amy Crocker was very obliging, and provided an excellent selection of food and beverages in a well appointed air conditioned comfortable versatile space. The service was impeccable and we would highly recommend this venue for any gatherings.

We found on site accommodation very handy for people who needed to travel for the occasion.

As a family we would like to thank you sincerely for the most beautiful Funeral Service and taking part in the Requiem Mass for our father, Colin John Pyrke.

We were very grateful for all your assistance prior to and on the day of Dad's funeral.

It gave us peace of mind with your caring nature of dealing with the funeral. You all conducted yourselves with such professionalism and dignity.

Thank you Shaun for your beautiful rendition of Panis Angelicus. Thanks also to Bill Gleeson for playing the organ beautifully and to Rentfast for the livestreaming. Also the beautiful booklet by the Graphics Staff.
