Why Choose Us

Trusted for generations
The Morley family has been providing Funeral care in Townsville since 1961 and our focus is to ensure that our service and facilities are second to none. We have become the trusted funeral directors of local families for generations. Credibility and trust promotes real peace of mind.

Highly accredited
In Queensland there is no current legal requirement for Funeral Directors to be licensed. Neither is there any form of regulation in place regarding funeral care, nor are there any legislated standards for premises, facilities and equipment. Ask a question. So how does one choose a funeral home that will inspire confidence and trust?

Recognised Funeral Industry Associations are really the only form of watchdog in the industry and membership in these associations is usually a sign of a trusted and well-equipped Funeral Home that must comply with the association standards.

Morleys Funerals is currently one of a very few Funeral Homes in Australia to hold membership in all three fully accredited Funeral Industry Associations:
• Australian Funeral Directors Association
• Queensland Funeral Directors Association
• Selected independent Funeral Homes

Regular inspection and training
As members of these associations, we are required to comply with a strict code of ethics and code of conduct, provide a high standard of facilities, equipment, service and training, as well as having to comply with ongoing professional development. To maintain full accreditation, our facilities and equipment are inspected on a regular basis for compliance. No other funeral homes in Townsville are fully accredited.

One should never assume that all funeral providers are association members or meet these strict standards.

Committed to first class funeral care
The Morley Family is committed to the ideals of first class funeral care and we pride ourselves on a tradition of affordable quality, providing a wide range of choices to suit our clients’ needs. By all means compare our facilities and service and we feel sure that you will be pleasantly surprised with our high standards and the excellent value we offer.

Purpose-built facilities
Our premises were purpose-built to serve the needs of the community. Whether you are looking for a small intimate service or one that will provide for hundreds of people we have what you need.

Proudly family owned and operated
Since 1961 we have been a local family owned Funeral Home, proudly Australian owned and operated.

We value our clients and it will be our privilege to serve you
