Mannings Funerals have been conducting funerals for the Sydney community for the best part of 20 years. Brothers John & Michael Manning with their wives Debbie and Christine, are proud to say that they are one of the few remaining ‘family businesses’ within the whole funeral industry Australia wide. Together with their dedicated family members and staff, Mannings have conducted thousands of funerals for a broad cross section of the Sydney community from famous socialites to individuals who have been accorded State Funerals due to their contribution to society.
The fact that everyone is an individual, every funeral must be personalised. No two people are alike, hence why we try our best to know as much about the individual and how they would like to be remembered to enable us to conduct a service with respect to their wishes.
Once upon a time a funeral used to represent a morbid affair filled with just sadness and a sense of emptiness, nowadays it needn’t be that way. More and more people wish a funeral service to be a ‘celebration’ of one’s life rather than a reminder of their passing. It is at the end of the day the last way for us to show our love and appreciation towards those have gone before us, we assist to allow your loved one to be remembered in the most fitting way.
‘We can choose to lament what could have been, or we can celebrate what was’
