We have been serving the Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama and Sutherland Shire areas in New South Wales since 1936.
At Hansen & Cole Funerals we are privileged to be able to help families celebrate and honour the lives and values of loved ones each day. We are an Australian funeral service provider, and a member of the Guardian Funerals network.
We remain committed to the safety and wellbeing of the local community, the families we serve and our dedicated team members.
We want to reassure the community we uphold the highest standards of hygiene, cleanliness and social distancing guidelines.
In response to recommendations from the NSW Government made on August 2, we are also ensuring our staff wear face masks at funeral services and during arrangements and families may also wish to wear masks at this time. We have made this decision based on the health advice that the wearing of masks is the fourth line of defence in addition to staying home if unwell, exceptional hand hygiene and social distancing.
We are for you 24/7 and keeping everyone safe and respecting your loved ones is our priority.
At Hansen & Cole Funerals we help bring your family together to arrange a funeral service that truly celebrates and honours the life and values of your loved one.
Our funeral directors are with you every step of the way, keeping you informed and guiding you through the arrangements as much or as little as you need. We can tailor the service, creating a customised funeral that respects, honours and reflects the values and the life that was lived.
In the Book of Ideas, funeral directors have shared some of their stories of how families have honoured their loved ones, so that you can draw inspiration for your own funeral arrangements.
Adding a personal touch can make the funeral feel more authentic. Our funeral directors can help you create a funeral that honours and celebrates the life and values of the person who has passed away.
When you're organising a funeral service, one of the first decisions will be whether you are organising a burial or a cremation. This choice will directly impact the type of funeral service you will have.
Preplanning your funeral makes sense. A prepaid funeral takes the emotional stress off your family, locks in your funeral cost at today’s price, and allows you to plan things your way.
A repatriation is where a deceased person is moved from one state or one country to another so that final rites can be performed there. Our funeral directors can arrange repatriations interstate and internationally.
Each memorial park will have a range of memorial options for you to choose from, suitable to all budgets, beliefs, faiths and cultures. We can recommend a number of memorial parks and gardens in New South Wales.
Hansen & Cole Funerals are as proud of the support we provide to a wide range of community organisations and programs as we are of the care and guidance we provide to families.
We are members of your local social group, sporting club and church. We use our time, our network of community contacts, our participation in, and our financial resources to support organisations around us.

At Hansen & Cole Funerals we understand your values, and care about them too. For our values define us all. Our lives. Our loves. Our choices. They make us who we are. And they live on in the hearts and minds of those we love long after the person is gone.
Values – we all hold them dear. Some drive us, some inspire us and they can say a lot about us.
