Funerals With A Special Touch

Hi and Welcome. We are Ada and Michael, a husband and wife team and the owners of Silver Dove Funerals. We have been Brisbane funeral directors for more than a decade, providing support and guidance for families from all walks of life.

We invite you to watch our short introduction video to discover how our special touch can help you create a beautiful celebration of life, no matter how big or small the occasion may be.

Our Family Funeral Home

Unlike many funeral homes in Brisbane that are corporate-owned and less personalised, we are proudly 100% family-owned.  

From your first interaction with us to the final farewell, our mission is to give you a sense of extended family that you know you can lean on when you need it most. 

With a gentle, more nurturing approach, we provide dignified funeral care for your loved one, warmth, compassionate support and guidance for you and your family. 

We will help you add the personal touches that show what life meant for them and what they meant to you. Helping you create a farewell your loved one deserves and your family will cherish in a beautiful location of your choosing. 

Our Service

We can help with honest and reliable funeral services no matter what your wishes or budget might be.

There are many considerations and steps to take when planning a funeral service, which you can read about on our funeral planning page.

We are experienced funeral providers and will help with all types of services, including:

Non-Denominational (Non-Religious) 

If your loved one was not a follower of any particular faith, a service could be at a private chapel, a memorial or council park. There are also non-traditional locations such as a beach, public function venue, a family home, anywhere you choose within reason. Non-traditional locations can offer more flexibility as to how a service can be organised and conducted.

Denominational (Religious)

We welcome families of all faiths and take pride in our experience with most religions, beliefs, customs and cultures. If you or your family have a preferred church, chapel, temple or place of worship, we will liaise with the leaders of your preference to take care of all your wishes.

There are times when specialised services are required, such as returned servicemen and women, repatriations for loved ones overseas and interstate. We can assist with children, babies and most cultures. Every situation and service is unique.

If you have questions about a particular special service requirement, please call us on (07) 3279 5388.

Options and Costs

Ensuring your loved one receives the best farewell possible whilst keeping within your budget is an important consideration. There are fixed and optional costs depending on the type of funeral, location and the wishes of your loved one and family. We will guide you through the options, creating a detailed, itemised list with prices for you to confirm before we finalise everything.

We received the best of service and care from Ada and Michael during a very difficult time. Ada went over and above to meet a very tight deadline for the funeral and she was always very supportive and helpful during the whole process. Dad's funeral went beautifully and I would highly recommend Silver Dove Funerals. Thank you Ada and Michael!

We stumbled across Silver Dove Funerals after my Mum's sudden death, I'm sure she guided us into Ada and Michael's caring and respectful hands. They were very helpful, down to earth and accommodating, looked after Mum so respectfully, let us set the tone of the service and were never pushy. I can't recommend them highly enough and am very grateful that we found them. I'm sure my Mum had a hand in that. Nicole

Ada and Michael were very helpful and supportive in helping us to arrange my mother's funeral. We were very pleased to be able to get an eco casket that very much suited my mother's preferences, and to be connected to a celebrant who listened to and understood the details of my mother's life and spiritual beliefs. Their follow up after the funeral service to offer further assistance was very much appreciated. A very good service at a very reasonable cost.

Ada and Michael have taken up an incredibly challenging career path that goes beyond just caring for others, and for a small family-owned company that’s been in operation for over a decade, it was nice to see that their approach have endured to remain dignified, respectful and empathetic towards what we needed. The main thing I appreciated about the service was Ada’s compassion and understanding for our personal situation – we had a few unique requests and they were honoured as part of our affairs. It was a difficult time for us, coping with loss and grief, so we sincerely thank Ada and Michael for their commitment to service.

Traditional Burials

Many people still prefer a traditional burial over cremation. Some families already have a burial plot or generational site organised to be alongside other relatives. If you don’t have one organised, we can help, whether for a council, public or privately owned cemetery.

Cremation Services

Cremation funerals are a meaningful and popular way to say goodbye to a loved one. Not only is cremation less costly compared to burial, but it also provides greater flexibility around the service. Families can memorialise the ashes within a family mausoleum or scatter them at a suitable location of their choosing.

Prepaid Plans

Paying in advance is a popular and considerate option these days. It ensures your family won’t overpay in the future and have the extra burden of making last-minute arrangements in their time of grief. We have a lot of experience in this area and are happy to answer all your questions.

when someone passes away


If someone you know has just passed away, many people in their life will need to be contacted. Depending on the circumstances of the passing, some organisations need to be contacted straight away.

We’ve put together a checklist and guide on what to do when someone dies which contains the steps that need to be taken and the people that need to be contacted.

Commonly Asked Questions

Blank Toggle 1
What is your Role?

Funerals can be stressful and emotionally difficult to handle during a time of grief. A funeral director is responsible for the planning and coordination of services that meet the needs of the family and the wishes of the loved one. We assist with every aspect, from the transfer of your loved one, the planning, to the wake and the legal forms and documentation required. We provide the full support and guidance needed to alleviate the burden of trying to handle too much yourself.

What is the difference between a home and a parlour?

They essentially mean the same thing. The name ‘parlour’ (also known as a ‘parlor’) is an old traditional term used after the American Civil War. The deceased were displayed in the parlour of a family home for people to pay their respects before burial. Over time, the name funeral home became commonplace in countries such as Australia.

What makes you different?

We are a family-run business dedicated to providing a level of service that is beyond expectation regardless of budget.
We care for you ourselves, so you don’t get shuffled around from one staff member to the next. When compared against large corporate-owned companies, our level of attention, personalised service and reasonable costs are second to none.
