Ada and Michael are complete angels. They guided our family with such compassion to create a beautiful funeral service. They were so professional, caring and ensured that every detail in the lead up was done with such care. To have them both with us every step of the way was reassuring and so very welcomed. Thank you Ada and Michael, you took the pressure off everyone during such an emotional time. We thank you so much.
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.
Very professional and caring
Ada and Michael looked after my Father several years ago and quite recently, my Mother. I cannot speak more highly of the genuine warmth, compassion, respect and support that they gave me and my family during such a difficult time. Ada was very open and clear about costs and charges, she never tried to "upsell" or suggest that we do more than we felt was appropriate. The professionalism and integrity that they have demonstrated to me on both occasions was unwavering. I would not hesitate to recommend Silver Dover to anyone.
During this challenging time, the team at silver dove guided us through every step of the process in an efficient, respectful and professional manner. We were pleased with how all aspects of our final goodbye to our loved aunty went.
Efficient, respectful and professional. I am so grateful that we found an organisation that made us comfortable in such a difficult time.
Silver dove funerals helped us put together a wonderful and fitting service for my sister, I would give them more than 5 stars if I could
Ada and the team have been a pleasure to deal with.
