Welcome to Downes & Wilson Funeral Home
Funerals are for the living… it is a process that assists the emotional needs of families, folding death into the circle of life and love.
The trauma and sorrow of losing a loved one make it very challenging to engage in the analysis and decision-making of funeral arrangements. The many services that Downes & Wilson provides, facilitate what is really a very personal decision, an expression of your feelings, and your final tribute to the personality and taste of your loved one.

WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU
Let our family, help you and your loved ones!
A funeral service is a personal undertaking which is influenced by your relationship to the deceased. It provides the opportunity for family, friends and other acquaintances to gather in honor of the person who died whilst being supportive of immediate family and friends.
Let us guide you throughout this challenging time. When a loved one passes in another country, making all of the necessary arrangements can be daunting. Our repatriation service will provide the guidance and support you will need.
Flowers are a traditional part of the burial rite. They are not only beautiful, but also an expression of love, sympathy and respect for the deceased and their relatives. Flowers create a background of warmth while also exhibiting the frailty of life. We work with professional Florists to assist you with your floral needs.
