Robin Drury is my name and I have been a funeral director for almost 20 years, currently with George Hartnett Metropolitan Funerals at Arana Hills, An Australian Company.
Prior to that my previous role was that of a music teacher…
Some 21 years ago I lost my brother, who, at the time was 20 years old. This was a difficult time for our family, but one that we needed to face together.
Contacting the funeral director was daunting, as we didn’t know what to expect, how much it would cost, and what we needed to do. The funeral director that walked us through that process of grief was compassionate yet professional. Being an English family there were traditions we needed to follow through and nothing was too much effort for him.
The reason I mention this is that I think it important that we have motive in the work we do.
I am passionate about caring for people and helping them find a way to move through the funeral arrangements in a way that is respectful, gentle and possibly even celebratory of that person’s life.
It is a difficult process and nobody really wants to meet a funeral director in a professional way, however, it is one of those certainties we will all face.
In addition to standard funeral service, we also offer prepaid funerals which, in difference to funeral insurance, allow you to choose the funeral you would wish for yourself or someone else, and lock those costs in so there are no more payments moving forward.
I am very proud to be a funeral director and very proud to be representing the Arana Hills community with George Hartnett Metropolitan Funerals. If I can answer any questions or remove any myth, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me.
