My name is Alan Parsons, Funeral Director, Managing Director and Chief Car Washer with Parsons Funerals. My great grandfather started this business over 120 years ago and one of my greatest rewards today is to be joined in the business by my son Anthony, the fifth generation of Parsons Funeral Directors.
The horse and carriage have gone but the one constant I am dedicated to upholding is to remain a local family owned and 100% Australian owned and operated company. I believe doing this ensures I can continue the family legacy in contributing to and supporting the economy, growth and stability of our beautiful Illawarra.
Parsons is staffed by an exceptional team of 50 local employees. We support local jobs by using local services and suppliers. Our mortuary is a fully equipped facility where your loved one is cared for locally, no transporting between Sydney and Wollongong. We sponsor, donate to and support local charities and agencies. I am proud of my family history in the Illawarra community and it bears repeating, we are 100% Australian owned, not the 51% it takes to qualify for the Ausbuy logo. All our business stays in this country.
As a fourth generation family owned business, we know how to concentrate on caring for your needs. Together with the excellent staff, you can rely on us to get the details right to the highest standards. It will be my honour for H.Parsons Funerals to care for you and your loved ones.
Culture or religion will generally determine the type of service, but there are many alternatives to personalising a service.
From the very start, we simplify the process of pre-arranging or arranging a funeral by making an appointment to meet at your home or in one of our four locations; Wollongong (Head Office), Bulli, Dapto or Warilla.
At H.Parsons not only do we take care of all the funeral arrangements, we also attend to registering a death with the Department of Births Deaths and Marriages, apply for a legally acknowledged Death Certificate, notify Centrelink or Veterans Affairs, assist with the death and funeral notices and much more.
