Since 1938 our family has had a tradition of helping other families through difficult times. We’ve been here, helping central Victorian people to celebrate and farewell their loved ones.
Along the way we’ve responded and contributed to community and industry changes. But our exceptional service has remained a trusted constant.
It was retired police sergeant Thomas John Scott who laid the foundations in Mollison Street, Kyneton, who was then joined by his son Jack in the early 1940’s. The business continues today with Jack’s son John Scott and his three children Kelly, Jack and Daniel, making it the fourth generation family profession.
For over 75 years we’ve responded to and pioneered change in the funeral industry.
Thomas started out with a Packard Hearse and a Vanguard Utility. Now you can choose our modified Holden Caprices or your own special transport.
We’ve grown from our humble first premises and now offer comfortable and contemporary facilities, including a fully equipped mortuary and a 100-seat chapel.
Today, the experienced T. J. Scott & Son team serves people from a range of backgrounds, from three central Victoria locations in Kyneton, Gisborne and Kilmore.
Across the years we’ve remained a 100% family owned and personally operated family business. You’ll be cared for by John, Kelly, Jack and Daniel, and their experienced team.
‘I appreciated the professionalism and personal care and comfort provided by John and his staff at this time. My trust in their organisation enabled me to feel confident that Dad’s funeral would be as he would have wished and his family desired.’
You can rely on our eight decades of professional experience and our personal touch to guide your family through funeral, grief and bereavement.
Although death is one of life’s most difficult times, a funeral can be a special tribute, a time of remembrance and a celebration of life.
While we will naturally feel sad, we can honour and acknowledge our lost loved ones in ways that are meaningful and unique.
Each person is distinctive, and the remembrance of their life is an opportunity to reflect that. So a T. J. Scott & Son Funeral can be traditional, contemporary, eco-friendly or something a little alternative. The choice is yours.
We’re here to help you to personalise the funeral service.
