Cremation, Burial and Memorials
Pre-Paid Funeral Plans
Gold Coast Funerals Co. was established with a service-driven philosophy. We give our clients love, care, compassion and understanding when they are at their most vulnerable.
We do this by providing families with beautiful and affordable funerals that commemorate their loved ones exactly as they want.
Gold Coast Funerals Co. is owned by Scott Duncombe, and was created to give families choices. Choices on funeral venues, celebrants and how much to pay for a funeral. We don’t want the family to have regrets about the funeral or be burdened with debt afterwards.
Our strength is our transparent, attention to detail and caring approach that allows us to understand what families want and provide a beautiful celebration of a unique life that brings peace to the loved ones.

Planning a funeral
We understand the feelings of confusion, sadness and sense of loss at the time of arranging a funeral for your loved one. Although a funeral, or memorial, is an opportunity to celebrate the life of your loved one, it is often an overwhelming, emotional and stressful experience.
As an independent funeral company, we are committed to giving your loved one a beautiful service at reasonable prices so that you can grieve without the financial stress of expensive commercial services.
At Gold Coast Funerals Co., you have the choice of several types of funeral services —cremation, burial or memorial; private venue, chapel or church service; unattended or private.

What our families say…
From the moment I made contact with Scott, at THE most searingly painful time in my life to seeing me off after the memorial for my darling husband of thirty-one years, I could not have asked for a more compassionate and dedicated 'friend' for that is how Scott supported me through the most difficult weeks of my life. Not a single suggestion was ever dismissed as being difficult. And not once did I feel pressurised into doing things that were outside the scope of the memorial my husband had planned. Add to this professionalism, a rare and unique sense of compassion beyond achingly pedestrian platitudes. Thank you Scott for supporting me to honour my husband with the same dignity and grace with which he lived his life.
"Attention to detail is impeccable, ran smoothly, the whole team were very caring, respectful and supportive to the family. Our Priest was super impressed at how well organised everything was. Anyone thinking of organising a funeral for any loved one, no matter what denomination, even when approaching the inevitable end, get them involved."
The staff here are incredible ! They were fast, clear and upfront about all costs and processes.
They went above and beyond to help make this important process run smoothly. Coaching me through every step clearly, with compassionate understanding. They happily accommodated our personalised requests, to which we will never forget. Thank you.
Scott was recently assigned funeral director for my beautiful brother’s funeral, but he became so much more than that to each and every person who came together during this time. Words cannot do this man justice — he not only managed this process so professionally, but he became our friend, a friend who helped and supported us.
Thank you, Kay
Hi Scott, I know life will be hectic at the moment given all the things that are going on in our world and negotiating around those constraints. I wanted to thank you again for everything – our friends and family have been constantly telling us what a wonderful occasion it was and how well you and your team conducted the day.
I found Scott helped our family wonderfully throughout this difficult time. Having meeting before was great as he chose to get to know my dad so he could portray him very well. Dads send-off was exactly what he would have wanted thanks to you. It was beautiful. He would have been sitting up somewhere proud as punch, so thank you again from all of the family.
Thank you, Melody.
“My father-in-law passed away on Anzac Day and from the time I contacted Scott, to the time we said our final goodbyes at the funeral, he was able to gently take control and guide us through the process with care and compassion. It’s at times like this that families need gentleness and understanding, and Scott and his team certainly gave us that. Thank you very much, Scott, for helping us through this difficult time, made even more challenging with the Corona restrictions.
