There are many things that set our business apart from other funeral homes. Here are some of the differences that we would like you to know about.
Convenient, comfortable and accessible locations.
We are the only funeral director with funeral homes on both sides of the border. Our two funeral homes, in Albury and Wodonga, are purpose built to the highest standard and have both been recognised with building industry awards. There is plenty of on-site parking and both offer a spacious modern chapel, comfortable reception rooms and state of the art facilities.
Due to the outstanding level of commitment and service to families, Lester & Son is the leading provider of funeral service in the Albury Wodonga area. Our reputation is second to none and many families have used our services for generations. See reviews of our service here.
Your needs are our priority
Our service revolves around your needs. We provide options, but you are in control of all decisions. We understand that there is only one chance to get it right at a funeral, so we ensure all details are completed as requested by you.
Lester & Son offers a free, confidential, one to one bereavement support service to help you through the grieving process so that you can transition to life without your loved one. Just ask us for details.
The business owners work in the funeral homes on a daily basis.
Darren, Julie, Andrew and Pauline are proud of the service offered and are happy to be contacted about any aspect of their service. We continually monitor our quality of service to ensure high standards are maintained and all family expectations are fulfilled.
Our staff are specifically chosen for their exceptional personal qualities. They genuinely want to assist families through the difficult process of arranging a funeral. They listen to you, understand your needs and work attentively to ensure you and your family are completely satisfied. If requested, we can offer an all-female service.
Transparent, Fair and Reasonable Prices
We offer a balance of fair pricing and quality service. We itemise and clearly explain all costs at our arrangement meeting. Or we gladly provide an estimate on request. We always provide our best price first and will work within your budget.
