Gold Coast Funeral Directors

Rite of Passage Funerals is a modern funeral home run by Yasemin Trollope, a Gold Coast Funeral Director who’s passionate about bringing death out of the shadows and into the light.

Through Rite of Passage Funerals, Yasemin strives to create funerals with meaning, integrity, love and unbridled emotion at a time when grief can be overwhelming for those affected.

Rite of Passage Funerals will compassionately guide you through all the necessary post-death steps including transportation and care of your loved one, filing of relevant paperwork, and planning and organising a funeral or memorial service that caters to your personal needs.

She is here to help you at your most difficult hour.

Yasemin believes that a funeral can be a truly transformational experience. An occasion that can help you heal and create memories for all the right reasons. In addition to modern funeral services, Rite of Passage Funerals also offers green and natural burials, cremations, home funerals and vigils, enlightened memorials, healing groups and much more. We cater to all faiths and backgrounds and are LGBTQI friendly.

There is no denying that having someone close to you pass away is a life-changing event. It can rock you to your core. You might feel lost, empty, numb, scared or angry… these emotions are natural and normal. There is no rule book or manual for grief.

BUT…

there is a way to do death differently; a way that removes the macabre and morbid, sterile and routine. A way that seeks to find solace and create new ceremonies and traditions in honour of your loved one. Rite of Passage Funerals can show you how.
