Welcome to Howard Squires Funerals
Welcome to Howard Squires Funerals. At our funeral homes, we understand that saying goodbye to a loved one is never easy. When it comes to that difficult time, the thought of organising a funeral for a loved one can be overwhelming and you can be pulled in many different directions – both emotionally and practically.
With three funeral homes in regional Victoria, and one in Corowa-Rutherglen servicing Southern NSW and North-Eastern Victoria, our gentle and caring approach to funeral planning brings calming reassurance when you need it most, guiding you through every arrangement and providing a source of support in your time of grief.
Although funerals, cremations, and ceremonies may vary greatly according to customs and beliefs, Howard Squires Funerals’ depth of experience and resources stand at the ready to honour and remember a life that has passed according to your faith and tradition.
If you require information in respect to funeral costs or our pre-paid funeral plans, our funeral directors will provide an itemised fee proposal outlining all of the services and costs involved with a funeral, so as to reflect the life of your loved one and your family's needs.
This site also features some creative innovations, including a Funeral Notice section with information regarding current or recently directed funeral services, and the ability for friends to share a message of condolence, a photo or memory, or light virtual candle in tribute to a loved one or friend.
Whether you want to have a motorcycle with a side car to carry the casket, a cavalcade of vintage cars, special décor or a unique location we can arrange the perfect funeral for your loved one.

What is the Role of Funeral Directors?
The Funeral Director’s biggest role in assisting a family with a funeral service is to provide a sense of security and calm.
The loss of a loved one is hard enough without having to worry about the post-demise nitty gritty and logistics including registering a death, arranging a funeral service, a burial or cremation and perhaps even a wake.
As funeral directors, our team at Howard Squire Funerals believe our most important function is to take the stress and worry out of arranging a funeral so you can focus on comforting your loved ones.
Some of the aspects that a Funeral Director does in the planning and preparation for a funeral service include:
- Taking care of the logistics – such as arranging for transport of the deceased to the funeral home
- Completing important paperwork, such as the registration of death
- Liaising with cemeteries, crematoriums etc.
- Assisting or arranging for live streaming or video of the service
- Liaising with the service venue
- Helping to personalise the service
These need to be completed diligently to ensure the proper preparation of the funeral service, and a lot of families prefer to leave them to a professional.
At Howard Squires Funeral, we are committed to completing these important duties with the care they deserve, so you can focus on your family.
