Providing local and professional funeral services for over 50 years.
Supporting the Berry Community
Located just north of Berry, Stan Crapp Funerals in Kiama is the local funeral home to care for the local community. Our team grew up in the area, have lived locally for years or are residents of Kiama and the Shoalhaven.
We understand the local area and the community. We know how to assist families and how to provide caring and loving funeral services.
Care For Local Aged Care
We work with local aged care to support residents and their family.
Stan Crapp Funerals has developed relationships with the local aged care homes in Berry. Many residents of aged care are now coming to the Shoalhaven from out of the region. We know that when the worst happens, this can be especially challenging for families.
For that reason, Stan Crapp Funerals can work in conjunction with a network of funeral homes and can provide funeral services outside of the local area if needed. We can provide:
Our team of funeral directors and mortuary staff are highly skilled. We can assist in bringing your loved one to a city, town or home of your choosing. Whether that be in NSW, or out of state.
We are also able to prepare a service locally and for family and friends to arrive from out of the area. Please ask our funeral directors how we can best assist you and best care for your loved one.
If you require our assistance, ask your aged care home to call Stan Crapp Funerals. We can assist loved ones in these homes, and more:
Planning Ahead With Stan Crapp Funerals
We are able to offer secure pre-paid, pre-arranged and funeral bond options for the Berry Region.
Planning Ahead is a common way for people to reduce the burden on their families, when they pass away. Planning Ahead can be as easy as an appointment with one of our team members. Our team can meet with you in our office, in a local café or in your home.
Further, this is a free service. We do not require a call out fee or anything else. Should you want to reconsider or hold off, there is no pressure from us. We offer all three main options for Planning Ahead, and each is a safe and secure way to prepare for the future.
Should you have any questions at all about Planning Ahead, please speak to one of our team members. Alternatively ask your family for advice. We are more than happy to assist in any way.
We can meet with families all over the Shoalhaven, in Berry, Gerringong, Gerroa, Nowra and further.
Pre Arranged - This is the easiest option available. You can arrange as much or as little as you like. Often, families provide us with the difficult information which is required when a person passes. Others will choose a location, music, imagery and more. It is totally up to you.
Pre-Paid - This option is more involved. It allows people to choose the services they want, and pay for them. The advantage of this is you can arrange exactly what you would like (making for a very personal funeral). Also, it locks in prices. Things become more expensive over time and by pre-paying you will never pay more than for items or services.
Funeral Bonds - These are often chosen due to their benefits around the Aged Care Pension Asset Test. As these are often exempt and allow people to financially prepare for the future. These bonds are held by a third party (a licensed and professional financial firm), which invests the bond and accrue interest. These are best for preparing financially.
