Stan Crapp Funerals History

Stan Crapp Funerals is an established funeral home formed to serve the communities of Kiama, Berry, Nowra, Gerringong and the greater Illawarra. We were established as a local service under the leadership of Mr Stan Crapp himself, more than 50 years ago and we have continued to serve the local community since. The Stan Crapp Funerals history is a long one and we have always believed in supporting our local community.

In the left photo above, you can see Funeral Director Stan Crapp himself as he walks ahead of a hearse and ceremonial fire engine. This was the funeral of Captain 'Wattie' Holden and was one of the largest to have taken place in Kiama at the time. This photo was taken in July of 1960. To the right you can see a historical photo of Kiama, taken from the hill overlooking the Kiama Blowhole and local beaches. While the area has changed since this photograph, Stan Crapp Funerals has remained.


Stan Crapp Funerals

At Stan Crapp we service a large range of the Illawarra and South Coast. From Nowra and Bomaderry, 7 Mile Beach to Shellharbour and out west to Kangaroo Valley. We are here to assist you when you need us most. Our team is flexible and is always ready for when you contact us.

The chapel itself is located in Kiama, on Manning Street. It has seating for 120 family and friends but it is also appropriate for smaller, personal services. We offer comfortable facilities with air conditioning, catering, music, video presentations and we encourage special arrangements.

The team at Stan Crapp is able to provide services based upon your request and we have a history of fulfilling these requests. We believe that no service is alike, as no person is alike. We encourage you to personalise your service and please feel free to ask our Funeral Directors for their assistance, advice and expertise.



The Local Community

Historically, Stan Crapp Funerals has been 100% locally and Australian owned. We are happy to report that this is still the case today. We have strong links to our local communities and local groups whom we proudly support. At Stan Crapp Funerals, we believe in giving back to the community and below are some of our sponsorships:
