Are you searching for non-traditional funeral homes in your area? Picaluna is all about offering genuine, personal funerals, helping family, friends and the community to honour, mourn, celebrate, heal and rejuvenate.

A little about us

What’s in a name?

Our founders were inspired by some extraordinary images of a
cliff-top funeral for a still-born baby named Luna. It was heart-felt, community-lead and beautiful. Little Luna gave us our name. Grazie Luna.
(Italian: piccolina – little one)

We found our Picaluna Funeral Director to be flexible, efficient and personable. She understood what we wanted and directed proceedings in a very professional yet empathetic way. 10/10.

When my beautiful Mother, June Harrison, passed away suddenly three weeks before Christmas my family were not only grieving but unexpectantly having to organise her funeral arrangements. As is the case with most families we really didn't know where to start. After doing some online research and talking to various Funeral Directors including Rachel Bracken from Picaluna Beautiful Funerals, as a family we all agreed wholeheartedly that we would be in good hands with Rachel. From the start Rachel was very professional, knowledgeable, compassionate, friendly and caring. Even though almost all arrangements were long distance, Rachel guided us through the planning process and other necessary arrangements explaining all the options and listening to our requests over many long phone conversations, she made herself available at all times and nothing was too much trouble. As well as all required arrangements, at our request Rachel organised Live Streaming, flowers and light luncheon refreshments at a beautiful Memorial Gardens location that our family had chosen, everything was perfect. Our Mother's funeral was a beautiful celebration of her life and we cannot thank Rachel and her lovely colleagues enough for their respectful, professional and caring guidance on the day. If any of my friends or family were to find themselves in the unexpected situation of having to plan a funeral, I would have no hesitation in recommending Picaluna Funerals. Thank you again Rachel, we will never forget your help, you are a beautiful caring person. Lyn.

I cannot rate Kerri high enough. She went above and beyond to make things happen smoothly. The care, compassion and consideration Kerri puts into her work made the whole process so special. I received many compliments on how well Kerri and her team worked together to create a truly beautiful service.

In the worst of times, Jacqueline and her team from Picaluna maid everything little bit easier. Every small detail was taken care of, Jacqueline was very respectful of our culture and religion. The care and compassion our family received was excellent, the team are simply beautiful and caring bunch of people. Very grateful for the service, so thank you! Highly recommended.
