Changing the way funerals are done for the better

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)


Picaluna is changing the way funerals are done for the better. It’s a change that needed to happen. More personal. 
More compassionate. And importantly, more affordable.


Picaluna is about community. Walking alongside the bereaved in their most significant time of need, is at the heart of what we do. We’re there for you, guiding, listening and assisting with whatever is needed to create the most meaningful
funeral possible.

We are completely transparent with our pricing, sourcing everything at cost and applying a 35% Service fee to the wholesale cost of the funeral.

Could not have been happier with the caring and attentive service we received from Picaluna funeral services and Kathryn Booth. Despite our dear Dad passing away on Christmas Day, Greg from Picaluna took care of everything for us, and thus followed the most caring and comforting organisation of every aspect of his funeral service. It was a lovely tribute to our dear Dad and we were very grateful and would always recommend Picaluna.

I couldn't have asked for a more thoughtful Funeral Director in Sarah Tolmie. Thank you for the support, care and guidance you gave us it was beyond my expectations and truly sincere. I would absolutely recommend Sarah, and Picaluna Funerals.

Highest recommendation. Very personalised service. Kind, thoughtful and well-organised.

I can thoroughly recommend Sarah Tolmie and End of life services - this is my second tome of entrusting my loved ones to Sarah's care - and she is beautiful, calm and professional on every front - she makes everything special and easy at such difficult times. Thanks Sarah for everything. Margie

Sarah was so caring and helpful who attended our home clearly explained what was required and what options were available to us at this emotional time. Sarah offered us a package well within our financial budget in comparison to other expensive quotes that other funeral services offered and on line and no personal assistance. Talking to Sarah assisted my Aunt in understanding the process and answered all her questions and mine and has kept us informed and welcomed any questions my Aunt needed answering, Sarah listened, her service was excellent and she is lovely to talk to can only give her the highest praise and thanks for all her assistance.

Kindness, empathy, mindfulness, love, reflection, just some of the words to describe our experience with Jacqueline Coan and Picaluna, on the passing of our dear mum. Not only were all arrangements organised seamlessly, the thoughts and generousness of Jaqi made this a much easier experience. Jaqi even wore my mother’s favourite colour, red, at all our meetings and this made for the perfect closure. So many heartfelt thanks.
