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)

Jaqi and Picaluna did a wonderful job at proving the funeral and care that our family needed.

Jaqi was so compassionate in the way she guided us to organise a beautiful day to celebrate the life of my precious Dad. She showed so much empathy and respect both to us as family members and to my beautiful Dad. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and such a fitting way to honour my Dad. I am so grateful that we were blessed to have Jaqi journey with us as we farewelled our wonderful Dad. She showed all of us kindness and love.Thank you so much Jaqi

Going through our dad's end of life care and funeral was a very difficult time. We had the most amazing help from Anne Lee, Funeral Director, Picaluna Beautiful Funerals. The care, respect, service and professionalism was 110%. With Anne's help our family put on a loving and personally tailored service for our dad. I would definitely recommend Anne.

I would highly recommend Anne, as she helped us through the most difficult time of losing our mother. Anne was professional, nothing was too much trouble and Anne was caring and considerate at all times. Anne explained everything with clarity and showed the upmost respect to my mother and our family. It made such stressful time easier on all of us.

Anne Lee and the team did a wonderful job. Anne was helpful and compassionate even in the days following the funeral. The flowers were commented on by several friends as they were so beautiful. Also the photo montage was professional and fitted perfectly to the music we had chosen

A funeral or as I prefer, a “Celebration of Life”, is never easy. There’s so much to do. Cheryl was both professional & extremely kind. Cheryl guided our family through the process which resulted in a beautiful Celebration for my wife, Libby.
