Our Services

SEO Friendly Title: Funeral services, Benalla, Euroa, Chiltern and Mansfield

Planning a funeral can be a testing and trying time, often requiring painful and difficult decisions during one of life’s most challenging situations. NJ Todd Funeral Directors understand the difficulty of this time and ease the burden by providing professional, compassionate and caring funeral services in Benalla, Euroa, Mansfield and Chiltern districts.

In each centre our Benalla-based funeral directors utilise the various churches and their clergy for people aligned with a particular religion. For non-denominational funerals we use the various halls and venues each centre has to offer. When a person passes away, NJ Todd’s undertakers make contact with the family and usually arrange the funeral at the family home or at the firm’s Benalla funeral home.

Funeral services in Benalla chapel

NJ Todd Funeral Directors has a long-standing agreement with the Uniting Church to use the church’s hall next to its funeral home in Benalla as a chapel, and has carpeted, painted and installed air conditioning in the hall in return for exclusive access throughout the year for civil funeral services.

Viewings

NJ Todd has viewing rooms for families at its Benalla funeral home. In other centres NJ Todd’s undertakers normally organise viewings at the relevant church or venue of the funeral.

Funeral service catering

When arranging a funeral, N.J. Todd’s funeral directors discuss the various catering venues available and then liaise with the preferred venue to arrange catering on behalf of the family.

Funeral service booklets

The undertakers with NJ Todd are the conduit between the church, celebrant, family and the printers for orders of service funeral booklets. Most times NJ Todd’s funeral directors set out the draft copy of the order of service from information provided by the clergy, celebrant or family, and then forward the service booklet to the firm’s local printer for printing.

Music and audio visual presentations for funerals

Families seeking personalised music and audio visual presentations for funeral services need only provide photographs and their music preferences to NJ Todd. The firm’s funeral directors will then create a unique and personalised presentation for the service. NJ Todd has a range of laptop computers, screens, projectors and PA systems that it takes wherever required. The funeral director also has access to an extensive music library and the licences for public use of copyright-protected music, and ensures music plays at the appropriate time during the funeral service.

NJ Todd Funeral Directors provides a full complement of funeral services to Euroa, Mansfield, Chiltern and Benalla districts. For more information please contact us online or call one of our funeral homes.

Our Services: Pre-Paid Funerals

SEO Friendly Title: Pre-paid funerals in Benalla, Euroa, Chiltern and Mansfield

NT Todd’s pre-paid funerals for Benalla and district set in place your future funeral arrangements at today’s prices. The beauty of this arrangement is that regardless of what prices do after you’ve set in place your pre-paid funeral, whether it be five, 10, 20 or 30 years or more before you pass away, the cost of the funeral does not alter as it has all been covered.

Funds for our pre-paid funerals are lodged with the actual funeral fund, which is a completely separate third party entity from the funeral directors. Money in the funeral fund is guaranteed and held in trust in a bank account until such time as a person passes away. Then the funeral director notifies the funeral fund and requests a redemption of pre-paid funeral funds in that person’s name.

If you would like to discuss pre-paid funerals in Benalla, Chiltern, Mansfield or Euroa districts, please contact us online on (03) 5762 2461 to make an appointment.

Our Services: When Someone Dies

SEO Friendly Title: NJ Todd Funeral Directors, Benalla, Euroa, Mansfield and Chiltern

Nothing can fully prepare you for the death of a loved one but the undertakers with Benalla funeral directors NJ Todd Funeral Directors have gathered information to at least guide you through the general processes and formalities that occur in the first 24 hours following a death.

This guide addresses a wide range of issues, from who to contact following a bereavement, right through to funeral arrangements in Benalla or other areas covered by our funeral home, including Euroa, Chiltern and Mansfield districts.

JN Todd, undertakers in Benalla, Chiltern, Euroa and Mansfield

The initial 12 to 24 hours after death

The initial 12 to 24 hours after somebody has died can be demanding and difficult, and many people struggle as they wonder what to do and who to contact.
Here is NJ Todd Funeral Directors’ short guide to what should happen, what you should do and who you should to talk to following a death.

  1. Call an ambulance immediately. This is crucial because paramedics might be able to resuscitate the person. If the person cannot be resuscitated ambulance staff can confirm death. It is not necessary to call an ambulance if a person has died in hospital.
  2. Following confirmation of death, call the deceased person’s doctor. It is necessary to call a doctor for the completion of a death certificate. If you are unable to contact the doctor, call Benalla Health or your relevant hospital and staff at the hospital will advise you on the next steps for acquiring a death certificate. Please understand that our funeral directors in Benalla and district are unable to proceed with funeral arrangements until a death certificate is completed.
    When a person has died in a hospital the hospital will perform many of the steps involved with the death certificate. NJ Todd’s undertakers can start work on funeral arrangements once the death certificate is issued. If the person has died in an aged care facility or private hospital which does not have a mortuary the aged care centre or hospital might contact NJ Todd Funeral Directors and organise for our undertakers to transfer the body to our funeral parlour’s mortuary.
  3. The death certificate is necessary for registration of a death, and the certificate must be signed by the doctor who confirmed the death. Once the death certificate bears the doctor’s signature it is lodged with the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages. NJ Todd’s funeral directors are able to register the death on your behalf if required and will also arrange for you to obtain a certified copy of the deceased’s death certificate. The certified copy is legally recognised proof of death and beneficial when liaising with solicitors, banks and other authorities on the deceased’s behalf. Please be aware that while death certificates generally take about three weeks to process, a certificate can take months to become available should the death involve an autopsy or coronial inquest.
  4. The coroner becomes involved in any death involving certain circumstances, including:
    The death is suspicious or involves suicide, homicide, poison or drug overdose.
    An accident or fire caused the death.
    The person died at work.
    The death was unexpected and occurred in a nursing home or a hospital.
    The person died while living in a government institution.
    The person died in a public place.
    Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is suspected.
    The death necessitated a post-mortem examination.
    The deceased had not visited a doctor in the previous three months.
