Meet Somerville Funerals inc Metropolitan Funerals
in Southport

Two funeral homes you know and trust have now come together to better serve families on the Gold Coast. Somerville Funerals and Metropolitan Funerals in Southport combined in late 2017 to create one funeral home: Somerville Funerals inc Metropolitan Funerals, at what was previously the Metropolitan Southport funeral home.

This partnership has given Gold Coast families a refurbished and improved funeral home with state of the art facilities, giving families a welcoming place to celebrate the lives and values of their loved ones.

Our compassionate funeral directors can help you arrange a memorable funeral to celebrate and honour your loved one’s life. We will work closely with you during the days following their passing, providing gentle guidance when you need it most.

Funeral services in Southport

Guardian Funerals can help arrange any type of funeral. For example, you may want to hold the funeral service for your loved one at:

  • The chapel at our Southport funeral home
  • A local church (St Peters Anglican Church, Southport Uniting Church, Guardian Angels Catholic Church, Hope Christian Church Gold Coast and Southport Gospel Church)
  • Another destination in the local area, such as a park or private residence

Following the ceremony, your loved one can be buried or memorialised within the grounds of Allambe Memorial Park which is a 20-minute drive away from our funeral home. Southport Lawn Cemetery and Southport General are both less than 10 minutes away.

Facilities at our Southport funeral home

The Southport funeral home was renovated in 2017 and it is a bright and welcoming space for families to gather and arrange a funeral.

The facilities include:

  • A chapel that seats 75 people with additional standing room for 30 people. The chapel can also be used for after funeral refreshments
  • Two arrangement rooms where you can meet with your funeral director to arrange the funeral
  • Audio-visual equipment so you can play music and show photos or videos that celebrate your loved one

There is parking available for 7 cars at the funeral home car park with additional parking available on surrounding streets such as Nind and Davenport streets. There is also a council car park 120 metres away. Our funeral home is accessible for visitors in wheelchairs and with other mobility aids.
