Regarded as Brisbane’s oldest funeral home, K.M.Smith has had the privilege of serving Brisbane families since Kate Mary Smith established her business in 1883, becoming Queensland’s first lady funeral director. Today her company remains proudly 100% family owned, the chairman of the board is her great, great, grandson and her legacy of offering premium service at a surprisingly affordable price continues.
K.M.Smith is a full-service funeral director offering both cremations, burials, memorials, and repatriations. We offer the highest standards with the broadest of funeral experience– from the most detailed services to the simplest. We believe that what goes into a funeral should be chosen by you and we take pride in understanding your wishes and delivering them on the day. We don’t have fine print or pressure selling – when it comes to costs, we communicate what is involved and clearly explain the processes and associated fees and prices related to your choices.
The Kate Mary Chapel at our elegantly historical Bowen Hills location offers a unique location for families to have a service, which can be streamed across the world, or to simply spend time with a loved one privately prior to the funeral. With offices located throughout Brisbane, we are available 24 /7 with a member of staff always on the end of the phone to assist at any time.
We have used Sureplan Funeral Bonds for those who also wish to put funds aside for their funeral. Our website kmsmith.com.au features all our products, services, pricing, and history, along with additional information on what to do when someone dies; funeral options; upcoming and past funerals; news & events.
