Rockhampton funeral home – about Finlayson & McKenzie Funeral Directors

Rockhampton Funeral Homes

The history of the Rockhampton funeral home/firm of funeral directors, Finlayson & McKenzie, goes back to 1885. In fact, it could have been the original mortuary in the city. The office at 56 William Street bears the date of founding and has remained in the same location since the beginning. Since then, the firm established branches in Yeppoon and Mount Morgan.

Finlayson & McKenzie prides itself on professionalism and attention to detail. It’s the small touches that make a big difference. We adhere to the Quality Standards and Code of Ethics of the Australian Funeral Directors Association.

Grant Perry (manager) was also a previous President of the Australian Funeral Directors Association – making us more than qualified to meet all your funeral needs.

Our long history in the industry has helped Finlayson & McKenzie build a strong reputation within Rockhampton and surrounding areas. We have the latest fully equipped and only private licensed mortuary in the region, erected in 1991. We also employ the only fully qualified embalmer in Rockhampton.

Grant is a member of the Australian Institute of Embalming, the British Institute of Embalming and the Kenyon International Disaster Response Team. The business has been involved in international affairs. After the Tsunami of 2005, Grant was phoned by Kenyon International to do a consignment to Phuket, Thailand, to assist in the embalming and repatriation of deceased to their home countries.

Finlayson & McKenzie were honoured to be asked to assist at such a devastating time and were happy to have the qualified staff to help. Our funeral directors are experienced and qualified in all aspects of the funeral industry.
