About us

George Hartnett Metropolitan Funerals is Brisbane's leading funeral provider with 14 funeral homes in and around Brisbane, Redland City, Logan City and Moreton Bay.  

Our funeral directors are there to provide guidance and compassion to help you arrange a fitting farewell for your loved one. They promise to dedicate themselves to helping you share and honour the memories that truly matter. 

Our heritage

George Hartnett Metropolitan Funerals was created in 2017 after the merging of two of Brisbane’s most trusted and experienced funeral homes – George Hartnett Funerals and Metropolitan Funerals. Together they bring more than 145 years of funeral experience with both providers having been in business since the 1940s.

Our people

At George Hartnett Metropolitan Funerals our difference is our people. 

We are proud to boast a team of skilled and professional people who are passionate about the role they play in guiding a family through the death of a loved one. 

We believe it takes a particular type of person to provide care under the George Hartnett Metropolitan name. Our team specialise in listening to the family’s needs and values, understanding their emotions, and getting to know the person who is now gone.

Our funeral directors are an enduring source of knowledge for the community, providing information to individuals who need guidance now or for decisions they are making about the future. 

We provide education and information to care facilities including nursing homes, hospitals and community support groups. And each branch in our network has developed unique and key relationships with businesses in their local community and their relevant councils, chambers of commerce and not-for-profit groups.

Our multicultural team

Over the years, our funeral directors have assisted with a variety of cultural and religious services, from Chinese Buddhist to Christian, Russian and Serbian Orthodox funerals amongst others.

Here for you, here for our community

We are members of your local social group, sporting club and church, and we are dedicated to being sensitive to the communities we serve. We are as proud of the support we provide to community organisations and programs as we are of the care and guidance we provide to families.

George Hartnett Metropolitan Funerals hosts two types of events. The first are moving memorial services held at special times such as Christmas or Mother's Day. The second type are informative seminars for groups. At these events our experienced funeral directors can discuss topics such as "Coping with Grief" and "Demystifying Funeral Myths". We can also present information on Estate Planning. These seminars can be very helpful for people wanting more information on topics that aren't often talked about.
