About Us

About Sylvan Funerals

Sylvan Funerals is a family owned funeral company, operated by Husband and Wife Vic & Gaylene Salomon. As a family business, we believe in the little things that matter. From placing personal items into the coffin, to playing a favourite song during the funeral service, we are dedicated to helping you create a personal funeral service which reflects the life of your loved one.

Although we are based in Ipswich, we service families throughout all of South East Queensland, from Ipswich, Brisbane and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. With experience in caring for families from all walks of life, faith and cultural backgrounds we are here to help you to plan a personal and dignified funeral service that meets your wishes and financial circumstances.

We understand that planning a funeral for a loved one is an act of love. For our staff it is a privilege to help you carry out that act of love through personal service and attention to detail.

Our modern funeral chapel has off street parking and is equipped with audio visual technology to support photo slideshows and special musical tributes throughout the funeral service.  We provide after service catering in our refreshments room (click here to view menu options).

Today, Managing Director Gaylene Salomon is supported by her son Ramon, daughter Cassie and sister Helen Craik. Proudly we provide a diverse range of funeral services, which include but are not limited to;

  • Burial Services
