About Us

About Sylvan Funerals

At Sylvan Funerals, we are 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. We are never too far away to assist you in planning a personal and dignified funeral service which meets your personal wishes and financial circumstances.

We understand that planning a funeral for a loved one is in iteself an act of love. For our staff it is a privilege to help you carry out that act of love to your precise wishes and is exceptionally rewarding to do so. Our aim is not to be the biggest funeral company, but to be the best through personal service and attention to detail.

With a modern funeral chapel, our facility is equipped with audio visual technology so that families can present photo slideshows and perform special musical items as tributes throughout the funeral service. Also we provide after service catering in our refreshments room (click here to view menu options). For ease of access we also have off street parking available at the rear of our building.

We are experienced in caring for families of all walks of life, cultural backgrounds and faiths, which is a necessity for the growing mulitcultural backgrounds of Australia.

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