Our Facilities

Funeral Chapel & Facilities

At Sylvan Funerals we have a modern funeral home facility located in Ipswich consisting of a large chapel, viewing room, arrangement rooms, condolence lounge and mortuary facility. Also, our sister company Somerville Bros. Funeral Directors funeral home is located in Kalbar for service to Scenic Rim families.

Chapel Venue

Our chapel is a comfortable air-conditioned venue which we utilize for conducting services for families who perhaps do not belong to a religious denomination or do not feel comfortable having the service in a church, crematorium chapel or at the graveside.

To ensure we can provide the best possible service, our chapel is equipped with the latest audio visual technology which can be used for soloist performances, DVD photo presentations, musical tributes, to name but a few.

Condolence Lounge/Refreshments

After the service, families may wish to utilize our condolence lounge to gather with family and friends to share those precious memories, along with catch up with old friends and family. We have available our air-conditioned condolence lounge. You may also wish to organise a delicious catering option for guests. Click here to find out more about our delicious menu.

Viewing Room

Many families wish to view their loved one. This is generally done prior to the service commencing, or alternatively at our facility at 22 Warwick Road, Ipswich. Should your family wish to have a viewing, a suitable time and location can be organised with our funeral planner.


Our mortuary facility is located at 22 Warwick Road, Ipswich. In this facility the deceased is prepared and held until the day of the funeral according to families wishes. To find out more, please download our ‘In Our Care’ brochure. >> Click Here
