Hello, my name is Libby Moloney and I am the founder of Natural Grace funeral directors serving Thomastown. When I was only 26 years old, my husband died. Our daughter was only 2 years old at the time. During this painful time, I was fortunate enough to have my mum by my side to guide me. While this helped me enormously, his funeral was an ordinary service whilst he was not at all an ordinary person. Ten years later I was awakened to a deep knowing that funerals could be so much better, even amazing! People can be cared for at home after they die. I could have had a lock of my husband’s chocolate brown hair if someone had only asked me the question. A campfire could have been the setting for my husband’s funeral with everyone telling stories. I could have been the one to wash his body and dress him. I could have even made a cast of his hand so our daughter had something to hold on to.
Understanding Funeral Directors in Thomastown
From here I embarked on years of research, exploring the rituals and practices of other cultures. It became increasingly obvious that traditional funeral services in Thomastown were incredibly limiting and so in 2013, Natural Grace, Australia’s first holistic funeral practice, was born. Since we first opened our doors, we have cared for over 600 families and been privileged to advise and guide many more. We have invented new ways of doing things that make each and every funeral as special as the person it’s for. We’re incredibly proud to have contributed to shaking up an industry that is in need of a fresh perspective.
