I would like to sincerely thank Rod Latham from Academy Funerals. We found Rod to be kind, thoughtful and incredibly professional. We could not have asked for any better assistance during this sad and difficult time, and have no hesitation in recommending Rod to any other family in need.

I have had the pleasure of working with Brent Ruru and the team at Academy Funeral Services. They make every effort to ensure that the grieving family and friends are taken care of. As an independent celebrant, it is always a pleasure to work along side them.
Professional, caring and empathetic.
