While providing our services, Tony Hollands Funerals will need to obtain certain information about the deceased’s family. We will collect this information only if it is relevant to making funeral arrangements or complying with legal requirements.
Your information is kept private. The information we require about the deceased and the deceased’s family is lodged with the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages and is required by law.
prevent us from giving friends and certain family members contact information such as phone numbers and addresses. When a funeral notice
is placed in the newspaper, we often receive calls from distant friends wanting to know if the person is someone they knew years ago. Unfortunately, we are unable to give out this information. We will ask for a contact number and pass that on to the next of kin so they can call them back directly if they wish.

- Name, sex, and address
- Date of birth and date of death
- Place of birth and place of death
- Occupation during working life
- If the deceased was born overseas, when the deceased first arrived in Australia
- Whether or not the deceased was of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin
