Len Russell Funerals is a local Ipswich Family Owned firm that is 100% Australian Owned, our Office, Chapel and Mortuary are situated at our premises in West Ipswich.
Funerals are personal, each person is different and therefore so can their funeral. Len Russell Funerals is here to help you in your time of need.
To determine how much a funeral would actually cost we would need to talk to you or meet with you and find out your exact wishes. The final cost can vary greatly depending on your preferences or those of your loved one. Here at Len Russell Funerals we don’t have package A, B, C, or etc to choose, we have an individual price structure that allows you choose a funeral service that is both fitting to your loved one and your budget.
The person responsible for the funeral account is the one who signs the authorisation for the funeral to be conducted. The account will be issued in the week following the funeral or may be sent direct to a solicitor who is handling the estate. Please remember that to spend so much that it would mean future denial for those left behind would be misguided. A large proportion of the account you receive are expenses that the funeral director has to pay prior to the funeral.
While we endeavour to provide you with a reasonably accurate idea of cost, there are some items such as funeral notices, which can vary from that which was originally estimated.
For every funeral service that Len Russell Funerals conducts, the death must be registered with the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages in the State which the death occurred in. To register the death Len Russell Funerals will need some family information.

As every individual is different, so are each person’s assets and liabilities. It is therefore impossible to list all of the tasks you may be asked to perform. However, once you have taken care of the immediate responsibilities, the following duties may be common to the estate administration.
An executor(s) of a Will/Estate is responsible for:
It is important to note that the onus of responsibility lies with the executor of the estate to administer it correctly. If an estate has not been administered correctly or a claim is overlooked, then the executor will be personally liable for any claim made against the estate if all funds have been exhausted or distributed.
Many people will engage the services of solicitor to undertake the duties mentioned above and others may elect to undertake the duties themselves.
