We’ve been caring
for the community
since 1887

For six generations, Walter Carter Funerals has been helping families and is the oldest independent, family-owned funeral home in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. We’ve seen a lot of changes over the years, but one thing remains the same – our commitment to excellence in everything we do and our commitment to family.

In an industry that’s now synonymous with large corporations, Walter Carter Funerals is an enduring symbol of the importance of one family caring for other families in times of greatest need.

Some people prefer a more traditional or religious service, while others want to create a truly original service to say goodbye to their loved one.
