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.

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.
