Serving the community since 1887

Walter Carter Funerals has been caring for families since 1887. We are the oldest independent, family-owned funeral business in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.

In an age of global conglomerates, Walter Carter Funerals has always retained its independence as well as a strong sense of family. This ensures a high level of care and compassion for people going through the most difficult part of their life – losing a loved one.

Well-known throughout the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney and beyond, Walter Carter Funerals is committed to serving the community. Over the course of our history, we’ve conducted more than 60,000 funeral services for the families in our community, including the socially, artistically and politically influential. We provide service and care of the highest quality in a way that helps families and friends through the experience of loss.

Established by our namesake, Walter Carter, almost 130 years ago, the business has been handed down through the generations. Ownership has always remained with Carter family descendants. The current CEO, Dale Maroney, is a 5th generation Carter and her children – Matthew and Emma Maroney – play an active role in the business.

Walter Carter Funerals has been witness to so many changes since 1887, but one thing remains unchanged – our commitment to excellence in everything we do and our commitment to family.

We’re here for the long run. We’re here for our community. We’re here for you.

Let our family help your family.

Matthew, Emma and Dale Maroney
