Thank you for supporting the family through the preparation phase of Mum’s funeral and at the service itself. We were very pleased with the dignity of the arrangements and the staff assisting were most helpful. Please accept our sincere thanks.
A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO…
Established from humble beginnings in 1999 by John & Mary Hetherington, Hetherington Funerals has grown to become a successful provider of funeral services to many families throughout Western Australia.
John Hetherington, who in the early days was a Salvation Army pastor and a regular radio show host on Curtin FM 100.1, committed himself to serving the needs of bereaved families as a small, independently owned, family operated funeral home. In time, John decided to amalgamate his business with Classic Funerals, which at the time was another small and independent funeral home. However, in 2014, John and Mary decided it was time from them to retire from the funeral industry and sold their business to another family owned enterprise who continue to operate the business today.
Keith Wieske with son-in-law Eric Dekker were already active in the funeral industry through their endeavours with Baskerville Funerals. Although a small player in the industry, it was this business that provided them with the necessary experience within the industry to be confident to pursue development and growth. It was therefore a natural progression that when the opportunity to purchase Hetherington Funerals presented itself that the decision was made to combine Hetherington Funerals with Baskerville Funerals. The ‘Hetherington’ name was retained due to the outstanding reputation that it had developed over its years in existence. In 2015, Personal Funerals was also acquired and over the years that followed the business has continued its upward trend in growth and development.
