Batemans Bay Funerals was established in 1984 by Sid Hewson who started as a funeral director in Goulburn in 1958. After developing a love for the Batemans Bay area while holidaying, Sid opened an agency in 1969.
Having sold his Goulburn Funeral Home in 1984, Sid moved to the South Coast where together with his son Mark, they developed Batemans Bay Funerals.
In 1987 Mark took over the management of the family business and together with his wife Marlene, continued to develop Batemans Bay Funerals. Within 12 months, Parker’s Coastal Funerals and Heads Funerals in Moruya had been purchased and a new Funeral Office and Chapel set up in Narooma giving Batemans Bay Funerals offices in 3 towns – Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma.
Batemans Bay Funerals expanded further in 2000 with the creation of Eurobodalla Ladies Funerals, providing the Eurobodalla Shire with an “all ladies” funeral service led by Marlene.
Following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father, Robert began working in the family business from a young age and commenced full time work in 2000.
Mark, Marlene and Robert together with their dedicated team of caring staff at Batemans Bay & Moruya District Funerals pride themselves on offering the best possible service to the community by understanding family’s needs as one family to another family.
