Who We Are

About Us

We want to give you the opportunity to express yourself! With family and friends, or by yourself, you can create a casket that leaves your lasting impression.

An Idea Formed

Around a table with friends, the topic of funerals came up. Why can’t we have more say? Surely there are those that want to express their individuality to the last moment?
The answer for me was YES! From that conversation came the idea that I wanted to give people the opportunity to do just that!

Hard Work Paid Off

I set about asking people how they felt about personalised caskets. Once they got over the initial gasp of such a topic, their ideas started flowing.
There were many twists and turns along the journey to the final product, but through it all I felt driven to provide this amazing service.
Lachie Marks was excited to get involved. His incredible talent in the tattooing industry is world renown, and he was keen to try a different medium. This has added yet another dimension to the service we provide.
It hasn’t been easy, but I am very proud to present a product that is a blank canvas on which anyone can express their uniqueness for the last time.

A Dream Launched

After many months of planning and orchestrating the final product is here.
For those that want to take their final resting place into their own hands, Last Expressions gives you that opportunity. I hope you enjoy creating something that says YOU. For those family and friends who have chosen to do this, I hope you enjoy saying I LOVE YOU in an amazingly different way!
