Guiding You Through: The Next of Kin’s Journey


In the aftermath of loss, Funera Sydney is here to compassionately guide you through the crucial role of the next of kin.

Essence of Next of Kin

They are the closest living relative, entrusted with vital decisions and the first to be informed, as designated in the Last Will & Testament.

Legal Order Simplified

Australia's legal order prioritises:

  • Spouse or partner
  • Adult children
  • Parents
  • Siblings
  • Executor in the Will
  • Personal representative chosen by the deceased
  • Person identified by the Coroner

Key Responsibilities Made Easy

In the absence of a valid Will:

  • Organise organ donation and post-mortem examinations
  • Notify family and friends
  • Register the death within 30 days
  • Arrange the funeral
  • Finalise financial matters
  • Administer the estate
