The MVC Difference
With the mountain as our backdrop, and care our core focus, Mountain View Crematoria (MVC) provides a holding of safety and nurture in the after-death care of your deceased loved one, yourself and your family.
Mountain View Crematoria is a family-owned business and we are 100% Australian owned and operated.
Mountain View Crematoria operates under and embraces the following 4 Pillars
Our all-female team hold dignity, compassion and professionalism at the forefront of our delivery and care for both your deceased love one and their bereaved family. It is our aim to provide as smooth a process as possible as you navigate the road leading to your loved one coming home, or organising their final resting place. There is no ask too big that we won’t endeavour to deliver on, within the means of our capabilities and that of our beautiful facility.
Our approach to cremations follows a strong line of ensuring we honour our environmental sustainability responsibilities. Our equipment is state of the art and features the Joule Cremator. Mountain View Crematoria aims to achieve a carbon neutral balance by 2025. Our recent solar panel installation across our facility is supporting this cause.
In partnership with H.Parsons Funeral Directors, Mountain View Crematoria proudly supports the Flower Reach Project, an innovative program whereby unused flowers from funerals (with the permission of the family) are donated to TAFE Shellharbour Floristry students. The flowers are repurposed into beautiful creations and enable a practical application of their studies. This ongoing partnership has seen many beautiful arrangements created.
Mountain View Crematoria recently inherited the management of plaque production and placement, and we are available to assist you in this memorialisation option. From point of production, to placement in selected local cemeteries and church gardens, Mountain View Crematoria can assist you in creating and placing a plaque to memorialise your loved one.
Our team holds dignity, compassion and professionalism at the forefront of our delivery and care for both your deceased loved one and their bereaved family.
