About Us

Orange Funerals is a locally owned and operated business by John McDonell. John was born and raised in Orange and is the youngest of a large family. The McDonell family have lived and worked in the Orange area for over 100 years, with John’s children to be the fifth generation.  The business has been serving Orange and its districts since the start of 2000. We are also pleased to assist families if they would like funerals to be conducted outside of the Central West.

‘Thank you John, not only for your kindness and understanding during this very difficult time, but also for your professionalism and ongoing support.’

Our service is extensive, beginning for most people at the time we are called, then gently carrying you throughout the details of the arrangement and leading to the funeral service which we hope is a fitting and individual expression of the person you love.

Our long experienced staff of Donna, Doug and John are available 24 hours a day (including public holidays), to attend to your immediate needs. You may be assured of our support, advice and care at all times.

Orange Funerals is a member of the Funeral Directors Association and as such we proudly provide our service in accordance with the ethics of that association.
