About us


J.A. Dunn Funeral Directors became a member of the InvoCare family of funeral homes in March 2018, combining our local connections and solid reputation with InvoCare's expertise to deliver outstanding customer service to Launceston families from our funeral home on Brisbane Street.

We have served the Northern Tasmanian Community for over 135 years. We pride ourselves on being large enough to offer the full range of funeral services and facilities.

At the same time, we are small enough to be able to spend the time to genuinely care for you and your family.

Our history

A 135 year history in Launceston.

In 1883 an Irish immigrant, John Dunn, established a stone masonry business in a yard where Launceston’s Town Clock now stands. In 1893 Mr Dunn’s sons Thomas, John & William joined the firm and moved the yard to Brisbane Street, firstly on the corner of the Kingsway and then, in 1909, to the present site.

In 1954, Mr JA Dunn, grandson of the company's founder, entered the firm into the funeral industry. The business gradually expanded to become one of the most respected, both in the local community and throughout the funeral services industry. Today, it is "Jack's" children and grandchildren who continue the tradition, making J.A. Dunn Funeral Directors one of Tasmania's oldest continually family owned & operated businesses.

In March 2018, J.A. Dunn Funeral Directors became a member of the InvoCare family of funeral homes. We continue to serve Launceston families from the same address on Brisbane Street, where we've been since 1909.
