Our History

Image of Mary St GeorgeThe firm was first founded by Phil Stitt and his sister Mary St George (pictured). They converted a residence at Fernvale on the Brisbane Valley Highway into funeral arranging premises and later added other buildings including garaging for the firm's hearses and a fully equipped mortuary.

Mary purchased her brother's share and was assisted in the firm by many staff. Mary passed away in 2006 leaving the firm to her son, who subsequently sold it to K.M.Smith Funeral Directors, a family owned business operating in South East Queensland for 6 generations. Thus, what commenced as a family business remains a family business.

Over time, communities in the Brisbane and Lockyer Valleys welcomed Stitt & St George into their lives.

Now, as Somerset Funerals, our continuing commitment is to serve our community… all families and all faiths. We are sincerely appreciative of the trust that families in the Apostolic Church have placed in us.

Through our association with K.M.Smith, we have been able to further develop our facilities on offer – not only at our traditional premises at Fernvale, but also at our Somerset Chapel (and catering hall) at Lowood.
