Explore The Rich History of Underwood

Underwood is situated in the Yugarabul traditional Aboriginal country of the Brisbane and surrounding regions. Towards the south-east of Underwood towards Beenleigh is the Bundjalung traditional Aboriginal country. The origin of the suburb name is from William Underwood who was an early property owner in the area. William Underwood had established the Commercial Hotel, which operated from the early 1870s through to 1895 on land nearby Beenleigh Road. The suburb Underwood was gazetted in 1975 and was part of both Brisbane City Council and the former Shire of Albert before the creation of Logan City in the year 1978.

Funeral Directors Beenleigh

Bryan McCartney
Managing Director

Bryan has been part of the Funeral Industry for the last 8 years initially as a Funeral Celebrant, then a Funeral Director, Mortician and now as the Managing Director of McCartney Family Funerals.  Bryan believes in creating an exceptional experience for all of our families and providing the highest levels of care to their Loved Ones.  Prior to joining the Funeral Industry, Bryan held senior executive roles in Education, Mining and Renewable Energy and has professional training in Psychology, Human Resources, Law and Celebrancy. “I believe that we are the guardians of our families Loved Ones and along with my Team, I take that responsibility seriously.  Each person that we assist has a different journey and a different expression of grief and loss, so for me, it is important that we connect on a deep level with our families and go above and beyond to support and care for them as best we can.  I’m a big believer in being Brave rather than being strong. We find strength in bravery when we permit ourselves to express our emotions without feeling the burden of “being strong”.  So for this moment, just be Brave.”
Kurt Huigens

Kurt has worked in the Funeral Industry for more than 5 years both here in Australia and in the United Kingdom.  Kurt leads our Funeral Operations Team and ensures that all aspects of a funeral are in place and that services and operational tasks are completed to the exceptionally high standard that our families expect.  A passionate car and motorbike enthusiast, Kurt enjoys riding his R1 and spending his free time being active either at the beach or in the gym. “A funeral can be the most difficult thing some have to go through which is why it’s so important to me to make each and every one as good as it can possibly be.”
Tracy Dixon

Tracy has been a mortician for the last 8 years and has been our Mortuary Services Manager since we opened our operations centre in Underwood.  Tracy’s approach in the mortuary is personal, heartfelt and deeply sincere.  From her own experiences with grief and loss, she uses her passion to ensure that all of our families have an exceptional final experience with their loved one.  Tracy is one of the most compassionate and caring members of our team and everything she does, comes from a place of love, respect and dignity
