Horder and Thorley Funeral Services


Patsy Horder's business, Glen Innes' Horder Family Funerals goes back over 90 years, previously being R.T.Lightfoot and Co. Patsy and her husband Phillip Horder bought the business in 1990 and now operate with the help of their daughters Nicole, Amanda and son in law Daniel.


Horder and Thorley Funeral Services

abstractal was commissioned by Patsy Horder to create a website that the business could maintain themselves alongside with their business partners Thorley & Sons Funeral Services. Thorley & Sons Funeral Services itself, was established in 1870 in Inverell, both businesses have a long history and now operate together servicing a wide area in the surrounding districts.


Aside from having a website to advertise both businesses Patsy wanted her staff to be able to post funeral notices to the website so that people attending could easily find their way to the service with a Google map.


The Horder and Thorley Funeral Services website needed to be a dynamic website that both the businesses could continuously update.


User friendly dashboard features such as the notices dropping off the page once the funeral date had expired were implemented and the website was dubbed by Amanda as 'so intuitive that they would not have any problems in navigating their way around the back-end'.

What do our customers think ...

Wanting to deal with a local business in the designing of our website we engaged the help of Susana & Cameron at Abstractal. In designing our website we needed to include information for both our businesses in a user friendly, informative and practical site so that both our clients and staff could easily navigate and update the required information to keep it relative.

Susana and Cameron listened to our needs and concerns and along with their enthusiastic approach we were able to bring together a very fitting site for our businesses. Patsy & Amanda Horder Horder & Thorley Funeral Services
