Our History

TSBurstow

TS Burstow Funerals was founded in 1900 by TS Burstow, a former Mayor of Toowoomba, and has remained in his family's hands ever since. Now run jointly by Trevor and Donald Burstow, our founder's great-grandsons, the company continues to meet the needs of the community with the same commitment to understanding and sensitivity on which the company was founded.

Thomas Stephen Burstow   1858 - 1928
Our founder and former Mayor of Toowoomba who established the company in 1900. Following his death, the business was carried on by his son, A.E. (Alf) Burstow.

Alfred Ernest Burstow   1896 - 1960
Alf Burstow was well known and respected for his active involvement with his Church and his music. He was a foundation member of the Toowoomba Musical Union, now known as the Toowoomba Choral Society Inc. He was a member of and tireless worker for the Toowoomba Sub-Branch of the R.S.L. Many people of the Downs will remember him as compere of the 4GR Diggers Session over a number of years.

John Alfred Thomas Burstow   1924 - 1988
John was the third generation to take over the management of the family company. He rose to this position in 1960 following the death of his father. During his 42 years service to the Funeral Industry, he was recognised as a leader in the field. John Burstow was a sensitive man of very high ethics and his approach and caring attitude will long be remembered by many families on the Downs. Since his death in 1988, the business has been co-managed by his sons, Trevor and Donald.

Trevor and Donald Burstow
This is the fourth generation of the Burstow Family to serve the community as Funeral Directors. Both Trevor and Donald are determined in their resolve to maintain the high standards of service and professionalism created by their predecessors.
