It is a very difficult and sad time when a Member is extremely unwell and or has passed away. In a bid to assist our Members and their families and friends, the Club has appointed an Almoner who may assist. If you need some assistance please contact the office 9599 0999.

SYC provides a range of services including;

  • Personal Visitation – we can arrange for local visitation
  • Communication – If you would like, we communicate with the Membership to notify Club friends and fellow Members
  • In the event that a Member has passed, we lower the Australian Flag to half-mast and issue an internal death notification
  • The Club can also assist with the spreading of Ashes on Port Phillip by providing access to a club boat and driver
  • You are also welcome to conduct your onsite funeral service at SYC. Your funeral director can get in touch with our events team on 9599 0999. 
  • SYC also offer Celebration of Life services (wake) at the Club in the Port Phillip Room or Olympic Room. If you would like to discuss further please contact the events team on 9599 0999.
