Wray Owen is now part of the H.Parsons family

You can expect the same unwavering dedication to supporting local families and communities.

What has changed is that we are now part of one of the South Coast’s oldest family-owned businesses, with over 130 years of experience.

With this will come improved facilities, resources, and equipment, enabling us to provide a higher quality service to Shoalhaven families when they need it most.

H.Parsons has assisted many Shoalhaven families over the years, so we're delighted to be able to provide a convenient, local destination that cares for members of the community with dignity, compassion and integrity.
