Rebecca (Bec) Lyons is passionate about bettering the experiences of people when dealing with end of life and death. Bec works to empower people by offering a family led home funeral service to individuals and communities, whereby they can care for their person in death as they have in life.


Bec hails from the Blue Mountains in NSW but made Tasmania her home in 2006. Over her career she has worked in various industries including finance, real estate and the law, but in 2011 she found her path into the funeral industry and stayed there until mid-2017. During that time, she worked across the many roles offered in the contemporary funeral industry, including pre planning, administration, mortuary, funeral arranging and directing. Retraining as an End of Life Doula and becoming an independent Funeral Director, she has worked in home-based death care and family led funerals ever since. Bec has also been actively working to advance the mission of You n’ Taboo which is the education and advocacy service she co-founded with her partner in 2016. Bec is the President of the Natural Death Advocacy Network and has formed the Australian Home Funeral Alliance.
