He contributes to the local community and funeral sector as a member of Rotary and various industry groups and Associations. These include the Australian Funeral Directors Association (AFDA) where he has served as Victorian State President and National President. He has also been awarded with the Master Funeral Director Award, Life Councillor and the esteemed Life Membership.

John likes to make a difference. It’s what has driven him to expand the family business and to serve as the Australian Representative on the World Board of FIAT-IFTA.

John and his two children, Kelly and Daniel currently manage the Scott family business, carrying on the family tradition.


As our very own female celebrant, Kelly's caring nature resonates with families in her role as a personal funeral arranger and conductor. One of her special roles is caring for families who have lost a baby.

She is a passionate advocate and supporter of the local community and provides education through community conversations about grief and pre-planning. 
Kelly regularly presents local Education and Information Sessions to health professionals and the general public.

In her 25 years in the funeral industry, Kelly has always explored ways to create different experiences for the families TJ Scott & Son represent.
