Bring Francis 'Frankie' Mossman Home to NZ

**UPDATE 06/09/21**

Thanks to the generosity of all our donors, Francis arrived safely in New Zealand last week. We wish to express our heartfelt thanks for making this happen. Thank you.

**UPDATE 24/08/21**

For the sake of transparency, withdrawal of funds will be made by an Australian-based family friend who will be sending the funds directly to the funeral director. This beneficiary change is due to our family being based in New Zealand (which is yet to be a GoFundMe supported country.)

Thank you again to all donors.


We are overwhelmed and grateful for the donations that have poured in over the last 24 hours. The burden of COVID and lockdowns make these gestures that much more meaningful, and for that we THANK YOU. It is a testament to the impact Francis has on his family and friends, and the generous spirit of people near and far. These donations will certainly help in bringing Francis back home and giving him the best possible farewell. The services and memorials will be made known as soon as possible. We will keep you updated on all platforms.

We will leave this page up so people can still read the thoughtful messages and continue to comment. 

Thank you all so very much.


Francis' mother's final wish is to see her son one last time before he is laid to rest. With your help and generosity, we want to make this happen for her.

The money raised here will contribute towards bringing Francis back to NZ and the funeral costs.

With heavy hearts and much sadness, we learned of Francis’ passing last Saturday 14th August in Sydney, Australia.

Francis was an energetic force and much-loved brother and son. He was a well-respected member of the acting community and found a supportive and endearing family community in Sydney. His smile and energetic presence will be sorely missed by those lucky enough to have known him.

We recognise that COVID has put additional stresses and financial pressure on many, so any manageable donations towards Francis’ funeral and repatriation costs will be greatly appreciated and help our family during this difficult time.


Many thanks, 

Laurence & Jeremy Mossman
