Finding a funeral director you can trust in Melbourne can be emotionally and financially difficult, so let us help you. With such a competitive market, the cost of a funeral in Melbourne, Victoria will vary greatly depending on the funeral home you choose, where the funeral service is held, and the type of funeral choices you make.
Depending on what you need, some Melbourne Funeral Directors will specialise in certain religious ceremonies while others offer many different types of funeral service. Most funeral directors will generally offer a fixed package and have different pricing structures, so it is important that if you don’t pay for things you don’t want or need and stay on a budget.
Choosing the Right Funeral Director in Melbourne
Price and customer reviews are helpful, but before you make a final decision and meet with your chosen funeral home there are a few more important points to consider.
We recommend that you ask yourself the following key questions before making your choice:
- Who owns the funeral home you are considering?
- Are they family owned and independent OR are they owned by a publicly listed company?
- Does the funeral director work for you and your family or shareholders of publicly listed companies?
- Have you met or heard about the funeral director in your community?
- Do you know their personal and professional reputation?
- How long have they been serving their community?
- What has been the experience of relatives, friends and neighbours?
- Does the funeral director provide a full service facility and are they able to handle all of your needs (chapel, viewing room, reception and catering facilities, parking, etc.)?
- Is the funeral home a trusted and approved member of eziFunerals?
