Professional funeral services in Melbourne

Having provided professional funeral services for clients throughout Victoria for more than a decade, Glen Funerals are experts in arranging funerals. We specialise in helping you to create the funeral you want for your loved one, or in pre-planning the funeral of your choice. No matter what style or size of funeral you would like, we’ll do all we can to ensure it’s exactly as you wish it to be

We offer affordable prices for all our services and although costs will vary depending on what type of funeral or services you use, we’ll always give you the best price. We can provide you with an itemised proposal outlining all our services and rates so you know, from the outset, just how much things will cost and can budget accordingly. And, if you have any personal requests or changes to make, that’s no problem at all.

We also offer assistance with cremations and although cemeteries have their own charges, Glen Funerals can help you with these. In addition to our standard services, our friendly team can also look after a range of other services, such as helping with funeral and death notices and providing refreshments as necessary.

Rest assured that we can also help with clergy or celebrant fees, order of services sheets or cards and with floral arrangements, as well as cremation and death certificates. From organising singers or musicians to providing memorial books, whatever you need, we’ll deliver it.

Organising a funeral – how we can help

Registering a death

As part of our service, Glen Funerals organises the registration of a death with the Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages Victoria. The certificate is then issued directly to the next of kin within about 10 working days of registration. There are no fees for registering a death, although a fee is payable if a copy of the actual death certificate is required.

The funeral service

There are a variety of options available when it comes to deciding upon the most suitable type of funeral service and we can advise you on the service of your choice. Whether you want a single or a dual service, you can depend on Glen Funerals for everything.

A single service funeral can take place at our chapel, a church, crematorium chapel, at the graveside or a special place suited to your loved one’s personality. Alternatively, a dual service begins with a service at a church, chapel or other venue, followed by a procession to the cemetery or crematorium, where there is a final committal ceremony. No matter what style you choose – or if you prefer something else – we’ll take care of all the arrangements for you.

Religious clergy

If your loved one was a member of a church, they would most likely want you to ask a pastor, minister or priest from their church to officiate the service. If you prefer, we can contact clergy on your behalf.

If the deceased had no contact with a church, you may ask family members to help you decide or select a minister, or speak with Glen Funerals. We know a number of Melbourne’s leading celebrants and can help you select a suitable celebrant.

Repatriation

With more people traveling overseas, Glen Funerals also offers a complete repatriation service. We can take the stress out of getting a loved one home by taking care of all the necessary paperwork. We’ll speak with the necessary government departments and travel authorities to organise a speedy return.

Viewings

Family members may wish to view their loved one and we can arrange private or public viewings as required.

Civil Celebrant

Glen Funerals works with a number of funeral celebrants whom we can recommend.

Pre-paid funerals

Planning ahead for your funeral may seem macabre, but in reality, it can save your nearest and dearest a lot of stress when the time comes. Whether it’s financial worry or organisational concerns, these are completely removed by pre-paying for a funeral.

Once you’ve pre-paid for your funeral, your pre-payment is held in a secured, government-protected fund, so there’s nothing else to pay at all. By using our pre-payment service at Glen Funerals, you can rest easy knowing that all costs are taken care of. What’s more, your pre-payment is protected from inflation so, no matter when the funeral takes place, you’ll always receive what you’ve paid for. It doesn’t matter how much prices increase, you will never be asked for additional money unless you or your family wish to include extra services further down the line.
