A message from the directors

As independent owners and operators, the safety of our client families, our employees and work colleagues are paramount to us. Having dealt with multiple Covid cases during this pandemic, we remain committed to the highest standards of Covid safety. We want the best of care, service and support for our client families whilst working within the current Government guidelines.

Our premises are completely sanitized if you choose to meet face to face or, if you wish we can organize a video link to attend to your needs.

Funerals are conducted in accordance with the relevant government guidelines. Please call to discuss your personal wishes on 1300 722 635

Funeral Options

Choose traditional or modern coffins / caskets, fresh flowers, urns, songs, cars, even butterflies, doves or balloons. We help you every step of the way.

Pre-Paid Funeral Plans

Pre-paid funerals allow better budgeting, less stress, and better decisions. Insurance won’t help you make funeral arrangements, we will.

Funeral Services Melbourne

A Different Approach

Here at Candlepines we have a different approach to helping you through the overwhelming funeral process. With more than 30 years’ experience in the industry we know when you need a helping hand. Candlepines have developed unique and practical services that ensure our clients can provide a memorable farewell.

When you lose a loved one, you don’t want a big corporate business dictating what you can or can’t have at the funeral. Firstly, you need genuine empathy and support, then clear arrangement details giving you what you want. Most of all you need to feel included, this is what the family at Candlepines excel at.

Our funeral services provide Melbourne clients with the chance to farewell a close friend or family member allowing them to celebrate that life and share the memories. We offer straightforward and attentive services that remove the stress and burden that come with planning a funeral from our clients’ shoulders allowing them the space and time that is necessary to grieve and reflect.

Qualified and Respected Funeral Directors in Melbourne

Because we are a family

This is why we work with families and can offer guidance and support with a qualified bereavement support worker. Over the years we have stayed in touch with our many Candlepines families to offer support.

Whether a religious or non-religious service it is still a personal tribute and acknowledgement. You can choose your own civil celebrant or have a Candlepines celebrant for non-religious services. Our own celebrants are included in our service fee. We are passionate about detail, we have an eye for it, and will ensure it happens your way. An extensive range of stationary is available including your complimentary personal Reflections Photo Album. We can also organise a professional videographer or a video display during the service

People are often surprised when we tell them we have conducted funerals at venues such as Racecourses, yacht clubs, golf clubs, bowling clubs. You can within reason nominate any venue that will accept a coffin for the service. Many of our Candlepines families honour us by referring us to families and friends.

It’s about what you want for your loved one and dealing with people who have the interest to listen.

Talk to us at Candlepines and see why we are the funeral directors that Melbourne clients trust when the time comes to farewell a loved one.

The Funeral Home Supporting Melbourne Clients in Their Time of Loss

The staff at Candlepines knows how important it is to find a funeral director that can provide tailored and understanding services to clients who are dealing with the death of someone near and dear to them.

At our funeral home Melbourne clients will experience just such a service. We are committed to guiding our clients through this difficult and emotionally taxing time, and work to ensure that every small detail of the funeral planning process is considered and accounted for. That means our clients do not have to worry about whether or not the service is going smoothly on the day and can instead focus on spending time with their family and other guests.
