We specialise in helping both individuals and families to make pre-arranged funeral plans, and we assist the recently bereaved through the services of qualified support workers, and experienced funeral directors. Essendon families can talk to husband and wife team Phillip and Bronwyn, and trust in us to take care of the little details, and to help you in planning a service that commemorates the life of a loved one.
Funerals are such important occasions. Please read about the experiences we have helped other families create to honour their loved ones.

On behalf of my family ,I want to thank-you both for the kind and sensitive way you helped us through this very sad time. The funeral was just as Dad would have wished. I also know that he would have loved the beautiful blue flowers that you creatively arranged for him. A lovely touch !Phil & Bronwyn many thanks Eileen Hesse.
We want to be the trusted funeral home Essendon families can rely on to find the flexibility that they need to plan a unique and special service. While we offer funeral plans and packages to help guide you through a difficult process, we want you to know that you are supported to tailor a service that provides a fitting send off as you lay your loved one to rest.
Families can consult with us when their loved ones have made prepaid funeral plans. We are also here to listen if you wish to plan a unique funeral or memorial service based on your most treasured memories of a friend or family member.
Our chapel will hold up to thirty people for a small and special church service. We can also arrange for larger gatherings for a religious or non-religious memorial service or funeral. Our own celebrant’s service fee will be included, and you also have the choice to arrange for your chosen civil celebrant to perform the service.
Customising photo collage boards, presentations, readings, and music will be an important part of planning a unique service, and you are able to do this at our funeral home. Essendon families can consult the Candlepines team to make thoughtful arrangements for a memorable service.
Floral arrangements provide a thoughtful touch that can reflect the life and personality of a loved one. Ask the Candlepines funeral directors about a seasonal arrangement, or one that reflects favourite colours or flowers.
To talk to our caring funeral directors, Essendon families can call or email Phillip and Bronwyn. We are available to provide information and guidance.
