Warm, professional and understanding

We’ve entered a World which often transcends the ‘traditional’ approach.

When it comes to funerals, you have enough to worry about without having a Funeral Director saying no to your ideas because “that’s not the way it’s done”.

What if you too could easily receive:

  • Respect
  • Genuine care
  • Premium personal service
  • Funeral arrangements on your terms
  • An old-fashioned helping hand with a smile

We don’t know about you, but we seek these traits in people who provide us a service.

Crane Funerals care about things other than the bottom line. We meet a need in Melbourne Funeral Services, as a competitively priced alternative to the big names. We comfort people. And we help people face profound loss. Let us help you give your loved one the best farewell.

Let Us Help You Do
The Right Thing

Let us help you arrange a Service that will help your loved one live on in your hearts and minds.

You are probably already aware, we occupy a special position; small and attentive, flexible and accommodating. Our difference is we listen to you, we don’t dictate proceedings. You too will receive this premium personal service, and we tailor funerals to suit you.

You Too Can Cherish Fond Memories

Our clients appreciate
our warmth & care

We had prepaid for my father’s funeral. The costs were very reasonable, One phone call to Damian and the wheels were set in motion, He was very understanding and patient with us as we tried to put together content for the Service which was to be live-streamed due to Covid restrictions. He was available to chat at any time of the day and the Service went well despite the obstacles. Crane Funerals has looked after both of our parents funerals and I have no hesitation recommending them to anybody.


Recently we had a sudden loss in our family with a vehicle accident. It was one of the most difficult times we have ever faced. We were advised that there was TAC funeral coverage that we could apply for, but we weren’t sure of how to do everything, especially given our grief clouding our minds. We contacted a few funeral directors and Damian and Crane Funerals was our choice. Everything from the start was made as easy as possible, and they handled the whole TAC funeral application for us. My brothers funeral was exactly as we wished, and nothing was too much trouble for Crane Funerals – they made it simple and it was just so beautiful on the day.


Damian was excellent.We would highly recommend Damian and Crane Funerals. Damian was very supportive and caring, which helped us manage this very difficult time. He was understanding and went out of his way to help us with all our requests. Damian was compassionate and kind. We really appreciated everything he did. There was follow-up after the funeral and this was a nice touch.


Great caring service. Crane Funerals delivered a lovely service recently for our son who was taken from us suddenly in an accident. Damian arranged everything regarding the TAC funeral paperwork etc, and the service was excellent before, at, and after the funeral. Highly recommended for service and care – Crane Funerals handle everything with simplicity, straightforward advice and terrific customer service.
