Religious & Multicultural Funerals

Funerals To Suit Your Family’s Needs

Let us help you meet your Religious and Cultural funeral requirements.

Our multi-cultural funerals in Melbourne are tailored to suit your family’s specific needs.

We liaise with Religious Temples, Churches, and Community Groups. Let us help your family and friends celebrate the life of your loved one no matter what their background.

Religious and Cultural customs are followed as closely as the family wishes. Some people are very traditional – others prefer only a touch of tradition in a more modern Celebration.

Our Director has served the multicultural community of Regional Victoria and Melbourne for many years. Our hands-on approach provides reassurance to families of varied faiths and Cultures.

Families Are Unique And Diverse

We acknowledge people of a certain Culture may not observe the exact traditions as others from the same Culture. We help you incorporate your own unique style into the funeral. Customising the service this way showcases your loved one’s culture or Religion, and also their unique place within it.

Damian Meehan – our Director – has variety within his own family too. Damian is a second-generation Catholic Funeral Director. He had an uncle who was a Catholic Priest before passing away in 2010. He also has a cousin who is a practising Buddhist Monk at a Thai Monastery in Melbourne. Damian is also married to a lovely Chinese girl (Kelly Yang), who also works in Crane Funerals. Families really are unique and diverse in their own way.

Your Choice

You are in control of the role your particular traditions play in the Service. Let us help you with respect, and an accepting attitude. We provide reassurance to your family through personal service and genuine care. We welcome you sharing your customs with us, so we can make your unique funeral ideas reality.

Crane Funerals always seeks specific Cultural / Religious guidance from the family, to ensure the exact service they want.

However, following is a brief rundown of Religious & Multicultural beliefs surrounding death and funerals. This does not fully detail all the intricacies. Individuals and families may wish to be treated differently than what their tradition normally advises.

When considering a dying person’s needs before and after death, the final say should come from the person themselves, as well as their family.

As one of Melbourne’s leading bespoke Funeral Directors, the funeral you arrange with us is your choice. No strict, long list of “Package” funeral options to wade through and be restricted by.
