Greek Orthodox Funerals Melbourne

Crane Funerals are proud to offer Greek Orthodox Funerals.

“With the saints give rest, O Christ, to the soul of Your servant where sickness and sorrow are no more, nor sighing, nor suffering, but life everlasting.”

Melbourne has a proud and large Greek Orthodox Community. And we are glad to assist in your time of need. Let us help you liaise with the Church of your choosing and organise with them all aspects of the funeral and burial process.

Death Rituals Of the Greek Church

We help you achieve the rituals, customs, and rules of conduct in laying your loved one to rest. Receive prompt service, great value and care, and top-quality Australian made caskets and coffins. We support you in your time of need.

Your loved one’s funeral will be arranged by our experienced Directors. From initial contact when we arrange to bring your loved one into our care, right up until their burial. We offer advice or support during, and after the Service as well.

Laying Your Loved One To Rest Peacefully

We prepare your loved one to look their best for their final journey here on Earth.

Mourners will appreciate seeing your loved one at peace in their casket. We have found over the years this helps somewhat in the grieving process also.

Greek Orthodox Funerals aim to help all attendees develop a better understanding of the meaning and purpose of life. It helps us deal with the grief of our loved ones passing, and as time carries on after their death.

Death affirms our hope in our salvation and eternal life. The funeral should encourage expression of our grief, which is a natural process. It is always our aim to help people move through their bereavement.

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.

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.
