If your loved one has passed away due to COVID-19 there are additional safety requirements which will need to be followed. Please be aware that funeral arrangements and services for COVID-19 positive loved ones may be delayed due to quarantine restrictions of family members if they have been in close contact. We are also unable to offer viewings for any person who has passed away from COVID-19. For further information please contact our office on 03 9800 3000.

Please be aware that further restrictions could be imposed by the government at any time and this may impact our ability to offer funeral services.
