My family and I were blown away by the service we received from Kelly, Mark and their entire team for my mum’s funeral. And to call it a service is a crime- it was care, compassion, love, support, comfort and peace. From the moment we met they treated my mum as if they knew and loved her as we did.I was absolutely heartbroken and completely overwhelmed by what needed to be done when I met them but they instantly gave me peace from our very first meeting and were with me every step of the way. They read, not only my mind, but also my heart at every stage and I felt like they knew what I wanted, and what mum would have loved, before I could even put it into words. They really went above and beyond; nothing was out of the question. If it was what mum would have wanted, it was done!To Mark & Kelly:There are not enough Stars, words or even bars of gold in the world to ever thank and repay you for getting my family and I through the hardest day of our lives and making it absolutely perfect in the process. Your compassion, love, care, expertise, gentleness, patience and just overall light will forever be in my heart. We are eternally grateful for you and your wonderful team. I am certain mum had a hand in leading me to you and is smiling down on us in peace.❤️❤️❤️

Kel and Mark thank you both so much for creating such a beautiful service for my mum.Losing mum has been one of the hardest moments I have had to deal with but you made me feel calm and took the time to listen and create what we asked for in such a beautiful way.Words cannot describe how grateful I am that we chose Redwood Funerals as you truly go above and beyond with all that you do and all the special touches.Loosing a loved one is such a difficult moment in life and as much as I wish we didn’t have to experience it unfortunately we do and did. During times like this working with people with compassion, empathy, care and respect has helped us feel a small bit of peace and comfort.Kel you truly created everything we asked for and treated my mum with so much care. I cannot thank you enough. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️

Top notch service from a family business, you guys went above and beyond the call and made my mother’s funeral exactly what she wantedThank you Redwood Funerals, you should be so proud of your efforts, our family and friends are forever grateful for honouring a beautiful lady.From the first phone call to the payment of invoice, kindness, compassion and understanding at every point.Help with the selection of the celebrant, perfect for her wishes, she would have loved how he portrayed her.And the service, your presence was secondary, my Mum primary, you gave our family amazing customer service without being seen. Everything ran so well, effortless at a time when energy levels are low. It meant a lot to us.You know you’ve done a great job when people comment “that was the best funeral I’ve ever been to”. Our family was overwhelmed with comments about the service, a credit to you.Thank you for your patience, understanding, compassion and exemplary customer service.

We used Redwood funerals to say goodbye to my Father. We wanted something a little different. Kelly and her family went above and beyond to make sure that we got exactly what we wanted. They are lovely and caring people. I highly recommend them and I will be telling all my friends and family to use them in the future

Finding a balance between sympathy for the situation and a happy disposition when the time is right is how Kelly operates. She is a naturally bubbly person but has empathy in spades. It was a pleasure to work with Kelly on my Mum’s funeral. She did everything with compassion and respect. My Mum, aged 97, had a great innings but I will always miss her. Kelly helped me to source commemorative cremation Urns for me and the relatives who wanted to share Mum’s ashes. The Urn sits right next to my favourite photo of Mum with me. It’s often the case that a smaller, non-corporatized organization will make sure everything goes to plan and to achieve the best possible outcome on the day of the funeral. That’s Redwood!

I am very grateful to Kelly and the team at Redwood Funerals for taking really good care of my aunt after her passing. Kelly was compassionate, caring and patient in helping us find suitable clothing for my aunt before she was cremated. It's been a rough year and the COVID-19 restrictions were a challenge, but Kelly and the team helped us through this and talked us through all different options. We are grateful for their support and help with the funeral, cremation and for arranging the live streaming for our family. We felt looked after.

A year has passed and to this day we are still pleased with everything you did for us and knowing that he got the great send off that he deserved. Love from Joe and Leah xxx

My Family and I cannot thank the staff at Redwood Funerals enough for looking after our loved one and us. After the sudden loss of my Uncle we were able to celebrate his life in a way that showed who he was, a very personalized service in which anything was possible including his motorcycle & favourite saying on his coffin and one last ride. I can't compare Redwood Funerals to any other when going through one of life's most difficult times.

Do you have questions? We answer them

There are many methods one can use to gain a list of the Best Funeral Directors in Melbourne. one of the easiest methods is to perform a search with the keyword “funeral directors in Melbourne”. The other method is to find a funeral listing website and perform your search on such a website.  Redwood Funerals is a family-owned and operated funeral director that is full of compassion and understanding for those who have lost their loved one. We ensure the families get the care they deserve. The way we do this is by listening to your requirements and providing the best service.

Arranging a funeral service in Melbourne involves first finding a funeral director that you feel comfortable can guide and help you with making all the necessary arrangements. It might seem that all are alike however, the key to finding the right one is to first make a list of requirements and ensure the funeral service you select offers those services. Some of the essential services include selecting the right venue like in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, organising flowers for a floral tribute, and providing coffins and caskets for those who want to add a personal touch to the funeral. Select a funeral service based on your requirements; for example, one might be searching for a budget cremation in Melbourne or a Burial fawner cemetery.

It is possible that the deceased may already have opted for prepaid funerals in Melbourne. However, for those arranging a funeral for their loved ones, it is necessary for them to settle the bill of the funeral at funeral parlours in Melbourne themselves. A deposit might not be necessary in most cases however, funeral directors may offer a flexible payment option.

Redwood Funerals being the top of there game amongst funeral directors in Melbourne is able to offer many beautiful, amazing venues to hold the celebration of your loved ones life. We are able to use these venues for both burial & Cremation and most will also be able to offer families refreshments after the service for quests to reflect tell story’s and catch up with others.
