Today people are feeling free to plan for themselves or to join in planning for others, much more individual funerals than we used to see. The “standard” funeral has virtually disappeared and along with it, the “standard” price.
When you plan your funeral, our Funeral Director will provide you with a detailed plan of your funeral costs. You will know exactly how much you need to invest in the prepayment trust scheme to ensure that your wishes about your funeral are carried out.
You can be assured that our pricing is competitive. Your plan and funeral costs will be fully documented so you can check it yourself or have it checked by others.
Just call us to arrange to talk with one of our Funeral Directors about you planning your special funeral and paying for it beforehand.
We have set out in this web site three proposal costs with various alternatives from elaborate to simple.
For a Cremation Service and a Burial Service at each of Melbourne's main Cemeteries and Crematoriums. Naturally, you can choose to bring together different elements, and add in elements not mentioned, to come up with exactly the funeral arrangements you want.
Our aim is to provide you with the services that meet your needs at all levels so that the funeral you are arranging is a special and appropriate event for everyone.

* Please note: As of 1st July 2010, if the family purchases the Grave direct from the Cemetery, there is no G.S.T. payable for that service. G.S.T. is not included in all Cemetery Grave Fees. The above prices have allowed for these services being purchased direct, so no G.S.T. is included for the Grave Fee.
Would you like to talk about planning and prepaying for your funeral? We would be only too happy to help — just phone us at Russell Brothers, 9585 1610, to arrange a meeting at your home or our office, at your convenience, with one of our Funeral Directors.
Phoning us to have a meeting puts you under absolutely no obligation. It is your time to find out about your choices for planning and prepaying your own funeral and whether a funeral plan and prepayment make sense for you.
If we think they are not the best option for you, we will say so. On the other hand, if you wish to make a plan and prepayment investment, we will be ready to assist to put together a detailed plan and costing.
