Le Pine Funerals is an Australian funeral provider that has been serving the people and communities of Melbourne and Victoria since 1891.
When Le Pine Funerals first began caring for families, funerals were all very similar – because that was how people were expected to say their goodbyes. With more than 125 years of experience in arranging funeral services to families in Melbourne and Victoria, Le Pine Funerals is well-established in the industry and our funeral directors are active in their local communities.
Today, each funeral service can be as unique as the person it is for, and tailor made to the wishes and values of the loved ones that are left behind. At Le Pine Funerals we have made this change in attitudes at the very core of our identity. We can walk you through arranging a traditional funeral, or create a service that is completely custom designed and tailored to your specific personal wishes and requests.
Many people today are realising that the emotions of a funeral service can stand side-by-side with a celebration of life – and that is what we specialise in.
Le Pine's Founding Man
In the 1870s, Joseph Le Pine fled his homeland of France and came to Melbourne with his family.
Joseph worked as a cabinet maker – in the early days of funeral services it was common for coffins to be made by a carpenter, a cabinet maker or similar artisan. It was also common for the manufacturer of coffins to assist families in making funeral arrangements. By 1891, Joseph was established as an undertaker in the growing colonial city of Melbourne.
From this 1891 beginning, Le Pine Funerals now has 19 funeral homes across Melbourne; each one providing all the care and guidance a family needs to arrange a funeral that offers a unique celebration of the life of someone special to them.
Le Pine's funeral directors know that each funeral service is unique and that a funeral that has been personalised to the memories of the deceased as well as to the needs of the family is a funeral that will be remembered for years to come.
Our funeral directors will work beside you to include special themes in the ceremony that reflect the life and values of the person you are honouring, whether it is a traditional, religious service or a contemporary service reflective of your loved one and their tastes.
At Le Pine Funerals, our experience and understanding of the funeral needs of all of Melbourne's cultural groups, as well as of modern funeral practices and our involvement in the local communities we service means we are able to assist clients from a wide range of backgrounds with their funeral arrangements.
We will offer you the time you need to have all your questions answered and for you to think about all of your choices so that we can make the funeral you are arranging one that everyone will remember. You can come see your local funeral director, or give us a call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on:
