Le Pine Funerals has been providing funeral services to families in Victoria from our funeral homes in Melbourne for over 125 years, since we first started in 1891.
We are privileged to be able to help families celebrate and honour the lives and values of loved ones every day.
Values – we all hold them dear. Some drive us, some inspire us and they can say a lot about us.
Le Pine Funerals is centrally located in Croydon with neighbours including the Dandenong Rangers, Yarra Valley Wineries, Eastland Shopping Centre Croydon Train/Bus Station, Dorset Recreational Park, Croydon Golf Club, Eastfield Park Park and Croydon Skate Park.
Our experienced funeral directors are available at the Croydon funeral home, and serving Croydon, Warranwood, Mooroolbark, Kilsyth and surrounding suburbs.
Our Croydon team can help bring your family together to arrange a funeral service that truly celebrates and honours the life and values of your loved one.
The team at Le Pine Funerals Croydon are with you every step of the way, keeping you informed and guiding you through the arrangements as much or as little as you need.
What do you enjoy about your job?
It's a privileged position to be in as I enjoy being a part of the Croydon community having lived here for 19 years.
Helping families through a very difficult time needs a great team to assist and that is what I work with here at Le Pine Funerals Croydon. Our team is completely dedicated to their work.
How long have you been location manager?
I have been with InvoCare for over 10 years and a location manager for the past 4 years.
What do you enjoy in your spare time?
My sons have kept me busy on weekends with local footy clubs, surfing and theatre productions. I try to escape the fast pace of life by going to the beach for walks or getting on my stand-up paddleboard.
Are there any special community groups you work with or support?
My commitments in the community have been with Croydon Rotary Club and Croydon Chamber of Commerce. This has given me a great insight into the needs and direction of where Croydon is heading in the future. I also assist with fundraising for groups who require help.
Croydon R.S.L. and local bowls clubs have also given me access to great connections and amazing people who live in the Croydon community.

Preplanning your funeral makes sense. A prepaid funeral takes the emotional stress off your family, locks in your funeral cost at today’s price, and allows you to plan things your way.
When you're organising a funeral service, one of the first decisions will be whether you are organising a burial or a cremation. This choice will directly impact the type of funeral service you will have.
In the Book of Ideas, funeral directors have shared some of their stories of how families have honoured their loved ones, so that you can draw inspiration for your own funeral arrangements.
