Le Pine Funerals has over 125 years of experience in tailoring funeral services to the needs and values of families in Victoria, with the first Le Pine funeral home having served the local community since 1891.
The Dandenong funeral home was rebuilt and reopened in March 2018, co-branded with White Lady Funerals.
Le Pine Funerals Dandenong is located 30km south east from Melbourne CBD in the foothill of the Dandenong Ranges near Dandenong Creek. We provide funeral services to families in Dandenong, Eumemmerring, Keysborough, Noble Park, Doveton, Dandenong North, Dandenong South, Endeavour Hills and beyond.
With a great number of migrants settling in Dandenong and surrounds, the local area is culturally diverse. Our caring funeral directors support families from many parts of the world and from all religious backgrounds and, no matter your faith or religion, we can help arrange a funeral that honours and celebrates your loved one’s life.
We will work closely with you, attending to all the details so you don’t need to worry during this difficult time.
Le Pine Funerals can help arrange any type of funeral. For example, you may want to hold the funeral service for your loved one at:
Following the ceremony, you may choose to bury or memorialise your loved one at Dandenong Community Cemetery, which is just 5km from our funeral home. The cemetery recognises the needs of Dandenong’s diverse communities, offering a range of in-ground burial options in specific cultural and religious locations; as well as memorial options.
As you arrive at the front of the location, you can enter via the central entrance leading into the foyer and chapel, or the right-hand entrance leading directly into the shared Le Pine and White Lady Funerals reception area.
As you enter you are greeted by a beautiful open foyer leading into the chapel. On the left-hand side of the foyer, there is a toilet with disability access.
To your right is a door leading to the shared reception area where you are greeted by both Le Pine and White Lady Funerals staff. The reception area has its own entry from the front of the building as well, to the right of the glass doors leading into the foyer and chapel. The Le Pine Funerals arrangement room is located in this section of the building.
To your left is a short hallway leading to the Memorial Lounge and the White Lady Funerals arrangement rooms.
The funeral home includes three arrangement rooms, one of them doubling as a spacious viewing room separate to the chapel. Each of the arrangement rooms offers comfortable seating where you can have tea or coffee while speaking to your funeral director.
The chapel boasts beautiful rake ceilings, is fully air-conditioned and includes state of the art audiovisuals with four screens in the chapel. The chapel seats 170 guests, and the Dandenong location can cater to larger services of up to 250 guests with standing room in the overflow areas in the foyer and the Memorial Lounge, both of which are connected to the chapel via audiovisuals with two screens in the foyer and another two screens in the Lounge.
Twilight services are available at this location.
The Memorial Lounge is a light-filled, spacious catering area which includes an outdoor section and a commercial kitchen for your catering needs.
With its own entrance available separate to the funeral home, the Memorial Lounge is ideal not only for after funeral gatherings but any kind of celebration such as birthdays and anniversaries.
The Memorial Lounge can cater for up to 200 guests with glassware and crockery available at the Lounge.
There is parking available for at least 40 cars in the funeral home car park and two designated disability parking spots, entry via the service road. On street parking is also available in the area. We are conveniently located a short distance from Eastlink and public transport.
The team at Le Pine Funerals Dandenong 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?
The variety. Each day is different and this is one of the things I love about my job. Being a funeral director requires a lot of skill and a dedicated work ethic. There’s an emphasis not only on respecting the deceased but also having customer service skills, event management and business management skills. Above all, it’s about creating a positive impact on people’s lives, which I love.
How long have you been a location manager?
I have been the locations manager for the last 5 years.
What do you enjoying doing in your spare time?
Running, 4WDing and hanging out with friends and family.
Are there community groups you work with or support?
Advance Care Planning: I help educate individuals, their loved ones, carers and healthcare professionals the importance of making an “Advance Care Plan” for the future. This reduces anxiety and improves outcomes for all involved.
R U OK? : I present and do campaigns to inspire and empower everyone to have meaningful conversations and to connect with people who could be struggling with life.
Blue Ribbon: I help raise funds for The Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation, which perpetuates the memory of the 159 Victoria Police employees who have died in the line of duty through the support of worthwhile community projects in Victoria.
Le Pine Funerals supports a range of community programs designed to help the young and old alike, as well as hosting memorial services and informational seminars.
Some of the organisations we work closely with are: 20th Man Fund, Lions, Rotary Club, Masonic Lodge and Community Sporting Clubs.
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.
