Frequently Asked Questions

The best funeral director is the one that best caters to your needs. Funerals are a stressful time for any family and making sure your needs are met should be the first priority of any funeral director.

The team at Kingston Funerals is available 24/7 to discuss your needs. We’re committed to helping people, going to great lengths to make sure you can remember your loved ones in a way that’s right for you. We have several funeral directors on our team.

The cost of a funeral can differ greatly depending on the type and what’s included in the funeral service.
If this is your first experience with funeral directors, the whole situation can be a bit daunting. We have a range of terms we use to talk about different parts of the service or planning process. Each will be something you have to think about at some stage, whether you plan it yourself or ask our team to take care of it. Some of the more common terms we use include

Funeral Home:

A building where funerals are planned and held. Although it’s not completely standard, the term funeral home is sometimes used interchangeably with a funeral parlour or mortuary.

Funeral Venues:

Slightly different from funeral homes, funeral venues refers to the location where the funeral service or memorial will take place. They can range from a large, ornate building with a capacity of hundreds to a local park, or even just somewhere special to you and your loved one.

Funeral Director:

A funeral director is the person in charge of the funeral service. They manage and oversee all funerals that occur there as well as any other responsibilities such as cremations, burials, and anything else involved with the service itself.

Funeral Celebrant:

A funeral celebrant is a professional who organises funeral ceremonies, manages them and provides support throughout the process. We have several celebrants on our team, allowing you to choose the one that resonates most with your situation.

Funeral Parlour:

Another name for a funeral home. The name comes from a time when funerals were held in the parlour of the family home, before the mid-19th century.
It can be difficult to know where to start when a death occurs in the family, however, at Kingston Funerals, we are here to help. From transferring your loved one into our care to organising the funeral, we have all the information you need right here on our website, or feel free to call us and we will step through the process with you.
As far as providing funeral services goes, there is no difference between funeral homes and funeral parlours. Funeral parlours and funeral homes are places where the deceased can be prepared for the funeral, and you can find the services you need to plan and carry out a funeral. They offer a range of burial, funeral, and cremation services. If you’re looking for funeral parlours Melbourne, Kingston Funerals can provide you with all the services you need and more.
