History

Kingston Funeral was established in 1996 by Bob Newbould (yes that’s Bob in the image tooling away building our Chapel back in 1996) with the sole purpose of assisting and supporting families to celebrate and remember a beautiful life.

Over the years families throughout Melbourne have appreciated the unique level of care offered by Kingston Funerals and so we continue to offer personalised funerals at fair and competitive prices.

The Importance
of Funerals

Funerals are important for a number of reasons but most of all it is important to record and remember the personalities of our great city and honour all that they
have achieved.

It’s also incredibly important for family and friends to gather and support one another whilst they grieve the loss of their loved one and a funeral or memorial service is the perfect place to do that.

Our Venue

Our Chapel is located at 146 Argus Street, Cheltenham. Our Chapel sits 60 comfortably and has a reflective garden with state-of-the-art audio visual equipment. Our Chapel also provides the perfect place to gather and view your loved one prior to the service or the day/night before the funeral.

We also have two arrangement rooms which are equipped for your comfort whilst you meet with our staff to arrange the funeral of your loved one. We also meet with families in the comfort of their own home.

We also work with alternative venues, Cemeteries and Crematoria to ensure that you select the right venue for your family. Many families now choose to hold memorial services in locations throughout Melbourne.

Our Vehicles

We have a fleet of vehicles to cater for all family needs including a number of mourning coaches. We have recently added a new hearse to our fleet which is state of the art. We are committed to updating our fleet on a regular basis to ensure that our clients travel in comfort and style.
