celebrate and remember a beautiful life
Kingston Funeral was established in 1996 by Bob Newbould. His sole purpose was to assist and support families to properly 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 mostly it’s important to record and remember the personalities of our great city and honour all that they achieved.
Funerals or memorial services are the perfect place for family and friends to gather and support one another whilst they grieve the loss of their loved one.
Our Chapel is located at 146 Argus Street, Cheltenham and sits 60 people comfortably, offering 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. Additionally, we work with alternative venues, Cemeteries and Crematoria to ensure that you select the right venue for your family.
We have a fleet of vehicles to cater for all family needs including a number of mourning coaches. We have recently added a new state of the art hearse to our fleet.
We are committed to updating our fleet on a regular basis to ensure that our clients travel in comfort and style.
