Melrose Funeral Services

Three Decades of Experience

We offer a fully comprehensive service to ensure that the potential burden of this most challenging of periods is taken up by those best equipped to organize it.

With over three decades of experience, we have earned a reputation for a complete and efficient service, seeing to every aspect of the arrangements with the appropriate sense of occasion, affording the event every due dignity.


Efficiency and Sensitivity

Right from the most obvious considerations such as an appropriately worded obituary to the more detailed organization of flowers, memorials, catering and the order of service, we approach every aspect with efficiency and sensitivity.

Aside from the aforementioned, we can provide Private Chapels of Rest as well as a fleet of Mercedes ceremonial vehicles in Grey or Black.

Writing a review for a Funeral Services company is thankfully not an everyday occurrence. However, as a family we cannot praise the staff at Melrose, especially Jake, highly enough for their professionalism, understanding, sympathy, respectfulness, support and patience.

During a time of great family grief their assistance and guidance was offered graciously, which helped make a difficult time less stressful. As a family managed business they provide an excellent service with dignity and great attention to detail, with the all the funeral arrangements being well managed and organised.
