Feedback for our services:
"Andrew, thank you so much for arranging such a moving funeral for Netta. Your attention to detail, caring manner, and your ability to anticipate our every need was much appreciated. Up to this point there have been in excess of 100 viewings of the “live stream” and we have received exceptional reports.
You made the whole family comfortable and they felt that we had given Netta the sort of send off she deserved.
Thanks again for a job exceptionally well done. Kind Regards ..."

A Covid-19 Lockdown funeral – Photo and story posted here at family's request.
On 2nd July we had the honour of conducting a funeral for Mr Len W. of McCrae.
Len's devoted wife Rosemary was so impressed with the elegant coffin, floral tribute and venue that she asked us to put this photo on our website as a tribute to Len.
Rosemary was determined to make the farewell a positive experience for her two young grandsons. And she certainly did.
The service – held at the newly renovated Safety Beach Sailing Club – was quite uplifting, despite the sad occasion. Memorabilia from Len's 94 years adorned the front table, providing a sense of normality for the family and paying homage to a man who'd had a very rich and full life. In pre or post covid conditions, it would have been a much larger gathering for sure.
The spectacular coastal and bay views also helped the boys to get through what could have been a daunting experience and we appreciate SBSC for allowing us to again use their stunning venue.
And thank you Rosemary – for trusting us to care for your beloved husband.

"MPF recently organised my fathers funeral memorial at Blairgowrie yacht club and burial at Sorrento cemetery. It was faultless from beginning to end.
We started with a much larger funeral home before changing to MPF and the difference was extraordinary – personal, caring, empathetic and every detail taken care of – I cannot speak highly enough of them – they know the Peninsula and how special it is and understand exactly what you are looking for if you are seeking for a funeral there – and they are really lovely people – I would not have any hesitation in recommending them."

Thank you Debra, for your kind words. It was our privilege to care for John and to assist your family at that time.
"The time of a loved one's death can be very challenging on many levels.
Andrew and Julie were thoughtful and insightful to our needs and the type of celebration that we wanted for John's well loved elderly father.
Nothing was too much trouble and Andrew made it all so easy for us.
We highly recommend their service."

Thank you Georgina, John and family for trusting us to care for Alan and to assist you with his beautiful and very memorable service. We are most grateful for your kind review.
"I would just like to thank and acknowledge MPF for the care and compassion shown to my family with the passing of my uncle.
What is a very sad day for family and friends was turned into a beautiful tribute to my uncle at the Blairgowrie Yacht Club by all involved at MPF.
They certainly make the whole experience a personal and comforting one bringing reassurance to the family during such a difficult time that their loved one is in good hands.
Thank you MPF."

Thank you for taking the time to send us our feedback Jane. Your kind review is greatly appreciated.
"Andrew and Julie are knowledgeable, respectful, trustworthy and caring in every way and our mother's funeral was a most beautiful tribute to her.
We changed our minds over a couple of things, and Andrew was always friendly and nothing was too much trouble for him. At a time when everything is so overwhelming and emotional, I fully trusted Andrew and this friendly family firm.
I did not know them previously to this and I wholeheartedly recommend Andrew & Julie as they will look after your loved one and you in the most respectful and caring way.
My sincere thanks."
Lyn Newton, Melbourne, April 2020
Many thanks for your generous feedback Lyn. Thank you for trusting us to help honour your beautiful Mum.
"Mornington Peninsula Funerals arranged my father-in-laws recent Funeral. John was very much a family man and the funeral really reflected that. It was intimate, welcoming and perfectly organised. MPF were there to help us through with anything on the day and at the same time stood back and enabled the family to celebrate Johns life. A perfect balance that enabled a seamless day. For that MPF are to be highly recommended."
Marshall, thank you so much for your kind words in support of our services. It was a privilege to be able to support your family during a difficult time. We wish you all the best and we are pleased that you have such precious memories of John.
