• Welcome to Agape Funeral

WHY US

At Agape Funerals we look after your loved ones as if they were our own. It is our honour.

Our clients/families tell us that Agape Funerals has made the whole funeral process easy and seamless, and that Theodore and staff are extremely supportive and understanding. Also, that in comparison to other quotes they have received, Agape Funerals is significantly more affordable.

As one of Melbourne’s most independent personalised Funeral Services, our services are exceptional and tailor made to your instructions, and budget.Each family and funeral is special to us– you will not be treated as just another funeral to be finished so the next one can be done. At Agape Funerals we recognise the need for families to be given the time they need, and be assisted with courtesy and respect.

Unlike others, we don’t dictate to you limited options and expensive ways, but rather we stop and listen to what your situation is and present you with all the possibilities.
We conduct one funeral at a time, and the funeral director that comes to you for the arrangement of the funeral becomes your “Go To” person for all your communications and queries. This is the same person that will be responsible for conducting the funeral whether big or small till the completion of the funeral and with ongoing support as required.

As a team with backgrounds in person to person care, we have experience in helping individuals, and families though difficult, confusing, and stressful times.

We specialise in the Mediterranean cultures with 65% Greek/Cypriot Families, 20% Italian, Croatian, Maltese, Serbian families, and 15% other Australian denominations or non- religious backgrounds.

About Greek/Cypriot Funerals

For many decades, thousands of Greek people have made Australia and especially Melbourne their home. Many hard-working Greek individuals and families have contributed greatly to the overall prosperity, cultural diversity, and growth of this unique country, and especially in the state of Victoria.
With Melbourne being regarded as the third largest Greek population city in the world, there is now a fourth and fifth generation of Greek families that respect and continue the rich Greek traditions handed down from their parents. At Agape Funerals, with respect and love, we stand by our families’ side and make sure that the funeral of their Loved one is handled in a professional, and personalised way befitting of the traditions and wishes of the family.
Agape Funerals is family owned and specialises in Greek Orthodox funerals across Melbourne and Geelong. The meeting to discuss funeral arrangements takes place in your home or in Springvale, Thomastown, Footscray, Deer Park or Werribee.

Theodore and Agape funerals were very accommodating and professional for our dads passing. They were highly recommended to us and as we went through the process you can see why. Everything from planning, church service, price, quality in selection of caskets, flowers, cards, appearance of my father, newspaper ads, you name it…they had it down all pat. Thank you to Agape

We would like to thank Theodore for the amazing service he provided for my mother over the new year period. He organised everything without fuss and made everyone, especially my father, feel comfortable during a very sad and difficult time. Everything ran smoothly and we were informed of every step during the process. I would recommend his services to everyone given my experience.

I have had the honour of being involved in 2 funerals run by Agape funerals. They were professional, discrete and very particular about the finer points to make the service specific to the family and the deceased. I would not hesitate in recommending Agape to anyone in their time of need.
