Mannings funerals fervently embrace all the important qualities that have helped and comforted thousands of bereaved families throughout Melbourne. Since Alan Manning created his funeral home more than 50 years ago Mannings has built a reputation for providing a professional, dignified and cost conscious service.
Alan worked closely with the Repatriation Department in providing funerals for 'friendless soldiers' who had little or no money, or love ones. He believed that no ex-serviceman or woman should be buried as a pauper. Recently, we have received recognition from the Department of Veteran's Affairs for over 50 years of service to the veteran community in the funeral industry. We are the only funeral company to have ever received such an award; this is testament of devotion to our objectives.
Mannings continues to provide sympathy and empathy to families while taking care of all the necessary requirements, special requests and wishes.
