Experience, Trust and Certainty
What kind of funeral service do I require? What do I need to do after a death and who do I need to notify?

At this difficult time, you need a funeral director Melbourne who can advise and guide you where appropriate, and take the load in making all necessary funeral arrangements.
This gives you the time and space:
- To deal with your loss
- To properly reflect on the life of your loved one
- To think about and advise on the most appropriate and dignified farewell

What Makes Selwyn Allen Funerals different?
Selwyn Allen Funerals is one of Victoria’s most established funeral directors – and one of the last remaining independent, family-operated firms in Melbourne. Based in Mount Waverley, Selwyn and his son Geoff have organised thousands of funerals for families throughout Melbourne and Victoria, interstate and overseas.
Selwyn and Geoff are proud to provide:
- Personally tailored religious or secular services designed to meet each client’s specific needs
- The highest-quality service at reasonable prices
- Only Australian-made Caskets and Coffins
From large public ceremonies for fallen police officers killed in the line of duty to small intimate gatherings, Selwyn has been serving bereaved families for almost 50 years. They have benefited from the experience and extensive knowledge of a man who in 1996 received life membership of the Australian Funeral Directors Association (AFDA). Both Selwyn and Geoff are committed to maintaining the high standards required by the funeral sector’s peak organisation.
A Hearse With An Added Touch Of Class
Selwyn’s stellar reputation is perhaps only surpassed by his vintage Armstrong Siddeley – one of only two left in the world. The hearse was imported from Wales and lovingly restored by the Allen family. It has been used in many funerals, and is in high demand around the country from people who share Selwyn’s passion for vintage cars.
Selwyn and Geoff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To find out more contact us or call (03) 9888 1672.
