I have been a social worker for many years and always thought in the event of a patient’s death it wouldn’t be a good idea to go to any of their funerals as it would be emotionally draining for me. I recently had a change of mind and went to a funeral service of one of my patients that I became very good friends with. The service was conducted by Bell Funerals at Fawkner Memorial Park it was a large service with plenty of spirit. There were five speakers ranging from family to friends that wanted to get up and have their say about him. It was a real celebration of his life. It’s funny sometimes how we seem to find out more about a person after they have gone and I think if we should spent more time listening to people when they are alive, the world would be a better place. After the service everybody was asked to go outside to witness the release of doves and it was amazing. Everybody joined hands and there seemed to be a sense of humanity go through the air that made the hairs on my arms stand up. After that, because he was from Scottish origin it was prearranged that a bagpiper start playing Danny Boy which was so appropriate for him. It has been I month now since his passing and I recently received from the family a copy of a video of the service that the funeral director had arranged. In reflection it was the only funeral I have ever been to that seemed to include all the mourners as part of the family. I would like to offer my sincere condolences to his family and thank them for including me. Congrats to Bell Funeral Services I think you did an amazing job

Appalling, pathetic. Shoddy from start to finish. When our mother passed away in January, I decided to engage Bell Funeral Services as our funeral directors. I wish I hadn't. For starters, when they say they'll ring you back, they won't. When we decided to engage them, I left a message and was assured someone would ring me back later that day. At close of business that day, wanting to book a funeral director sooner rather than later, I rang them back, after waiting to hear back from them all day, to be told "Oh, I was just about to ring you". If you're comparing funeral services in the Heidelberg area, be aware that "Female Care Funerals" is just a part of Bell Funeral Services; it is not a separate business. So if you think you're comparing prices of two competitors, you're not. "Female Care Funerals" is simply a division of Bell Funeral services. This is not mentioned anywhere on either of their websites, which is misleading, if not downright deceitful. When they quote you a price, they may remember to include GST, they may not. We got one quote with GST (from "Female Care Funerals") and one quote without GST (from Bell Funeral Services). When you call them, they don't identify the name of the business, or the person you're speaking to. The phone is usually just answered with a very abrupt - almost annoyed - "Can I help you?", and it's up to the customer has to ask who they've rung, to be sure. When you meet them in person, they won't introduce themselves either. They leave it to the grieving client to awkwardly ask "And you are...?" When we met our young consultant, he hadn't been even briefed that we were the son and daughter of the deceased. He seemed confused about our relationship to her, and had to ask us. They accept payments via EFT, but THEY DON'T KNOW THEIR OWN BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS. Then, when they say that the person who does know their bank account details will ring you back that afternoon... they actually mean 3 DAYS LATER. I got more...
