Robert Heritage - Heritage & Heirtage FuneralsLetter from the Director:

Heritage & Heritage -  A True Third Generation Family Business

The origins of Heritage & Heritage Funerals began in Healesville and the Yarra Valley where my late father, Frank Sperry Heritage, commenced business as a Funeral Director in 1934.  On his passing in 1964 I continued the business whilst maintaining the strong emphasis in personal service.

Over a decade ago our new large funeral home was opened at 733 Boronia Road, Wantirna.
Our Lilydale funeral home at 134 Victoria Road is immediately adjacent to the Lilydale Cemetery & Memorial Park, and in mid 2009 the Heritage & Heritage Funeral Home servicing the wider Yarra Valley opened at 1416 Koo Wee Rup Road Woori Yallock.

I am proud to say that these three funeral homes are recognised as the most professional funeral facilities in Victoria and each is equipped to deliver an exceptional level of service and comfort at a demanding time.

Heritage & Heritage Funerals

In recent years my son, Gavan and daughter, Sandra have joined the business so I can proudly say that Heritage & Heritage is a firmly established Australian-owned business with the third generation of the Heritage family actively involved.

Our services have always had the utmost focus on personal assistance and professional care as the death of a loved one, a partner or family member always provides an onerous responsibility.

Heritage & Heritage Funerals

Addressing the stresses and creating the best available environment to establish a memory of a deceased person is always our focus.  Our business systems also complete the statutory requirements involved in notification of a death in accordance with the legislation.  We are widely experienced in creating an appropriate memorial service.  This may include a Church or civil celebrant service, involvement of the RSL or other service organisation, preparation and placement of funeral notices and tributes, together with creating a memorial of a life and the funeral service itself.  We also make the necessary arrangements with cemeteries or related facilities relative to the final resting place that is chosen.  The memorial service can be as diverse as a small family group or one where several hundred people might be anticipated to attend and pay their respects to the deceased.

We also regularly conduct funerals in remote or special locations that are requested as pertinent to the life and experiences of the deceased.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or one of our offices for advice and assistance.  You have my commitment that prompt and professional personal service will always be our benchmark of service.
