Funeral venues near Melbourne

Yarra Valley Funeral Venues

The Yarra Valley is situated approximately one hour’s drive from Melbourne.

With rolling hills strung with vines, secluded natural valleys set against blue mountain backdrops and lush greenery and pastures, past towering trees and pristine rivers to verdant villages.  Within the Yarra Valley,  Greenhaven Funerals are able to offer local families many choices of funeral venues and churches to create a beautiful celebration of life service for your loved one.

St Mary’s Chapel
St Mary’s Chapel was Wandin’s original Anglican Church, built in 1926 in Beenak Road, a short distance across the surrounding farms from Mont De Lancey. The small wooden church was built through the efforts of a group of nuns from St Michael’s Grammar School St Kilda who in 1918 established a retreat in Wandin and became a much-loved part of the community.

In 1993 the church building was offered to Mont De Lancey, deconsecrated and relocated to make way for a larger building. The bell tower, built in the 1930’s and serving in the early years as a fire bell when six tolls summoned volunteer fire fighters, was also relocated. The richly polished wood interior of the building is as it was when the Anglican sisters first decorated it.  St Mary’s Chapel is a beautiful and very affordable funeral venue located in the Yarra Valley.  For more information on organising a funeral ceremony from this chapel, please contact Greenhaven Funerals on 9569 0534.
