The Salvation Army is expanding its well-regarded funeral services into the Mornington Peninsula and Melbourne.

Salvos Funerals began in NSW in 2017 and since then has conducted more than 1500 funerals, the proceeds from which help pay for The Salvation Army’s vital frontline mission across Australia.

“By choosing Salvos Funerals, you will not only receive a service full of compassion, but you will also contribute to the incredible work of The Salvation Army’s 2000 services across Australia, helping people in need every day,” said Salvos Funerals sector adviser Marc Allison.  “At Salvos Funerals we really care about the people we support. As part of The Salvation Army, we pride ourselves on going above and beyond in people’s time of need, giving them transparent advice and practical support.”

With a 160-year history, the name Allison is synonymous with funerals in Melbourne, and Marc has devoted himself to the funeral sector full time for 13 years.  In that time he has learnt much about the process of grief and the importance of how a funeral service helps in adjusting to life without a loved one.

“As an organisation that is Christ-centred and devoted to caring for people at their point of need, offering funeral services was a logical progression for The Salvation Army,” he said. “Funerals help us to pause and reflect on who and what we have lost. They bring people together to grieve, comfort one another and find hope. At Salvos Funerals, we ensure our services reflect genuine compassion to everyone we help. We welcome and assist those with specific cultural, religious and non-religious requirements without discrimination.”

The expansion into the Greater Melbourne area provides further opportunities to connect with and support the community, while generating money to maintain vital Salvos services. “Rarely are people more vulnerable than when a loved one has passed away,” Marc said. “But sadly, some in the funeral industry can be largely transactional, lacking in compassion to those in grief. By its very nature, Salvos Funerals sets itself apart from such practices to provide the holistic care The Salvation Army is well-known for.”

As well as organising your funeral, The Salvation Army can also provide pastoral follow-up by a Salvos officer and support via Salvos stores, Moneycare and Doorways among other services.  Salvos Funerals also provides prepaid funerals.
