Russell Brothers Live Stream Services

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions around funeral services Russell Brothers have made it a priority to be able to provide the highest levels of remote video streaming services for any funeral service.

Friends and family who are unable to attend the service are able to log in through a password-protected page and view the funeral service live, from anywhere in the world. There is also a ‘playback’ function for up to one year for those who cannot watch the service live.

  • A family-run approach with down-to-earth, real people who understand what you are going through.

  • Funeral services tailored to the individual, ranging from affordable funerals with simple ceremonies, to something more elaborate.

  • Compassionate support 24 hours, 7 days a week.

  • Prepaid funeral services through Australian Unity.

  • Services at both our newly renovated Mentone Chapel and at Melbourne’s most spectacular memorial parks, including Altona Memorial Park, Bunurong Memorial Park, Fawkner Memorial Park, Lilydale Memorial Park, and Springvale Botanical Cemetery.

  • Flexibility in planning your loved one’s service. What sets us apart from other Melbourne funeral directors is that we will go above and beyond to fulfil your wishes, whether that means dressing in special attire, adding sentimental elements to the service or holding the service at a particular location.
