Our mission is simple: first, to co-create reasonably priced and uniquely personal farewells, funerals, and end of life rituals that reflect each individual’s authentic self. second, to offer a gentle and secure circle of support to those grieving a loss.

Serving Melbourne and country Victoria, The Last Hurrah funerals caters for all people of all nations, cultures, subcultures, and persuasions. Secular and atheist funerals are a speciality, and earth-based rituals and ceremonies are thoughtfully catered for.

The Last Hurrah team also encourages vigils, the family taking the deceased home to lie in state, or at our venue, late-night wakes for weeping and rousing remembrance, shroud burial, DIY funeral assistance, and more.

We offer Natural burials and eco-cremations, body donor memorial packages, New Orleans and Punk style send-offs, home vigils and funerals, and much more.

The Last Hurrah hold no specific ethos in regard to how the dead should be farewelled; instead our primary aim is to support those who are grieving to farewell their kith and kin in a way that is meaningful to them, and to create funerals and rites that truly and authentically reflect the person who has died.

We are happy to work with any religious or cultural traditions, and have made it a priority to connect with other funeral providers and clergy from many traditions in Melbourne, in order to support these kinds of rituals in a sensitive and authentic fashion, while still offering our compassionate and unique services.

The Last Hurrah is a fiercely independent funeral company. We align ourselves to a model of operation based on transparency, flexibility, and integrity. That means we minimise mark-ups on products and services, have a clearly defined and itemised price-list, and offer a reasonable service fee that reflects our deep commitment to a personal, authentic, and tailored experience for our clients.




The Last Hurrah values:

* Inclusivity for all people regardless of gender, sexual orientation, religion, subculture, or creed

* Fervent support for the LGBTIQA+ and associated communities

* Provide services that are easily accessible for persons with disabilities

* Freedom for families to choose the way they want to farewell their kith and kin; we serve you

* Respect for family constellations and a lack of judgement regarding people’s situations and circumstances

* Transparency with regard to our products, services, pricing, and company structure

* A gentle and supportive approach to mediating difficult decisions for families and significant others in a compassionate, flexible way that allows each person the space to share what’s on their mind and in their hearts

* The right for families and friends to take as much or as little control as they feel they need to say goodbye

*Bringing the dead home for families to spend time with, if that feels right to them

I instantly felt very comfortable with you Kimba. It really made me feel that an old friend took over the reigns with thoughtful suggestions and then effectively putting everything in place and in such a short time frame which in turn enabled the Memorial to be such a befitting celebration, with caring people coming together. So many new faces, some lasting friendships created through this tragic experience.

The memorial and gathering Kimba organised for our son and brother was more than just a funeral or ceremony. She captured who Andy was and his spirit. We were impressed by Kimba's knowledge of the industry and her personal caring and friendly approach. She provided an affordable and sustainable memorial. But more than that, she gave us a deeply personal and caring experience which was totally appropriate for the gathering and forever remembered and appreciated by all who loved our son/brother. She guided us through an extremely difficult and sad period. She anticipated our needs and kept in constant communication with the family throughout the process. We cannot even begin to express how eternally grateful and moved we were by her work and presence

Kimba is incredible, her dedication, and heartfelt service is second to none. We are so grateful to have been referred to The Last Hurrah for my Dads funeral. It’s beautiful to know he was treated with such respect and dignity. With such a beautiful and personal ceremony. I would recommend 1000 times over. And as much as I hope I never have to plan another funeral. If I have to, I would look no further. A much better experience than I ever could have hoped for.
