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.
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.
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.

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 ( for Andy's memorial). Thank you, Kimba.

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 timeframe 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 beautiful attention to our family during our sorrow was very much appreciated. You allowed us to feel completely dependent on your services with utmost confidence that the necessary arrangements would be fulfilled with dignity and respect.

We are so grateful to have had Kimba to guide us through the funeral process, she was kind and resourceful and made it as simple as possible to navigate. For us especially, she made the secular ceremony a beautiful experience and was extremely understanding of our non-traditional family structure. She was the perfect person to help us and we would without hesitation recommend her services.
