Complaints Handling

The experience of our client families is very important to us and we are keen to resolve any issues you may have as promptly as possible.


Resolving Your Issues

As required by the Funeral Act 2006 (Vic), Nelson Bros Funeral Services has a complaints handling procedure.

Whilst it is hoped that any concerns can be addressed by the Funeral Consultant assisting you with the funeral arrangements, if this is not possible, the following procedures should be followed.

If you have any concerns with the level of service and care we have provided, you may convey them to our General Manager via any of the following means:


In person:

By appointment at a mutually convenient time and place;

By telephone:

By phoning (03) 8398 4333 during normal business hours;

In writing:

By outlining your concerns in a letter, email, fax or via our website. To ensure a prompt response, please include your contact details.

We may need to communicate with you during the investigation process to clarify aspects of the complaint.

Response And Communication

We will provide you with a response to the complaint as soon as possible after completing an appropriate investigation.
