Funeral Director

With heart & soul


As both Funeral Director and Funeral Celebrant, I choose to work with Picaluna, an alternative Funeral company who are transparent, professional and affordable. 10% of their profits goes back to the charity of your choice and their service is impeccable. Call me on M: 0425 213 338 if you or your loved one wishes to plan a wonderful send-off and provide valuable input into the music, tributes and choices for their funeral. This can restore peace of mind and be a very healing and helpful process at a time when people feel helpless.

Farewell to a Fisherman


Melissa’s professionalism outshines most & you can be assured that she will go out of her way for any special requests you may have & make them happen. I had many people approach me after my mother’s and my husband’s Services to tell me how impressed they were with the way Melissa conducted the service. Melissa is not only very professional, she is also very warm, gentle & caring. I would recommend Melissa Halliday to anyone out there that is looking for one of the best to be celebrant for their loved ones funeral.


I would like to acknowledge the sensitive care and support you have given me over the toughest period of my life, in losing my mother to cancer. Melissa was thoughtful and respectful and always available to help. Melissa is an experienced professional that from my perspective was just born to do this line of work. I will happily recommend her service to anyone and she is worth every cent. Without a doubt in my mind an industry leader in her field of work, that has the heart and soul of an angel.


Mel, thank you so much for making yesterday so special.

We had a grand send off for Rob. I’m sure he was smiling with us.

You were the perfect match. So many people thought you were a friend – and of course you are now!
