Who Owns Le Pine Funerals?

When selecting a funeral home, one question you need to consider is whether to engage a large corporation (like Le Pine Funerals) or the services of a smaller, Australian and family-owned funeral home. While large corporations have the benefit of a well-known brand, it often means that you’ll pay a premium, and you may not have as much flexibility to personalise the funeral, so it’s worthwhile to consider all of your options.
