A Memorial or Wake at The Mercure Melbourne Doncaster

Servicing all areas of Metropolitan Melbourne, Tomorrow Funerals is the only Melbourne funeral business to concentrate exclusively on memorial services.

This means we specialise in ‘Celebrations of Life,’ which starts with a premium cremation (included in our transparent funeral package,) at outstanding venues like Mercure Melbourne Doncaster, in the north east of Melbourne.

Our memorials offer a modern way to remember someone, outside of a traditional funeral parlour or church. A memorial with Tomorrow, allows you to create a truly personalised celebration of life, whilst incorporating what is usually known as the wake. Essentially, the funeral and wake become one memorial event.

A ‘celebration of life’ at The Mercure Doncaster

The Mercure Doncaster’s elevated location, 121 metres above sea level, provides unparalleled views of Melbourne City’s skyline and the serene Yarra Ranges, making it an ideal setting for an Eastern suburbs life celebration. 

The Mecure’s versatile event spaces cater to gatherings of all sizes, from intimate affairs through to larger style functions; its expansive outdoor terrace also offers a serene atmosphere for reflection.

This option may particularly appeal to those who have led vibrant, dynamic lives, lovers of travel and dining out, high flyers or people who were the life of the party! With a view of the mountains, from up high it’s also a perfect spot for a Melbourne Chinese funeral, or memorial service.

Why should we consider a memorial service at The Mecure hotel?

We believe that planning a fitting memorial includes considering a location that matches the style and personality of the person’s life.

Choosing a hotel like The Mercure Doncaster for a memorial service offers numerous benefits, including convenient accommodations for out-of-town guests and seamless catering arrangements for post-service gatherings. Adjacent to the bustling Westfield Doncaster Shopping Centre, hotels like the Mecure are easily accessible for all attendees and set themselves apart as a life-celebration venue by offering premium locations and amenities.

How do we plan a memorial service?

At Tomorrow, we specialise in ‘non-traditional’ memorial services, (meaning ‘outside of a church or funeral parlour.’) Our memorial events are also held after the cremation, without a coffin present.

Our funeral package includes a dignified cremation, an experienced funeral Celebrant and a ‘stories bundle’ with lots of inclusions like a tribute video, a bound keepsake book and personal website dedicated to your loved one. The Tomorrow Funeral package is $6,800 and includes everything you need for the cremation and ceremony aspect.

This simple package works well with ‘Mercure Melbourne Doncaster’s’ own event packages.

On top of that, your Tomorrow Funeral Celebrant will be there to help you every step of the way to book and liaise with Mercure Melbourne Doncaster, if you need that kind of support.
