About: Chapter House Funerals is a family owned and operated funeral director in Melbourne with offices at 400 High Street, Kew and Level 27, 101 Collins Street, Melbourne. 


‘Every life has a story to tell’ is a series of documentaries created by funeral directors Liddy and Troy Upfield. Chapter House does not feel like a traditional funeral home with intention. There are no coffins on display, and nothing to make a family feel that others have been here in their process of grieving and bereavement. Chapter House wanted it to feel like it is their client's space, a place that is safe and that nothing needs to be done in a hurry. Chapter House encourages the community to use their space in Kew for functions such as art exhibitions, information sessions or just to call in and have coffee and tell their story. chapterhouse.com.au
