Continuing a family legacy
Ian and Botanical Funerals continue the Allison family legacy of excellence in funeral services started by his relatives in Richmond, Melbourne in 1860. We are proud of our heritage and several traditional elements which are maintained in our funerals today but equally intent on serving the current and modern needs of our client families.
