Founder Anthony Joannides (1979)

Since 1979, Joannides Funerals has been a family owned and operated funeral home providing a quality professional service to Melbourne’s Greek families. Our founder, Anthony Joannides, was dedicated to providing compassionate and individual attention to every family who was touched by the loss of a loved one. His business was built on family tradition, dignity, integrity and honesty.

After his passing in 1991, Anthony Joannides' daughter Vriona Joannides worked in the daily operation of the business and was the first Greek woman to become a funeral director in Melbourne. Today, Joannides Funerals continues the proud tradition of being Melbourne’s longest serving Greek funeral home, serving families for two generations.

 We believe creating a meaningful way to pay tribute to your loved one begins with our compassion and is shaped by understanding that each life is truly unique. For us, there is no greater responsibility than honouring and preserving the story of your loved one’s life.
