About Bellarine Memories
Since our founding in 2005, our people have been here to serve the beautiful communities of Ocean Grove and the Bellarine Peninsula. Here to give our absolute best, always. Here to help the families that honour us with their trust.
Bellarine Memories was founded when two close friends, Philip Christian and Richard Grimmett, decided to embark on more creative and more personal ways to commemorate important milestones in life. The home they chose for their business was also the home they chose for their lives; Ocean Grove, where their families live, work, grow and study to this day.
As founders, Philip and Richard’s business relationship has resulted in Bellarine Memories becoming a valued and trusted mainstay in the local community – one that’s been both challenging and fulfilling for all concerned.
“We have had so much satisfaction in helping the people we have helped. That outweighs any of the struggles.” – Philip Christian and Richard Grimmett, Co-founders
As the business became stronger, so did its ties with the local community. Today, Bellarine Memories has established excellent relationships with local churches, meeting venues, restaurants, wineries and more – all of which can be so valuable in creating an event that remembers and celebrates a life.
In 2015, Bellarine Memories joined with the locally owned and operated Kings Funerals group, a move that gives us even more scope to serve and benefit the people of this area. It’s just another forward step in the development of a progressive and innovative company, a company that’s here to make a difference, here for Ocean Grove – here for you.
