We offer total commitment and the highest dignified care every time.



Basilica Enterprises Pty Ltd, trading as Basilica Funerals is a 100% Australian Owned company based in Melbourne and was established in 1999 by Wilma Righi.

Wilma decided to become a funeral director after the death of her dear late mother (Mrs Tina Righi).  She wanted to help other grieving people like herself in their time of need.  After gaining all the experience she needed plus the extensive training required to become a Professional Funeral Director, and having worked for two of Melbourne's largest funeral companies, Wilma decided to establish Basilica Funerals.

Although Basilica Funerals is a Christian company and specialises in Catholic funerals as well as Australian, Italian and Ethnic Funerals, it also caters for people from all religious faiths and backgrounds. Basilica Funerals aims at helping anyone who is in need at the time of death.

Because you are dealing directly with the owners of the company you can be assured of the highest level of service. Basilica Funerals offers quality funerals at an affordable price with dignity, care and respect at all times.

Basilica Funerals also specialises in Pre-Paid Funeral Plans in which the client's money is securely invested.

Basilica Funerals' caring and professional team understand and are well equipped to help you in your time of need. Basilica Funerals attends to your needs during this difficult time, offering sensitivity, dignity, care and respect at all times.



With many years of experience in both the Funeral and Cemetery Industries, both in Sydney and Melbourne Wilma Righi and her team aims to help people in their time of need when decisions are the hardest to make.  Even though there are numerous Funeral Companies in Melbourne, Wilma quoted 'We just want to make a difference.
