At Guardian Funerals we help bring your family together to arrange a funeral service that truly celebrates and honours the life and values of your loved one.
Our funeral directors are with you every step of the way, keeping you informed and guiding you through the arrangements as much or as little as you need. We can tailor the service, creating a customised funeral that respects, honours and reflects the values and the life that was lived.
In the Book of Ideas, funeral directors have shared some of their stories of how families have honoured their loved ones, so that you can draw inspiration for your own funeral arrangements.
Adding a personal touch can make the funeral feel more authentic. Our funeral directors can help you create a funeral that honours and celebrates the life and values of the person who has passed away.
When you're organising a funeral service, one of the first decisions will be whether you are organising a burial or a cremation. This choice will directly impact the type of funeral service you will have.
Each memorial park will have a range of memorial options for you to choose from, suitable to all budgets, beliefs, faiths and cultures. We can recommend a number of memorial parks and gardens in New South Wales.
Preplanning your funeral makes sense. A prepaid funeral takes the emotional stress off your family, locks in your funeral cost at today’s price, and allows you to plan things your way.
A repatriation is where a deceased person is moved from one state or one country to another so that final rites can be performed there. Our funeral directors can arrange repatriations interstate and internationally.
Winter can be a difficult time for many. Free supplies to combat the cold and often wet weather during the winter months can be hard to find.
For others, winter is a great time to be indoors and focus on decluttering the home to rid items no longer required. It feels so incredibly rewarding to know your unwanted items can truly help someone else.
Guardian Funerals and Anglicare are supporting those unfortunate people feeling the cold this winter. Donate items at Guardian Funerals and we'll deliver them to those in need.
Guardian Funerals are as proud of the support we provide to a wide range of community organisations and programs as we are of the care and guidance we provide to families.
We believe in supporting our community. We are members of your local social group, sporting club and church, and we are dedicated to being sensitive to the communities we serve. We use our time, our network of community contacts, our participation in, and our financial resources to support organisations around us.
Guardian Funerals has many decades of experience in tailoring funeral services to the needs and values of families in Sydney and the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales, with many Guardian funeral homes having served their local communities since the 1940s, even as early as 1885 in Richmond and Windsor. Our funeral directors are well-established and connected in the local communities they serve, and proud to uphold the values we believe in: Family, Honour, Trust, Respect, Commitment and Loyalty.
At Guardian Funerals we understand your values, and care about them too. For our values define us all. Our lives. Our loves. Our choices. They make us who we are. And they live on in the hearts and minds of those we love long after the person is gone.
Values – we all hold them dear. Some drive us, some inspire us and they can say a lot about us.
Funerals can seem like a complicated affair, and there is a lot to know. That's why we created this help section to make things just a little easier.
We've provided some information about what to expect from each step of the funeral arrangements, from how to plan ahead or what to do when someone passes away, to what you should expect before, during and after a funeral service.
Planning a funeral when a loved one dies can be a challenging task, but did you know that a funeral can be planned and paid for ahead of time?
A prepaid funeral is a sensible alternative to funeral insurance or funeral bonds, and could save you money - you pay today's price and ensure the service will be tailored to your needs, wishes and budget.
When someone has passed away and if you've never arranged a funeral before, you might not know what you will need to do when a death has occured.
You'll find more information about what to do when a death occurs, what to expect when meeting your funeral director, the Death Certificate and why funerals matter in this section.
There is usually some time between making the initial funeral arrangements with your funeral director, and the time of the actual funeral service.
There are a number of things you may wish to consider before the funeral service, such as the choice of day and time, whether you will have a viewing and if you are writing a eulogy.
Once the funeral service is over, it is time to consider the type of memorial you would like for your loved one.
Your options will depend on wheter it was a burial or cremation service.
We also provide information about scattering ashes and resources for coping with grief.
