About 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.

With Guardian funeral homes across metropolitan Sydney and the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, our funeral directors can help you arrange a funeral that truly reflects what life meant to your loved one, and what they meant to you.

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.

Our History

While Guardian Funerals has more than 50 years of experience in funeral care, many of the businesses that have joined our network have much longer records of service to families and their local communities. The longest established Guardian Funerals branded locations began serving the local communities in Richmond and Windsor in 1885.

There are currently more than 30 funeral homes in our network in New South Wales and the ACT, recognised by the same symbol in the logo. Each of our funeral homes provides all the care and guidance a family needs to plan a funeral that honours and celebrates the life and values of someone special to them.

Our Culture

Guardian's funeral directors know that each funeral service is unique and that a funeral that has been personalised to the memories of the deceased as well as to the needs of the family is a funeral that will be remembered for years to come.

Guardian's funeral directors will work beside you to include special themes in the ceremony that reflect the life of the person you are honouring, whether it is a traditional, religious service or a modern, contemporary service reflective of your loved one and their tastes.

At Guardian Funerals, our experience and understanding of the funeral needs of all of Sydney's cultural groups, as well as of modern funeral practices and our involvement in the local communities we service means we are able to assist clients from a wide range of backgrounds with their funeral arrangements.

We will offer you the time you need to have all your questions answered and for you to think about all of your choices so that we can make the funeral you are arranging one that everyone will remember. You can come see your local funeral director, or give us a call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 1300 662 172.
