Meet Guardian Funerals in Bankstown

Guardian Funerals has many decades of experience with many Guardian funeral homes having served their local communities since the 1940s, even as early as 1885 in Richmond and Windsor. We have been proudly serving the Bankstown community since 1937.

Our compassionate funeral directors at Guardian Funerals in Bankstown can help you arrange a memorable funeral service to celebrate and honour your loved one’s life. We will work closely with you during the days following their passing, providing gentle guidance when you need it most. It’s the personal touches which makes every funeral authentic to the memory of the life lost. Our funeral directors have shared some of their stories of how families have honoured their loved ones in the Book of Life so that you can draw inspiration for your own arrangements.  Ask us how we can help you create a personalised funeral for your loved one.

Our compassionate funeral directors proudly serve all Bankstown families including all surrounding areas such as Greenacre, Punchbowl, Condell Park, Yagoona, Wiley Park, Lakemba and Mount Lewis.
