Guardian Funerals Merrylands

Guardian Funerals has 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.

Our experienced funeral directors at Guardian Funerals in Merrylands can help you arrange a memorable funeral 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. As Merrylands is an ethnically diverse area our funeral directors have extensive experience in helping families from all cultural and religious backgrounds and traditions. 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.

Guardian Funerals in Merrylands proudly provides funeral services to the families of Merrylands, Parramatta, Greystanes, Auburn, Westmead, Yennora and other nearby surrounding areas. Our funeral directors have experience in arranging various cultural and religious funerals for families in the local area.
