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.
Our funeral home was renovated in 2018, an iconic building on the corner of Bestic Street & Princess with state of the art, modern facilities which include an onsite chapel, arrangement room and a refreshments room. We share our beautiful funeral home with White Lady Funerals.
