Arranging A Funeral In Adelaide

Mattiske Funerals has helped generations of South Australians celebrate the lives of their loved ones with the love, care and attention they deserve.

Arranging a funeral is always a difficult time for any family and we are here to make it easier. We have been helping families in the northern suburbs of Adelaide from our head office in Salisbury and in the north eastern suburbs from our Clovercrest Chapel in Para Vista for more than 54 years. Our central location means we are able to easily arrange your funeral service regardless of what church, chapel, cemetery, or crematorium you choose to use in South Australia.

What Are Some Major Decisions To Make?

You’re going to need to make some major decisions when arranging a funeral. We can help you make the best choice for yourself and for your loved ones farewell. Here’s just a few things to think about:

  • What sort of service do you want? A burial or cremation?
  • Where in Adelaide will you hold your funeral service? What time will it be?
  • Who is going to conduct your service? A celebrant, a member of the clergy, or a family member?
  • Do you want a viewing?
  • What sort of coffin do you want and who will be the pall bearers?
  • Do you want any special inclusions in your service? Perhaps music, a specially prepared eulogy or a slideshow celebrating the life of your loved one.

Mattiske Funerals is pleased to be able to offer you a range of funeral options so you can personalise the ceremony to your wishes. You can see a full list of the options here, or speak to us about a special request. Alternatively we also offer a range of pre-set burial packages and cremation packages.
