The James Family. From Right: Graham James, Judy James, Karen Giles, Alison James (Absent: Samantha James)

Alfred James & Sons was founded by my grandfather in 1922. He commenced business in Unley when he and his wife May conducted their first funeral at the West Terrace Cemetery. My father, Murray, joined the company in 1930 and after World War II my father’s brother, Nelson, entered the business.

I joined the company in 1962 and now, as Managing Director, am very proud to manage a team of dedicated, professional carers. Our board of directors includes family members: my wife Judy and daughter Alison who represents the fourth generation.

The important principles that Alfred, Murray and Nelson cherished were a kindness and deep understanding for those who suffered the loss of someone they loved. Today these principles are still the basis of the James Family professional funeral services.

Alfred James Funeral Homes are conveniently located at Unley, Prospect, Alberton, Lockleys, South Plympton, Holden Hill and Morphett Vale.
