The Venue

Funerals can be conducted in many different places throughout South Australia. Many families will have a funeral in a traditional venue such as a church, chapel or one of our seven funeral homes located in Unley, Prospect, Lockleys, Alberton, South Plympton, Morphett Vale and Holden Hill.

There are many other options available including:

  • beaches
  • bushland
  • ovals
  • parks
  • family homes
  • racecourses
  • golfcourses
  • wineries

Your Alfred James funeral director can make all the arrangements for your venue.

When booking a funeral venue or location it’s also important to think about the number of people who will be attending. The following considerations can influence the number of people likely to attend: age of the deceased (the younger the more people); size of the family; number of friends; deceased’s membership of clubs and organisations; and employment history.

In some circumstances people choose to have no ceremony. This is called a Disposition Funeral. In these cases, Alfred James can still arrange all the paperwork and care of the deceased, just without the funeral service.
