Sensible Funerals was founded by my father, the late Keith Russell, on the philosophy that a funeral does not have to be elaborate and cost a fortune for it to be dignified and respectful.
Thank you so much for your part in Dad’s funeral. We were all so pleased with the way everything went – your calm and reassuring manner and all of the family present to share in the celebration of Dad’s life. We would certainly recommend Sensible Funerals to others. We have only praise for your kindness, attention to detail and the calm but efficient way in which everything was handled.
Our mother passed away and we looked at a couple of funeral parlours but just couldn’t find the caring we needed. We went into Sensible Funerals and met Rod Conlon. He was amazing from the first moment we met him. He was caring, understanding and went above and beyond to help us. His readings at the service were perfect, it felt like he was a friend in our family. We are so grateful to have dealt with someone so special at our time of sadness. He is definitely someone who has been a pleasure to …
To dear Rod We wish to express our appreciation and sincere thanks for the professional and warm manner in which you conducted our mother’s funeral. Your attention to detail was a tremendous help at this difficult time.
Kind regards Haydn, Cheryl and Merrilyn
Our family would like to thank you Rod, Suzanne and your staff for the excellent guidance and support provided to us during our time of grief. The service you conducted was very respectful, sincere and greatly appreciated. A couple of the people who attended mum’s funeral commented on the sincerity of the ceremony. We will definitely recommend your services.

Dear Rod On behalf of the family I wish to thank you very much for helping us with mum’s funeral arrangements. Your calm, friendly, respectful manner helped a great deal on the day. It was a real comfort and appreciated immensely. Mum’s personal items and flowers were set out beautifully and it was a real joy to see – she would have loved it had she been able to see! It made me feel close to mum still. She pervaded the room. She was honoured in such a lovely way. You seemed to be quietly,…
Your company recently handled the cremation for me of my late mother Elizabeth. Well this email is to say THANK YOU to yourself and your staff for the EXCELLENT CARE, dignity and respect, shown to myself and family at our sad time. The professionalism at Sensible Funerals is absolute. I have no difficulties in recommending your company at any time to anyone. One of the things that impressed me so much was that your company was almost $4000 cheaper than that of another funeral home (and tha…
Hi Rod, I just wanted to say thank you for your care, compassion and understanding at Craig’s funeral on 22nd March. The whole service was exactly what I had hoped it would be. It was actually a very important process for me, to ensure that the best of the man that I knew for so long was celebrated in a way in keeping with his very individual spirit. The way you ran the service, the words you chose and your whole approach was as if you knew and understood Craig, and had a sense of the …
I would like to send our thanks to all of you at Sensible Funerals for the wonderful service that was given for Dad yesterday. It was a truly memorable day of lightheartedness and tears and without Sensible Funerals professionalism it would not have been as such. I will be recommending you to everyone I know.
Thank you Hazel and Family
This is just a line to thank you and your team for all your help, guidance and support up to and including Nev’s funeral yesterday. I cannot put into words how very much I appreciate absolutely everything you did and all the help you gave Aaron. Your professionalism and yet friendly care I know helped him so much. Again, my very sincere thanks for everything.
Dear Rod We would like to thank you for the sensitive and gentle way you guided us through the funeral process – something we knew little about. The service was simple and dignified, as befitted my dad. The Mawson Chapel was very appropriate for my dad too – very peaceful, like being in a garden.

Hi Shanti On behalf of the family I would like to thank you and all the staff at Sensible Funerals for assisting us in our time of grief. The Service was lovely. The kind words that you added were very fitting. Everything was just how it was supposed to be. Although it’s your job, I’d just like to say Thank you.
On behalf of the Dwiar family, I wish to express our thanks for a wonderful service for Dad. There were a number of comments made to several of us that it was a most dignified and enjoyable experience under the circumstances. Once again my personal thanks for the courteous and friendly manner in which you conducted all the arrangements
Thank You Neil Dwiar On behalf of the Family
On behalf of Irene’s family we would like to pass on our heartfelt thanks to your organisation for a wonderful service conducted by Christine. All our family and friends commented on how lovely the service was and it was a beautiful way to send off Irene. Christine’s professionalism and compassion was felt by all the family and friends and we felt that you needed to know that we all appreciated it at a time of reflection on Irene’s amazing life. Many thanks for a wonderful and memorable…
At the time of grief of losing a loved one, we all need time, comfort, compassion and understanding. We were all impressed with Shanti and Tim and the entire staff at SENSIBLE FUNERALS. We received all of the above plus more from these beautiful people, nothing was too much trouble. We as a family were able to do whatever we needed to do to send our loved one off in a way we imagined he would have wanted to go. Even though he was only a young man, being able to do this with the full support …
Please accept from the family, our heartfelt thanks for the most professional manner in which you conducted the Service for Mum in a time of our great loss, and for your assistance and guidance in its preparation.
Tony and Jillian
Dear Rod, Thank you for my dad’s farewell today. I don’t know what else to say. Please know my heart is in that thank you. I am thankful you chose your profession, it means a great deal to those of us on the other side of the podium that people like you are willing to speak for our families. Mum mentioned how happy she was that the Service unfolded the way that it did. She was happy with how dad looked, she said he looked himself. The whole process was made simple and we all appreciated that…
Hi Shanti We would like to thank you so much for dad’s funeral today. We thought you did an amazing job xx Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Love Clare, Evan and Gay Hall xx
When you lose someone you have to make some decisions at a time that your feelings are raw and you could be very vulnerable. Sensible Funerals staff guided us through the process with the minimum of stress. They are NOT in the ripoff business. They have an eco-friendly system that uses a re-usable ‘over casket’ which is what you see and is as flash as any – and it has a basic coffin inside which is not seen and goes to the cremation. Very sensible and cost effective! The Service is held in thei…
Your efficiency and beautiful ceremony for and on behalf of my mum is sincerely appreciated.
Kind Regards Leanne and family
Thank you for the beautiful memory of Les looking peacefully asleep, and the comfortable and respectful funeral space with all we needed, and room (and coffee) for a cuppa afterwards. Thanks for looking after us today.
Please allow me to express “thank you” compliments for your provisions, both preparing and transporting my mother for burial. Four hours after Mum deceased, my introduction to Sensible Funerals was Christine’s helpful and informative manner. Christine shared details and unhurriedly answered my questions and concerns along with explaining and quoting all the prices involved. Your receptionist, Sharon, is “tailor made” for her working role, an excellent asset to your organisation. I have…
We wish to express our sincere thanks for your help and efforts after the death of our father. Your backing and advice helped us as a family make the day of Dad’s funeral a celebration of a life well lived and well loved. Sadness at our loss but thanks for the many years we shared, lived and laughed were prominent in our thoughts. Thanks again.
Bob and family
Dear Christine, Rod and Colleagues I want to thank you for coming off your holidays to give such a meaningful service for Brian’s Celebration of Life and for the support Rod and your colleagues gave us during a difficult time for myself and family. You gave us a beautiful service that is still being talked about by many including us.
Love and So Many Thanks Margaret and Family
We could not have made a better selection when we asked Sensible Funerals to arrange the funeral for our husband and father. Shanti, Tim and their staff were always kind and caring, and their approach was responsive, flexible and highly respectful. They spent time with us to develop a viewing and funeral that was tailored exactly to our wishes; we had some specific requests, and they made those happen. We much appreciate and most highly recommend the service of this wonderful family-bas…
Dear Rod and Staff at Sensible Funerals, We would like to thank you all for your kind, caring and helpful support towards us during such a sad and anxious time. We were very impressed with your services and how you helped us through this process flawlessly, which in turn helped in making this time a little more comfortable for us. A big thank you to the Piper – Brett Tidswell – he did a great job and we can look back and feel happy with our decision to have had the bagpipes in Danny’s fune…
Dear Shanti I would like to thank you and your staff – but particularly you – for your handling of our brother’s funeral. You and your staff were very helpful, sensitive, understanding and the funeral was great because it was simple and unsentimental, but in every way an appropriate memorial. Before we had sorted out the details, I spoke to you and also spoke to Suzanne. From memory I was still quite emotional, but I really appreciate the kindness and patience that was extended to me. …
Hi Rod A very big thank you for conducting a wonderful service on Friday for Dad’s funeral. He would have really liked it! You made the whole process really strees-free for us. Friday was far from stress-free for you with the other service running so late; your calm manner was much appreciated. We had many comments on the service and how it was perfect for Dad. You must have one of the hardest jobs in the world and to conduct a service for someone you have never met and get it so right…
I wanted to say a big thank you for the way in which you handled Dad’s service. The eulogy was delivered perfectly, just as I requested and your warmth and caring was commented on by many of my friends.
Hi Shanti I along with my sisters were impressed with your service and would like to pass on our gratitude. Thank you once again.
Morning Rod, On behalf of my sisters and I, we wanted to thank you for a wonderful service for our mum Joy. It was a beautiful way to remember mum and a lovely tribute to her. Our experience with Sensible Funerals was actually a positive and professional one. All thanks to your lovely manner and knowledge. Thanks again.
Sue Ferguson and all her sisters.
