Sensible Funerals

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.

Sensible Funerals
In the Keith Russell Family tradition.

We are an independent, South Australian family-owned business, providing simple, honest and respectful funerals at a Sensible price.

Our Chapel
