Meet Blackwell Funerals

Torrensville, SA

Blackwell Funerals has over 70 years of experience in tailoring funeral services to the needs and values of families in South Australia, having served the local community since the late 1940.

Our compassionate funeral directors at Blackwell Funerals are here to help you arrange a funeral that truly reflects your loved one’s life.

We help families from across the western suburbs of Adelaide, including Underdale, Seaton, Findon, Flinders Park, Kidman Park, Thebarton, Mile End, Cowandilla, Allenby Gardens, West Hindmarsh, Brooklyn Park, Plympton, Grange, Henley Beach, Hindmarsh, Welland, Fulham Gardens and surrounding areas. 

Given the wonderful diversity of people, cultures and religions in this area, we are very experienced in arranging all types of funeral services. Two of our expert funeral directors, Rocco Carpentieri and Krystle Inglis, specialise in Italian and Greek funerals; and we can also help with all other religious and non-religious funerals.

Blackwell Funerals Torrensville proudly sponsors many organisations including ANFE, the Society of St Hilarion Aged Care and the Greek Orthodox Community.
