The Most Dignified Funeral Service
   Home      Our story for you


Rodney’s first experience in the Funeral Industry started many years back when, looking for a new challenge, he took up a position as a funeral arranger and celebrant with an established funeral directing firm in Adelaide. With an extensive entrepreneurial background, he quickly learned the business and found he cherished the interaction with families and the opportunity to assist them. Opportunities for advancement in that company were limited however, so Rodney decided to move on; but it seemed the funeral industry wasn’t quite ready to let him go.

Tragically in September 2005, a good friend of Rodney’s passed away suddenly, and despite having just left the funeral industry, Rodney rose to the challenge of arranging a very special funeral for his friend.

Rodney called in favours from colleagues he had met during his time in the industry, borrowing a hearse and hiring funeral parlour facilities. "It was by far the most challenging funeral I had ever arranged" Rodney admitted, "but at the same time I felt really honoured to be given such a responsibility and especially because it was a friend", he added.

The funeral was flawless. The service, held at the St Patrick Catholic Church in Grote Street, was followed by an interment at the historic West Terrace Cemetery. Rodney personally arranged every detail of the funeral including the handmade in house floral tributes, a haunting didgeridoo performance, as well as coordinating the wake at the Hampshire hotel. "I believe that a funeral must be a meaningful reflection of the life passed at the same time providing a service that everyone could afford. Now through Signature Funerals I am able to provide a truly comprehensive service.

Following his friend's funeral in 2005, Rodney became determined to establish his own funeral business.

Rodney found himself in a position to realise his vision, and Signature Funerals was born.
