Company Profile

Durdin & Forgie Family Funeral Directors is an Australian family-owned and operated funeral business.

Durdin Funerals was started back in the 1920s in Hamley Bridge by local builder W.H. Durdin. In the 1960’s Durdins acquired Ahrns Bros Funerals in Balaklava, expanding to care for families in both Hamley Bridge and Balaklava. His grandson Warren took over the business in the early 1980’s.

Durdin & Forgie Family Funeral Directors was established in 2003 when Durdin Funerals became part of Taylor & Forgie in Gawler. This marked a period of investment in facilities at the Scotland street premises with a new 110-seat chapel being constructed and improved community services.

While many things have changed since the 1920’s, the human, caring, attentive service side of the business remains the same, and will always be of paramount importance. Arranging and carrying out a funeral that best helps families cope and assists with the adjustments that must be made, is of vital importance. Very high standards are expected of all staff resulting in a reputation for funeral excellence. Durdin & Forgie Family Funeral Directors prides itself on being a caring and compassionate, family-owned and operated business.

Our male and female professional funeral directors are available at all hours, 7 days. They will give you a full range of options and attend to all requirements personally:

  • Chapel and refreshment Areas.
  • Family ‘grief after-care’ support.
  • Offices and funeral arrangement rooms.
  • Pre-paid funeral information
  • Viewing room
  • Accredited mortuary
  • Funeral premises tour by appointment

At Durdin & Forgie Family Funeral Directors we have No Hidden Costs and all prices are clearly explained by the funeral consultant at the time of the arrangement. The cost is given in writing and you have time to change any costs before the funeral.
