Purslowe Funerals and Chipper Funerals have come together to bring more than 235 years of combined experience caring for families.
In April 2016, Chipper Funerals welcomed Mareena Purslowe Funerals to the Subiaco funeral home, and we continue to share the premises today. Mareena Purslowe Funerals offers a woman's understanding with a softer, more specialised approach to funeral services.
The Subiaco funeral home gives families a welcoming place to celebrate what life meant to their loved ones, and we opened our doors as Purslowe & Chipper Funerals in December 2017.
Values – we all hold them dear. Some drive us, some inspire us and they can say a lot about us.
Purslowe & Chipper Funerals Subiaco is centrally located in Subiaco with neighbours including the Subiaco Hotel, Domain Stadium, Princess Margaret Hospital with many smaller parks in close proximity.
We're proud to serve Subiaco families and those in surrounding communites including Crawley, Daglish, Jolimont, Nedlands and Shenton Park.
Our Subiaco team can help bring your family together to arrange a funeral service that truly celebrates and honours the life and values of your loved one.
The team at Purslowe & Chipper Funerals Subiaco are with you every step of the way, keeping you informed and guiding you through the arrangements as much or as little as you need.

Celebrate the life of your loved one in our spacious Reflection Chapel. We are happy to personalise the chapel and add personal touches to create a special funeral service as unique as the person who has passed away.
There is plenty of parking available on side streets in the immediate area. We plan to secure more parking on adjacent land in 2018.

Preplanning your funeral makes sense. It is an act of great care that protects your loved ones financially and emotionally. A prepaid funeral allows you to create a farewell that truly reflects the life you've lived. You will have peace of mind knowing your wishes are recorded, so your funeral is exactly what you want and locked in at today's prices.
Purslowe & Chipper Funerals supports a range of community programs designed to help the young and old alike, as well as hosting memorial services and informational seminars.
Our funeral directors believe in giving back to our community. We are members of your local social group, sporting club and church, and we are dedicated to being sensitive to the communities we serve. We are as proud of the support we provide to community organisations and programs as we are of the care and guidance we provide to families.
Preplanning your funeral makes sense. A prepaid funeral takes the emotional stress off your family, locks in your funeral cost at today’s price, and allows you to plan things your way.
In the Book of Ideas, funeral directors have shared some of their stories of how families have honoured their loved ones, so that you can draw inspiration for your own funeral arrangements.
When you're organising a funeral service, one of the first decisions will be whether you are organising a burial or a cremation. This choice will directly impact the type of funeral service you will have.
