About us

Purslowe Funeral Homes was established in Northam in 1907 when James William Purslowe began conducting "dignified" funerals throughout the WA Wheatbelt. Family members expanded the company, opening branches in Perth over a period of four generations.

In 1994, the Purslowe family sold the company to Service Corp International who then sold it to a Public Company called Invocare.

Rob and Dianne Tinetti managed the Northam branch from 1993 under three different owners until October 2005 when Rob and Dianne purchased the Northam branch, now known as Purslowe Tinetti Funerals. The funeral home has turned a full circle, once again becoming a local family owned business.

The Tinetti family have lived in Northam since 1985. Rob is an Honours recipient of Funeral Management and a Qualified Embalmer, a Shire Councillor, past President of Northam Chamber of Commerce, and past President of Rotary and Northam Share & Care.

Rob and Dianne have been joined by their eldest daughter Tina in providing families with quality funeral service throughout the Wheatbelt and Metropolitan areas.
