About us

Our History

Our staff of professionals have years of experience caring for families who come to us from all walks of life. Each family does so because we are leaders in our profession, with a dedication to service, and deep professional integrity.

When we meet with a family, our goal is to help them create a fitting, memorable and affordable service for their loved one. We give them the choice of a wide variety of services and products, as well as a wealth of creative ideas and suggestions.

Together, we design a memorial or funeral service that suits their needs now, and in the future. Families who come to us know that years from now, they will have deep peace-of-mind because in coming to us, they've done their best to honour their loved one.


Distinctive Funerals was formed in 2000 by Nick Mastro, Vic Dichiera and their families.  Unlike many funeral firms in South Australia, all decisions are made here, by locals caring for locals.  

The former Distinctive Chapel was formerly a Ukrainian Church which had been modified to suit religious or non-religious services.  A private viewing room and tea and coffee facilities had been installed.  

In 2015 a new purpose built facility was constructed due to the Torrens to Torrens South Road upgrade.  The new building was officially occupied on August 31st, 2015.  A large capacity chapel, dedicated viewing and arranging rooms and spacious lounge are now available. Car parking is now improved with a dedicated car park on the corner of Cator Street and Port Roads, onsite and street parking available
