The cost is always substantially more expensive than a Cremation service, as a Burial plot must be purchased.
A Burial or Graveside service generally takes place at a cemetery. Cemeteries are usually run by the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board or a Local Shire.
There may also be a viewing of the body prior to the funeral service where your loved one is dressed and presented for family and friends to privately pay their respects and say their final goodbyes. Viewings are normal in many cultures and can be very helpful in coping with grief.
Certain religious dominations may also require a Rosary service which is generally conducted in a Church on the evening prior to the funeral service.
A hearse and other funeral cars can be provided for family members to travel to and from the service in.
We are more than happy to arrange a Headstone, Memorial or a Bronze plaque for our clients as we have over 15 years’ experience in this area.
Hearse, Flowers, Funeral Notices, Booklets, Attendance card, Music, Celebrants, Priests, Ministers, Limousine transport can all be arranged at the family’s request.
Any special touches or considerations the family has no matter how small it may seem will always be incorporated into the funeral service where possible.
*Grant fee is what the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board charges for a 25 year grant on the burial plot. This fee varies depending on where the grave site is located and is waved when a burial occurs in a grave where a family member already has a current Grant.
