Funeral Options & Costs

Our professional services are flexible depending on what aspects of funeral care you require. We support as much family involvement as you wish, although we offer full funeral care. All options can be customised to include natural care, embalming, a casket of your choice, viewing, washing and dressing, funeral service locations, a celebrant, catering, slideshow, service cards, flowers, candles, memorial books, recording the service and live streaming.

full funeral

A full funeral service is open to anyone to attend who knew the person and can be held in any venue that can be hired. It’s good to have an idea of how many people may attend, hard to guess I know. It’s usual for family and friends to speak and to have a celebrant, clergy or open mic and offer refreshments to your guests. The service can be live streamed to those who are unable to attend. You may like to give guests a card with a photo and order of service, and have a slideshow of a broad range of photos. This service can precede cremation or burial.

Private Good Bye

A private or family farewell is saying goodbye without the whole world knowing. So no service notifications or newspaper notices and respectfully letting others know it’s just family time. This could be a simple visit before cremation or burial. Or a gathering of close family and friends saying a few words, maybe writing a message on the coffin or having morning or afternoon tea together. Or a celebratory glass of wine. Then following to cremation or not as you wish.

A direct cremation has become a popular choice for those that don’t want fuss or huge expenses. It is possible to have your own gathering at a later date or have a memorial service for relatives and friends. This option doesn’t include seeing the person again. Although there is paperwork to sign as family details are required. We use simple cardboard and ply coffins for direct cremation and ashes are quickly available if they are to be present for a memorial service.

A memorial service doesn’t have the body present.

You can organise a Memorial Service yourself or engage our help. Below are our costs for direct cremation. This means not seeing the person after death and not washing or dressing, a simple cremation coffin and a return of ashes to you to be present at a memorial service or not as you wish.

Extra costs are involved if you would like us to organise a memorial service for you.
