No Service Cremation

If your loved one has requested to keep their funeral affairs simple and private, a no service cremation or an unattended cremation is a suitable choice. It allows for the basic requirements of a cremation funeral to be fulfilled. This includes transfer of the body, mortuary care and preparation, a basic coffin, transport and cremation to any certificate requirements. It’s a simple and cost-effective funeral option with no hidden extras. Payment in full will be required at arrangement.

Basic Cremation Package

A basic cremation package allows an attended funeral service prior to the transport and subsequent cremation at the crematorium. It lets mourners in attendance gather and support one other as they complete their final rites. Apart from fulfilling the aforementioned requirements, this package further includes a chapel/church fee, a celebrant/minister fee and a fresh floral sheath. A 50% deposit is required on arrangement and the balance is to be settled on the day of the service. Additional charges will only apply if an oversized coffin ($200) or a private viewing on a day other than the service ($290) is requested.

Basic Burial Service

A basic burial fulfills all the requirements of a traditional funeral. It provides a dignified farewell for your loved one without the unnecessary expenses that are often not needed. If you’d like to keep things simple while completely covering all the possible requirements of a burial funeral service, this package helps you avoid any additional charges. The only change to the cost is if an oversized coffin ($200) is required or a private viewing on a date other than the service ($290) is requested. Note that a 50% deposit is expected upon arrangement and the balance is due on the date of the service.

Prearranged/Prepaid Funerals

Funerals incur unexpected financial costs for many families. They can be difficult to deal with. We offer prearranged or prepaid funerals to make your finances much easier to manage. This way, you can pay a fixed price that remains true to today, effectively eliminating your financial burden. If you’d like peace of mind for both you and your family, a prepaid funeral allows you to access a secure system that places reserved funds for a beautiful ceremony for you or your loved one in the future.
