Cremation Services

Cremation is increasing in popularity as the cost of a burial continues to grow. While almost all Funeral Directors will offer Cremation services, there are differences between providers. Some Funeral Directors offer packages known as basic cremations or a 'direct cremation'. Others offer cremation as part of a comprehensive funeral package, including a memorial service and viewing. The cost of a cremation only (or an unattended service) is usually less than $3,000. Adding extras like flowers, a decorated casket, an elaborate urn or a ceremony will increase the cost of the service. Services that are usually considered standard in any cremation package include transfers into the funeral directors care, a basic coffin or casket, any paperwork required by the Australian Government, including a death certificate.

Cremation Costs

How much doe a cremation cost? While the price of a cremation is similar in most states of Australia, there are some areas that are cheaper than others. The average cost of a cremation package in Brisbane and Perth is $4,600 - while the average price of a cremation in Melbourne and Sydney will set you back closer to $5,000. These prices are for a standard cremation package (inclusive of a memorial service). Some funeral directors below will also offer no service funerals, which are cheaper again as the costs of preparing and carrying out a memorial service will have been removed. After the cremation, the ashes will usually be presented to your family. A simple urn is often included in the cost of the cremation service. Urns that are more extravagant, decorative or plated with precious metals are likely to increase the price of the cremation. All of these options can be discussed with your chosen funeral director.
