Cremation or Burial

Cremation is the preferred method of farewell of over 80% of Australians. Newhaven owned Eco crematoriums are the most modern facilities of their kind in Queensland.

We provide air conditioned chapels, catering facilities, internet streaming and immaculately maintained memorial gardens. Views of trees and natural Australian bushland surround.

State of the art equipment is selected to ensure low environmental impact. Computer controlled exhaust and secondary chambers means waste gases are treated within the machine and expelled as cool, clean air.

All facilities are able to comply with the request to view the process. The cremated remains are processed and returned or memorialised in a large urn usually after 72 hours.

Our crematoriums are available to all local funeral directors and to members of the public who wish visit.

Live internet streaming is available at our Eco Memorial Park Chapels.

The majority of cemeteries today are lawn cemeteries where a small block of concrete is set in the lawn and an inscribed plaque is set on to it. This enables much easier maintenance and usually a much tidier appearance.

Cemeteries have a day a week on which they remove all the flowers. This is necessary for the lawns to be cared for correctly. Except for immediately after a burial all flowers must be placed in the prescribed receptacles which are provided. This promotes uniformity and prevents the cemetery owner becoming liable for breakages.

Cemetery plots may be pre-purchased. Our funeral director or local council can arrange that for you or a plot may be purchased “at need”.
