Funerals in Australia can be quite expensive and while it may not be up there with the cost of weddings, it can certainly put a dent in your pocket.

The emotional side of things can double the burden and make the process feel incredibly overwhelming.

You will want a funeral tribute to celebrate your loved one’s life and be memorable but without having to worry about finances.

There are ways to keep funeral costs down whilst still giving your loved one the ceremony they deserve.

Here is a breakdown on the cost of a Cremation in Brisbane:

Cremations vs Burials

Recent data from the National Funeral Directors Association shows that there were more cremations than burials in 2015.

In Australian cities, cremations now account for about 80% of all funerals. Cremations are also generally less costly than traditional burial services.

Traditional Cremations and Direct Cremations

Traditional cremations in Brisbane typically involve the funeral service at a chapel or church, followed by the cremation.

We can help you with all your funeral arrangements from memorial service to urn selection, giving you the peace of mind you need during this very emotional time.

A Ceremony to Remember

The passing of a loved one is difficult as it is and the last thing you want to do is compromise their memory due to cost.

With the increasing price of burials, cremations in Brisbane are now the most cost-effective option, yet remain as tasteful and respectful as a traditional burial.
