Planing For A Cremation
Cremations have become the most popular choice for Australian families in our society today. A number of religious groups have relaxed their views and are now more conducive towards the cremation process.
There are three main options for your selection:
- A Disposition funeral is where the family choose to have no service and the deceased is directly cremated without any further family involvement. The cremated remains, or ashes, are usually available for collection in two or three working days.
- A Memorial service is where the deceased has been previously cremated and a Memorial is held at a chosen venue at a later date. We can tailor a memorable and respectful service in the Federation Chapel to suit your needs. This is a cost effective way to bring closure for family and friends.
- The Traditional funeral service followed by cremation. This is the most popular choice for families. Many venues are available. Church, chapels, community halls, open air and the like. A minister of religion or a celebrant normally leads the service. The deceased is usually conveyed to the crematorium after the service, when family and friends have departed. Ashes, again, are available for collection in two to three working days.
Regardless of which one you choose, our highly trained staff will guide you every step of the way in a compassionate and caring manner in our lovely arrangement rooms or we can visit you in the comfort of your own home.
