Funeral Costs

The cost of an individual funeral will be determined by the wishes of the family. In cases where your loved one has made prearrangements, then those prior wishes will need to be considered. Funerals are a very personal choice; you may prefer simplicity and elegance or an elaborate funeral, we are happy to facilitate that for you.

The main costs involved are:

  • Professional Service Fee: This fee covers the services which we provide to the family of the deceased, preparing and conducting the funeral service, preparation and presentation of the deceased, provision of specialised vehicles and maintenance, provision of appropriate premises and equipment, training of our staff, the lodgement of the necessary government forms, workers compensation, compulsory superannuation, taxes, rates, electricity, wages, insurance, and registrations.
  • The coffin or casket: We have a range of coffins or caskets with varying styles and colours.
  • Itemised separately: Floral tributes, death / funeral notices, the transfer costs, the administration fee, cemetery / cremation fees, a government copy of the death certificate and travel.
  • Outside Costs: In consultation with and approval from the person organising the funeral, the funeral director will pay for other items such as cemetery/crematorium fees, clergy fees, organist fee.
