However, like any service, expenses need to be discussed. It is difficult to provide an accurate cost without knowing the details of the funeral.
Funerals can vary significantly in cost — from the simplest essential care funeral through to the repatriation of a loved one to or from overseas.
After asking a few questions, we will be able to provide you with a more accurate estimate of the costs involved.
Typical funeral expenses include:
- Professional Service Fees: This is the funeral director’s charge.
- Coffin or Casket Choice: We have a range of coffins and caskets from the simple and popular MDF models through to the more expensive solid timber versions.
- Disbursements: These are the out of pocket expenses paid by the funeral company. They include items such as cemetery costs, offering to the celebrant, flowers, advertising and catering.
