What is a Direct Cremation?
A Direct Cremation is a non-funeral option where the cremation takes place separately from your planned celebration or ceremony. With our attention to detail and excellence in service, you can be assured everything will be taken care of at a low cost of just $1450.00 including GST.

Otherwise we do not offer an after transfer viewing, however we can wait to transfer your loved one into our care if you would like to see them first at home or the nursing home.

(2) If you would like to have an after-hours (commencing 4pm or after) or weekend arrangement, there is a cost of $185.00
Taking the time to say goodbye
Whilst different to a traditional formal funeral service, an unattended cremation is equally important in that it allows us to farewell our loved one with dignity, in line with the families wishes. In many cases families will gather privately after the cremation to pay their respects, scatter ashes and say goodbye. This offers those close to the deceased an opportunity to start the grieving process, gather support and eventually find closure.
Whether it is attended or unattended, formal or casual, a Simplified Cremation gives you the choice. A funeral ceremony serves several important needs:
- Funerals helps us acknowledge that someone we love has died.
- Funerals allow us to say goodbye.
- Funerals offer continuity and hope for the living.
- Funerals provide a support system for us, friends, family members and the community.
- Funerals allow us to reflect on the meaning of life and death.
If someone has passed away at home, phone their Doctor or an ambulance first.
The doctor must see the deceased person and certify that life is extinct and be willing to supply a death certificate.
If they are at a Nursing Home, the Nursing Staff will contact the Doctor and the Funeral Director you have chosen, who will then liaise with you.
Or if they are in the care of the coroner, this process can often take one week or more. Contact us and we will liaise with the coroner to discuss the most appropriate time of transfer.
We will arrange the transfer of the deceased from the place of death to our mortuary followed by the cremation in a private crematorium and the returning of the ashes. We take care of everything, so that you can focus on what's important.
Full payment must be made prior to the cremation taking place. No fees are charged for credit card (Visa/Mastercard) or payments via cash or cheque.
What happens once the cremation takes place - we will call you to advise that the ashes are ready and deliver them to you. They will be in our standard and secure plastic cremation urn.
If you would like to look at other urn options - we recommend Funeral Products Australia. We can place orders on your behalf and transfer the ashes for you.
