About cremation

Some things to consider about a cremation:

  • It can cost less than a burial, sometimes less than half.
  • The funeral service can be held at a crematorium chapel. There are many different capacities from 30-250+ and have lounge facilities attached.
  • The service may also take place in a church or another location before going to the crematorium for an unattended cremation.
  • There will be a strict time limit for the length of the service. This will vary depending on the crematorium
  • You will need to decide the final resting place of the ashes (also known as cremated remains).
  • You can keep the ashes in the plastic urn they come from the crematorium in, select a nicer urn, scatter or bury them.

In Australia, over 65% of the population choose cremation services. For some cultures and religions, it is their preferred option. For most, it is a cost-effective and practical alternative. Charges for a cremation include the use of the crematorium chapel for the funeral service and the cremation process - these costs are variable.

Most funerals held in a crematorium chapel last for 30-45 minutes, however if you require a longer service or are expecting a very large group of mourners, it is advisable to pay a little extra for extended use of the chapel, or we can discuss alternative chapels of venues suitable. We will arrange all of this on your behalf.

Most services are held at your preferred church, Enfield Memorial Park Acacia or Folland chapels or one of the three chapels at Centennial Park - Mawson, Florey and Heysen.

Usually, cremated remains are available within 48 hours of the service taking place.
