The really little service - Private Cremation and Mini Services

No Service Cremation - What does this mean?

This is also known as a Private Cremation, Direct Cremation or Non Attended Cremation.


The cost of a no service or no attendance cremation is a fraction of a a full service cremation. No Service Cremation is when the family of the deceased have chosen not to hold a funeral. We arrange everything from the transfer to the documentation required and book the cremation to take place.

Sometime family and friends hold a memorial service some time after the cremation has taken place, with or without the urn being present.. No Service Cremation is also a dignified and cost effective way of caring for the deceased.

 

We offer a simple upgrade to the No Service option by holding a simple eulogy or mini funeral service.  A viewing can be held, family and friends can say a few words and then go off to hold a wake afterwards.  The coffin is upgraded for this service and we provide a floral display to sit on the coffin.

The funeral process

When someone dies it can be a difficult time.  We are available 24 hours to help bring your loved one into our care and offer advice.

Once the necessary clearances have been obtained we will collect the person who has died and look after them in our mortuary. We do not undertake any invasive procedures such as embalming.

The next step in arranging a funeral is preparing the required paperwork during the funeral arrangement. The information required relates to the Next of Kin, family information for Births Deaths and Marriages and required cemetery information. We take care of all the required medical certificates or liase with the State Coroner.
