Simple Essential Services

We developed the Essential Service package in early 2017 as a genuine lower cost chapel or church package. We found many simply didn't want to spend a huge amount on funerals and just wanted something nice, simple, dignified and affordable.

Why an Essential Service?

This style of service is most appropriate when:

  • A person has requested that there is a more traditional funeral gathering with an eulogy but at lower cost
  • Car parking is not a problem with Enfield, West Hindmarsh and Centennial Park services as both have ample parking adjacent to the chapels.
  • Set in a good locations on the northern, western and southern side of the city of Adelaide.
  • The need to keep funeral costs low but still have a nice service.

Funeral Service Packages

Funeral service packages held in the following chapels :

  • Mawson or Florey Chapels - Centennial Park
  • Acacia or Folland Chapels - Enfield Memorial Park
  • West Hindmarsh Chapels

All services shown are held Monday to Friday in the nominated chapel/location as standard.

Additional Costs

All services are based on transfer from an Adelaide Public Hospital or the State Coroner.
