The Specifics Of Cremations Sydney Services

Most people are unaware of the process followed in cremation, and feel hesitant to enquire. We at Heaven’s Own Funeral Service, provide all support to family members of the deceased, to go through the process. Here is some information about the cremations Sydney process.

  1. How Cremations Are Organised

There are two choices options during the cremation process. You can contact the crematorium in your locality for it, or go to a funeral home. When you approach the crematorium, you leave all the arrangements to them. Contacting the crematorium is easy as you can find their telephone number online and talk to them about your requirements. They transport the body to the crematorium; conduct the cremation and hand over the ashes to you.

If you want to make some additional arrangements, it is best to contact a funeral home. They arrange the wake, memorial service, burial and other related aspects as per your requirement. The funeral home provides all information about the process and other similar ceremonies, and professionals help you to plan it properly.

  1. Cremation Sydney Pricing

When you opt for cremation, it is good to know the costs involved. Cremation costs vary depending upon factors such as type of ceremony, location, and additional services. The costs range from $4000 for a basic cremation to even $ 15000 with added services. A basic cremation covers everything necessary for a full cremation. When you add other services like a casket, memorials, burials, etc. the costs tend to increase.

You will get a detailed estimate from the funeral home, once you discuss your requirements with them. The estimate depends upon what is included in the simple cremation process and additional services if any. A good funeral home will always customise their services to suit your budget and preferences.

  1. Cremation-Only Service Sydney

Many funeral homes arrange cremation-only services that come with no frills attached. A simple process is followed- this includes, transportation of the body to the crematorium, cleaning and preparing the body and finally the cremation. The ashes are placed in a simple urn and handed over to the family. This bare minimum package is exclusive of any other services like a memorial, wake, visitation, etc.

  1. Range Of Cremation Packages

Funeral homes offer cremation packages structured for cremations only. That is why they cover services such as transport, embalming, purchase of a casket, burial plot for ashes, memorial, and other services. The wide range of pre and post-cremation services focus on helping the grieving family to pass through their grief without worrying about the decision making related to the cremation process.

Our Gold Cremation Package includes transport, hygienic preparation of the body, coffin, consultation, floral arrangements, hearse, personalised memorial cards, thank you cards, and several other services.

Are Customized Funeral Services Always Costly?

Anyone that has had to bear the responsibility of organising a funeral for a loved one will know that it isn’t an inexpensive affair. Depending on the types of services you opt for, funerals can end up being quite heavy on the pocket. You have to choose a suitable casket which accounts for a large portion of the amount charged for a funeral service.

Also, you have to organise the flower arrangements, and several other things. This also means the expenses can add up pretty quickly. If you decide to take a standard package from a funeral home, they might have a fixed charge for it. However, these packages do not always suit the requirements of every family, as they may have specific requests.

Customised Funeral Services 

When it comes to customisation, many people wonder whether they would have to pay an arm and a leg for the different services they require. While it’s true that some funeral homes can have very steep pricing for customised funeral services, it isn’t the case with all establishments.

We at Heaven’s Own Funeral Service are a leading company in this industry. Not only do we provide specialised funeral services and customised solutions for clients, but you will also find that all of these services are very cost-effective.  We are known for our cheap funerals in Sydney.

We are committed to providing our clients with the best services, which is why our funeral director will have detailed discussions with you before offering different solutions. They will take the time to get a good understanding of your needs and your budget. The solutions they offer will always be provided with these aspects in view. Very few establishments in this industry, function in this manner. 

Why Choose Customisation?

There are several benefits to opting for customised funeral services such as:

  • As mentioned earlier, each family will have some specific needs and ideas while arranging a funeral service for a deceased family member. These services may not be included in the standard packages. When you are saying your final farewell to your loved one, you want everything to be just perfect, and that is what customisation allows.
  • Customisation also gives you the option to pick and choose the exact services you want depending on your budget. It gives you complete control over how much you end up spending on the funeral service.

How Are Cremations Sydney Organised?

Today, cremation has become the preferred option over burials for many people. The former is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to dispose of the body of the deceased. Many people that pre-plan their funeral opt for cremation rather than a burial.

We at Heaven’s Own Funeral Service provide customised cremation and burial options. Our funeral director makes sure that clients have a clear idea about what is involved in these services. Many people are curious about the process followed in cremations Sydney.  As mentioned, when clients ask us about a low-cost funeral option, we do recommend cremations as these are very cost-effective compared to a standard burial.

The Cremation Process

Here is some information that will help you understand what process we follow during a cremation:

  • One of the first things that you would need is all the paperwork and transfer papers. This has to be taken care of before the body is cremated. The crematorium would need all of the necessary documents & written permission from local authorities. The funeral home will preserve the body until the approval comes through and all the necessary forms have been obtained.
  • Preparing the body is the next step, and this would depend on two distinct aspects- whether the cremation is taking place right away or at a later date. No embalming is required if the cremation is to be carried out immediately. However, specific preparatory steps need to be followed, such as the removal of therapeutic devices or any digital devices that the decedent was wearing. These devices need to be removed as they can explode inside the cremation chamber if they are left on the body.
  • If the family has decided that the cremation has to be conducted at a later point, they might want an open casket service or even a wake. In this case, the body will be embalmed to make sure that it does not decompose quickly. The cremation can take place after the funeral service at a crematorium Sydney. 
  • Once the body preparation has been completed, it will be placed inside a wooden or cardboard coffin and will be moved into the cremation chamber. The process takes at least a few hours after which some skeletal remains are left behind. 
  • These remains would be allowed to cool after which they are placed in a cremulator which grinds them into a fine powder (ashes). Family members will be handed over the ashes, and they can decide whether they want to scatter or bury them. You also have the option of carrying the ashes to your home in an urn and placing them in a special spot.

The cremation process is completed on the day that you bring the body to the funeral home, and you also get to take the ashes the very same day.
