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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
