A traditional setting for a funeral service which can take place either with the coffin placed at the front of the church or without the coffin present at all (often referred to as a memorial service).
The local crematorium has a well-appointed chapel, which can seat approximately 90 people. Although this is a non-denominational setting, a minister of religion can still lead any service, or if you prefer, a non-denominational celebrant can be used. It could even be a case where the family actually conducts the service themselves.
This service is, as suggested, held at the graveside and is usually shorter in duration than a traditional service. This form of service can be run by either a minister of religion or a celebrant. We provide chairs, sound systems and more to make this outdoor setting a more comfortable experience in which to bid farewell to your loved one.
Whilst the above examples are the common types of services, there is no reason why alternative locations such as the local beach or golf course cannot be used. Obviously there may be some logistical constraints connected with any location. We will try our hardest to accommodate your requests.
NO SERVICE – NO ATTENDANCE
This service is characterised by the fact that no one from the family attends either the burial or cremation. We deliver the body at a time suitable to us to either the crematorium or the cemetery.
