Why choose a cremation service?

Cremation has become a popular option for funerals in the local area. Approximately 80% of Australians opt for cremations over a burial service. Cremation services have a number of practical advantages to burial services, including:

Cost-effective

Depending on where you choose to carry out your cremation service, it can be more affordable than purchasing a large burial plot or a casket. In fact, it can cost up to four times less than the price of a burial.

Environmentally friendly

Burial sites are becoming increasingly crowded every year, which means that the land can’t be used in the future. By choosing a cremation service, your loved one can either be buried in a smaller site or in a family plot.

Simpler service

If you don’t want to organise a complicated or traditional funeral service, you can choose to have a small memorial service at a peaceful location. Here, you can spread your loved one’s ashes at a location of your choice.
