Funeral Service Options
We take care to understand what you want and have the flexibility to customise our services to suit you and your family’s needs. Our funeral arranger will discuss and arrange any options with you.
Below is a sample of some additional services and options we provide:
A service in your home, a park, a hall or a sporting club.
A no-coffin burial at a picturesque ‘green’ cemetery.
No service funeral
We can arrange a cremation and return the remains or scatter the ashes on Port Phillip Bay. No attendance by family is required for this service. This is often done if a memorial service is held later, interstate or overseas.
One of our experienced funeral celebrants will conduct a beautiful chapel service in our chapel or one of the crematorium chapels. This can include an audio-visual presentation of your loved one’s life. Where the chapel has recording facilities, a video record of the service is available at no extra cost. Alternatively, a minister or priest can conduct a religious service in the chapel.
For burials, the entire service can occur at the graveside. Alternatively, there can be a chapel service followed by a graveside committal.
We can take the deceased to your church where the priest or minister will conduct a religious service. This can be followed by a cremation or graveside committal.
We are equipped to provide overseas repatriation when this may be required for cultural reasons
We offer several types of coffins, which are on display at our Oakleigh office. A basic coffin is included in our funeral service fee. We also offer more elaborate coffins for you to choose from for an extra cost.
Viewings and Dressing
Dressing and viewings of the deceased are possible and can be organised through our funeral arranger.
Press Notices, flowers, refreshments
We have a number of attractive ‘sustainable’ casket sheaves, which is included in our funeral service fee. Additional costs are involved for fresh flowers. A basic newspaper notice is included in our service fee. However, newspaper notices can be provided at an additional cost. These can be organised through our funeral arranger.
