Cremation only (without a service) may seem unreasonable for a lot of individuals, an increasing interest in Australia is to have a direct cremation with a post-cremation service a number of days later. Lower costs gives family, friends and those closest a chance to grieve together and farewell their loved one.
Deciding on a corporate or family-owned funeral home is a personal decision. Company operated funeral directors are often able to charge a premium. Privately-owned funeral homes may be more flexible in their service, but are often better suited to the local needs of the Australian city they serve. We hope this link guide has been useful for you.
