The cost is always substantially more expensive than a cremation service, as a burial plot must be purchased.
A burial or graveside service generally takes place at a cemetery. Cemeteries are usually run by the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board or a Local Shire.There may also be a viewing of the body prior to the funeral service where your loved one is dressed and presented for family and friends to privately pay their respects and say their final goodbyes. Viewings are normal in many cultures and can be very helpful in coping with grief.
Certain religious denominations may also require a Rosary service which is generally conducted in a Church on the evening prior to the funeral service itself. We can arrange a Celebrant, Priest, Minister, Chaplin or Reverend depending on your individual needs.
A hearse will be provided and our funeral cars can be provided for family members to travel to and from the funeral service in privacy and comfort.The hearse, flowers, funeral notices, booklets, attendance cards, music, Celebrant, Priest, Minister and limousine transport can all be arranged at the family’s request. We are here to help in any way we can.
In fact, any special touches or considerations the family have, no matter how small they may seem,will always be incorporated into the funeral service where possible.
We provide burial services at the following cemeteries;
Fremantle, Guildford, Karrakatta, Midland, Pinnaroo, Rockingham
Please don’t hesitate to call Susie or one of our friendly staff members to help assist you day or night.
Dearest Susie, there are no words to truly express our sincere appreciation for all you did for our precious dad today.
To say we are heartbroken doesn’t even cover it. But the gentleness, compassion and genuine kindness you showed Tania, myself and our families was so comforting. You sent our darling dad off with dignity and love. For that, we are eternally grateful. We can’t thank you enough.
Jodie & Tania
Hi Susie – thank you for yesterday. Mum (most importantly) was really happy with the funeral service – as were the rest of the family. Susie you are a lovely lady funeral director. Also compliments for the streaming service. Both my son in Canada and my cousin in Sydney were very impressed with the quality of the camera work and the streaming itself.
Hi Susie, just a quick note of thanks on behalf of the family re: mums funeral service. The day went extremely well and your attention to detail and guidance throughout was fantastic. We appreciated your assistance very much. It was a very caring service. Thank you again.
