What is a Cremation?

Over 70% of Australians choose to be cremated. This could be for a number of reasons; religious, environmental or because cremations are usually more affordable.

A cremation is one of the most common funeral methods in Australia. This is done by placing the deceased inside a purpose built cremator for 1-2 hours and exposing it to high temperatures. The ashes are then collected in an urn and given to the family.

Before a cremation occurs, it is common practice for most families to hold some form of funeral service. After the funeral service, the deceased is transported in their coffin to a crematorium.

Once all paperwork and checks have been completed, the coffin is inserted into the cremator. Once the process is complete the ashes are cooled and collected. The ashes are then ready to be returned to the family of the deceased.
