Costs, payment terms
Although the majority of funerals take place within a 20 mile radius of our offices, we regularly conduct funerals throughout Victoria and are highly experienced in the transfer of the deceased to and from abroad.
We are experienced and practised in arranging funeral services for all religions and beliefs and aim to provide each of our clients with a respectful and personalised service.
We aim to offer a fair and highly competitive funeral pricing structure.
Funeral costs consist of the Funeral Director Fees and those disbursement fees paid on your behalf such as church, cemetery or doctors fees. All of our funeral charges are drawn from a menu style price list with charges for each item or funeral service as requested. The disbursement fees are common to all funeral directors. Our cremation charges start from $2400 and for a burial there are no fixed prices due to the variation of the cemetery fees. Our coffin prices are as shown in the relevant section and all charges are itemised on a written estimate during the process of making the funeral arrangements.
We require a deposit at the time of booking and the balance is invoiced the week after the funeral date. Payment can be by cheque or credit / debit card..
