There are two burial options - either a Direct Burial with no service and no attendance (often followed by a memorial service at a later date), or the more traditional Burial with a Funeral Service.
A Burial with Funeral Service starts from $7,000, excluding burial plot opening and closing fees.
These prices don’t include the cost of the burial plot itself.
Costs of burial plots in Sydney range from $8,500 to $45,000.
Burial plots are often purchased ahead of time, to secure preferred locations at todays' prices. This provides peace of mind, knowing that family members final resting place will be together.
Some families like to engage the cemetery directly, or we can manage this for you.
You may also consider a headstone - these are generally arranged through the cemetery itself or with a local stonemason, some months after the burial.
The choice is yours whether to conduct the entire service at graveside, or your preference may be to hold the service at a different place, either before or after the burial itself. Often there will be a smaller group of mourners in attendance at the burial as it is a very intimate time for most people.
Natural Burial grounds are becoming popular all over the world - our local natural burial ground is the beautiful grounds of Frenchs Forest Bushland Cemetery.
Natural burial offers a simple and sustainable resting place with minimal disturbance to the bushland environment. To ensure that the habitat is kept natural, there are no formal headstones or monuments and the use of herbicides and pesticides is avoided to create a self-sustaining eco-system.
Many cemeteries offer community events throughout the year at which the broader community can gather to commemorate loved ones – these may include monthly masses, the blessing of graves on All Souls Day or perhaps a special service at Christmas time.
