There are a number of different options for a Burial Service.
Church Service then a Burial
We have experience arranging funerals for the many religious and cultural traditions that are a part of our community. We work closely with the church to ensure the funeral reflects your traditions and beliefs. The coffin is brought to the Church in the hearse and our staff are there to assist.
After the church service, family and friends follow the hearse to the cemetery. Or, after the service, only the immediate family go to the cemetery for a private burial.
Cemetery Chapel then a Burial
Many cemeteries have chapels that can be used for a funeral service. Cemetery chapels have all the necessary facilities for a funeral service, including audio visual equipment, parking and function rooms.
After the service, family and friends follow the hearse only a short distance to the graveside. After the burial there is the option for a gathering at a function room.
A Graveside Service
For a Graveside Service the hearse and staff meet the family and friends at the cemetery office. Everyone then follows the hearse to the graveside. We can arrange for chairs and a canopy to be set up at the graveside. We can also arrange for a sound system with microphone and music. The coffin is placed over the grave, a service is held at the graveside followed by the burial.
A Church Service followed by an interment in a Crypt or Vault
Placing a coffin in a crypt or vault is a choice of many families. We have the experience, facilities and expertise to arrange for an above ground interment.
We will work with you to arrange the opening of a family crypt or vault. Or we can organise for you to see the range of crypts and vaults that are available for purchase.
