Types Of Funeral Services

When arranging a funeral service, one the main decisions you’ll make is whether to have a burial or a cremation. A burial funeral service costs about the same as a cremation service does. However, the total cost of a burial funeral will be much higher than of a cremation because you also need to buy a burial plot from the cemetery, which costs over $10000 in Northern Sydney (much cheaper on the Central Coast at about $3500).A cremation without any ceremony (also known as an unattended cremation or a direct cremation) is the cheapest funeral option. The ashes of your loved one will be given to you, and you can arrange to have a private memorial service at a later date.

Burial Funerals

About 40% of funerals are traditional burial funerals, and some religions still require burial instead of cremation. There are two types of burial services: The first is a service in a church, chapel or other place, which is followed by a short service at the graveside; the second type consists of only a longer graveside service.
