Affordable Direct Cremation Services in Australia
No service - all care cremation
Otherwise known as a Direct Cremation, this is a wonderful option for families who would rather take time now in order to create memories later.
Sometimes families are undecided, the rush of time passing after a loved ones death can be overwhelming, and the days too short to plan an appropriate funeral. Sometimes creating a memorial event later means other family can attend that may not have been able to at shorter notice.
Other people may need quiet and calm away from the flurry of funeral planning in their early grief. Whatever the reason, we are committed to meeting each family’s unique needs, whatever they are.
At Sacred Earth Funerals, we understand that planning a traditional funeral service can be overwhelming, especially during times of grief. That’s why we offer affordable and caring alternatives to traditional funerals, including our no-service cremation options, also known as Direct Cremation.
We provide compassionate and respectful direct cremation services that allow you to take the time you need now, with the option to create meaningful memories later. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explain what our Direct Cremation services entail, our cremation prices, and why it might be the right choice for you.
What Is Direct Cremation?
Direct Cremation, or “no service cremation,” is a simple and streamlined end-of-life service that bypasses traditional funeral ceremonies. It’s an excellent choice for families who prefer a more cost-effective and efficient way to handle their loved one’s final arrangements. With Direct Cremation, we take your deceased loved one into our care, provide the necessary preparations, and arrange for cremation without the need for a traditional funeral service.
Why Choose Direct Cremation Services?
No Service Cremation Options
Direct Cremation offers families various options and benefits:
1. Time and Flexibility
Sometimes, families find themselves undecided about the best way to memorialise their loved one. The rush of time passing after a death can be overwhelming, and planning a funeral on short notice can be challenging. Direct Cremation allows you the flexibility to create a memorial event later when all family members and friends can attend, reducing the stress during the early days of grief.
2. Quiet and Calm
The grieving process is unique for each individual. Some people may prefer a quiet and calm environment away from the flurry of funeral planning. Direct Cremation provides the space and time needed for reflection and healing.
