We’re With You Every Step of The Way

Cremation is cheaper than burial and one of the reasons more than 70% as there preferred disposition option.  Choosing cremation is also more environmentally friendly than most burials. There are also many ways to memorialise the ashes of a cremated loved one. We have a range of options available in our online shop.

Caskets & Coffins

The price of a casket or coffin is based on a few options. The type of materials used in its construction, the style, finishes, embellishments and level of craftmanship. We partner with Australian manufacturers enabling us to support local jobs. View our range.


We provide burial interment options at most public cemeteries and some private cemeteries. The pricing of a burial is usually broken into the plot fee, the interment fee, & maintenance. When choosing burial you also need to give thought to a headstone, plaque or some other memorial marker. Each cemetery trustees will have guidelines with what can be done.


We can perform funerals and life celebration ceremonies at just about any location. Some of these include your church, one of our chapels, community hall, a park, the graveside, home or farm, and even on a cruise boat. Speak to our funeral consultants and we will try to make it happen


We have a range of final transport options available including a traditional hearse, a motorcycle hearse, horse drawn hearse, and can use other vehicles to carry the casket or coffin to the funeral. These options are just one way of making the funeral reflective of the life.
