Our Fees

Whenever arranging a funeral it is important to remember that the Funeral Arranger is there to answer your questions regarding our fees and external disbursements. We provide a written estimate of your choices at the time of the arrangements so there are no unexpected costs. We have provided below some of our most popular funeral choices to outline our fees but we also can offer more choices and tailor something to suit your needs and budget. We also offer a highly professional and efficient repatriation service if required.

Professional Service Fee

Our Professional Service Fee covers the functions that need to be performed to operate as a funeral home. It not only covers the upkeep and provision of our vehicles, premises and utilities, it also covers our staff costs. This may include the work and time in preparing your loved one in our mortuary, our administrative staff that will attend to, and process, the relevant legal documents for statutory purposes (e.g. preparation of the Burial and Cremation Form, preparation and registration of the Record of Death with the Dept. of Births, Deaths and Marriages, etc.), it covers our time to arrange the funeral (e.g. liaising with the clergy or celebrant, florist, caterers, cemetery or crematorium agents, our advice on religious and ceremonial requirements in relation to viewings and other customs prior to, during and after the funeral, and insertion of published and online death and funeral notices, etc.). It also covers the provision of staff that will work on the day of the funeral service in the set-up prior, attendance during, and pack up after the funeral service.

Estate Fee

The Estate Fee is an administration charge involved in the management and collection of a funeral invoice. The Estate fee is deducted when the funeral invoice is paid in full prior to the service, or within 5 working days of the funeral service, as there is no ongoing work required for our Finance Team.
