The cost of a funeral varies. Generally, the overall price depends on the requests made by the family, and the quality and style of items selected.
An estimate of funeral charges and disbursements will be provided to you by your Funeral Arranger once the family’s instructions have been given.
The matter of cost should be discussed openly and honestly with your Funeral Arranger. If you think you may have difficulty paying for the funeral, there are many options that your Funeral Arranger can discuss with you. For example, you may be eligible for benefits from various community services; the deceased may have made provisions in their Will; or you may be eligible to access Superannuation or financial assistance from Government agencies.
Your Funeral Arranger can provide you with the appropriate information and contact the relevant parties regarding your eligibility for assistance.
