Essential Service by Natural

This service is a simple and gentle way to honour your loved one.

Typically used as a cremation service, where the practical and respectful elements are covered, without having to pay for things you might not need or want.

The Essential Service is offered in the Chapels at the cemeteries we collaborate with, and you will be guided and supported by our warm and thoughtful team. Designed for services up to 30 people attending.

A Civil Celebrant or Clergy will guide you through the ceremony and work with you to create an ideal send off to genuinely reflect the essence of the person who has passed.

Our experienced Funeral Planners will assist you to arrange this respectful farewell and you will be encouraged to select music to suit the person and their life well-lived.
