Private Cremation

A sensitive environmentally friendlier private cremation (or direct cremation) is a simple funeral for people who don't want a funeral service.  It is the simplest form of cremation. 

Our private cremation has two main options

  1. The private direct cremation and
  2. The private direct cremation with a simple committal.


A Private Direct Cremation is without a formal ceremony. A direct cremation removes the formality of a traditional funeral service and procession, ideal for those that do not want a fuss when they are gone or would prefer a memorial service at a later time separate from the cremation.

A Private Direct Cremation with a committal service is a respectful way to say goodbye.  A few words are spoken and a better coffin with flowers are provided but it is not as formal as a full service.

Our Private Direct Cremation costs from just $1,850 and includes doctor's medical certificate costs and the cremation permit and costs - something not all providers include - provision of a simple coffin and the cremated remains available within 48 hours of the cremation taking place.
