When a loved one passes on, we are left to make some hard decisions regarding their legacy and last rites. A common and respectful way to say goodbye is to hold a burial service.
A burial is a funeral option where the deceased is placed into the ground as their final resting place. The burial service can be a part of the funeral service or a separate ceremony held at the cemetery.
Although there is a growing demand for cremation services in Australian metropolitan areas, many people still opt for traditional burials as a satisfying way of saying goodbye. It provides a tangible experience for loved ones and future generations to be able to visit a grave in a cemetery.
What You Need to Know About a Burial Service
Before you can begin arranging a burial service, it is important to complete and submit all the necessary paperwork and obtain a death certificate. Depending on the cemetery you choose, you may also be asked to fill a burial plot application form.
The body will need to be prepared and transported to the cemetery but we will reassuringly talk you through all that is required when you contact us.
