Human beings are hardwired to plan for our future. We plan for marriage, the future of our children and every other major event in our lives. Therefore, it makes sense that some people want to make preparations for their last rite before they pass away.
Preplanning your funeral makes sense. Not only do prepaid funerals ease a lot of stress for your family but it also gives you the freedom to plan out how you want things to go during your funeral, even after you have passed away.
Losing a loved one is really tough. But the situation can become even more troublesome if you can’t afford a funeral. Below we’ll explain what happens when a family can’t afford a funeral.
There is no way to sugarcoat this: funerals in Australia are not on the cheap side. Although there are no set fees for funerals, the total funeral costs of a traditional burial on average can range from $7000 to $15000 while a cremation can cost anywhere between $3000 and $7000. These figures can go even higher, depending on your local cemetery fees and regulations.
Losing a loved one can not only be a genuinely emotional affair but it comes with some financial responsibilities. This leaves many wondering just how much does a funeral cost in Australia?
One of the most common questions prospective clients in the Whitsunday area ask us is how much their funeral will cost. Unfortunately, there is not one answer to this as the cost of a funeral all depends on how simple or extravagant you want the event to be.
