Funeral costs Cairns

 

 
Straight Cremation Funerals respectfully understands that a person's passing is a difficult time for loved ones. Our professional, quality services allow you to time to grieve, while we look after all the details, from preparation of legal documents and booking the crematorium to delivering the ashes either locally or by registered mail.
 
Our caring, dignified funeral services are priced to accommodate all budgets. Our low fees are aimed at both customers who want a straight forward, simple cremation and customers hoping to relieve the financial stress of paying for funeral services when a loved one passes.
 
 
 

Straight Cremation

 
A straight cremation has no attendance or funeral service of any kind. After the arrangement paperwork has been completed, the cremation is carried out and the ashes are returned to the next of kin. This is suitable for people who prefer to organise their own private memorial or ceremony to scatter the ashes.
