Direct Cremations

with the Sydney Funeral Co.  

At Sydney Funerals Co. we believe in open and transparent pricing.  We also believe that families shouldn't be over-charged for the basic service of a Direct Cremation - No Service No Attendance No Viewings.

What is a Direct Cremation?

A Direct Cremation is where there is no service no attendance and no viewings.

So what actually happens?

Once your loved one has passed, they will then come into our gentle care from their place of death.

We then gather all the documentation from the coroners or hospital.

You will then sign some documents to authorise the cremation.

Cremation will then take place within 24-48hours of paperwork all being completed.

The ashes will then be ready to collect 48hours following cremation.

With a direct cremation, there isn't many options to choose from, but you can select anything you wish for of course.


Step 5

Once you have entered everything, you will receive a call from our team just to confirm everything is in order and to ensure you haven't missed anything.  We will explain the next steps and what will happen from here.  You can call us 24hours a day to ask as many questions, and also if you wish to meet up, we are more than happy to.

The Cremation

The cremation will most likely take place 24-48hours after everything has been signed off, and all the paperwork is in order.

We will advise you of a estimated time for cremation to allow you to stop, reflect, light a candle, raise a glass for your love one.
