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.
