Burial and Cremation Information

Funerals can seem like a complicated affair, and there is a lot to know about the differences between a burial and a cremation. The type of service you choose will impact on the process as well as on what kind of memorial options will be available. We've provided some information about what to expect from each step of the burial or cremation process, as well as information about scattering ashes.

The Burial Process

Burial is a time-honoured method of committing a loved one’s remains. Today, burials must comply with relevant state, federal and local regulations to ensure they are performed in the interests of public health and to community expectations. Each burial requires a Burial Confirmation Form, which your funeral director will complete for you, or assist you to complete. 

In this section we also talk about what goes on during each step of the process before, during and after a burial service. Learn more.

The Cremation Process

Cremation is an ancient death ritual and a modern alternative to a burial. Cremation is the preferred choice for some religions and is also considered to have less of an impact on the environment than a burial.

While most people understand the basic concept of a cremation, the modern cremation process is regulated and detailed with set steps to follow. In Australia, cremations take place at a crematorium. Any flowers or items that may interfere with the process are removed and staff ensure the correct procedures are followed. Learn more.

Scattering Ashes

Scattering the ashes of a loved one has become very popular in Australia. However, choosing the right location is important as a lasting memory in the future. Very often people choose to scatter ashes in a location that was special to their loved one, but over time such places may change or even be built upon, changing the location and with it the memory.

Creating a memorial in a special place helps keep the memory alive beyond the funeral service. Memorials give families and friends a tangible source of comfort, and are an everlasting place to come and remember your loved one. In a memorial park, ashes can be placed without fear of the location changing. Download (.pdf)
