Low Cost Funerals Service in Melbourne

We often come across the question of “what is a cheap funeral?”. There are many definitions depending on the type of funeral that is being sought. For example, a cheap cremation would be significantly lower in cost than what a cheap burial would be. So the first question to ask is am I looking for a cremation service, or do I require a burial service. Once this has been established, you can then take a look at what inclusions you require. Do you need a service at all? If not, you would be seeking a no service funeral. No service funerals, also known as a direct cremation is the single most affordable funeral that is offered by funeral directors

What is considered cheap?

Whether you’re starting your own end-of-life planning or you’re helping with a family member’s funeral, there are ways to keep costs low. The focus of any funeral is to honor and respect the person who died. This doesn’t need an extravagant budget. 

First, don't be afraid to shop around. Depending on your location, there might be several funeral home options near you or your loved one. 

By law, funeral homes must itemize their charges. It’s acceptable to call and ask for this general price list. From there, you can compare all of the costs accurately and easily.

We’re available 24 Hours a Day, 7 days a week. Feel free to call us anytime for whatever reason. Rest assured, we’re here for you and your family.

Opt for cremation Don’t fall for fancy caskets

Opt for cremation

In general, cremation is more affordable compared to burial. The number of cremations is growing each year, and this is one of the main reasons why. 

Choosing cremation also allows the family to store the ashes in an urn, and this can be a powerful memento. 

Don’t fall for fancy caskets

While an extravagant, fancy casket might look stunning, it ends up in the same place. The right funeral director is there to help you find the casket that fits your budget. This might mean choosing a simpler one. Either way, it serves the same function. 

Beware of upselling in funeral homes. If the funeral director pressures you towards an expensive casket or another costly option, it’s okay to say no. 


Some people prefer to obtain information on services, options and prices before engaging a Melbourne funeral director.
