Melbourne's Most Affordable Direct Cremation Service - No Hidden Costs
Unattended or direct cremation is the simplest and most affordable form of disposition. We collect your loved from the place of death and bring them into our care, no viewing or family services are held. Some families choose to have a memorial service or gathering at a later time. Once all documentation is completed your loved one is conveyed to the crematorium for direct cremation.
After the cremation, you can choose to have the cremated remains returned to you or scattered by the crematorium.
