The Cremation Choice

The decision of cremation verses burial is usually one of the few areas were peoples wishes are well known to their family members. As in all aspects of the funeral arrangements it is personal choice that dictates the final disposition of a deceased. Certain religions still do not allow cremation however in recent years many have relaxed their views towards cremation. In brief the following apply:


A person’s preference for cremation is usually well known by their family. Today at least 50% of all funeral services in New South Wales are cremations. Service can be held in either the crematorium chapel which are all well equipped and modern or at a church and then followed by cremation. At Perram and Timmins Funerals we can advise on all available crematoria and facilities available.

In addition to the standard documentation for a burial, an additional doctor’s certificated or Coroners Permits are required for cremation. More info . We will attend to theses as part of our funeral planning process.

While cremation is generally considered to be a cheaper option as opposed to burial, the final cost may be much closer when memorialisation at a crematorium is added. This needs to be investigated prior to a final decision being made.
