Types of Funeral Services

The kind of service you choose is only limited by your imagination. While some people prefer a more traditional or religious service others are looking for different ways to say goodbye. Whatever your preference we will work with you to deliver a service that reflects the personality and beliefs of the person who has past.

See below the range of service options you could choose.

Funeral types

Traditional Service

The funeral ceremony is held in a Church or Chapel and is followed by a cremation or burial at a cemetery of your choice. Traditional services often include a viewing before the ceremony; this can be arranged immediately before the ceremony or in the days leading up to it. The service is conducted by the Clergy of the Church or by a Funeral Celebrant.

Graveside services

This is a burial service held at the graveside in a cemetery of your choice. The service is conducted in its entirety at the Graveside. A variation to this is to have the Burial prior to the Funeral Service or Memorial Service. This suits those who wish for a Private Committal.

Cremation

A ceremony is usually held in a church or chapel and then Grace Funerals will continue to the Crematorium for a private cremation. The Ashes are collected and returned to the family at a later time.

Memorial Service

This type of service is becoming more popular. It is a full service that celebrates the life of your loved one. There is no time limit as to when a Memorial Service is held as the Burial or Cremation has often been held in advance.

No ceremony (Lower Cost Option)

Circumstances determine the appropriateness of this. Grace Funerals arrange for the burial or cremation to take place.

Highly recommend Grace Funerals, they were very caring, supportive and knowledgeable. The day went perfectly and we couldn’t be happier with their service.

Consultant, Rose, and celebrant, Tom, were wonderful in their approach and in their attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I could not be happier with how they assisted us at this very difficult time.

I can’t recommend Grace Funerals highly enough. Tom Dooley and his team looked after the funerals for both my mother and father and made everything easy. Tom is very professional and has exactly the right words to say in the service. Thanks Tom!!

Thank you Grace funerals for helping our family through a difficult time. You were always very accommodating to our needs and with your help we were able to give our dad the best send off we could have hoped for. Would definitely recommend your services to others.

Everyone I dealt with at Grace, was friendly and approachable. Costs were upfront so I knew what to expect and the day of my Mothers service (it was a large service that I wasn’t expecting) but they were friendly and warm, keeping everything running smoothly. Thank you.

My family and I were more than happy with all the arrangements every thing fell into place perfectly. I have received feed back from family and friends that it was the best funeral that they have attended.

Grace Funerals were excellent in the manner in which they conducted a difficult process for us.Tom and Asha were relaxed and caring and carried out the duties in a very professional way. We could not fault them and would not hesitate to recommend them as funeral directors.

Grace Funerals were extremely professional, caring, respectful and highly efficient in their services. Nothing was too much for them. They provided dad with a beautiful service and treated him and us with nothing but the upmost respect and dignity. Would highly recommend them to anyone requiring their services in the region.

“Your professionalism, graciousness, love, comfort & support show to us at this most difficult time of losing our beautiful mother will never be forgotten. Every detail was handled with perfection, everything was very well co-ordinated in a very tight timeframe.”

Grace Funerals were professional, compassionate and showed immense understanding throughout the whole process of my grandmother’s funeral. They came highly recommended by our Bishop and entire church community – and know I know why! Their service was outstanding and they showed show much attention to detail. Asha went out of her way to make sure the funeral was as beautiful and memorable as our nan while also carefully considering our budget and highly unique needs. The facilities had a wonderful ambiance and the day felt intimate, warm and welcoming. We had several extenuating circumstances that could have proven extremely difficult and stressful but Asha and her team really took us by the hand and handled everything for us. We can’t thank you enough. I would never go anywhere else now! I can’t recommend you highly enough!

The team at Grace funerals helped us through the difficult time with the sudden death of our son. They were patient, caring and professional. The fee was reasonable. A great support helping us through this journey.
