Planning a Funeral
Time is short and emotions are high. Decisions must be made quickly and your family may not know what you want -
Deciding on burial or cremation
Deciding on an open or closed coffin or casket
Selecting a coffin or casket
Deciding whether you require a service to be held - If so, when and where the service will be held
Organising to have the involvement of a specific organisation or club in the service, if required
Selecting special readings, poems, music selections, or photo tributes to be part of the service.
Choosing clothing for the deceased to be dressed in
Organising if there will be refreshments following the service
Let us Help and Guide you.
We Suggest you follow these five steps.
Step 1 -
Once your loved one has passed, take the time to say your goodbyes. Phone (03) 8689 0062 and our consultant - usually a lady - will give you a call to organise transfers. From here, a time will be organised for her to come and visit you. She will listen to your wishes, explain the process and can make any immediate arrangements that are needed.
Step 2 -
Together, we can plan a suitable funeral, bearing in mind religious or other wishes.
Step 3 -
Together, we will set a budget for the whole process. Eternity provides a dignified funeral as you would expect - but usually at around half the cost of the big funeral directors.
Step 4 -
Once you approve, we will take care of the arrangements in line with your wishes, and you can be secure that there will be no hidden costs.
Step 5 -
The funeral will be held as you wish. We provide a smooth, compassionate service and you will always be in safe hands.
