There is no viewing or funeral ceremony before the cremation process with a direct cremation. Instead, the body is taken to the funeral home or crematory for only a short time to obtain the death certificate and cremation permission and for the next of kin to sign the cremation authorisation form.

It has nothing to do with embalming or restorative art. Instead, the deceased’s ashes are collected and returned to the family or scattered in a memorial garden.

Why do residents in Melbourne prefer direct cremation?

The truth is that many people choose cremation for a host of reasons.

Some of these reasons include:

  • Direct cremation appeals to many people because of its simplicity and flexibility.
  • It can help free up time to create a meaningful tribute to a loved one’s life while allowing everyone to make the necessary travel arrangements.
  • Religious convictions, environmental concerns, space availability at your preferred cemetery, and the desire to have your loved one close at all times.
  • Substantial economic advantages to direct cremation.

How to choose a direct cremation service in Melbourne?

We’ve put up a checklist to assist you at a time when you most need it — here is our top advice on how to choose a cremation provider.

  • Seek out referrals: Seek out recommendations for cremation or other funeral services from family, friends, and neighbours.
  • Check out online reviews: Internet reviews help you to find out what customers have to say about a facility’s level of service.
  • Reach out and ask questions: Funeral homes and cremation service providers should welcome your inquiries and want you and your family to feel at ease. A smart initial step is to call the providers and ask them questions about their processes and voice any concerns you have.
  • Assess the cost: It would be best to inquire what the given price includes and excludes. Unfortunately, what appears to be a better deal online is frequently a lie to attract people. So, before you sign the contract, ensure that you understand what is included in the fee.
