No Funeral


Losing a loved one can be an extremely difficult time so adding additional financial costs in a period of grief can cause stress and anxiety. Direct Cremations offers budget cremation services that are affordable and furthermore, we offer exceptional service in your time of need.

As a family owned and operated business, two sisters Ellese and Sheree Templeton established Direct Cremations to offer a cost-effective cremation service for those who have lost someone special and choose an unattended direct cremation over a traditional service. We believe in “Doing It Your Way!” An unattended Direct Cremation may be what your loved one wants; this is the simplest service a person can have. No Fuss!

Losing a loved one is hard and particularly if this person passes away suddenly or is a significant provider for the family so the last thing you need is to get into debt over holding a traditional funeral service and burial. Direct Cremations Melbourne arrange the simplest cremation service. You can rest easy knowing that we will care for your loved one’s cremation, giving you time to arrange a memorial service if you wish. We are here to help.

Funeral costs and burials can become expensive, when you need to include things like; venue hire, celebrant fees, catering and coffin and the burial itself, while budget cremations are efficient and affordable. Direct Cremations offers no funeral, direct cremations and a package that suits. Available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week for personal and professional care. You can call us day or night and we will arrange to transfer your loved one into our care.

Our package includes basic mortuary care, a basic MDF coffin, transport of your loved one to the crematorium and the cremation fee. Furthermore, we collect the medical certificate, register the death certificate with Births, Deaths and Marriages (BDM) and complete the medical certification and death certificate.

We offer cremation services at Springvale Botanical Cemetery and Bunurong Memorial Park inclusive in the package fee of one thousand, nine hundred and eighty dollars. Once the cremation has been booked and confirmed, we will inform your family as you may like to light a candle at that time or play your loved one’s favourite song.

There are additional costs involved should you choose for the cremation to take place at Lilydale, Fawkner or Altona Memorial Parks. There are costs for weekend and public holidays as well as one hundred and ninety-five dollars for a larger coffin if needed. All arrangements are made via phone and email but if you prefer to meet with one of our Funeral Consultants in person, the cost is one hundred and ninety-five dollars.


No Funeral

A memorial service can be held at a later date, you may choose to hold a celebration of life with close family and friends or a big party at your local pub. You may like to have your loved ones ashes present at the memorial service or photos and memorabilia is something you prefer. “Do It You Way!” Who says it needs to be traditional, you can host a funeral in your own home or a special place of your loved one? We can certainly assist you in arranging a personalised goodbye or of course you can arrange this yourself. Displaying photos of memories, artwork or trophies is just one way to remember and reflect. Planting a garden or a rose in honour of your loved one is another way to celebrate their life and keep their memory close.

Direct Cremations can offer advice and suggestions not only on personalising your loved one’s goodbye but also the resting place of their ashes. We have an extensive urn brochure that has traditional urns, scattering tubes, eco water urns, jewellery, beads, pendants, candles, wrist bands and many more options including personalised urns.

As a cremation only company, Direct Cremations offers a personalised service tailored to your needs and in your time of need, we will care for you and your loved one with respect and kindness. We conduct ourselves with professionalism and integrity and value our clientele giving all we have to go above and beyond to assist you.
