Funeral Costs

Practical advice on funeral costs in Brisbane

Funeral Costs

Below we’ve listed the funeral services we offer in greater detail, along with the accompanying funeral costs. During the funeral arrangement, we itemise each cost so you know exactly what you’re paying. This allows you to adjust the funeral service to suit your budget. Please call us to obtain the individual costs of each of these listed options.

On a fully conducted funeral service, we offer a FREE transfer of the deceased into our care from your home, a hospital, or a nursing facility, 24 hours a day, any day of the year. This is available in the Brisbane, Logan, Beaudesert, and Ipswich areas, and is included as a part of our professional fees. 

Although these are the main areas we cover, we will offer assistance to you and your family for a funeral service held anywhere we can drive to and from in one day.

We believe funeral packages can restrict your choice, so we don’t put forward an overall cost for each funeral. Rather, we personalise each funeral service based on your requirements and adjust the price accordingly. What you do should be your choice.

If you’re inquiring with other funeral homes, it is wise to check regarding all these prices, as transfer fees alone can be as high as $400. We are usually middle of the range in funeral costs compared to other funeral homes. The cheaper ones often outsource their work in order to reduce overheads, while the more expensive ones just seem overpriced. We believe we offer value for money, so call us, and judge for yourself.

Be aware that the low cost may also be the entry cost and extras such as mortuary care, viewing, dressing and storage fees will be applied. This in most cases this increases the professional fees above ours.
