Cremation & Burial

Cremation & Burial

In Australia, when someone passes away, a burial or a cremation is usually performed.

During a burial the remains of a loved one, along with the coffin or casket, are memorialised in a grave, a crypt or a mausoleum. During a cremation the remains of a loved one, along with the coffin or casket, are turned into ash that is suitable for memorialisation.

Christian Funerals has assisted many families to create dignified and appropriate burials and cremations.

Cremation

A cremation takes place at a crematorium. It can occur after a funeral service has been held in a church or other venue. Many crematoriums offer an onsite chapel, or even a choice of chapels, that provide comfortable spaces, often equipped with audio-visual equipment for sharing images, music and movies with guests.

Many crematoriums also have function spaces where catered get-togethers can be held, all in the one place.

Burial

A burial takes place at a cemetery. It can occur after a funeral service has been held in a church or other venue, and, sometimes, a service is held at the graveside.

Across Perth, cemeteries provide grave tenure for 25 years which can then be renewed for a further 25 years. Most of Perth’s gravesites have capacity for three coffins to be interred.

Let one of our funeral directors know if you have special burial requirements, such as preferring a crypt or mausoleum burial.

If you wish to have a graveside ceremony we can provide chairs, a marquee and a P.A. system to make a difficult time easier.

We can assist you with all of the requirements for a cremation or a burial, such as taking care of all documentation and formalities, selecting a venue, assisting you with the grief you are experiencing, helping to arrange celebrants and information on your memorial options.
