Our own Funeral Celebrant or family’s choice of clergy can lead the funeral. A funeral service can be conducted at venues other than a church or chapel. Eg. Outdoors, private homes, clubs etc. Catering can be arranged. We are happy to discuss any other needs a family may require that are not included in the above. Most funerals can be arranged to suit family financial circumstances. All payments are COD by cheque, cash or bank card, or financed to approved clients. PRE-ARRANGED FUNERAL CONTRACTS can be completed at any time with a client. Their wishes are documented and filed with the funeral director and himself/herself, or a family member. Upon death, the funeral is arranged as per the contract. The cost of the funeral is subject to price rise from the time the contract is signed. A PRE-PAID FUNERAL CONTRACT can also be arranged on a monthly repayment scheme from as little as $25 per month. However, with this system, if death occurs before the contract has been paid in full, the family will incur the cost of the balance of the contract, plus any price increases since the contract was signed.
