Funeral Cost Information

Funeral Cost Information (PDF)

The information in this PDF is intended to provide you with an approximate price guide to a range of service combinations that are frequently chosen. These service combination examples include cremation fees.  If burial is preferred please allow an additional $2000 approx. The estimates cover 'transfer of your loved one into our care' within the Toowoomba region. Additional travel expenses may be incurred outside this region.

So what things influence cost?

Some of the things that determine cost are: 

  • Whether the funeral involves a cremation or a burial
  • If it is a burial, whether a plot has been pre purchased
  • Sometimes additional travel is required
  • The choice of coffin in terms of materials used and the extent of workmanship
  • Whether qualified mortuary personnel are involved in the care of the deceased
  • The extent of floral tributes
  • The length, style and number of death and funeral notices placed in newspapers
  • The extent of multi media services required eg. photographic tribute and service sheets
  • Charges made by celebrants, clergy or organists
  • The extent of catering for post-funeral gatherings
  • The quality of Funeral Director facilities including things like hearses, mortuary, chapel and viewing facilities
  • The level of Funeral Director service offered
  • Services held on a weekend or public holiday
  • Remember - a funeral is a combination of many services - each with an influence on cost. A funeral that is more complex to plan and carry out will cost more than one that is simple in structure.

Would you like an accurate cost proposal?

The very best way to make an informed decision about the combination of services that is right for you, and obtain an accurate cost proposal, is by meeting with a Funeral Director who will outline the options and explain the detail without obligation.
