At Simply Affordable Funerals & Cremations, we understand planning funeral service can be incredibly difficult, so our team is here to guide you through it, and deliver a touching ceremony.All throughout Cairns and the greater Tablelands region, we’re known for highly personalised and meaningful funerals, delivered with professionalism and genuine care.
On a budget? Not a problem. Just sit down and speak to our experienced and understanding directors. We are generally around half the cost of the bigger funeral homes, while still creating a beautiful send off for your loved one.
We take pride in being a small business, that works with you on a personal level to help reduce your stress about planning such an important event during an emotional time. There is no describing the difficulties of losing a loved one, but there are important preparations that need to be made before a funeral can take place.
Feel free to call Simply Affordable Funerals & Cremations for incredibly sympathetic and patient advice on these matters. Depending on the circumstances of the departure you may need to contact either medical or police authorities. If there are no set funeral arrangements already laid out, you may also want to speak to your family, and friends of the departed to hear their wishes about the type of ceremony they feel is appropriate. After police and medical proceedings are completed, now is the time to contact your local funeral home.
Our experienced team can then assist you with the following steps:
- Liaise with the coroner or medical institution to collect the body
- Obtaining a Medical
- Certificate for Cause of Death
- Assessing any funeral or life insurance
- Checking if the departed left any specific requests or plans for the ceremony i.e. if they wished to be buried or cremated
- Deciding on a budget for the service
- Choosing a casket or coffin
- Choosing a grave plot & headstone
- Other arrangements for the ceremony
- Organising a death notice in local publications
- Planning the wake
Remember, we are here to make this process as bearable as possible, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions you need to along the way.
