Having to arrange the funeral of a loved one is something that almost all of us will go through during our lifetime.

While it is never easy, it can be made much easier by seeking the help of professional Cairns Funeral Directors.

Simply Affordable Funerals & Cremations can explain to you exactly why you need our help, and what we can do to make these arrangements easier for you. 

Speaking to bereaved families

One of the most important roles of any funeral director in Australia is to communicate with the loved ones. At first, we may only offer you advice about how to handle arrangements for the funeral, but if you choose to become our client, we can guide you through the whole process from hospital transportation to choosing the type of funeral you want. 

Making legal arrangements

As something that is often overlooked when discussing funerals with your family, legal details are perhaps the most difficult part of any death.

These details will include obtaining a death certificate, needed to arrange the funeral, but you may also need other certificates, including a coroner’s certificate.

Managing the estate, including immediate financial needs, can be very distressing. 

Arranging the funeral

There will need to be a burial or cremation of your loved one, and this can be a very emotional part of dealing with a death.

Funeral directors will help you to make these arrangements, including dealing with funeral venues or cremation centres, managing floral tributes, handling celebrants, and organising the arrival of mourners and the coffin to the funeral location. 

Helping you deal with a death

When you are faced with having to arrange a funeral, it can be hard to know where to start.
