The cost of a funeral can vary considerably, depending on the decisions you make about the style of coffin, floral tributes, and catering.
There are certain costs that remain the same for any funeral (fixed costs). That’s your starting point. You then add the various options that you choose.
Fixed Costs (for funerals conducted Monday to Friday)
All funerals incur a fixed service fee.
At Wollongong City Funerals, this fee may include the use of our chapel and use of a room for refreshments. The fee also covers the administration and coordination of all activities related to the funeral service and mortuary care of your loved one.
Unlike some other funeral homes, Wollongong City Funerals include the transfer of the deceased within 30 km of the funeral home at no additional charge any time of day or night.
By law, we must present your loved in a coffin for their final committal (burial or cremation). Wollongong City Funerals have a range of coffins to suit most tastes and budgets.
[Fixed costs for other people/places involved in the funeral]. This includes:
- Cremation Fee (Wollongong City Memorial Gardens Crematorium)
- Doctors’ Fees for Cremation (No fee for Coroner’s cases)
- Copy of Death Registration Certificate
You may decide that you prefer a different coffin, or that you would like to include refreshments. You might also like Wollongong City Funerals to organise a DVD presentation of photos showing various aspects of your loved one’s life.
Other options include: size and style of floral arrangements, afterhours prayers/viewing; public notices, and a mourning car for family members.
