All prices quoted are GST inclusive.
The life of a loved one can be celebrated in a variety of ways. Many people are involved in a Church community and will choose to have an affordable funerals service there. Others may prefer to use a funeral director’s or crematorium chapel or have the funeral service at some other special place, such as the family home, a park, or a community hall or facility.
The number of mourners expected to attend is often an important consideration when choosing a venue for a funeral service. Funeral services can be conducted by clergy, a civil celebrant, or even a family member or friend.
The funeral costs will essentially reflect the personal, cultural, and financial needs of your family and the choices you make. Howard Squires Funerals has a flexible pricing structure, which allows families to choose from a range of services and options. Some people prefer to obtain information on services, options, and prices before engaging a funeral director in Melbourne.
Our specialist Funeral Planners will provide you with an itemised fee proposal, outlining all of the affordable funerals involved with the funeral that best reflects the life of your loved one and your family’s needs.
