CREMATION SERVICES – A PERSONAL CHOICE
Cremation is an affordable option, has a reduced environmental impact, and fits with most religious beliefs. It is gaining in popularity as Sydney burial land becomes scarce and the price of burials continues to climb. The range of options for cremation memorials enables families to create a personal and lasting tribute for future generations.
THE COST OF CREMATION
Cremation can be around $3000-$4000 cheaper than a basic burial lawn burial. However, Catholic Cemeteries has made it their mission to offer the most affordable and beautiful services for the Sydney community.
A complete package of cremation, chapel, single niche, interment and memorial plaque is available for $2,348.00, and a prepaid cremation service is only $1,060.00. Other packages include chapel services. The packages can be purchased in advance for those pre-planning their funerals, which offers the advantage of locking in at current prices.
THE PREMIER SYDNEY CREMATORIUM
Western Sydney Crematorium at Catholic Cemetery Rookwood is a state of the art facility using the latest modern technology to minimise the impact on the environment. The chapel for services is both elegant and peaceful.
The cremation funeral is made even easier with modern chapels and condolence lounges centrally located at both Rookwood and Liverpool Cemetery.
CARING FOR THE COMMUNITY
Catholic Cemeteries & Crematoria is like many Catholic organisations such as St Vincent’s, whose mission is to care for all in the community. Services can be conducted within the christian context at the crematorium, or you may prefer to celebrate mass in your local church, and conduct the cremation at the crematorium.
THE NEXT STEP AFTER CREMATION
The memorialisation of cremated remains or ashes is a personal choice for families and there are different options to suit different budgets including
- Burial within a family grave
