Burial verse Cremation

Deciding between cremation or burial is a very personal decision and there is no right or wrong answer…every individual is different. Most people have already expressed their preference to a loved one or formalised their decision by writing it into their will.

Deciding between cremation or burial is a very personal decision and there is no right or wrong answer…every individual is different. Most people have already expressed their preference to a loved one or formalised their decision by writing it into their will. If you are unsure about the wishes or your loved one, the team at Blue Mountains Funeral can explain both options to you in safe and confidential environment and support you to come to a decision that you and your family are comfortable with.

Burial

A burial is a more traditional way of laying your loved one to rest. Families choosing a burial may already have a cemetery in mind or a pre-purchased plot. Blue Mountains Funerals can assist you to find a cemetery and plot. Services can be held in a chapel or church before hand, or by the graveside.

Cremation

A cremation can give the family more time and flexibility to decide the final resting place of their loved one. After the cremation, families are presented with their loved ones ashes which can be buried in a cemetery or scattered in a rose garden or place of significance to the family. This is becoming an increasingly more popular choice for individuals and their families and is typically of lower cost compared to a burial.

It was such an emotional time for us but your professionalism and compassion helped enormously.

I haven’t been through this process before but it wasn’t upsetting as both Julie and Jo gave us such support and nothing was too much trouble.

I would definitely recommend you after our experience.

The team, especially Asha and Tom, are wonderful people to work with. They provided professional, compassionate guidance through the funeral planning process, and my dad’s service was exactly how we envisioned. I would recommend you to anybody who finds themselves in the unfortunate position of needing to plan a funeral.

Not only were you all very patient but showed compassion in this difficult time. Tom we thank you and all your wonderful staff. The women looked so beautiful on the day and we were all touched at how everything fell into place. We think Dad would have been honoured.

The funeral service that you put together was absolutely perfect and was exactly what mum would have wanted. Please know that if I ever need a funeral director again you will be my first call.
