We are able to offer options and assistance for you and arrange the specific requests on your behalf.

Each funeral is unique and very personal and costs are reflected by the choices and decisions the family make. Many options are available and are best discussed with your Funeral Director to achieve the ideal farewell whilst satisfying budgetary requirements. We are here to help and support you with these decisions.

*Finance is available upon application to assist with the costs associated in satisfying the families wishes for a funeral service.

Pre-arranging your wishes is a very thoughtful and accepted way to assist families to fulfill funeral requirements. Often there are details that only you can answer and this information can allow the family to be better informed and able to prepare an appropriate farewell. Pre-paid plans are very common and can be most helpful to reduce the monetary burden on the family. Silver Dove Funerals do not receive funds for pre-paid plans, we arrange on your behalf with a reputable Brisbane based Funeral Fund.

Chaplains and appropriate representatives can be arranged to meet the specific needs of each family and acknowledge the respective beliefs and wishes. We believe in offering our greatest respects to our returned service personnel and our family are able to provide the appropriate commemorative services to honour their service.

Eco-Friendly options

It is becoming more frequent that many people and their loved ones are choosing a greener, more refined farewell using our Eco-Friendly options that are available. Silver Dove Funerals provide ‘Eco Coffins’ that are made by natural products, that are by far more environmentally friendly. Whilst every effort is made there are times when a complete ‘Green Funeral’ is made difficult. With this in mind, our staff will source the best ways to provide you with a Greener Funeral and say farewell in a more natural manner. For more information on our Eco options, please click on the Eco-Friendly Options.

Additional information

A selection of seagrass, willow and wool woven coffins with all natural fibres and natural liners. Other selections are available, please discuss with your arranger.

Silver Dove Funerals offers a wide range of eco-friendly options. Below are just some of our range of Hand Woven & Wool coffins that we have available. Eco-Friendly caskets are a beautiful and natural solution to a difficult problem. We understand that in recent times, people are wanting to say “farewell” in a more environmentally friendly, alternative way and we have embraced this. Our eco range has been hand selected by Silver Dove Funerals> in order to provide you with an environmentally alternative farewell.

Willow is a carbon neutral material that only gives off the same amount of carbon that it consumes within it’s lifetime.  All of our Willow Caskets are completely natural and biodegradable. They break down in 6 months to 2 years depending on soil conditions. Willow coffins are woven and therefore do not depend on toxic glues, varnish, plastics, or metals.

Burial

Burial is a traditional option and a personal preference. For burials, we are able to provide advice and assistance if a new grave is required or, the family may have an existing plot. If your family does not already have a cemetery plot, our staff are able to advise you on cemetery locations for a suitable burial plot or crypt for your loved one.

Memorial

Often the presence of a coffin can be overwhelming and stressful for the family. We can assist and organise the cremation of a loved one and, after collecting the ashes on your behalf, arrange a service to celebrate and honour the life of your loved one. For more information, please click the ‘Memorial’ heading above.
