Common Questions About Costs
How much are Cremation Costs?
As a guide, cremations cost less than burials as there is typically no gravesite. Ashes can be scattered at a personal location such as a beach or alternatively kept in a memorial garden or wall within a cemetery for an additional cost. Cremations can vary between $3000 and $7000 depending on the requests, service, memorial, and personal touches.
How much are Burial Costs?
Burial costs vary from a budget of $6000 upwards. They largely depend on the chosen burial plot and how much of a premium location it is. The coffin or casket type, headstone or gravestone, size and type of service, and memorial options also determine the final cost.
How Much are Pensioner Funerals?
There is help available for pensioner funerals. The federal government’s department of human resources does provide services and financial support to those that qualify. Likewise, Centrelink may provide financial help for partners of a pensioner who has passed by paying up to 14 weeks pension or a pensioner bonus bereavement payment to those who qualify. You can call Centrelink on 132 300 to find out more information. Partners of Veterans may also be eligible through the Department of Veterans Affairs for once-off payments and other benefits. Contact us, and we can help you by providing a list of potential financial support options that can be contacted.
What Is Funeral Assistance?
Funeral assistance is available if a person has passed away in QLD and has no family member or friends capable or willing to pay. In this circumstance, the Department of Justice and Attorney General can make the arrangements on behalf of the deceased under the CCQ Funeral Assistance Scheme where the upfront costs will be paid.
