The Direct Burial Plan has been designed for those who request no funeral service whatsoever. It is private with no attendance from family.
Some families choose a direct burial so the burial takes place first, then a memorial service or private family gathering may be held at a later date; either at the graveside or other venue.

*  A standard size dignified cremation casket applies, should an oversize casket be required, additional charges apply
Additional charges may apply for transportation locations 50 km from our office; contact us to find out if additional charges apply.

Other cemeteries can be used with this plan however price adjustments may need to be made depending on location and cemetery fees.

The grave is prepared for one interment, extra depth charges apply if grave is required for more than one interment.

All prices stated are current as at March 2018 and are subject to inflation
