Why pay too much for a funeral service?

OPINION: The longer I stay in this business, the more I get annoyed that bereaved families are paying too much for a funeral service.

It's like when we look to take out a mortgage… we automatically think of the big four, but if you did some research, you would find there are a hundred smaller financial institutions who offer the same service but at a better rate.

And so to with the funeral industry.

When someone passes away, very often it is the first time that a family has to face this situation.

They need to find a funeral director and very often, it is one of the major players that come to mind.

However, when you look a little further you will find there are alternatives.

My name is Krystine Hastings, principal of Cremations Only.

I cannot stress enough, you do not need to pay too much for a funeral service.

We offer a full funeral service at a chapel or church of your choice from $4850 and includes GST, transfer from place of death, polished coffin, service, cremation, celebrant, memorial book, death certificate and flowers.

You will save between $2000 and $4000.

Here's an idea, give the money you save to your family, medical research, charity…don't give it to the funeral director.

By choosing Cremations Only to take care of your loved one, you will not only save money, you will receive the highest levels of care, respect and professionalism.

We are a small family company, a member of the National Funeral Directors' Association and we treat every funeral as if it's for a member of our own family.

We don't skimp on anything. So I urge you please, don't pay too much for a funeral service, visit http://www.cremationsonly.com.au or call me on 1300 311 747.

We operate seven days a week, 24 hours a day and cover an area from Caboolture to Tweed Heads and out past Ipswich.
