ARRANGING A FUNERAL
A Pre-Arranged Funeral is where a client may discuss with a Funeral Director their preferences for a type and style of funeral and the Funeral Director may record these preferences for future reference, but no formal agreement is entered into for that specific funeral. It will be the responsibility of the client’s family or executor to arrange the funeral and to pay for it at the time of the funeral. Discussing your Pre – Arranged funeral plan with St Nicodemus Funerals is free of charge.
A Prepaid funeral plan allows you to decide now what you want regarding your funeral and also pay at today’s price. The cost is fixed forever.
Leaving your loved ones with no more to pay and know your wishes.
Your pre–payment is securely lodged with a recognised funeral funds manager. Discussing your Prepaid funeral plan with St Nicodemus Funerals is free of charge.
Overseas repatriation is very common and families who wish their loved ones to return to their original place of birth in other countries or states. It is essential that the correct procedures are adhered to. The process can take a number of days to finalise, particularly as full embalming of the deceased is required. Documentation is also required regarding health departments, foreign agencies Consulate-General of the country concerned and airline bookings.
Viewing is a special time for the family and friends to pay their respects and private farewells before the funeral service is conducted.
Holding a viewing is a valuable experience and is traditional for many cultures and religions. We acknowledge that a viewing may be different for certain religions and cultures, so we can cater to your needs, or discuss any requirements you may have.
Sincere Funerals guarantee you the best attention in arranging and conducting the most special aspect of your loved one’s service.
We are open to any of your requests or needs, whether it is a traditional service in a church of your choice, a quiet but contemporary chapel service close to the grave site, or an environmentally friendly service with an environmentally friendly coffin, and a tree planting ceremony.
Embalming involves disinfecting a body, and preserving it for funeral or other services.
Embalming is not necessary for all funeral services, the following circumstances require embalming: when a body is buried above ground, or when a body needs to be transported overseas.
We offer full embalming and temporary preservations for your funeral service, and this can be arranged by calling us, or meeting with one of our funeral assistants.
