If you've found yourself left planning a funeral and you're wondering how you're meant to pay for it, don't panic!

We have a range of budget funerals in Melbourne that will help, including our affordable Direct Or Non-Service, Or Haven packages.

First, you need to know that it doesn't matter how much money you spend on someone's funeral. The cost does not reflect how much you cared for or loved the person. 

A funeral should be planned as a celebration of your loved one's life, and there are many ways you can plan a budget funeral in Melbourne. The funeral can still be dignified and respectful and have your unique personal touches. 

As trusted funeral directors, we often hear families say they're under strict instructions from their loved ones to spend as little as possible on their funeral. They understand it's needed but don't want to leave this world with a fanfare that has their family struggling to pay for it.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does the average funeral cost in Australia?

You'll find funeral costs vary in Australia, with each funeral home setting their prices. At Brember Family Funerals, we lay out the fees upfront when we meet you so you know exactly what it will cost. Our funerals cost anywhere from $1995 for a budget funeral to $9500 for a full-service funeral.

What services are included in a budget funeral package?

Our budget funerals (Direct or Non-Service or Haven package) have different offerings depending on your needs. At a minimum, a budget funeral package includes a coffin (required by law), professional service fee and the cremation cost.

How can I personalise a budget funeral without incurring additional costs?

To plan a budget funeral without incurring additional costs, we suggest you speak to your funeral director to choose the right package for your needs. At Brember Family Funerals, we're upfront and transparent with our costs, so you won't receive extra charges for items you didn't know about. Some budget funerals allow for a eulogy so that you can personalise your service with your words. You are also welcome to place things in the coffin with your loved one and say goodbye privately.

What are the differences between a budget funeral and a traditional funeral?

A budget funeral is usually very low-key and often doesn't include a service. Your loved one is left in our care, and we make all the arrangements to have them privately cremated and the ashes returned to you. You can opt for a short service, which our in-house celebrant can officiate.

A traditional service involves a full funeral service with the option of a burial or cremation service to follow. A viewing may be included before the funeral service, depending on your religion and beliefs. A range of traditional funeral services are also available for those who'd like a more formal farewell.
