Affordable, No-Service Cremations in Melbourne

On behalf of our team of funeral directors at Brember Family Funerals, please accept our deepest condolences for your loss. We understand that planning a funeral can be an emotional time for you and your family, and we're dedicated to being here to help you through.

With care and compassion at the heart of everything we do, our team believes that everyone has the right to a dignified funeral.

Our affordable, no-service cremation (or burial) funeral package caters for families who want a practical and personal way to farewell their loved one while managing costs.

Contact us before you do anything else, and let us guide you on how to plan an affordable funeral in Melbourne.

What is a No-Service Cremation?

A no-service cremation (or burial if preferred) is a simplified approach to what people consider the 'average' funeral. Rather than holding a traditional funeral service, a no-service cremation allows you and your family to celebrate your loved one's life in an intimately personal way.

As you're foregoing a traditional service, this option is more cost effective and perfect for families on a budget or where a pre-paid funeral wasn't in place.

With all the funeral services we provide at Brember Family Funerals, you'll find that our no-service cremation is still very dignified and respectful.

An example of a no-service cremation is where the loved one is cremated in a private setting. Once the family receives the ashes, they hold a private memorial service in a location where they have chosen to scatter the ashes or at a venue to celebrate and honour their life and say farewell in their own unique style.

Our No-Service Cremations start at $1995 incl. GST and include:

  • A simple coffin (as a legal requirement by the Health Department of Australia)
  • Our professional service fee (transportation of your loved one into our care and to the crematorium, mortuary care and preparation, and obtaining all the needed funeral documents)
  • The cost of the cremation plus the cremation authorisation and medical certificate
  • A copy of the death certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages
  • Cremations held at Springvale, Bunurong, Altona, Fawkner or Lilydale
  • Please note: No mourners will be in attendance, there is no service and no newspaper notices

If you'd prefer a no-service burial, please contact us to ask about our cemetery options (plot & internment).

Why choose a No-Service Cremation in Melbourne?

Families opt for a no-service for many reasons:

  • Affordability: A no-service cremation is very budget-friendly, and your family saves money by eliminating the formal service, venue rental and other funeral-related costs.
  • Flexibility and Personalisation: How you choose to celebrate your loved one's life is up to you (at home, at a memorial ceremony etc.), and without the constraints of a formal service, you're free to honour your loved one's legacy in a way that would match their uniqueness.
  • Simplicity and Convenience: With our team handling the funeral logistics, transport and care of your loved one, you can focus on taking the time to heal, spend time with your friends and family and reminisce about your loved one.
  • Environmental Consciousness: A no-service cremation reduces your carbon footprint (when compared to traditional burials), with cremations conserving natural resources and reducing land usage.
