Can I still have a cremation funeral service?

Absolutely! You are more than welcome to have a funeral service or memorial ceremony for your loved in your own time once they have been returned to you. If you don’t want a conventional burial or funeral, Cost Less cremation is the ideal choice.

Where are you based?

We’re based in Melbourne, but offer our services for families throughout Australia. We’ve been offering low-cost cremations to Australian families for years and have the know-how to provide professional cremation services.

Why are Costless Cremations so affordable?

Simply put, it simply covers the cost of a cremation and its execution. There are no ceremonies, services, or other fees included, allowing you to remember your loved one in the way you choose. All our cremation service includes is only what is necessary for the cremation itself. The only optional add on cost we offer is for viewing before cremation.

Why get a cremation instead of a burial?

A funeral might be costly, and the price of them is only going to rise. Not to mention the fact that you’re restricted by the rules of the funeral director you chose, as well as their processes and other restrictions. In today’s world, many individuals are unable to afford full funerals, whether that’s due to a traditional burial or funeral being expensive, or for other reasons.

Direct cremations are far more cost-effective than funeral services and give you complete control over how you want to remember your loved one.
