Funeral Packages

The most crucial element in arranging a funeral is you, your loved one and your family. As no two people or two families experience grief and loss precisely the same way, no funeral package or option will be perfect for everyone. Although they can be selected as is, the following options and packages can be modified, altered, added to and subtracted from to suit you and your family. At Academy Funerals, our focus is on you and finding the right way for you to honour your loved one.

PLEASE NOTE:

Although the above package options are a simple way of determining funeral options and prices, they may be mixed, altered and adjusted. All final funeral costs will be discussed with the family, or responsible person, within the arrangement meeting and fully explained prior to the final authorisation via signature. You are at all times in full control of determining all elements of the funeral decisions and how they affect the overall funeral cost.

Funeral Arrangement Additional Decisions and Choices:

Coffin Choices:

Explore our wide range of eco-friendly coffins crafted from sustainably sourced timber and forestry thinning. Each model in our selection, including our wicker range certified by the World Fair Trade Organisation, is designed with environmental responsibility and aesthetic appeal in mind. Our coffins are customisable, allowing you to choose or modify them according to your preferences, ensuring the final tribute beautifully reflects your loved one’s legacy.

Flowers:

Personalise the final tribute with a bespoke floral arrangement from our extensive selection, or feel free to provide your own to add a deeply personal touch to the service. Whether opting for a grand display or a modest bouquet, flowers can significantly embody your sentiments and beautify the farewell.

Live Streaming:

Enable family and friends who are unable to attend in person to participate in the service from anywhere around the world. Our live streaming option incorporates a discreet and professional setup, where cameras capture the solemnity of the service without intruding on the intimate moments of farewell. This service ensures that all who wish to pay their respects can do so, bridging distances with technology.

Certified Copy of Death Certificate:

We handle the necessary administrative tasks, including applying for the Death Certificate on your behalf. This service simplifies the process of settling the estate, providing you with peace of mind during this difficult time. We also supply several JP-certified copies to assist you in finalising your loved one’s affairs.

Memorial Book:

Our memorial books serve as cherished keepsakes, allowing attendees to record their names and share memories. If you have a special book you’d prefer to use, we invite you to bring it along to the service. This thoughtful detail can provide comfort to friends and family, creating a lasting record of those who came to pay their respects.

Newspaper Notice:

While the tradition of announcing funerals in newspapers has waned, we offer flexible options to spread the word. We can post notices on our website and Facebook page or, if you prefer, arrange for publication in any global newspaper. This allows you to tailor the announcement to your needs, ensuring it reaches the right audience.

Digital Advertisements:

In line with modern communication trends, we offer complimentary digital advertisements of the funeral details on our website and Facebook page. There are no size restrictions, and all notices are emailed to you for approval before posting, ensuring the message is just right.

Order of Service / Tribute Cards / Thank You Cards:

Our in-house multimedia services allow us to create personalised Order of Service booklets, Tribute Cards, and Thank You Cards. These items can be tailored to reflect your loved one’s life and can be cherished by attendees as a reminder of the day they gathered to honour their memory.

Playing Downloaded or Digital Music:

Most venues are equipped to play digital music, allowing you to choose soundtracks that resonate with your loved one’s memory. Whether you prefer to use our full multimedia services or provide your own digital compositions, we ensure the music perfectly complements the atmosphere of the service.

Live Musicians:

We have access to a range of talented musicians, including vocalists, organists, and buglers, who can perform at any requested venue. Live music adds a profound touch of solemnity and celebration to honour your loved one’s memory during the service.

Military Requirements:

We provide flags, medal displays, and perform the Last Post and Reveille at services for veterans. Live buglers are available upon request, and we coordinate with local RSL clubs to ensure military honours are presented with respect and dignity.

Dressing, Viewing, and Spending Time with Your Loved One:

We understand the importance of personal farewells. Our facilities are open for you to spend time with, dress, or simply sit with your loved one. This service is offered at no additional cost, ensuring you can say goodbye in a manner that suits your needs without concern for extra fees.

Catering:

Our after-funeral catering services offer a variety of options to suit any gathering, whether at crematoria lounges or alternative venues. We can suggest local catering services that provide delicious and comforting food, helping you plan a gathering that reflects your preferences and respects your budget.

Hearse:

Our modern hearses are available for transporting your loved one to their final resting place. These vehicles are equipped with extra seats to accommodate family members who wish to accompany their loved one along the journey.

Doves / Butterflies / Balloons:

We can arrange for the release of doves, butterflies, or environmentally sensitive balloons at the service, creating a beautiful, symbolic gesture of release. We ensure these elements are incorporated gracefully into the service, according to your wishes. (Note – Environmental laws throughout Australia may restrict the use, and release of balloons. Academy Funerals can always advise on current environmental legislation and work options to suit).

Venue:

Beyond traditional settings, we can organise services in public spaces such as parks, beaches, or countryside locations. We are committed to making each service uniquely memorable and can assist in planning a service that truly reflects your loved one’s spirit in a setting that feels right for you.

Pre-Planning Services:

Pre-planning your funeral service ensures that your wishes are respected and relieves your loved ones of having to make decisions during a time of grief. At Academy Funerals, we provide detailed pre-planning services that cover everything from the choice of the coffin or casket to specific ceremonial wishes. This service not only secures today’s prices but also reflects your personal style and life.

Green/Eco-Friendly Funerals:

For those who lived with an environmental conscience, our green funeral options ensure that final wishes continue to reflect personal values. From biodegradable coffins and caskets to ceremonies at natural conservation burial grounds, we help you plan a farewell that honours both your loved one and the planet.

Grief Support Resources:

Grief is a journey that doesn’t end with the funeral. We offer ongoing support through grief counselling services, support group referrals, and access to online resources to help you and your family navigate your emotions and find comfort during this challenging time.

Memorialisation Options:

Celebrate your loved one’s legacy with personalised memorialisation options. From custom-designed monuments and memorial jewellery that incorporates elements like fingerprints or ashes to digital memorials that keep memories alive online, we help you choose a tribute that suits your family’s desires.

Repatriation Services:

In our globally connected world, it’s not uncommon for families to need repatriation services for their loved ones. Academy Funerals offers comprehensive assistance with both national and international repatriation, ensuring that all legal and logistical aspects are handled with care and respect.

After Hours Funeral Arrangements:

We provide after-hours service to handle all necessary arrangements, ensuring everything is prepared with care and professionalism. Our commitment extends to offering visits to your home or another chosen location to discuss and finalise the arrangements, providing peace of mind at no extra charge.

After Hours Transfers:

We offer transparent discussions about any additional fees that may apply for transfers needed outside of normal business hours, ensuring you are fully informed and comfortable with all aspects of our service.
