Burials cost on average $11,000. This would include a basic coffin, purchase of a new grave in Geelong, interment or digging fee, celebrants fee, flowers, certificates and the funeral directors fee. What the funeral directors fee includes varies between funeral directors. Items that our service fee includes but some funeral directors may charge extra for are; a viewing of the deceased, a photographic DVD to be played at the service, video recording of all services at any location and online streaming of any funeral service at any location. Items that would be extra are; catering for refreshments, printing of service booklets, newspaper notices, a musician or a chauffeur.
The burial element of the funeral service is usually around 10-15 minutes and takes place before or after the main ceremony that is usually conducted at another venue. Some people choose to have the entire service at the graveside and in this case it could take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour or more.
