Standard Cost Items
Service Fee – (professional fees) this is the cost for the Funeral Director to arrange and perform the funeral. Not only does this fee vary for each Funeral Director, but also exactly what the fee incorporates. Careful comparison of what each company includes is necessary. Apart from the cost, there is also the level of customer service and facilities to consider. Like many things in life, the cheapest is not often the best value.
Coffin or Casket – There is a wide range to choose from and costs vary depending on the quality of materials used and the style.
Burial/Cremation fees – costs are standard from the particular cemetery or crematorium chosen. These should be charged to you at price from the Funeral Director.
Optional Cost Items
There are many options that can be added to the funeral process and taken care of by the Funeral Director. All are usually at an additional cost to the service fee.
The options would generally include mourning vehicles, floral tributes, placement of press notices, obtaining additional health or legal certificates, memorialisation requirements, use of chapel, viewing arrangements, function facilities, church/clergy fees, embalming and repatriation interstate or overseas. At Cosmopolitan Funeral Services we are confident that we will be able to take care of any request.
The above funeral costs are of course subject to negotiation and the funeral director will take into account your needs and budget requirements.
