Cremation Mackay

 
 
 

Cremation Funerals

 
Cremation has become a popular option for funerals in Mackay. It’s in fact the preference of more than 80% of Australians. The practical advantages of cremation over burial are obvious.

A cremation can be done without a memorial service. More often, however, Mackay cremations are preceded by more traditional memorial services. These can be held in our chapel at Serene Funerals.

 
Alternatively, the service can be performed at a chapel of your choosing. In either case, the wishes of the bereaved, as well as those of the deceased, play a defining role in the ceremonies.

With Serene Funerals, all beliefs and preferences will be accommodated with full respect to all those involved. Viewing can be arranged during memorial services prior to the cremation. We will, of course, organise every aspect of the entire process, including helping you with choosing a cremation urn.

 

Cremation Urns

 
Cremation urns offer families a few unique possibilities. A cremation urn can be:

  • Kept with the family at home.
  • Scattered in a place of significance.
  • Sea burial (biodegradable rock salt urn is a good option).
  • Placed in a columbarium or wall niche at a cemetery. A rectangular-shaped cremation urn (usually timber or marble) should fit the niche.
  • Interred in a cemetery. Along with the cremation urn, it’s most likely you will also need to purchase an urn vault.
  • Interred in a natural burial ground. Natural burial sites are often marked only by coordinates, and perhaps stones. An eco-friendly biodegradable urn would be appropriate.
