Helping families and friends honour their loved one

Fixed Price Farewell Packages available

What do the people living in our beautiful area say about funeral costs?

  • Why do funerals cost so much – what do we get for our money?”
  • Can’t I just be cremated without all the fuss?
  • We can’t afford a big funeral!

These and other similar remarks are what we have heard over the years and so have decided to do something about it.

Important Things to Consider

There are some things you need to consider –  the cremation package must be right for your loved one and your family.

Sometimes the choices we make are simply financial. Bay Cremation Care is dedicated to creating low cost cremation options along with advice from industry experienced and qualified staff.

In helping the bereaved come to terms with the mortality of a loved one, a funeral

  • allows people to grieve openly with the support of family, friends and the community
  • is a good way to highlight a person’s achievements
  • allows friends, associations, clubs, organisations and work colleagues to pay their respects.

While it is important to carry out a loved one’s final wishes, every person grieves differently and it is important to consider how family members and friends will deal with their grief. An alternative low cost option when you choose a cremation, is to have a private gathering with family and friends or a memorial service at a later date.
