Planning Your Own Cremation

Pre-planning your own affordable cremation service can really help your loved ones during what is likely to be one of the most challenging experiences they will ever undergo.

If you’ve decided that you would like to be cremated, we recommend considering how you would like your service to proceed. You can also sit down with us for a pre-planning meeting to discuss cremation arrangements, such as preferences for your urn, music choices and much more.

Why Choose A Cremation?

Over two thirds of New Zealanders are now choosing to be cremated after they pass on. There are several reasons why affordable cremation services are becoming an increasingly popular choice.

They’re Affordable

Cremation services are far more affordable than a burial service. There are numerous aspects of the service you won’t have to pay for if you choose a cremation instead of a burial, such as the burial plot and interment fees.

They’re Eco-Friendly

Burials involve more resources than cremations, so if you or your loved one has been particularly environmentally conscious, we recommend choosing a cremation as the more eco-friendly option.

You Can Have A Later Memorial Service

After your loved one has been cremated, you have the option of using their ashes as part of a memorial service. This is a wonderful opportunity to come together with family and friends to celebrate the deceased’s life.
You could scatter their remains in a place that is significant to them, such as:

  • Your home
  • Their religious institution
  • The beach / ocean
  • A golf course or sports stadium

You could also keep their ashes at home in an urn or even make them into items of jewellery such as a necklace or ring. 

Please note that it is important to consider practical and legal factors when scattering your loved one’s ashes. For instance, you should not simply scatter them in a public place without first ensuring that you have permission to do so.

A wonderful option for that final farewell

Our affordable cremation services offer you more flexibility if you’re struggling to agree on a final resting place for your loved ones. They are less of a financial burden, more environmentally friendly and open up a range of options for holding a meaningful memorial service that truly commemorates their life.
