Farewell Options (prices are valid as at 1 July 2023 and are reviewed annually)

Bay Cremation Care is dedicated to creating low cost cremation options along with advice from industry experienced and qualified staff. Please feel comfortable to talk to us about financial matters. We are conscious of costs and different circumstances and can help create a fitting farewell within your budget.

Although our packages are based on the crematorium chapel as a venue, we can tailor a service based at your chosen venue as well.
