Farewell Options

Bay Cremation Care is dedicated to creating low cost cremation options along with advice from industry experienced and qualified staff.

While our Economy Farewell does not include viewing, we do have other options available if you would like to have viewing time with your loved one prior to the cremation taking place. Or you may wish to accompany your loved one to the crematorium. Have a chat to one of our team about the different options available.

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