If you need help in organising a direct cremation, a memorial or funeral service, we would be honoured to support you. To find out more, visit our Bare website here, or call 1800 071 176.

Our award-winning funeral directors provide simple cremation services, as well as affordable funeral options, across Melbourne and Victoria. And we’re available 24/7, ready to help with whatever you need.

The funeral director that’s making funerals simple and affordable.

At Bare, we believe that everyone should have the right to go their own way – whether that’s a quiet family gathering, an ashes scattering ceremony or nothing at all.

The ability to decide what kind of farewell to organise for your loved one should be a right, but is more and more difficult with some funeral homes trying to upsell you on a million unnecessary extras.

More importantly, we don’t believe the price paid for a funeral reflects how much someone was loved. And we understand that people don’t want all the fuss and elaborateness of a ceremony, So, we offer the highest quality service, at the lowest possible price.

In Melbourne, our At Need direct cremation service costs $2,299 and includes:

  • Collection from place of passing by Professional Transfer Services.
  • Transfer of your loved one into care (24/7) at Geelong Memorial Park Crematorium based in Geelong East.
  • Private cremation at Geelong Memorial Park Crematorium.
  • All required paperwork and registrations.
  • Return of ashes to the family (hand delivery in most metro suburbs).

What is the Bare Cremation process?

Our funeral process is simple, dignified and trusted. We keep you updated so you’ll always know where your loved one is until they are returned to you. If you want to organise your own memorial or need us to help, the choice is always yours.

  1. We’ll collect your loved one.

We’ll arrange the collection of your loved one from their place of passing and transport them to Geelong Memorial Park Crematorium.

  1. We’ll arrange the cremation.

We’ll arrange a respectful, private, and dignified cremation, register the death, and order the death certificate.

  1. We’ll return the ashes to you.

We'll deliver the ashes to you, at a time that suits you. We hand deliver ashes to most metro Melbourne suburbs.

  1. We can help organise a service (optional).

We can help in arranging a memorial service after the ashes have been returned. This service can be customised based on preferences, traditions, or any specific wishes you might have.

We also offer the option to hold a ceremony prior to the cremation in a more traditional style of farewell. Our funeral directors and celebrants are ready to arrange a funeral service that’s right for you and your loved one. 

The best choice for a funeral director in Melbourne.

With over 1,000 5-star reviews and national awards in customer service and innovation, Bare stands out as a funeral director embracing change and supporting our families through every step of the difficult process.

Cremation-first funerals and memorials allow for the time and space to grieve before rushing to make an important financial decision. Once your loved one’s ashes are returned to you, we can help you organise a memorial that best suits your loved one. Whether that’s in a week, month or year. It is also important to mention that choosing cremation does not mean you cannot have a traditional farewell. Families can still decide to have a more traditional service or ceremony where the coffin is present before the cremation takes place and we can also help in organising this arrangement.

We’re also not going to pop up with hidden fees and aren’t a fan of expensive coffins. We only provide you with what you need at a fair price, which is all transparent and upfront, so you know what you’re getting. 

And we deliver our care with empathy, not just sympathy. Our incredible team, filled with funeral directors, arrangers, customer support and more, are passionate about helping families navigate their grief and making this incredibly hard time just that little bit easier.
