Frequently asked questions.
You may request to not have the ashes returned after the cremation. If that is your wish, we will require a signature as confirmation. We can then scatter or dispose of the ashes on your behalf.
This will vary with each state, but in the majority of metropolitan areas we will hand deliver the ashes back to your family. We can also mail the ashes or you can collect from our local service provider. Please note we require a signature for all return of ashes to ensure they are successfully delivered. You’re also welcome to personally collect the ashes from the Crematorium if you prefer.
There are a number of institutions and people you should contact to ensure a person’s estate is effectively closed. Our team is here to help you with that, and we’ve also built a comprehensive checklist to help you navigate through the estate administration process.
From the time of cremation, we typically advise a wait time of 3 weeks. At times it can take longer if there is a delay in processing by the state authority. If there is a long delay, we will actively follow up on your behalf.
Each state in Australia has its own guidelines which tell you how to go about registering a death. Typically you’ll need a death certificate to cancel bills, bank accounts, utilities and administer other parts of the estate.
Yes we collect anytime day or night. Sometimes we will be dictated by the location of collection, for example certain hospitals will have dedicated collection times that we must adhere to. Needless to say, we will always collect as soon as possible – and there are never any out of hours hidden fees.
Absolutely. In fact, we encourage it. You can call our 24 hour line – 1800 071 176 anytime. We have arrangers on hand to walk you through the process and answer any questions you have.
