Yes, most definitely. Your loved one will be bathed and dressed by the mortuary staff. Your arranger will speak to you about providing suitable clothing for your loved one and we will organise to gather that from you, or the clothing can be given to our staff when we come to bring your person into our care.

Frequently asked questions.
The date a funeral can take place will depend on many factors, including the location of your loved one and completion of paperwork. There are also many things that need to be planned and put into place. We suggest that at least 7 days is necessary to allow you time to process matters, make decisions and planning to take place. Your funeral date will need to be settled in conjunction with your funeral arranger, but our advice is to not rush and to give yourself the much needed time to prepare for the day fully.
A funeral is a service celebrating your loved one’s life that has the coffin present at the service. It therefore takes place before the cremation and at a venue suitable for the presence of a coffin.
A memorial service in comparison does not have the coffin present at the service. Because of this the service can take place at a wider variety of venues and at any time, before or after the cremation. Many families choose to wait till their loved ones ashes are returned home and have the ashes present at the service.
Both types of services are able to be offered within a Bare Funeral package. Speak to our arrangers to understand which type of service may be best for you and your family. If you wish to receive a free quote online, you will see this option presented as a funeral with a coffin present, or a funeral without a coffin present - this second option is what is also known as a memorial.
Yes you can. The coffins we offer in the package come into the pricing of our package. We can show you a wider selection of coffins and if you wish a different coffin we can organise that for you. The cost difference will then simply be added on to your invoice.
There are no hidden fees. The advertised base package price is the final price, unless you’d like to add additional items or extras - for example a hearse as part of a Bare Funeral.
Any additional costs will be quoted for you prior to booking so you can maintain control over what you spend.
Yes, absolutely. If you'd like to have a viewing, we can arrange for this to happen at the chapel or crematorium prior to the funeral service. To enable this you’ll need to ensure you choose a Bare Funeral where you plan to have your loved one’s coffin present, and which takes place prior to cremation.
After the funeral service, your loved one is taken to our partnered crematorium - where they are privately cremated in their state of the art facility. The cremation is dignified and full of care.
This package includes both the cremation service and a simple, elegant funeral or memorial service at one of our partner venues.
Led by one of our professional celebrants, the service is held at your venue of choice, and includes a beautiful flower arrangement, order of service booklets and a memorial book. We also coordinate a photographic slideshow tribute and music to remember your loved one - all curated in a way that best celebrates the life that was lived.
You’ll have the choice for the funeral to take place prior to cremation, with the coffin present. You may also choose to hold the service following the cremation - also referred to as a memorial.
