Delivery or return of ashes can also impact the timing depending on the method of return that. is selected.
The paperwork requirements vary by state. We will provide all documentation that needs to be filled out to the family – we also give you the ability to complete these documents online, so you don’t need to find a printer. The documents are used for authorisation to cremate, transferring a person into our care from an institution (such as a hospital), and personal details for the registration of the passing.

From the time of cremation, we typically advise a wait time of 10-15 business days. 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.
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.
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.
You are able to elect not to have the ashes returned. We will require signature confirmation that this is your wishes. We can then scatter or dispose of the ashes on your behalf.
We take this responsibility very seriously, and the process to ensure this happens is closely regulated by the Australian Government. Before cremation, an ID number is assigned and stamped on a metal disk – this then accompanies your loved one throughout the cremation process, so we always know who is who.
