Funeral Pricing

Absolute Care Funerals will disclose information regarding the cost of specific goods and services. We’re here to discuss any out-of-pocket expenses, and payments due before entering into any agreement with you and your family.

Each funeral service is distinctive. This means that the overall expense will depend on the plans you make, and we will always meet with you to ensure that you can plan the service you desire, because you are the best person to understand your loved one.

All funerals must have certain components (such as cremation or burial) and adhere to certain legal standards. Some of these expenses are set, while others change over time. Additionally, there are a lot of components that differ from one funeral to the other, and costs will change based on your decisions.

We transport the deceased in our unmarked transfer vehicles from the family home, hospital, or aged care facility to our care facility.

For cremations and burials, we utilize all of the main and a few private crematoriums and cemeteries in Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle, Wollongong, and the Blue Mountains.

We drive your loved one in our Hearse to the crematorium, cemetery, or church.

Please find the following affordable funeral service in Sydney as examples, along with a breakdown of the related expenditures.
