Cherish Funerals provide much needed and dignified, affordable funeral care because we can. As an experienced team of funeral professionals we recognise the need for cost effective funeral care. We have removed the expensive extra fees involved in organising a funeral and sourced services and products to reduce the cost of a cremation.

Cremation can take place the next day. Cremated remains or ashes are generally ready for collection within 48 business hours of cremation taking place. You are welcome to collect the ashes or Cherish Funerals can return these back to you.
If you wish to travel with the ashes via air, interstate or overseas, we organise all the relevant documentation required.
We can also organise postage of ashes for you via registered post if you want the ashes to be posted interstate or overseas.
