Considering cremation services? A Guide to Funeral Options in Adelaide
When planning a funeral for a recently departed loved one, there are few decisions as substantial as the method of dealing with the remains. The first option is a traditional burial, where the body is embalmed, dressed up in a dignified outfit and buried in a casket. The second option is a private cremation, where the body is reduced to cremated remains (or ashes) and placed in an urn or some other vessel.
Deciding whether to opt for a traditional burial or a cremation is a big decision to make for any funeral because it can affect both the feel of the service and the cost of the funeral arrangements. When planning a funeral service for a loved one, it is important to weigh the pros and cons of both burial and cremation before coming to a final decision. At Signature Funeral Services, we offer both traditional burial and cremation services in Adelaide.
Factors to Consider When Going to a Crematorium in Adelaide
When deciding if you should go to a crematorium in Adelaide, the first factor you should consider is whether or not the deceased had a preference on the matter. Some people have very specific wishes about wanting to be cremated and to have their ashes scattered in a specific place. On the other hand, others want to be buried in a traditional casket, in the same cemetery plot where their loved ones have been buried.
If your late loved one has not prepaid their funeral or left no instructions or preferences for burial, cremation or funeral arrangements in general, then the decision rests with the family. If you are on a tight budget and are looking to save money on the funeral, then cremation is the best option. Not only are cremations in Adelaide significantly less expensive, but opting for cremation also avoids a pricey casket purchase.
If you do opt for cremation, at Signature Funeral Services, we can arrange cremations in an Adelaide crematorium and accompany them with touching and personal funeral details. With photos, music and eulogies in comfortable air-conditioned chapels.
Traditional burial is also an option. Signature Funeral Services offers a graveside burial package that includes cemetery arrangements, mortuary care (including preparation and dressing), a casket, a laser-cut grave marker and much more. Whatever you wish for this package is especially apt for you.

Creating The Best Send Off For Your Loved One In Adelaide’s Crematorium
Every service that we lead is completed with compassion and respect for the deceased, along with empathy for those who are attending.
It can be hard to know whether to choose a cremation or traditional burial for your loved one. Many families like to choose the option that their loved one would have wanted. However, if you are not aware of their wishes, we can help you to come to your decision.
In Adelaide, a service in a crematorium is becoming increasingly popular for many reasons. When cremation takes place, you can either decide for the ashes to be buried or you could scatter them over an area of your choosing. This is often a good opportunity for the close family members to come together and celebrate the life of their loved one in a place that holds fond memories.
Cremation is also often much cheaper than a burial. You do not have to purchase a plot of land for the deceased to be buried in and you can avoid buying a casket.
Additionally, choosing a service that takes place in a crematorium in Adelaide can make planning a funeral service a lot easier.
With Signature Funeral Services, we work with you through the whole process, including making the final arrangements with you and your family in the comfort of your own home.
