Chapel / church service followed by committal at the cemetery

This is a combination of two gatherings.
Firstly, the funeral ceremony of your loved one takes place with their coffin present at the chapel or your family church.
Next, pallbearers carry your loved from the chapel to the hearse at the end of the service.
A procession or funeral cortege follows the hearse to the graveside. Finally, the life-honouring committal where the coffin lowers into the grave and friends and family speak tributes of farewell.

Grave service followed by memorial service

Firstly, there is a graveside gathering for your loved one. Often, this is an intimate group of your close family and friends.
Then, after the graveside service, a more extensive gathering of your community takes place in a venue without your loved one’s coffin present.
We refer to this as a celebration of their life known as the memorial service.

No attendance burial

This is a burial where we are requested to conduct a burial service with no one in attendance. It is often due to cultural, religious, or personal beliefs.
Quite often, the memorial service or celebration of life is held instead at a venue of your family’s choosing. In essence, this is where you remember and celebrate the life of your loved one without the coffin or casket present.
At Cherish Funerals we will assist, guide and manage your loved one’s burial service with respect, compassion and care.

Types of Burials

COMPLETE FUNERAL CARE

Planning a Burial

Have you ever taken a stroll through a cemetery, reading the gravestones’ inscriptions and admiring the design? Have you had the feeling that you are in a sacred place and that each of the souls interred here has a unique story to tell?
The fact that they are a part of someone’s heritage is what matters most. They had an impact on our history. In some way, the person you are reading about made their mark on society.
This is essentially the beauty and significance of a cemetery. Your loved one’s burial plot and plaque will join this revered custom of remembering the deceased in order to acknowledge that their existence on earth was meaningful in some respects.
We are here to guide you through every step of this burial journey.

Burial Options

Lawn Burial

A lawn grave offers a neatly mowed area where individual memorials are placed on the grave, either flush to the surface or on a concrete or granite ledger, in lieu of a more obtrusive headstone.

Monumental Burial

A traditional option is a monumental gravesite. Monumental graves are usually constructed out of marble, granite, stone, or concrete.
It is advised that you work with a certified monumental mason to create the headstone’s design and construction. By providing information about your loved one, they will be able to design a custom headstone that suitably honours them.

Vaults, Mausoleums & Crypts

Typically you might select vaults, mauseoleums, and crypts because of your heritage, either cultural or religious.⁠⁠⁠⁠
When choosing a vault, after embalming your loved one is placed inside the coffin or casket in a metal sealed liner. A copper tray supports the coffin or casket in the grave. Then your monumental mason closes the vault.
Mausoleums and crypts are family chapels which house the coffins or caskets of your deceased family members.
