No service cremations are becoming increasingly popular in Sydney and across New South Wales – often chosen due to family circumstances or because they were specifically requested by the deceased.

A NSNA funeral (no service, no attendance) gives families the opportunity to celebrate a life in a different way. By choosing not to have a traditional ceremony or service, you can eliminate the costs associated with these and say goodbye in a meaningful yet humble way with the deceased’s closest friends and relatives after the cremation has taken place. Those who choose a direct cremation in NSW often choose to hold their own intimate celebration to commemorate their loved one once the ashes have been received.

If a cremation only option isn’t for you, you can create a meaningful farewell with our sister company, Personal Farewells. Head over to their website to discover affordable options when it comes to cremation services and graveside burials.
