The Cremation Funeral Service
Many families choose a cremation service for the loved one opposed to a traditional burial service. In many instances, cremation has been requested by their family member prior to their passing.
Basically a cremation is a funeral service that involves burning of the deceased remains into ashes. In today’s age, the cremation funeral service is becoming more popular due to cost and the deceased beliefs and personal request.
Usually the deceased is cremated after a funeral service, this cremation process can be included as part of funeral service itself, or direct cremation can also be an option without the funeral service. In general Sahara Funerals in Sydney find that many families choose cremation for their loved one as it’s cost-effective and the funeral service can be more gentle for those who are attending the funeral.
These two types of cremation services are just a couple of options that are being offered as various funeral options in Sydney. If you have any questions regarding cremation services here in Sydney, please don’t hesitate to call us here at Sahara Funerals.
The Graveside Service Option
The graveside funeral service is conducted entirely at the graveside itself. This type of funeral has various benefits for the family, friends and the deceased. Firstly, a graveside service provides privacy for all concerned and is beneficial in situations where privacy is essential. The graveside burial service is also fitting for religious reasons or perhaps spiritual beliefs of the family or deceased.
During the graveside burial, most family members request a committal service only, this enables the graveside burial to take place at a cemetery or crematorium. This service usually takes place immediately after the funeral service itself.

Memorial services are quite often informal and can be offered in place of a full church or cremation service. Most often memorial services take place before the burial or cremation, however, a memorial service can take place directly after the funeral instead.
In most cases, a memorial service is organised and hosted by the family of the deceased. This service is provided to acknowledge the passing publicly, this gives others an opportunity to honour, respect and grieve the passing.
