To obtain an accurate cost we suggest you have a face-to-face meeting with your funeral director so that all the options can be explained and all costs can be itemised, that said as a guide, an appropriately conducted funeral may cost anywhere between $4,000 and $12,000. Funerals are personal events and therefore each family will make different decisions on the style of service they wish to have. These choices will reflect the personal, cultural and financial needs of a family and can significantly impact on the overall cost of the funeral.
