In Australia, funerals are a time-honored tradition that allows loved ones to come together to commemorate and honor the life of the deceased. Golden Memories Funeral understands the importance of providing diverse options to cater to the unique needs and preferences of grieving families. In this blog, we'll explore the different types of funerals commonly held in Australia, including interment services and overseas funeral repatriation, to help you make informed decisions during this difficult time.

1. Traditional Burial Services:

Traditional burial services involve the interment of the deceased's body in a cemetery or memorial park. This type of funeral typically includes a viewing or visitation, a funeral ceremony at a place of worship or funeral home, and a graveside service. Families may choose to personalize the service with readings, music, and eulogies to honor the memory of their loved one.

2. Cremation Services:

Cremation is an increasingly popular option in Australia, offering flexibility and versatility in funeral arrangements. Cremation services involve the cremation of the deceased's body followed by a memorial service or scattering of ashes. Families may opt for a traditional funeral ceremony before cremation or choose to hold a memorial service at a later date.

3. Interment Services:

Interment services refer to the burial or placement of the deceased's cremated remains in a cemetery, mausoleum, or columbarium. Families can choose from various interment options, including burial plots, cremation niches, or memorial gardens. Interment services provide a permanent resting place for the deceased and offer a sense of closure for grieving loved ones.

4. Overseas Funeral Repatriation:

In cases where the deceased passes away while overseas, overseas funeral repatriation services are available to facilitate the return of the deceased's remains to Australia for funeral arrangements. Golden Memories Funeral offers comprehensive repatriation services, including coordination with international authorities, transportation arrangements, and assistance with documentation and paperwork.

5. Eco-Friendly Funerals:

With growing environmental awareness, eco-friendly funerals have become increasingly popular in Australia. These funerals prioritize sustainability and minimize environmental impact by opting for biodegradable caskets, natural burial grounds, and eco-friendly cremation practices. Eco-friendly funerals provide a meaningful way to honor the deceased while promoting environmental stewardship.


Choosing the right type of funeral is an important decision that reflects the wishes and values of the deceased and their loved ones. Whether you opt for a traditional burial service, cremation, interment, or overseas funeral repatriation, Golden Memories Funeral is here to provide compassionate support and guidance every step of the way.
