When it comes to burial there are two options, a direct burial (with no service and no attendance) or a burial with a funeral service.
A direct burial starts from $4,150, including burial plot opening and closing fees.
A burial with a funeral service starts from $7,000 (including the opening and closing fees).
These prices don't include the cost of the plot itself. Costs of burial plots in Sydney range from $6,000 to $45,000.
Burial plots are often purchased ahead of time, and if this is a preferred option, should form part of end of life planning where possible. Some people like to engage the cemetery directly, but if required, we can make the approach on your behalf, and do all the organising for you.
You will also need to consider the headstone (generally ordered through the local stonemason); prices can vary depending on material, size etc.

"Thank you to the wonderful people at Picaluna for a fantastic Celebration of my Dad's life. You picked a fantastic venue for us and made everything run smoothly and hassle free. The ceremony was personal and tailored to my Dad and his heritage and Shelly Bennett and Annabelle Peacock did a fantastic job. All the guests said what a lovely celebration it was and everyone was very pleased with the whole event. I would highly recommend Picaluna to everyone for their fantastic service!"
