Brisbane Burial Considerations

If you or your loved one has decided a burial is preferable, here are a few items to keep in mind when planning:

Do you have an existing plot or a new plot? (grave location)
Do you have a pre-paid plot?
Where do you want to hold the service? Options: Church, Chapel, in the grounds of cemetery or gravesite.
When would you like to hold the ceremony? (The Anton Brown team will make bookings on your behalf)

Burial Services Explained

Chapel Service and Burial

This is a service that is held in one of the many Cemetery Chapels in Brisbane. These can be either a religious service with a Priest or a non-religious service using a Funeral Celebrant. You may even have a member of the family or a friend conduct the service.

These services are normally around 30 minutes long, although if you need a longer time for the service a double booking can be made.

On completion of the service in the chapel everyone moves to the graveside, usually in the same cemetery, for the final committal.

Some of the cemeteries have a condolence lounge so that family and friends can get together for a coffee and chat after the service.

Church Service and Burial

If you desire a religious funeral service, then you may have a service in your church, or a church in your area. This would be conducted by the Parish Priest.

On completion of the funeral service at the church, the hearse would then leave for the crematorium.

The funeral cortege would then make its way to the cemetery for burial. Once at the graveside the committal and burial would occur.

Graveside Service

A graveside service can be conducted where a service in a church or chapel is not required.

Everyone gathers at the graveside and the service occurs there.

We can provide a CD player for music and a PA system for larger services, if needed.

Non-Attended Burial

We offer a non-attended burial for families who do not wish to hold a full funeral service.

After meeting with the family and completing the necessary paperwork, we take the coffin to the cemetery for burial.

Monuments or plaques can be arranged by the family directly with the cemetery.
