The place to find the best Funeral Directors in Cairns

When someone dies, it is important for people to be able to gather to pay their respects, and to give and receive support from one another. A Cairns funeral and cremation business can organise the finer details of the service, providing a safe, comfortable place to express grief and allow you to share your feelings of loss. If the death is due to natural causes, it is advisable to call the funeral director as soon as possible. A funeral director is trained to support you in the first period of mourning, when you may be in shock and unable to think clearly. It’s not expected that you will make every decision on your first meeting, but certain details like a day, time and place for the ceremony and the type of funeral will need to be decided on fairly quickly. Remember some people who live out of town may wish to attend and will need time to make travel arrangements. You may meet with the funeral director a couple of times. Decisions to be made involve the type of coffin, what sort of flowers you would like displayed, music, photos or video for the service and how you will make the death announcement – whether it will be via internet or newspaper, and costs. You will also be asked to bring clothes to dress your loved one, and makeup. The funeral director may ask for a photo to help when preparing for the service. A viewing is a personal choice but taking one

last time to see your loved one before their funeral can help the grieving process. Funeral services can be held almost anywhere. Most are held, traditionally, in a church, but many ceremonies are being held at home or in a favourite setting, or held graveside. More and more ceremonies are being tailored to the individual with funeral directors helping grieving families create fitting, personalised tributes, while also organising all the service suppliers and settling accounts on your behalf. The funeral home will also apply through the Department of Births, Deaths and Marriages for legal documentation. A death certificate is required to finalise the estate. There is no specific time frame for Cairns funerals and cremations. If a funeral must be delayed for more than four weeks, there will need to be an embalming. The ceremony can be held around three days after a death. If there has been a coronial enquiry it may take around five days. If the death is in a hospital or nursing home, the facility will arrange the forms for the funeral director. If the death was in hospital, staff may also ask permission to carry out an autopsy. When someone dies due to an accident, police must be notified so a coroner can decide if an autopsy is in order. More people are considering cremation but, if you choose to be buried, a grave plot can be ordered by the funeral director. If a family already owns a grave plot, the grave may need to be reopened.
