Cremation Services

Cremation Services in Perth

For many different reasons, cremation services are more common than burials in Western Australia. For some people, there are cultural or religious reasons. Others wish to return the ashes to the country of origin or keep their loved ones nearby at home. Still, others choose cremations for budgetary reasons. Whatever the reason, cremations in Perth and across WA remain the choice of funeral for many.

What’s involved in Cremations in Perth?

It’s important for families to know what’s involved when planning Cremation services in Perth, but do remember that your funeral director at Hetherington Funerals is able to take care of the process for you, to ensure it’s as simple and stress-free as possible. We’re here to take away some of the burden for you and your family.

The cremation process begins with the preparation of the body. It is common for families and friends to leave special tributes in the coffin which are cremated along with the body. The funeral director will notify you of what is and isn’t permissible.

The casket or coffin is then taken to the cemetery – this could be Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park, Karrakatta Cemetery, Fremantle Cemetery or more recently Rockingham Regional Memorial Park. It is at these locations that the crematoriums have been built and the physical cremation takes place. Some families choose to have a service prior to going to the cemetery, either a church or hall or chapel at the funeral home.

The third stage of the process takes place a few days after the cremation has occurred. It is then that the ashes become available for collection from the cemetery by the family. The collector must be the person who signed and authorised all the paperwork, unless a written note is written authorising somebody else.

The last stage involves the final placement of the ashes. Will they be interred at the cemetery, scattered to the winds, gently placed in the ocean, or kept at home in a personalised urn? This is the final decision the family will need to make as they seek to honour their loved one and lay them peacefully to rest.

Hetherington Funerals did an amazing job in helping organise and implement my Father in law’s Memorial Service. It was held at their Chapel in Maddington. We could not fault any of it, it was respectful, dignified and every thing my Mother in law requested. We had morning tea which was served beautifully and everything was well looked after and unobtrusively topped up (tea/coffee/orange juice etc.) Everything went so smoothly, not one hitch and the Chapel is such a calming, reflective place. I would highly recommend Hetherington Funerals to anyone. Definitely a 10 out of 10.
