The new way to funeral
is cremation-first memorials.

We've reinvented the funeral to allow for better goodbyes.

Traditionally, funerals happen before the cremation occurs. This means traditional funerals are rushed, generally limited to funeral parlours - and always expensive. That was true for us. So, we decided to fix it. Our cremation-first memorials allow you the time and space to say farewell as they would have wanted - big or small - at a fraction of the price of traditional funerals.

We conduct the cremation first and, if you wish, arrange a memorial service after the cremation.

Our cremation service is simple, dignified and trusted.  Their wishes - and your well-being - is our only priority.  If you want a memorial, we'll arrange that for you - the choice is always yours.

We’ll collect
your loved one.

We arrange collection of your loved one from their place of passing and transport them to one of our trusted crematorium partners.

Frequently asked questions.

How can I be certain I will get the correct ashes back?

We take this responsibility very seriously, and the process to ensure this happens is closely regulated. Before cremation, an ID number is assigned and stamped on a metal disk – this then accompanies your loved one throughout the cremation process, so we always know who is who.

Can I choose to not have the ashes returned?

You may request to not have the ashes returned after the cremation. If that is your wish, we will require a signature as confirmation. We can then scatter or dispose of the ashes on your behalf.

How are the ashes returned?

This will vary with each state, but in the majority of metropolitan areas we will hand deliver the ashes back to your family. We can also mail the ashes or you can collect from our local service provider. Please note we require a signature for all return of ashes to ensure they are successfully delivered. You’re also welcome to personally collect the ashes from the Crematorium if you prefer.

Who do I have to notify that someone has passed away?

There are a number of institutions and people you should contact to ensure a person’s estate is effectively closed. Our team is here to help you with that, and we’ve also built a comprehensive checklist to help you navigate through the estate administration process.

When and how do I receive a death certificate?

From the time of cremation, we typically advise a wait time of 3 weeks. At times it can take longer if there is a delay in processing by the state authority. If there is a long delay, we will actively follow up on your behalf.

Why do I need a death certificate?

Each state in Australia has its own guidelines which tell you how to go about registering a death. Typically you’ll need a death certificate to cancel bills, bank accounts, utilities and administer other parts of the estate.

Are you able to collect anytime?

Yes we collect anytime day or night. Sometimes we will be dictated by the location of collection, for example certain hospitals will have dedicated collection times that we must adhere to. Needless to say, we will always collect as soon as possible – and there are never any out of hours hidden fees.

Can I call someone or have someone call me to talk through the process?

Absolutely. In fact, we encourage it. You can call our 24 hour line – 1800 071 176 anytime. We have arrangers on hand to walk you through the process and answer any questions you have. Even if Bare is not right for you, feel free to give us a call, we’d be more than happy to recommend a great funeral director who can help you with a more traditional service.
