Fuss Free Funerals is Melbourne's most affordable direct or no service cremation funeral service provider.
What is a direct cremation? What is a no service cremation?
Well they are of course one and the same.
Essentially what is involved is the funeral home picking up the person who has passed, having them cremated and returning the ashes to them. No service, no viewing, no hearse, no flowers and so on and so forth.
A direct or no service cremation in Melbourne is the most affordable funeral available. People my say that a direct or no service cremation is Melbourne’s cheapest funeral. While we agree that a no service cremation or direct cremation is Melbourne’s most affordable funeral option, the service is for pragmatic people, for people who simply cannot or do not want to justify the exorbitant cost of a traditional funeral.
You may wonder why people use our services, as opposed to a more traditional funeral. We have found that not everyone wants to go to the somewhat elaborate measures of a traditional funeral. Indeed, many of the families who have used our services advised they did so because they felt there were other more appropriate ways to celebrate the life of their loved one.
Alternatively, many people cannot afford or justify the exorbitant costs of a traditional funeral. Our Direct Cremations are around 70% more affordable compared to our competitors; particularly when you include the additional costs they don't always tell you about up front.
Our all inclusive, no more to pay packages, include the following:
All Mortuary Fees. This includes absolutely everything such as dressing and preparing your loved one for the cremation. For instance, some people like to have their loved one dressed in a favourite football jumper or have makeup applied etc. Again, you would be surprised how these additional fees can significantly increase how much you're ultimately charged by other companies..
Death Certificate. We advise Births Deaths and Marriages of the passing of your loved one and apply and pay for the Death Certificate on your behalf. Often you will need this official document to finalise your loved ones affairs, inclusive of accessing their finances. Most other companies will charge for these other administrative tasks.
Coffin. It's not an expensive one, but it is made in Australia. We can provide more expensive coffins if you would prefer, but naturally there will be some additional costs.
Transportation to the Crematorium.
We will even arrange to do this at a time the suits you. For instance, many families like to say a prayer or light a candle at the appointed hour; and we won't charge any extra for this small inconvenience. We have known some companies charge as much as $500 for this service.
Crematorium / Cemetery fees. Regardless of the Funeral Director you employ to conduct your service, get a guarantee from them that these fess are included.
All Service Fees. This is often a hidden cost that again can result in a quoted price increasing significantly.
So, to arrange a funeral, free from fuss, simply pickup the phone and call.

After many years of working in the funeral industry I came to realise that many people prefer to celebrate the loss of a loved one independent of a traditional funeral ceremony and without the exorbitant fees; and thus Fuss Free Funerals was born.
