Funeral Care by Clarke Family Funerals

Cremation funeral services are the most common funeral choice made by South Australians when it comes to deciding what to do with the body of a loved one who has passed. Clarke Family Funerals offer a large range of personalised cremation funeral services all over Adelaide.

Funeral services and memorial options

A cremation or burial service can be a highly personal service..

Cremation funeral services may be held before or after the cremation has taken place. Most families have the coffin with the body of your loved one present. This service is known as a traditional funeral service.   

A cremation memorial is held after the body has been cremated and is generally less formal than a traditional service funeral. A memorial can act similarly to a funeral service, but instead of having the body present, the cremated remains will be present. 

A burial funeral can be held graveside, chapel followed by burial, church followed by burial or a simple unattended burial service.

Legal requirements when preparing cremation services or memorials

There are many legal requirements when it comes to preparing for a cremation or burial. Clarke Family Funerals can assist you with planning for the service and arranging all the required permits, medical certificates and all other requirements.

Religious attitudes to cremation

There are some religious groups that practice cremation and some that will forbid its use. Religions such as Muslims and Greek Orthodox and Orthodox Jews will not cremate in line with their beliefs. Sikhs, Hindus and Buddhists will practice cremation. Most Christian religions will support either burial or being cremated.
