OUR ALL INCLUSIVE FUNERAL PACKAGE
We here at Australian Orthodox funerals believe that honesty and respect are pinnacles of our service. We don't believe in hidden costs or fees. So, we have put together a package that encompasses all aspects of a traditional Orthodox funeral at one fixed cost.
You can customise as much or as little as you would like. This is the basic, essentials of an Orthodox funeral.
Elegant Richmond Coffin
Our starting coffin is an elegant Richmond, flat lid coffin.
Available in 3 different woods:
Rosewood, Maple or Teak
You can, of course, choose any one of our wide verity of coffins we offer and just pay the difference in price.
Jerusalem Death Shroud
We adorn your loved one in their coffin with a Jerusalem death shroud. Purchased from the church in Jerusalem.
Icons and Crucifix
We provide your loved one of an icon of your choosing, and gently place it in their hands once they're in their coffin. We also add a Crucifix to the lapel of your loved one, as well as 3 candles and incense.
We also can provide larger icons to be buried along with them upon request.
We have a strong working partnership with one of Melbourne's biggest and best florists, Grandiflora, this allows us access to stunning flowers and arrangements.
We provide you with a book of options, and you're able to choose what you like up to $350.
You're welcome to spend above, and we just subtract the $350 from the final flower bill.
Grave Side Service
We provide the wheat, wine and oil required for the grave side service.
Service is conducted by the priest or celebrant.
We provide up to $900 in fees to the church and Priest. Alternatively, we arrange for a celebrant and Chapel hire.
Don't be caught out by other funeral directors that will not disclose this payment, as you could be left to pay for it separately from their fees.
Professional Services Fees
This is the payment allows us to keep our operations going and maintain our staff.
