Sometimes there are cultural or religious influences to consider. It is always worth remembering though, if you do have a preference, one way or the other, to let at least one other family member know of your wishes. Quite often if a person has deceased unexpectedly, the family is at a loss as to what their loved one would have wanted which just makes arranging the funeral a little more difficult because of the uncertainty. We have our Pre-Planning Books available containing lots of information to help your decision-making process. We are happy to post out one or more of our books if you wish, just call our office and we will get them to you.
In the Townsville area we have access to the Belgian Gardens Cemetery and Woongarra Crematorium.
For further information on Cemetery rules and regulations you can visit the Townsville City Council website.

Investing in a Funeral Bond is one of the smartest financial decisions you will ever make regardless of your age or stage in life, but particularly if you receive pension benefits. You have the security of knowing you have provided for future costs, and the comfort that you are protecting loved ones from a potential financial burden.
We recommend various brands of Funeral Bonds, which provide excellent customer service which in turn provides families with peace of mind.
