We do this by redistributing your budget into the things that make the biggest impact and keeping our overheads down, so we can pass those savings onto you. This often means that our services are 20-30% cheaper than those arranged by more well-known funeral brands.

When arranging a funeral through Rite of Passage Funerals, we provide you with an itemised price list so there are no hidden costs or surprises down the track, staying true to our commitment to price transparency. 

Due to the bespoke nature of our services, we can’t provide you with exact prices without talking to you first, but we can tell you that the average cost of a Rite of Passage Funeral service is $8,999 – inclusive of cremation fees, location, flowers, catering for the wake, ceremony, styling and more. Note: burials are more expensive due to the cost of burial plots.

We can work with all budgets and we’re committed to educating you on the most practical places to spend your money so you can create an end-of-life event worthy of your person… without the hefty price tag. 

To make this process as seamless as possible, we’ve created a simple and affordable basics package that covers the essentials. After you’ve met with one of our experienced funeral directors and know all your options, you can curate the service according to your needs and budget, adding on as you go.
