Simple Cremation

At State of Grace we understand that when someone close to you has died you feel compelled to provide a funeral. We also know that a funeral is often a very stressful experience for families to deal with, aside from the pain of losing someone they love.

It is not necessary to have an expensive funeral – choosing a more affordable option of a simple cremation service is becoming increasingly popular for a number of reasons, including:

  • Significantly more affordable
  • Eliminates time pressures
  • Environmentally friendly (use of less resources)
  • Gives the option of organising a meaningful Memorial Service with the ashes at a later date.


We transfer the deceased person to our premises where we can dress them in the clothes that you have chosen, place them in a simple casket, and take them to be cremated. We attend to all necessary paperwork. Two days later, the ashes are ready for us to collect, and we will return them to you within the Auckland region.

This is at a total cost of $3,350 (inclusive of gst) plus the cost of the Doctors Fee which can vary from $80 and could be up to $300. There are extra charges for viewings.

The price does NOT include anything extra such as flowers, newspaper notices, or for a service.

When you choose a simple cremation your loved one will still be in safe and caring hands, no matter how much you spend.
