Easing the Financial Burden of Funerals

Losing a loved one is never easy, and planning a funeral can add an additional layer of stress to an already difficult time. Not only are you dealing with grief and emotional turmoil, but you’re also faced with the financial burden of arranging a funeral. At Alex Gow Funerals, we understand the challenges you’re facing, and we’re here to help ease the burden.


Throughout this article we explore several common avenues you can pursue to ease the financial burden of a funeral or cremation.  

Planning a Funeral on a Budget

Funeral costs can add up quickly, and it’s important to have a plan in place to ensure that you don’t overspend. At Alex Gow Funerals, we offer a range of funeral packages to suit different budgets and needs. Our funeral directors will work with you to create a personalised funeral that honours your loved one’s life, while also considering your financial situation.

Cremation or Burial

Choosing between cremation and burial is a personal decision that should be based on your loved one’s wishes, cultural and religious beliefs, and budget. At Alex Gow Funerals, we can help you make an informed decision by providing you with all the necessary information and resources. We can also assist you with organising the cremation or burial service, as well as any necessary permits and paperwork.

Pre-Planning a Funeral

Pre-planning a funeral is becoming increasingly popular, as it allows individuals to take control of their funeral arrangements and relieve their loved ones of the financial burden. At Alex Gow Funerals, we offer pre-planning services that allow you to plan your funeral in advance, so you can rest assured that your wishes will be carried out. Our funeral directors can guide you through the process, answering any questions you may have and providing you with peace of mind.

Financial Assistance

If you’re struggling to pay for a funeral, there are a number of financial assistance options available. At Alex Gow Funerals, we can provide you with information and resources on government schemes, such as the Funeral Assistance Program, as well as private funding options, such as funeral loans. We understand that everyone’s financial situation is unique, and we’re here to help you find the best solution for your needs.

Grief Support

Grief is a natural response to loss, and it’s important to have support during this difficult time. At Alex Gow Funerals, we offer grief support services to help you cope with the loss of your loved one. Our funeral directors can provide you with information and resources on grief counselling, support groups, and other services that may be beneficial to you.

At Alex Gow Funerals, we can help you navigate this process by providing you with information on the different crematoriums and cemeteries in South East Queensland.
