How to Arrange an Adelaide Cremation Service

We’ve previously written about the various considerations that arise when arranging a cremation. Funerals – whether burials or cremations – require families to make a number of arrangements with which they are frequently unfamiliar. These arrangements are made more difficult by the fact that important decisions often need to be made within a short timeframe. Getting in touch with a funeral director can help take much of the stress out of the planning process as it allows you to rely on their experience and expertise. eziFunerals makes it easy to find the best funeral director to assist you.

Cremation Services in Adelaide, South Australia- Regulations

Regardless of where in Australia a cremation takes place, the cremation process will involve a number of fairly routine steps. However, there are additional rules for cremations that vary from state to state. In South Australia, cremations are governed by the Burial and Cremation Act 2013 and the Burial and Cremation Regulations 2014. Under this legislation, the following rules apply to Adelaide cremations:
  • for a cremation to occur, the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages must issue a cremation permit;
  • if the personal representative, parent or child of the deceased objects to the deceased being cremated, the cremation must not take place unless the deceased directed in writing that their body be cremated;
  • after a cremation, the executor of the estate may determine whether the ashes are kept or disposed of;
  • it is an offence for a deceased to be cremated in a place other than a lawfully established crematorium.
