When someone dies
At Millingtons we are continually striving to provide the best possible service to you. We are committed to creating a peaceful and calming environment and endeavour to:
- Correctly interpret your needs and wishes
- Have full knowledge of all legal requirements and complete all necessary documentation.
- Liaise with clergy or celebrant and coordinate requirements for all denominations.
- Provide a private ambulance for transfer of your loved one into our care
At some time in our lives death will touch us all. While no one wants to dwell on the subject, some understanding of what occurs can help you be prepared for its eventuality.
Pre-Paid & Pre-Arranged Funerals
While we all want to shield our loved ones, there is one thing we can't protect them from - the inevitability of our own passing. We plan ahead for so many events - holidays, weddings, birth etc, yet because most of us do not like to think about death, many people avoid making important decisions in advance about our funeral.
By planning and pre-paying your funeral and cemetery arrangements in advance you can be sure that your funeral wishes are carried out exactly as you want and that your family members are protected from the financial burden of paying for your funeral.
We call it "Peace of Mind" - for you and your family.
In January 2008 Millingtons commenced operation of its first cemetery - Cambridge Family Church and Cemetery, a small historically listed site.
On the 1 July 2008 Millingtons became owners of East Risdon and Kingston Cemeteries and exclusive management responsibilities for Cornelian Bay Cemetery.
Having these cemeteries as a part of the Millingtons organisation allows us to ensure we provide you and your family with every option in funeral and cemetery service. We can tailor your needs ensuring your expectations are met at an affordable price.
Millingtons offer a range of online services to assist you in sending condolence messages and material or to view remotely a service for those that can not physically attend.
