Burial is generally more expensive than Cremation only when the purchase of a new grave is required. The cost difference is marginal when compared with the re-opening of an existing grave. There are additional costs incurred with Cremation when the ashes are to be interred in a Columbarium Wall or Garden of Remembrance. We are pleased to offer guidance on the cost of all of these options.
There are Cremation Forms which need to be completed by the attending Doctor and approved by the Medical Referee. We will take care of all of this paperwork on your behalf.
The Ashes will be ready within three to four days of the Cremation taking place and we are pleased to assist with all necessary arrangements regarding interment in a Columbarium Wall, Garden of Remembrance or Family Grave or, alternatively, the ashes can be returned to the family in an Urn or Casket.
There are four Crematoria located in Dublin; Mount Jerome, Newlands Cross, Glasnevin, and Dardistown. Please see our Crematoria Section for details.
