Yes it is possible to receive cost effective and Affordable Funeral Services for both cremation and burial. Swanborough Funerals are renowned for providing high level professional funeral care without the high price tag.
Affordable Funeral Services and Funeral Alternatives
Firstly, Swanborough Funerals take pride specialising in sourcing affordable products and funeral alternatives in funeral care. We do not compromise on quality. These include alternative coffin/casket options and floral options. We use cost effective ways to personalise the funeral service. Swanborough Funerals depict the unique character of the deceased through symbols, music, service sheets, DVD presentations and other memorial products to create a beautiful tribute.
Affordable Funeral Services and Alternative Funeral Venue Options
Secondly, Swanborough Funerals have alternative funeral venue options for families. We are in connection with a number of churches and community organisations in Brisbane who encourage us to use their fully equipped chapels during the week when they are not in use. Often churches are able to assist in providing refreshments through their auxiliary. This brings in needed funds for the church or community organisation as they continue to service our community. It decreases funeral venue and catering charges.
Swanborough Funerals have an excellent working relationship with a number of wedding chapels during the week. They are generally only utilised for weddings on the weekends. We receive substantially discounted funeral chapel hire rates to use these beautifully presented, well equipped and tranquil locations to hold funeral or memorial ceremonies. Another way we are able to offer affordable funeral services.
Swanborough Funerals also take pride in being one of the few funeral operators equipped to offer home funeral services to families. This saves a great deal on venue hire and catering. The amount of home funeral services we have conducted over the past twelve months has grown substantially. We have had the honour of experiencing truly beautiful and touching funeral ceremonies conducted in the family home or garden setting. All the alternatives offer affordable funeral services without the time pressure associating with hiring the commercial crematorium chapels.
Family Owned Boutique Funeral home
Thirdly, Swanborough Funerals are a family owned and operated boutique funeral home. We have been caring for families in the Greater Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast areas for 14 years, without the high overheads experienced by the larger funeral homes. Our families are not a number on a spread sheet and we do not answer to shareholders or investors. Our focus is not on profit margins and market share. We are able to focus on what we do well at and are passionate about. Swanborough Funerals provide uncompromising funeral service, focusing our full attention to every detail of funeral care for the deceased and their families in their time of need.
We do not pressure sell and our staff do not receive commission on “bringing in” a funeral or up-selling coffins and caskets. Our staff are cert IV qualified funeral directors, funeral celebrants and cert IV qualified embalmers (mortician). Our funeral and mortuary staff are respected and remunerated accordingly through the wages they receive.
Swanborough Funerals have a funeral cost calculator on our website. There are no “nasty surprises” when we meet with you to organise the funeral. By using the funeral cost calculator you will receive an accurate quotation. Most times when our staff meet with you the final funeral quotation is less. Our staff are trained to offer cost saving alternatives. The families we care for find this such a relief.

Swanborough Funerals do not spend large amounts of funds on advertising campaigns and rely on word of mouth and written referrals. This is another way we are able to keep our professional service fees down.
