Welcome to Upright Burials

Upright Burials provides Australians with a proven alternative in burials that is simple, natural, and economical.

Our burial approach is distinctive in a number of ways as outlined below:

  1. It is environmentally friendly and ecologically sustainable.
  2. The body is placed in a vertical position in a biodegradable body bag.
  3. The burial method uses a far simpler and safer approach that removes the OH&S issues and labour costs associated with traditional horizontal burial.

The burial service includes pick up, administration, burial preparation, and burial for a single, one-time fee of $3250* (including GST).

If you intend to use our service for an upright burial, please register your details.

Each site is secure forever.

As Kurweeton Road Cemetery is kept in a natural state, there are no individual headstones or grave markers. Family and friends are provided with the exact location of the grave and are welcome to visit at any time.  Details of the deceased are recorded on a plaque at the cemetery's entrance.
