Upright Burials

When I die, I want my body to be buried in an environmentally friendly way. I’m very fortunate to have a cousin, Tony Dupleix in Camperdown, Victoria who runs a not-for-profit company that does Upright Buriels.

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).

    Good idea! I have done the paperwork for mine to be donated to the Body Farm which is the nearest I have come up with to it being put on a compost heap.

    Well done, Helen! Tony told me of some kind of network of similar burial services his business is working with. You might learn more from calling him.
