Direct Cremation 

£950 Plus disbursements

A direct cremation or just cremation service, has become increasingly popular, a non-attended service,  avoids the need for a more traditional funeral, it gives you the flexibility to hold a memorial service or commemorate the deceased's passing in a way that you choose. 

 

A different approach to a funeral in church, or at a chapel attended by mourners as it seems to have been for many years. Your loved one is still treated with the same dignity, care and respect, though the coffin is conveyed to the crematorium in a hearsette or private ambulance with no family or friends, only the funeral staff attend the cremation.

The majority of our clients who are choosing this type of service do so not only because it is by far the least expensive option, you will save over £2000plus on a traditional funeral offering. 

 

Whilst at the same time it may be preferable to you and your family, or may have been the wish of the deceased. Perhaps it might be down to the geography of where friends and family live, which may be some distance apart or overseas, for this reason also it might not be practical or convenient to gather for a short service, or quite simply due to views and beliefs people see that it is not always necessary too attend a funeral.
