What is a direct cremation?
A direct cremation is a modern alternative to a traditional cremation funeral. The cremation takes place completely separately from the personal farewell and our families use the ashes urn or a favourite photograph as their focal point for remembrance. It’s perfect for people who don’t like funerals.
Here’s what’s included in our £1,195 core service:
- Expert guidance and support
- Collection from hospital or Coroner’s mortuary
- A solid pine eco-coffin
- Transfer to the crematorium in our specialist ambulance
- Cremation fees for an unattended cremation at a venue of our choice
- Doctors’ fees (if these apply)
- Hand delivery or scattering of the ashes
The cremation process is exactly the same as for more traditional services – everyone is cremated individually and the ashes (cremated remains) are carefully collected at the end.Read more
