Direct Cremations

We now offer direct cremations

What is a direct cremation? A direct cremation is ideal for those who would prefer a simpler funeral. A direct cremation is different to a traditional funeral as there is no funeral service beforehand and no one present at the cremation.

Your loved one will be collected from their place of rest and cared for with the upmost respect. Please note, chapel viewings are not offered with a direct cremation. On the day of cremation, they will be taken directly our local crematorium, in a specialised funeral vehicle. The direct cremation takes place without a procession beforehand and without the attendance of any family or additional mourners and no ceremony will take place.

Two working days later, the ashes are returned to the family or we can collect on your behalf, and we can offer to scatter the ashes in the garden of remembrance. You are welcome to attend the ashes scattering if you wish or arrange a memorial service at a later date.
