Direct Cremation is a simple, dignified option in which your loved one is cremated without a funeral service or ceremony. Sometimes known as an unattended cremation. By removing the service, the family of the deceased or those responsible for arrangements can make substantial savings of between £2000 and £3000 compared to traditional funeral costs. The private cremation service is one of the most affordable send-offs around, and with this taken care of, you and your family have all the time in the world to decide what happens next. This option helps if you are working to a budget as the price for this all-inclusive service is £1195.

Direct Cremation is for those, who for lots of reasons, prefer not to have a funeral service. This option of a simple, straightforward cremation is now being chosen by a growing number of people as an alternative to a traditional burial or cremation.

It is a cremation without a service time or attendance, which includes the collection of the deceased in a suitable vehicle from place of death within normal office hours. Outside office hours a cost of £90 will be incurred. The provision of a standard coffin, all 3rd party costs and the cremated remains scattered in the Garden of Remembrance at the crematorium. Should you wish the ashes to be collected & returned to yourselves, this can be done for an additional fee of £95. 

Many people wish to hold their own private ceremonies or purchase a memorial and they use the savings to do so. For others, it is the wishes of the deceased to hold a no fuss cremation. Sometimes it’s simply too hard to gather all those who wish to attend at a specific location at a fixed time. In this instance, direct cremations offer more flexibility to organize a private ceremony at a time and location of your choosing. A direct cremation is also perfect for individuals who have no close family or haven’t made a financial provision in their will.
