Direct Cremation

The main benefit of a Direct Cremation is that it does enable the funeral costs to be reduced by over £1,000. The Direct Package provides everything required for a dignified cremation but without a service at the crematorium or any mourners in attendance. Naturally all our professional services are included. We will bring the deceased into our care, handle all arrangements and liaisons with third parties as well as giving you our full support both during and after the funeral.

If you have a direct cremation but would like to have a service for family and friends then we can arrange for a celebrant to conduct a service at a time and place of your choosing, including evenings and weekends. Please contact us 01702 436000 for more information about this.
