Direct Cremations

What happens at an Unattended Direct Funeral carried out by us?

Unattended direct funerals through us are subject to our standard high levels of care, all deceased are brought into our care and provided with a basic level of hygienic treatment, a suitable coffin and dressed in a gown. You do not visit the person who has died at our funeral home. You do not choose the day and time of the cremation. There is no hearse, no procession, and no service in the crematorium although we can play a piece of music of your choosing on entry to the crematorium chapel. The cremation takes without ceremony and without anyone else in attendance except our own and the crematorium staff.

Ashes can be scattered at the crematorium or returned to us for your collection within a week of the funeral taking place.

No other services can be added to the Direct Cremation.
