Increasing numbers of people are turning to direct cremation as an alternative to a conventional funeral.
Direct cremation and direct burial are for:
- People who, in line with their beliefs and values, do not feel they need to have a formal public ceremonial funeral at which the body of the person who has died is present. Most people who opt for direct cremation or direct burial could easily afford a traditional funeral, but they choose not to.
- People who cannot afford a traditional funeral. Because of simplicity, direct cremation is the cheapest way of disposing of a deceased.
To keep costs to the absolute minimum, you do not go to visit the person who has died in the funeral home. You do not choose the day and time of the cremation/burial. There is no hearse, no procession, and no service in the crematorium or at the graveside. The body goes straight off to be cremated or buried without ceremony and without anyone else there.
Direct cremation and direct burial do not stop you from having a farewell ceremony if you wish after the event. If you choose direct cremation or direct burial you can hold a memorial event of your own.
Included in the direct cremation price is removal, preparation, transportation of the deceased direct to the chosen crematorium at a time of our choosing, staff, simple coffin, and basic white gown. No viewings are included within this service.
