Direct Funeral


 If you require a direct funeral, please make our staff aware of this as arrangements are by telephone appointment. 

Why choose a direct funeral?

 Direct cremation and burial are generally for: 

• People who do not feel they need or want to have a formal, public, ceremonial funeral. Most people who opt for direct cremation or burial could easily afford a traditional funeral, but they choose not to in line with their personal beliefs or values. 

• It is a good option for those who may struggle to fund a bigger service. As this type of service eliminates many of the costs normally associated with a funeral.

What happens at a direct Funeral?

You do not visit the person who has died at our 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 in attendance except the crematorium or cemetery staff. 

In the case of a direct cremation the ashes can be scattered at the crematorium or returned to you. 

In the case of a direct burial the interment takes place in a public grave without memorialisation. 

No other services can be added to the Direct Funeral
