What is a Direct Cremation?

Your loved one will receive professional care from our experienced team from collection through to the day of the cremation, and we assure you that our services will be carried out with dignity and respect at all times.

How Much Does a Direct Funeral Cost?

A direct funeral includes professional funeral care whilst your loved one is at our funeral home, followed by an unattended cremation service. As this is the simplest funeral service we offer, it is also the most affordable with costs starting from just £568.
