Cremation Without Ceremony

A Cremation Without Ceremony, sometimes known as a direct cremation, is for those who would prefer a simpler choice for their funeral. It’s different from a traditional funeral as there is no funeral service and no one present at the cremation.

It’s for those, who for lots of reasons, prefer not to have a funeral service. This option of a simple, straightforward cremation is now being chosen by a growing number of people.

A Cremation without Ceremony includes:

  • Organising a doctor to complete the necessary paperwork
  • Collecting your loved one from the hospital, along with their preparation and care until the day of the funeral
  • Transportation to the crematorium in the funeral vehicle
  • The safe return of ashes to the family upon request
  • Doctor’s Fee and Cremation Fee included
  • Payment Terms: Full Payment before funeral

Total Funeral Cost £1295.00

The Traditional Funeral has more to offer. You can choose to take this option in its entirety or you add and remove elements from this option, this funeral service is often referred to as a tailored funeral ceremony and the price will be adjusted accordingly.
