Cheap cremations are a popular option after the passing of a loved one.
In fact, three-quarters of all services were cremations in 2020, a figure which has remained consistent in recent years.
And with cremations rising in popularity, direct cremations have also become a more popular option.
There are plenty of different factors that go into choosing whether to opt for direct cremation, traditional cremation, or funeral service.
Whether it’s your loved one’s wishes, cost, convenience or environmental impact, there’s a lot that goes into that decision.
One of the biggest benefits of cremation is its affordability. The average cost of a cremation in the UK is significantly lower than the average cost of a funeral. In 2020, the average cost of a funeral was over £900, while cremations were much lower at around £6,000 – and many direct cremations are under £1,000.
In fact, at We Are Direct Cremations, our direct cremations start at just £1050.
Direct cremations, also known as simple cremations, are the cheapest type of cremation.
While it might not be easy to figure out what you want to do, our goal is to make it as simple as possible to consider your options.
Direct cremation is a cheap cremation option that suits many people because of the flexibility it offers. The process works as follows:
We collect your loved one ready for cremation. We’ll then cremate them without any funeral services or visitation, which takes away the higher cost elements of a traditional cremation such as the service or memorial. It’s a great option for those who are looking for a cheap and simple cremation so that they can hold a memorial service in their own time.
At We Are Direct Cremations, we specialise in direct cremations.
We come to you and collect your loved one, carry out the cremation and then return their ashes to you within ten days.
A direct cremation gives you the freedom to decide what you want to do in terms of service, memorial or scattering of ashes in your own time.
Deciding On A Cremation
Many people aren’t aware that there are a variety of options when it comes to cremation, depending on what you’re looking for.
For some people, the flexibility of direct cremations means that you have much more freedom to do things in your own time. Perhaps family members that live abroad can have more time to arrange travel to a memorial service that’s held later rather than immediately, and it might also give you the opportunity to arrange something that’s a fitting and personal tribute to your loved one.
They’re not necessarily for everyone, though, and if you’re looking for a more traditional cremation service that includes a service so that people can attend, we’re here to help with that too.
And when it comes to traditional services, there are plenty of different choices you can make, whether you’re looking to keep costs down or whether you have specific requirements, we have options to suit everyone.
One thing we’ll always ensure at We Are Direct Cremations is that you don’t have to compromise between cost and quality – we offer a cheap service that still delivers the quality you want and expect for your loved one.
Our goal is to make it as smooth as possible by taking the pressure of organising the details of the service to adhere to the wishes of you and your loved one.
