A traditional funeral refers to the actual ceremony, often in a church, where the coffin is brought in, and there is a formal service.

Following the service, your loved one is either buried or cremated.

A direct cremation is just the “cremation” bit without the formal service, which makes it a lot more flexible and affordable.
