Direct Funeral Service

Direct Funeral Service

A direct funeral service is an increasingly popular option for many families.

As opposed to traditional funeral services, a direct funeral service doesn’t involve a ceremony.

It’s known as a direct cremation or simple cremation usually, and it allows you the flexibility to choose a service that suits you.

The direct funeral service is simple, easy, and hassle-free, and works as follows:

  1. You get in touch with us and let us know what you want.
  2. We collect your loved one.
  3. We carry out the cremation, which can be done either with or without you in attendance.
  4. We return the ashes to you in just a few days OR if you wish, we can scatter them in our beautiful memorial park.
  5. You hold the send-off or memorial service that reflects your loved one, without any restrictions.

We know how difficult it can be to say goodbye to a loved one and we want you to be able to say it in a fitting way.

It’s why everything we do is designed to be as compassionate and helpful as possible – because we know just how important it is.

Direct funeral services are cheaper than traditional funeral services because they don’t involve all that comes with a traditional ceremony. Rather than spending money on a viewing, formal ceremony and things such as a coffin, embalming and other key components of a funeral, you can focus on what matters to you.

Direct Funeral Services

For many families, the convenience of being able to hold a memorial service when they choose, rather than relying on availability and necessity of timing can be a deciding factor.

It might be that you have family members who live far away, perhaps even abroad, and arranging travel for them is important.

Having a direct cremation allows you the freedom to have more choice around the ceremony or memorial service you choose to hold, if any at all.

And for some, the fact that it’s an environmentally friendly option can be important.

But more than anything, families love the freedom to create a truly personal tribute to their loved one. Whether that’s scattering ashes, a memorial service that truly reflects them as a person and the life they lived or simply having all of your friends and family present, it can be essential.

At We Are Direct Cremations, we’re here to help you choose the option that is most fitting for you and your loved one.

Whatever option is right for you, it’s important that you take the time to decide and once you’ve made that choice, we’re here to help.
