A direct funeral is a type of funeral that does not involve a formal service. Your loved one is taken directly to the crematorium or cemetery for cremation or burial, without any ceremony or gathering of mourners.
Direct funerals are becoming increasingly popular for a number of reasons. They are often seen as a more affordable option than traditional funerals, and they can also be a more personal and meaningful way to say goodbye to a loved one.
If you are considering a direct funeral, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, you will need to make arrangements with a funeral director to collect the deceased person’s body and transport them to the crematorium or cemetery.
You will also need to choose a casket or urn, and you may want to make arrangements for scattering or burying the ashes.
You may also want to hold a memorial service or gathering after the cremation or burial, which can be a way for you and your loved ones to come together to remember the deceased person and celebrate their life.
Direct cremation (or direct funeral) is a simple and affordable option that’s becoming increasingly popular in the UK. The ashes are then given back to the family so they can choose how to remember their loved one at their own convenience.
Families that want to have a memorial service later on or who are searching for a more economical option frequently opt for direct cremation. Our direct cremation service at our Burntwood Crematorium includes all fees and paperwork. We also provide a variety of urns from which families can select to store the ashes of their loved ones.
Direct cremation has the advantage of being a straightforward and stress-free process.
The direct cremation process works as follows:
- You get in touch with us and let us know what you want.
- We collect your loved one.
- We carry out the cremation, which can be done either with or without you in attendance.
- We return the ashes to you in just a few days OR if you wish, we can scatter them in our beautiful memorial park.
- You hold the send-off or memorial service that reflects your loved one, without any restrictions.
