Direct Cremation

Our Direct Cremation Package is designed for those who do not wish to hold a funeral service and simply wish us to make the necessary arrangements for the Cremation of the deceased.

We recognise that in the current circumstances, people may be shielding or unable to travel to attend a funeral, and are opting for the cremation to take place without a ceremony, and plan to arrange a memorial service or family gathering at a later date.

Our package combines the simplicity and low cost of direct cremation with the peace of mind of using a local funeral director. This allows you to minimise transport of the deceased, gives the ability to know the actual date of the cremation if you wish, and the ability to collect the cremated remains within a week of the cremation if you wish to do so. This package cost is specific to our use of a crematorium of our choice – usually Amber Valley Crematorium – allowing us to keep our costs to a minimum.

The necessary paperwork can be completed electronically by email, or if you prefer, by appointment at any of our funeral homes during normal working hours. For more information please download this document, or contact any of our funeral homes.

If you are looking to take out a pre-payment plan for a direct cremation, our Direct Cremation Funeral Plan is available. More information can be found in our Perfect Choice Funeral Plan Brochure, which can be downloaded from our Downloadable Guides page.
