Direct Cremations

Direct cremations are becoming more popular, with families preferring to celebrate the life of their loved one without the formalities of a traditional funeral. Direct cremations are also known as a basic cremation, a cremation without ceremony, or an unattended cremation.

Direct cremations are an increasingly popular option for families who prefer to celebrate the life of their loved one outside of the traditional formalities of a funeral service. Direct cremations are also known as “basic cremation” or “unattended cremation” as they are typically done without any family, friends or relatives present. 

How Does Direct Cremation Work?

Direct cremations are very simple and are typically chosen by those who prefer to celebrate the life of a lost one in their own way. You can arrange your own service, celebration or any other memorial that better suits you or the preferences of your loved one.

How it Works


We will collect your loved one from the place of passing or local hospital and transfer them into our care, where they will be treated and prepared.


We will complete all of the necessary paperwork and liaise with third parties such as crematoriums, doctors and coroners, to arrange a date and time for the cremation.


We then safely transport your loved one to the crematorium in one of our non-ceremonial vehicles for their cremation. Your loved ones' ashes will be returned to you within 7 working days.


The total package cost for our direct cremation is £1200. This includes collection and transportation. If you have any questions about our process, please get in touch.
