What is a Direct Cremation?

This is when family do not attend service for whatever reason or circumstance. Direct Cremations are becoming more popular as a more no-fuss funeral with the ashes returning to the family to do with as they wish.

Many people prefer this to a Traditional Funeral, as they can remember in their own way and in their own time, especially if they live far away.

The service would be conducted as if family present. Music to walk into deceased would be placed in chapel by the Funeral Director.

Curtains would be closed while music chosen by family is played, the Funeral Director would then bow and leave chapel.

Everything would be carried out with the dignity and respect that a family would expect.
