Direct Cremation Services 

Our Direct Cremation services take care of every essential aspect of a funeral without the need for a ceremony or for a traditional service. We handle every step of the process for you, from choosing the crematorium to caring for your loved one in the few days prior to the cremation.

Direct Cremation Based In The UK

A direct cremation, or unattended cremation, is the perfect solution for you or your family if you prefer something simpler. It ensures a respectful, dignified cremation without the expense of traditional funeral services. Having a direct cremation is slightly different from a traditional funeral cremation, in that there is no ceremony beforehand, and no mourners in attendance.

Care Of Your Loved One

We take care of your loved one at our specialist facilities a few days prior to the cremation.

Specialised Transport To The Crematorium

We ensure dignified and respectful transport on the day of the cremation, in our private funeral vehicle.

Scattering Or Return Of The Ashes

We can arrange to scatter the ashes in the garden of remembrance, or return these to you upon request at an additional cost.

What Do Our Direct Cremation Services Include?

Within our unattended cremation services, we will collect your loved one a few days prior to the cremation, and transport them to our specialist facilities where they will be exquisitely cared for by our specialist team.

On the day of cremation, we will take your loved one to the selected crematorium in our private ambulance. Accompanied by a chapel attendant, the cremation will take place without a ceremony and with no family or friends present. We will however wait in attendance to ensure that everything runs smoothly and with respect.

Once your loved one's ashes are ready for collection, we can arrange for these to be scattered by ourselves in the garden of remembrance, or returned to you upon request, at an additional cost.

Why Choose A Direct Cremation?

Opting for direct cremation services means you get the chance to organise a memorial at a later date in your own time, allowing yourself and your family to honour your loved one in the way that feels best for you. We are based in Essex, but cover the whole of the UK.
As direct cremation providers, we also know that sometimes traditional funeral services are not what a family wants, and wanted to ensure we were able to offer every option to families during the passing of a loved one.
Our affordable direct cremations can be arranged with our experienced team over the telephone, and our specialists will support you every step of the way. We also offer home appointments in order to provide support with paperwork if required.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of having a direct cremation service?

Our services are designed to meet the requirements of each family as individuals, because we know that everyone wants different things and sometimes the traditional route of funeral services offered by funeral homes is not desired or accessible.

Having a direct cremation removes the additional expense of traditional funeral homes, as we do not have to include the brick and mortar costs, commission or upselling additions for staff, nor do we pay for expensive funeral vehicles.

We provide professional, respectful services that are of the same quality as you would expect from a traditional funeral director, just without the additional expense.

Will there be any other costs?

Our packages are specifically designed to cover all cremation fees required. However additional urns or specialist items can be purchased in addition to the current packages - but these are optional.

How long does the process take?

Usually the process takes 14 days from the time you instruct us as to which package you would like to proceed with. However this can sometimes differ and end up being quicker or slightly longer depending on various factors, including the coroner's office, and the schedules of the crematoriums that we work with.
