Direct Cremation Service
Direct Cremation is also known as a no service no attendance funeral, a bare cremation, an unattended cremation, or a cremation only. This option has been rising in popularity, especially in the last couple of years since COVID-19 restrictions were imposed, and offers the best price for cremation.
The reasons for a direct cremation are varied. For some, the cost is a factor. Because a cremation only no service removes the traditional ceremonies that surround a funeral it is much more budget-friendly and offers the cheapest cremation. Others are more environmentally conscious and looking for an eco-friendly funeral option. Simplicity also plays a factor, as the death of a friend or family member is a confusing time, with many not wanting to make too many decisions - or to spend time with loved ones and grieve in their own way.
On the return of their loved ones ashes personal memorial is favoured with family and friends, to celebrate their life in the way they want to, have a scattering ceremony, or even have keepsakes such as jewelery made from the ashes.
