A direct cremation is a cremation with no service and without anyone in attendance. It is a simple and affordable option that allows the flexibility to hold a memorial or service at a later date and at a location of your choosing without involving the funeral director.

How a direct cremation works
Transportation and cremation
Your loved one is carefully transported, via a mortuary, to the crematorium where the cremation is carried out.
Urns can be chosen from the standard urn to a range of designs. The ashes of your loved one will be returned in an urn of your choice.
Hold a service or memorial
Direct cremation allows family and friends to honour their loved one in an informal setting at a time and place that suits their needs.
After the cremation, close family and friends may choose to directly scatter the ashes at a location meaningful to their loved one.
Simple and cheap
Direct cremations are a simple and cheap option – but no less meaningful or respectful.
No funeral needed
Some people simply do not want a funeral service. A direct cremation honours their wishes.
