What is a Simple Cremation?
Things have changed in recent times and direct cremations have become increasingly popular. David Bowie being the most recent person who decided to use this option. Some people find that the day of the funeral can be traumatic and upsetting. A direct cremation can be an alternative to this. Some families may wish to hold a thanksgiving or memorial service at a Church or Chapel. Some families have held a party to celebrate the person’s life. These are just some examples of what some families have done. We would me than happy to help you arrange any of these.
With a direct cremation everything is included in one price. Bringing the person who has passed away into our care, paying any doctors fees, preparing them, providing a wooden coffin, use of our chapel of rest and transportation to the crematorium. The main differences are there is no visiting of the person who has passed away, (this can be arranged at extra cost) no service and the coffin is taken to a local crematorium discreetly and all details are kept private. Everything else is still carried out with the care, dignity and respect that you would expect.
The persons remains can then be either stored securely at our premises until they are ready to be collected or collected within two days of the cremation taking place. There are many options to lay your loved ones remains to rest. They could be buried in cemetery or natural burial ground, kept at home or scattered at a place that was special to that person. Scatter tubes and caskets can be provided at an extra cost if required.
