Direct Funeral


What is a Direct Funeral?

A Direct Funeral is a cremation that’s perfect for those that don’t want or need a ceremony or service of any kind before cremation.

A few days prior to the funeral, your loved one will be collected from their place of rest and then cared for in our mortuary. Then we’ll take them directly to the crematorium on the cremation day in one of our custom made funeral vehicles. The direct cremation will then take place without any mourners by a qualified chapel attendant.
