Why Choose Cremation?
Cremation allows for flexibility in memorial services, is often more affordable, and provides an eco-friendly option. It's a choice many Sheffield residents make for various reasons, such as cultural preferences, environmental concerns, or personal beliefs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is cremation more affordable than traditional burial?
Cremation is often a more cost-effective choice compared to traditional burial. In a traditional burial, you need to consider the cost of a burial plot, a casket, a headstone, and the associated expenses like embalming. Cremation eliminates the need for these additional expenses, making it a more budget-friendly option for many families.
How do I choose an urn for the ashes?
At Fair Cost Funeral Directors, we offer a wide selection of urns to suit your preferences. You can choose from various materials, designs, and sizes. Whether you prefer a biodegradable urn that returns your loved one's ashes to the earth naturally, a decorative urn that can be displayed at home, or even keepsake urns to distribute among family members, we can help you find the perfect urn to honour your loved one's memory.
Can I witness the cremation process?
Yes, many crematoriums offer the option for family members to witness the start of the cremation process. This can provide a sense of closure and comfort to some individuals. If you wish to have a witnessing ceremony, we can make the necessary arrangements and guide you through the process.
What environmental benefits does cremation offer?
Cremation is often considered a more eco-friendly choice than traditional burial. Here's why:
Cremation does not require the use of embalming fluids, which can contain chemicals that are harmful to the environment.
Cremation takes up significantly less land space compared to traditional burials, which require dedicated burial plots.
It also doesn't contribute to the depletion of natural resources for casket construction or the production of headstones.
For those concerned about environmental impact, cremation is a greener alternative.
What options do I have for the ashes?
You have several options for the ashes following cremation:
Scattering: You can choose to scatter the ashes in a meaningful location, such as a garden, a favourite park, or even at sea.
Keeping in an Urn: Many families choose to keep the ashes in an urn, which can be displayed at home or placed in a niche in a columbarium.
Memorial Jewelry: Ashes can also be turned into memorial jewellery, allowing you to carry a part of your loved one with you wherever you go.
Burying the Ashes: Some individuals prefer to bury the urn in a cemetery, providing a designated place for remembrance.
Fair Cost Funeral Directors can help you explore these options and select the one that best aligns with your wishes and the wishes of your loved one.
