What does a direct cremation service involve?

A direct cremation service (sometimes referred to as an unattended funeral) is when someone is cremated without a formal funeral service. 

For many people, choosing a direct cremation service means having a simple funeral “without the fuss”; why have an elaborate church service or limousine escort if that’s not what the person who died wanted?

While there may be less traditional funereal fanfare involved, the person who’s died is still looked after with care, compassion and respect by our dedicated team.
