The Direct Choice

£1200 Including Disbursements*

A simple cremation separates the cremation from the funeral ceremony. No family or friends will be present at the crematorium and the ashes will be returned to you in a plain container so that you can organise a memorial or alternative celebration whenever, wherever and however you choose.

Direct cremations are not about cutting corners, but delivering a simple dignified option which allows the family to pay tribute to the person who has died in their own time and way, without the constraints of a church or crematorium service.

*Disbursements or third party costs are those which funeral directors have no control over but are paid out by them on behalf of clients. They include, amongst others, cremation or burial fees, doctor fees, minister or celebrant fees, newspaper notices and floral tributes. The full cost of this option is payable 24 hours before the day of the cremation.

Included in The Direct Choice fees:

We are proud to provide all families with assistance at a very difficult time, and want to give help to those who seek cremation without a service.

Unlike the online providers, we offer a personal, face-to-face, caring service at all times.

We will:

  • Collect from any location within a 50 mile radius.

  • Assist with all legal and medical paperwork.

  • Allow you to spend time with your loved one in our chapel of rest.

  • Ensure that you are provided with a date for the cremation in advance.

  • Convey your loved one to a LOCAL crematorium INDIVIDUALLY.

  • Return the cremated remains in a suitable container within 5 working days.
