Direct Cremation

About Direct Cremation

Some people like to do things differently and do not require a traditional funeral service and choose direct cremation, often replacing this with a memorial service or event following the cremation.

Direct cremation is the simplest way to achieve this and is the most cost-effective option. It is normally unattended but should you choose to be present for the committal at the crematorium, we can organise this. The ashes will be returned to you following the cremation.

Cremations will take place at a local crematorium of our choosing and will often take place early in the morning.

Our Promise

Unlike other direct cremation packages:

We will always respectfully transport your loved to crematorium using a hearse only and on the agreed date and time of cremation, not the day/evening before.

Your loved one will stay local at either our Spring Lane, Radcliffe or Herbert Street, Little Lever branch and will be cremated at one of our surrounding local crematoriums, not taken to another part of the country some miles away for cremation.

Because the cremation will be local, your loved one’s ashes will be available in the days following the cremation, not weeks, months after the cremation.

We will always have enough bearers to respectfully take your loved one into the crematorium.
