Direct cremations

We now offer direct cremations.

A direct cremation is a cremation without a funeral service, so family and friends do not attend, and there is no minister or flowers, etc. It's a simpler and less costly alternative to a full funeral service. Our experienced and compassionate staff will still treat the cremation with respect and dignity, and support families.

Costs are available on the cremation charges page. These charges do not include any additional funeral director fees.
