Direct Cremation

A Direct Cremation is an alternative to a traditional funeral, and it is becoming a popular option for a variety of reasons. It involves the cremation of the deceased without a funeral service. It is typically the most cost-effective option because expensive coffins, flowers, cars and the funeral service itself are not included. A Direct Cremation also provides loved ones with greater flexibility to say goodbye in their own way, with many holding a “celebration of life” service or gathering in a more informal setting to a crematorium, such as at home or at a nearby venue…

A Direct Cremation can also be a common wish of the deceased, particularly for those who wouldn’t want a traditional service. Furthermore, direct cremations are practically sometimes better suited in cases where relatives face big geographical challenges in coming together for a ceremony.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between a direct cremation and a traditional cremation?

With direct cremations, the cremation is carried out without holding a traditional memorial service beforehand. Your loved one is transported to the crematorium to be cremated, the ashes are carefully collected and placed in an urn to be delivered back to you. Some providers will include the option of attending a short ceremony but it is unlikely that this will be a full service. You have the freedom to hold your own farewell ceremony to celebrate their life.

Do you still have to pay for a coffin?

The costs above include a simple coffin and urn for the ashes. If you require a premium coffin, this can be arranged for an additional charge.

What about embalming?

Direct cremations are held in the days immediately following the death of a loved one. This means no embalming is required.

What about paperwork?

A direct cremation, sometimes referred to as a simple cremation, requires the usual paperwork to be completed. This will need to be submitted to the crematorium in advance. The fees above include support with paperwork for the cremation. For more information about paperwork and the law browse our advice section.

What is a Direct Cremation?

A Direct Cremation is an alternative to the traditional funeral. This involves the cremation of the deceased without a funeral service. A Direct Cremation is generally the most economic option because costs of the coffin, preparation of the body, funeral service and expensive transportation are not included. However, many people choose Direct Cremations for reasons other than expense, for example:

  • - Wanting to have a memorial at a different time to the cremation
  • - Expressed desire from the deceased to not have a ceremony
  • - Individuals with relatives who face big physical or geographical challenges in coming together for a ceremony

The prices quoted for Direct Cremations include:

  • All charges, meetings and paperwork for the cremation
  • Collection of deceased and care prior to cremation
  • A simple coffin and urn for the ashes
  • Cremation fees and delivery of ashes to the family
