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 expensive coffins, preparation of the body, funeral service and expensive transportation are not included. However, many people choose Direct Cremations for reasons other than expense. Often this can be an expressed desire from the deceased or individuals with relatives who face big geographical challenges in coming together for a ceremony
