WHAT IS A DIRECT CREMATION?

A direct cremation is a low cost funeral that allows you to choose how, when and where you say goodbye to your loved one who has passed away, without being constrained to the traditions of a full funeral.

Is a Direct Cremation right for you?

It can feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders when you're organising a loved one’s funeral and people choose direct cremation for a variety of reasons.

Often it is because it can protect you and your family from the added emotional and financial strain of organising a full service and sometimes it is to allow you to take care of the practicalities and arrange a memorial at a time and place of your choosing.

 Whatever the reason, Simplicity Cremations will help guide you through the process and keep things straightforward, without cutting any corners.  

A Direct Cremation is a Simple, Low Cost Funeral

 

Funerals can be a very expensive affair as there are so many different elements that need to be accounted for, such as a minister, limousines and floral tributes. With a Simplicity Cremation, there is no need for these added extras, as we look after the practical side of the cremation with the utmost compassion, usually without the presence of mourners. While our charges are significantly cheaper than a full funeral, you can always depend on our high standards and quality facilities.

 

We Make It Simple

 

All it takes is one phone call to start the process, with no need to organise any added extras that a traditional funeral would require. We can help alleviate the pressure of filling out forms by meeting you at your convenience and guiding you through any paperwork. We will then leave you with the peace of mind that your loved one is being cared for with the compassion they deserve.

 

It Was What Your Loved One Wanted

 

Some people truly don't want a fuss when they go and your loved one may want you to make arrangements without any added stress. Choosing a direct cremation means you don't have to feel pressured into arranging a full funeral, yet with the option to attend the committal or hold a beautiful memorial or tribute with their ashes at a later date.

 

You Were Not Close with the Departed

 

If you have a distant family member that passes away with no loved ones left to organise a funeral and you are the next-of-kin, you may need to make arrangements. By choosing to have a direct cremation with us, you can trust that they will have a dignified farewell, done properly. If you wish, their ashes can be scattered in the garden of remembrance at our crematorium. We can even arrange for you to witness this on request.

 

Lack of Religious Belief

 

A direct cremation without a funeral service offers you the opportunity to say goodbye without following a specific religious practice, but without removing any sentiment; allowing you to choose what to do afterwards.
