How does a direct cremation work?



A direct cremation includes the transport of the deceased from their place of rest to the crematorium to be cremated.


They are usually an unattended funeral with no procession or mourners - essentially a cremation without ceremony.


We do allow family and loved ones to attend upon request allowing for a personalised family-led funeral service tailored to the loved one.
