Direct Cremations

Deciding on your funeral type

Unattended Funerals

Considering an unattended cremation is an important decision, we’re here to help.

Inclusive Direct Cremation Package

An unattended cremation is commonly called a direct cremation. This is a service we are happy to provide and will guide you through this choice. We are always keen to stress that as each funeral choice has to represent your wishes, it is also wise to consider the feelings and emotional impact this option may have on your loved ones. 

A direct cremation involves no form of service or ceremony at the crematorium with no mourners allowed to be in attendance. This does not mean that you can not arrange a service of celebration at a later time and we would be happy to help in arranging this. 

A direct cremation is a less expensive alternative to a traditional funeral but for loved ones left it can be very difficult not to have the opportunity to celebrate your life and have a symbolic goodbye, which is one of the main features of a funeral. 

Our direct cremation package includes the following:

  • Our Professional Services and making sure the necessary paperwork is completed
  • Collecting and transporting your Loved One
  • Caring for and preparing your Loved One at our funeral home
  • Providing a private resting room to spend time with your Loved One
  • Staff on the day of the cremation with a private ambulance
  • Unattended Cremation Fee
  • Simple wood effect veneer coffin

Not included in our Direct Cremation Inclusive Package:

  • Doctors’ Fees
  • Choosing the date and time of cremation
  • Attending the cremation
  • Any Funeral service
  • Coffin upgrade, third party fees and any other products and services may be available and can be added to the inclusive package price at the fees shown on full price list.

Total Cost £1,775.00*

*Please Note: The Direct to Cremation Inclusive Package (no funeral service) includes the unattended cremation fee at the local Westerleigh Crematorium and excludes all other disbursements and third-party costs; doctors’ fees, or extras such as flowers.
