What is a dc

A direct cremation is simply a

cremation without a service.  

The person who has died is collected

and cared for by us until the day of the cremation when they are taken in a simple coffin to the crematorium

 without mourners present.  

The ashes are then returned to you for you to decide whether you would like to hold an ashes ceremony.

This is sometimes also known as a simple cremation.

This is the lowest priced option and

for many this is a driving force.  

For others, they just do not want to have a

funeral service at the time of death.  

A direct cremation enables the family to be able to hold a memorial, honouring of life or celebration of life ceremony, if they wish to, at a time and place

that suits them.

You are free to choose what is right for you

whether a traditional style ceremony or a more relaxed picnic/country walk

sharing memories.
