Stag's unique approach

Direct cremation is a simple, affordable, and increasingly popular way to say goodbye to
a loved one in the UK. It involves cremating the person without any funeral service or
other formalities. While direct cremation may not be for everyone, it can be a comforting
choice for those who want to focus on their loved ones memory rather than the funeral
arrangements. At Stag Direct Cremations we have a holistic approach for caring not
only for the person who has died but also those who are left behind including their
physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Here we will explore the benefits of
holistic care around direct cremations.

Physical Needs

When someone dies, it is important to ensure that their body is handled with respect
and care. After collecting the person who has died and bringing them into our care Stag
Cremations offer a unique range of services to meet physical needs such as upgrading
to the Elegance Package. Here we wash and anoint the body using essential oils and
depending on your spiritual beliefs a Blessing can be given.

Emotional Needs

The death of a loved one can be a difficult and emotional experience. Holistic care
around direct cremations acknowledges the importance of emotional support during this
time. At Stag Cremations we provide bereavement support in the forms of meditations
held monthly, Webinars run by Nutritionalist Sabine Horner on how best to eat and take
care of yourself through healthy eating and monthly grief art sessions hosted by Nell
Price from Arty Farty Retreat.

Spiritual Needs

For many people, spirituality plays an important role in their lives, and this is no different
when it comes to end-of-life care. Holistic care around direct cremations recognises the
importance of spirituality and may offer services that honour the beliefs and traditions of
the deceased and their family. This can include a personalised ash scattering ceremony
or a memorial service that incorporates the deceased's spiritual beliefs.

In conclusion


A direct cremation can provide a simple and affordable way to say goodbye to a loved one. However, it is important to remember that direct cremation is not just a practical decision, but also a personal one. Holistic care around direct cremations recognises the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the deceased and their family, and offers a range of services to support them through this difficult time.
