What’s the Difference Between a Direct Cremation and a Traditional Funeral?

Direct cremation involves no formal funeral service and is usually unattended. It offers a humble, much simpler way to be laid to rest. Direct cremations are generally fulfilled without the ceremony of a traditional funeral or the usual customs and traditions but your loved one receives a cremation carried out with dignity and professionalism.

A direct cremation is a low cost funeral and the cheapest way of laying someone to when funds are limited.

What makes a good funeral?

Of all the decisions you have to make about the funeral, one of the most important for the success of the ceremony is 'who is going to conduct the service?' If you are, or the person who has died was, a member of a particular church family or faith group the decision will be easy - you will invite your own minister, priest, rabbi, imam etc.
