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

In a direct cremation there is no formal funeral service and is usually unattended. It is a much simpler and a humble way to be laid to rest. Direct cremations are usually conducted without the ceremony of a traditional funeral or the typical customs and traditions but your loved one receives a dignified cremation carried out with professionalism.

A direct cremation is the cheapest way of laying someone to rest to keep costs low 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.
