Direct Cremation Service (Unattended)
Some families are looking for a very basic and realistically priced unattended funeral. We have put together a basic funeral which allows you to have all the elements at a very affordable price. Many who choose this option often arrange a memorial service at a later date to celebrate their loved one, or even on a special birthday or anniversary.
What is a Direct Cremation?
A direct cremation is a cremation with no funeral service or ceremony, and no mourners. It provides a simple yet dignified service that is attended by the funeral staff only.
Direct cremations are the least expensive option as they avoid any unnecessary expenses such as embalming, viewing of the deceased, funeral service and transportation for the family and loved ones.
What’s included in a Direct Cremation Service?
Our cremations in Bristol are not just an affordable alternative to a full funeral service, they allow you to bid a respectful farewell in a simple, fuss-free way.
We will arrange the following:
- Collection of the deceased within office hours of 09.00 and 17.00, (a surcharge of £175 will apply outside of these hours)
- Completion of all necessary paperwork
- A simple coffin
- Pay the fee (date and time arranged at the funeral home’s discretion)
- Transportation to the crematorium in a private ambulance
- Arrangement for ashes to be scattered in the Garden of Rest or collected from the funeral home
An expensive coffin is not required for a direct cremation, however, please be mindful that additional charges apply for oversized coffins.
Although these cremations in Bristol remove the need for elements that aren’t necessarily required when saying goodbye, no corners are cut, and we make sure that you loved one receives a service that is carried out with utmost professionalism and dignity.
What is extra with Direct Cremation Plus?
This service is for those looking for something a little more traditional. You will know the date and time of the service which is held in the local area so that you and your family can have your own thoughts and perhaps light a candle on the day; your loved one can be dressed in their own clothes and you can visit them in our Chapel of Rest or have a service with a small gathering before the cremation, if desired.
Some families like to hold a separate service to celebrate their loved one’s life once they’ve had time to grieve and whilst this could be in a church or place of worship, many choose somewhere that was significant to the deceased, for instance, the house they’ve always lived in, a garden, restaurant, golf club, beach, etc.
