We are one of the only Funeral Directors in the North East to offer the Direct Cremation option..
The direct cremation is a practical, alternative and lower- cost option when compared to a traditional funeral service. The Deceased is first cremated without any initial service or procession. A memorial service or gathering can be held, if desired, following the cremation at a time and place more suitable for friends and family. In many cases the cost is not the main factor in direct cremation and it is widely accepted that some of the worlds most advanced economies such as the USA and Canada practice direct cremation as a matter of course.
Some people express a wish for absolutely no fuss or a traditional funeral, family and friends are quite often living a considerable distance away, sometimes the deceased has lost touch with all family members or in some cases has outlived them.
