Low Cost Funerals - Go Direct Cremations

Cremation Services

A direct cremation is a distinctive alternative to a traditional funeral. We offer a simple, dignified cremation at a time and place that we choose, without mourners present.

Allowing Go Direct Cremations to arrange the funeral ensures full respect for the deceased person whilst eliminating the stress of attending the crematorium as well as unnecessary expense.

If desired, family and friends are then able to hold a private memorial service or send-off at a later date, confident that they will not be judged to have in any way failed the deceased by not attending the funeral, at what can be a deeply distressing time.

A Cremation Without Ceremony is also sometimes known as a Direct Cremation. There is no funeral service and no mourners are permitted at the cremation. Only the professional attendants are present.

It is an ideal alternative for those who would prefer a simpler and cheaper funeral, without all the attendant costs of flowers, pall bearers, hearse, limousines and black coated top hatted funeral directors. This option is now being chosen by a growing number of people.

Go Direct Cremations ensures full respect for the deceased person whilst removing the emotional stress of attending the crematorium as well as unnecessary expense.

Family and friends are then able to hold a private memorial service or send-off, later, confident that they have in no way compromised the deceased by not attending the funeral, at what is a deeply distressing time.

A cremation without ceremony is a dignified alternative to a traditional cremation.

Many families hold a funeral service in their local church after which there is a procession to the crematorium attended only by immediate family members.

The cremation committal takes place and the family then join the mourners at the wake. This can be awkward since there is inevitably a delay during which the mourners are expecting refreshments but the family is not present to receive them and start proceedings.

There is no need to effectively prolong the agony this way. Few people like crematoria anyway and would excuse themselves from attending, unless their absence would be an embarrassment to the family.

At Go Direct Cremations, we do not compromise in the way the deceased is treated at any time they are in our care. They are handled with the utmost respect and dignity.

You are free to arrange your own commemoration service or celebration of life, possibly at some later date, in your preferred manner, when you are more composed and able to spend time with family members and close friends.
