What is a low cost direct cremation without Ceremony?

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.

Step by step guide to arranging a funeral?

The death must have been verified by a medical professional before you can start the process.

It is the responsibility of the authorised person responsible for arranging the funeral to register the death at their local Registry Office. 

Once we have all the relevant details, we will contact you to complete the formalities.

We will then arrange to collect the deceased and commence the process.

The ashes will be scattered in the garden of remembrance at the crematorium. This will be unattended.

If you have chosen to have the ashes returned, this will be by courier to the address given.

COVID-19: guidance for arranging or attending funerals during the coronavirus pandemic

During COVID19 it is not possible to conduct funerals and cremations as before. Attendance at funerals either in church or at a crematorium is limited to 25 persons.

"GoDirectCremations were a lifesaver. Well, not quite. I can't tell you how helpful GoDirectCremations were after my father died. I'd never had to do any "death admin" before and, frankly, didn't know where to start. GoDirectCremations managed the whole thing: transport from the care home, certificates, cremation and final delivery of the ashes. They kept me informed every step of the way. I always knew what was happening and what would happen next. It was probably the most stress free part of the whole process. My father always said he wanted a no-nonsense funeral. GoDirectCremations were able to provide that and dealing with them meant I could spend more time helping my children come to terms with our loss and more time with my father's friends, which I know would have been important to him. Now we have the ashes, we are able to plan a more relaxed thanksgiving ceremony at a time of our choosing. I couldn't recommend GoDirectCremations enough" Ewan McCowen
