Non Religious Funerals
Funerals are becoming increasingly more personal in nature. Many of us prefer to have a non religious funeral with music and poems instead of hymns and prayers. Sometimes a more personal funeral is wanted with just a brief prayer at the committal. All our service are bespoke so you can create the personal farewell that reflects the life of your loved one.
Direct Cremation (no service)
For some people a formal service is not wanted. We are able to offer very basic direct cremation if required where we offer a minimal level of service to collect the deceased and convey them to the cheapest crematorium for an unattended cremation without any service whatsoever. Restrictions apply.

Robert Hunt arranged my late husband’s funeral. He was really professional and caring. Nothing was too much trouble and he was always available at the end of a phone for queries, advice, etc. He was considerate and mindful of our feelings after losing our precious John. He even stopped outside John’s barber shop for 5 minutes so that his customers could pay their respects – even though this was in Kingsteignton and we had left from Torquay. Timings were absolutely spot on and later, when we interred John’s ashes in with his mother and father, he was there early, beautifully dressed, and treated John’s ashes with great respect. I would not hesitate to recommend this family business to anyone in their time of sadness.
The Matthews family
Great Service and high standards highly recommended
They made our Father’s very special day much more bearable with their caring friendly attitude and hard work.
Nothing was too much trouble for Dominic (Funeral Director).
We would very much highly recommend them.
Just to say a huge thank you to you all in making it such a special day yesterday in celebrating dad’s life.
All your arrangements provided a cohesive and dignified occasion for our dad.
The flowers were lovely. An informal display reflecting the lovely Devonshire hedgerow. Exactly our brief. All your help with all our arrangements was greatly appreciated. All who I came into contact with were so kind and understanding.
Thank you again.
Our family has used this service a number of times over the past 20 years. On each occasion the service has been impeccable. Kind, compassionate staff who appear to instinctively know what is needed in the moment. They are responsive, reliable and work to an exceptionally high standard. Each time I have personally encountered this service and their staff I have been impressed and reassured by their professional conduct and kindness and courtesy. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Barnstaple (Interment in Kingswear)
We cannot thank Seb and all of the team at T&I Stockman enough for all the support they have given to our family; their understanding and incredible efficiency has made this difficult time so much easier.
The Stockman Loram teamwork has been excellent; they are respectful, proactive and motivated, they have been a constant source of knowledge and strength.
Our son’s service went so smoothly, which is a huge comfort to us. Seb and the team couldn’t have been any more reliable, decent or respectful and were the scaffolding that held it all together.
Your loved one deserves a funeral service that reflects their personality and accomplishments and is a tribute to their life and the love of family and friends. At Stockman & Loram, we don’t offer packaged funeral services. Our family and our funeral directors will work closely with you to create a funeral that will pay a truly fitting tribute. We will organise all necessary arrangements, including moving your loved one into our care, liaising with all third parties, sourcing music, arranging flowers with excellent local florists, creating printed orders for the service and many other products and services. Nothing is too much trouble.
You can come into one of our offices to discuss the arrangements, or we can visit you in your own home if you prefer at no extra charge.
