How does direct cremation work?
Not keen on a traditional cremation service? These conventional cremations can be easily substituted for a direct cremation from Stockman & Loram. This type of cremation, also known as a “pure cremation,” will take place with no traditional funeral service alongside it. It’s a simple alternative to the traditional funeral format, that gives you the freedom to say goodbye in a way that respects the preferences of your loved ones.
Some families may decide to host a wake at a later date to honour their loved one in a way that better reflects them or hold a small, informal gathering to scatter the ashes. We believe that because every family is unique, and prefers to handle things in their own way, this type of funeral is ideal for those who simply don’t want a formal funeral service. This kind of service is easygoing and ideal for those who want to keep things understated – so if this sounds like something to consider, please feel free to get in touch with us right away to learn more about direct cremation.
Worried about direct cremation cost? It is important to be aware that while many national providers charge extra for returning the ashes to the family and for deaths that occur at home, Stockman & Loram can provide a direct cremation starting at £1,650 subject to our terms and conditions.
