Unattended cremation

An unattended cremation is just what it sounds like. It’s a simple cremation with no mourners present, with the ashes either scattered in one of our gardens of remembrance or returned to the family at a later date.

Because there’s no service attached to the cremation, an unattended cremation is the cheapest cremation we offer. However, we never cut corners when it comes to funeral care to lower costs. Even though an unattended cremation doesn't allow for any viewings of the deceased or a funeral service, we always respectfully prepare the deceased ahead of cremation by washing and dressing them.

Attended Discreet Cremations

An attended cremation is closer to what you’d consider being a traditional funeral, only without the pomp and ceremony we've come to expect. Our Discreet Cremations services are simple affairs – no hearses, no expensive flower displays and intimate family-led services.

Our Discreet Cremation Plans are 10-minute services that take place early morning with up to 8 mourners present. These services are typically led by the family and you can use our state-of-the-art media system that will let you pick any commercially available music of your choice for the service and our Chapel Attendants will be there to support the family.

Can I really have a cremation without a funeral?

Yes, you can.

Many of the elements we've come to expect from a funeral come from tradition rather than legal requirements. If a funeral service attended by dozens of mourners isn't very you then it doesn't have to be that way, you can simply arrange in advance to have no funeral at all, just a cremation. Or, if a family member passes away and you know they wouldn't have wanted a big fuss, we can plan a simple direct cremation for them.
