A direct cremation takes away all the fuss and separates the cremation from the celebration. A direct cremation also provides families and friends with a dignified opportunity to say goodbye in the way that suits them, without the costs, and stress that come with arranging a traditional funeral. All the arrangements are organised with us directly.

It can take from 1-2 weeks but this will mainly depend if there is an inquest and availability at a crematorium.
