Direct Cremation Services

Direct Cremation

There are many ways to say goodbye to a loved one. Some may be extravagant, while others are quiet and contemplative. Direct Cremations are the latter, offering a cost-effective funeral option, whilst also ensuring the deceased is treated with dignity and respect.

Some people choose them as there is no fanfare attached, and those left celebrate the life of their loved one rather than marking their death. Others opt for it because they don’t want fuss and bother to be made of their passing. Whatever your reasons for considering a Direct Cremation, County Funerals will ensure that you or your loved one receives the utmost care.

Although still a rather modern funeral option, Direct Cremation are becoming more popular in the UK but they are still somewhat misunderstood. We aim to dispel that by providing clear information on what it entails.

Essentially a Direct Cremation is a simple and affordable funeral option, as the cremation takes place without a service or ceremony while complying with all laws that surround how funerals must be carried out.

There is no option to view the deceased and there will be no embalming done, and aside from the funeral direction team, there is no need for mourners to attend on the day. Family or friends will however receive a simple urn with the ashes of their loved ones, or on request, the ashes may be scattered in a requested location.
