Mears Beckenham Funeral Director: Attended Cremation with Farewell
An Attended Cremation with Farewell, offers a cremation with a small gathering of up to 12 friends and family. Gatherings are informal and normally held in quieter Off-Peak Crematorium times in the morning or afternoon. Music can be played and words can be spoken but this is a gathering not a service and no provision is made for a celebrant to be present.
The important point to note is you cannot set the precise day or time for an Attended Cremation With Farewell. Rather your Funeral Director will come back to you with the times that are available.
Ceremony’s are available at most local Crematoriums. Arrangements as to the specific day and time of Ceremony will be agreed with the Crematorium. The actual cremation may not take place on the day that the Ceremony takes place.
The deceased’s ashes will be returned to you shortly after the cremation takes place.
