Mears Beckenham Funeral Director: Unattended (Direct) Cremation Prices
Direct Cremation is an alternative to a traditional funeral, a modern service without the usual black hearse and somber mourners leaving family members to celebrate their loved ones life at a time and place to suit, perhaps in a special place or at a significant time of year.
The deceased is cremated in a dignified manner with Funeral Director and Crematorium staff in attendance but with no mourners permitted to attend the Crematorium.
We cover the whole of the UK with our fleet of removal vehicles tracked on all of their journeys.
Arrangements as to the specific day and time of Cremation will be agreed with the Crematorium although you can be advised of the specific time of cremation on request.
A Vigil, Celebration of Life, Ashes Scattering, Tree Planting Ceremony or just a time of personal reflection may be held but these will need to be subject to separate arrangements.
The deceased’s ashes can be returned to you shortly after the cremation takes place.
Direct Cremation Fees include all Crematorium Costs and the price quoted is the price you will pay for both the Funeral Director Services listed below and all Cremation Fees.
The service is the perfect option for Solicitors who have been tasked with arranging a funeral at the lowest possible cost.
