We are a traditional family owned funeral director based in East Yorkshire, who have been serving our communities for the past 10 years. As a family business we know and understand the level of care and suport that is expected of us.
What Is A Direct Cremation?
Direct Cremation is cremation without a funeral service. It is increasing more popular choice to save loved ones from the stresses and costs involved with arranging a traditional funeral and opt for a direct cremation instead.
We arrange the collection of a loved one from hospital, hospice or HM Coroner*, carry out all necessary documentation, supply a simple coffin, facilitate the cremation and then return the ashes to you directly, or arrange for them to be scattered if desired.
*deaths that occur at home incurr an additional fee of £150 in working hours or £250 out of working hours.
Why Choose Cremations Direct?
As a traditional funeral director, we have the right knowledge, expertise and facilities to care a love one properly. Though our branches we have professional facilities and expert staff that ensure a loved one is cared for with dignity and respect.
By choosing a direct cremation, many families are able to put finances otherwise spent on an expensive funeral to better use. Some we have encountered have instead taken their loved ones 'ashes' to a special or favorite place or celebrate them in their own personal way. Others are reasured that through the simplicity of the direct cremation option they have adhered to a loved ones wishes.
