Direct Cremation

In recent times, more people are choosing an unattended direct cremation to bring peace of mind to their families, that they will not be financially burdened by the price of a funeral when the time comes. This, along with changing attitudes since the pandemic and persistent adverting by the direct cremation firms, has led to an increase in the number of these funerals taking place each year in the UK, currently at a record high.

At Cliff Bradley & Sons we recognise the importance of offering a direct cremation to families in our community, providing our services with the utmost of care, respect and dignity. By using local, dedicated and compassionate people, you can be assured of a direct cremation that meets the same level of professional standards and attention to detail as our traditional service, and incomparable to those provided by the nationwide retailers.

As part of our standard direct cremation service, a highly trained and compassionate team will attend in your time of need. Your loved one and family will receive the same compassionate care as provided for a traditional funeral, maintained throughout the process. A traditional hearse will be included for the final journey, with a funeral director paging in front of the procession. Local facilities at Lea Fields will be used for the cremation, with ashes available for collection promptly after the funeral. These are all features that set us apart from other providers, our family caring for yours, in our own special way. Furthermore, a direct cremation with some firms can lead to additional fees, which ultimately increases the cost for family at the time of need.

As an alternative option we offer a Farewell Cremation, essentially an attended direct cremation, allowing up to six mourners to attend the crematorium for a ten minute period for reflection, at a similar cost. Providing all of the options for an informed decision, we are local people dedicated to professional care, helping families to navigate through difficult choices with compassion and sensitivity. We are with you, every step of the way.
