Direct Cremation in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire

Do you require a simple alternative to a traditional funeral that is both respectful and dignified? Our direct cremation service is a simple, dignified option in which your loved one is cremated without a funeral service or ceremony, sometimes known as an unattended cremation.

Funeral Arrangements Without the Fuss

From birthdays to weddings, we plan our life events to reflect who we are. Some enjoy the fanfare and want something bold and exuberant, whilst others prefer a more reserved occasion with minimal fuss. Why should our final send off be any different?

An Alternative to a Traditional Funeral

We don’t want to take away the sentiment that comes with a funeral service, but we do believe there is an alternative way. A way that does things right, ensures a respectful cremation, and then allows you to tailor your personal tribute in your own special way.

Here To Help with Direct Cremations

Regardless of the funeral service you choose, we are committed to making sure you honour your loved one in a respectful, dignified and personal way, no matter your financial situation. We are available to meet you in your own home or at one of our offices.

About Direct Cremation Funeral Services

For a traditional funeral, you’ll often need a whole team of staff to co-ordinate the required services, book the time with the crematorium, deal with paperwork, manage tributes and announcements, and ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day. There are also then additional costs incurred with the inclusion of a full service at a church or crematorium, including products and services such as music, floral tributes, service cards and other additional extras, which can naturally increase the cost incurred to the family.

A direct cremation offers the same excellent service from your funeral director, but without all the fuss. By removing the service, the family of the deceased or those responsible for arrangements can make substantial savings compared to a traditional funeral. Your loved one will still travel in our immaculately presented hearse, and we will still walk ahead of the cortege for a dignified final journey, just without the service or the additional arrangements. This then allows you to hold your own personal tribute, where and when you want.

Direct Cremation Funerals

Direct cremation can be a perfect choice for some families, and not everybody would want traditional funeral service. Many people wish to hold their own private ceremony or purchase a memorial, and they use the savings to do so. For others, it is the wishes of the deceased to hold a no fuss cremation. A direct cremation is also perfect for individuals who have no close family or haven’t made a financial provision in their will. With our direct cremation option, you can do the right thing, but without all the fuss. Find out more about what's included in a standard direct cremation package in the table aside and contact our team today should you need a price for bespoke service.
