The Modern Funeral provide a direct cremation service to help you make the best of things in a simple, meaningful and honest way. Direct cremation is the simplest and most straightforward of all funeral options. It ensures a respectful and dignified send-off for your loved one without fuss or fanfare, leaving the bereaved able to say farewell in their own personal way, at a time and location to suit them. Direct cremation is a cost-effective option, and is especially relevant for people who pass away with little close family, or those whose relatives live far away and are unlikely to be able to attend the funeral service. Or perhaps you simply don’t want any fuss whatsoever? Whatever your reason, direct cremations are becoming more and more popular. Many people like to organise their own memorial service at a later date, as a direct cremation doesn’t include a funeral ceremony. You are in charge. We can do everything for you; take on some or all of the tasks, support you as you do the majority of them or simply offer you our advice. At The Modern Funeral, your loved one will be treated with only the highest levels of respect and dignity throughout the service. As part of the direct cremation service offered by us here at The Modern Funeral, we will: • Transport and look after the body of the deceased • Provide a simple coffin • Deliver an early morning cremation with up to two witnesses • Undertake a relaxed, face to face meeting with yourselves to complete all the necessary paperwork If you want to know more about our direct cremation services and how we can make the arranging process a smooth and professional one for you, then please don’t hesitate to fill in the form on this page and submit it back to us.
