Direct Cremation Preston

Affordable Fixed Price Direct Cremation Services

Dealing with the death of a loved one is a difficult time for all involved. The added stress of the cost of a funeral can make this even more challenging. This is why we offer an unattended direct cremation Preston service without a funeral. This is an affordable way to honour your loved one, without incurring the costs commonly associated with an attended funeral. Many people are now choosing this cremation service, as an alternative to a tradition funeral, and then planning their own private and personal memorial to their loved one.

Direct Cremations Include:

Direct cremations include the collection of your loved one from the hospital or mortuary and looking after them until the time of the cremation. We can collect your loved one from a family home, but this does incur an additional charge of £150. It includes all the associated fees, both our fees and the crematorium fees. Your loved one will have an environmentally conscious coffin, and their cremation will be attended to with dignity and respect by one of our funeral directors. You will also receive a cremation certificate.

How Does a Direct Cremation Work?

We will spend time with you discussing your loved one’s direct cremation, so that you understand exactly what will happen, and give you the support and advice to ensure that this is the right decision for you and your family. We will take care of your loved one and ensure that they have a dignified and respectful cremation. This is an unattended service, so you and your family will not be present. Our funeral director will attend the service, and ensure that everything is carried out in accordance with your wishes.

How Much Does This Cremation Service Cost?

We appreciate that traditional funerals can be expensive and that adding financial concerns to other worries at this time can increase the stress of the situation. We always aim to provide a dignified and respectful service for an affordable price. Our direct cremation service costs £995. We do offer additional services for our direct cremation, such as a viewing of your loved one in the chapel of repose, and a choice of different caskets for your loved one’s ashes to be returned in. These do carry an extra cost, but many families find that they are important additions to direct cremation. We can discuss the details with you so that you can make the best decision for you and your family.

Benefits of Direct Cremation

Many people want to celebrate the life of a loved one in a personal way. Maybe they were football fanatics, and you want to attend a match in their honour? Perhaps they enjoyed a picnic in a beautiful local nature spot, and you want to hold an event in their memory? Choosing a direct cremation allows you to create a beautiful and highly unique memorial for your loved one. Gathering their friends and family together to celebrate their life, can give you a better way of celebrating their life, than through a traditional funeral service. For those that are not religious, a direct cremation gives you the scope to celebrate and mourn in a more fitting and genuine way. A funeral is simply a way to say goodbye to a loved one and to remember a life well lived. We believe that funerals are deeply personal and that you and your family should say goodbye in a way that suits you, and a direct cremation allows you to do this.
