What is a Direct Burial?

What is a direct burial? A direct burial is an affordable, simple unattended burial with no service, ceremony with no family, friends or mourners. It is a cheap, low-cost alternative to more expensive traditional funerals. This permits you to remember your loved one in your own way and at a time that is convenient for you.

We have partnered with two privately owned cemeteries in south-east London (inside the M25) to provide those who would like a fixed price lawn burial option*, and one cemetery just outside the M25 offering natural and woodland burials. As the name suggests our direct burial service will take your loved one ‘Direct2’ one of those burial grounds.

Our preferred partner will allocate you a grave** and we will undertake the burial, leaving you to come later to pay your respects and arrange a memorial stone if you so choose.

If you are a little more flexible on price, with the fixed cost of our services you can choose the cemetery and burial plot and pay the difference. We will then lower the coffin into the grave as soon as we arrive and you can then arrange a service of celebration at the graveside.

*Entirely at our discretion.

**With the grant of a right of burial for at least 25 years, lawn graves can only have a memorial headstone and base; woodland burials are for single interments only and include the planting of a tree (no memorials permitted).
