What is a Direct Cremation?

What is a direct cremation? A direct cremation, also referred to as a simple cremation, a pure cremation, a cremation without funeral, a cremation without service, is a direct funeral. A cheap, basic cremation with no funeral service or ceremony. The body of your loved one is transported from the home, hospice, hospital or care home to Direct2Grave, where we prepare your loved one for the crematorium.

Using a range of preferred partners to minimise the cost of the cremation, we are able to offer a comprehensive direct cremation product without any hidden charges. As you will not attend, after the cremation you can choose to have the cremated remains of your loved one scattered in the Garden of Remembrance in a recorded but unmarked place for later commemoration, collect them yourself or, for a small additional charge, have us collect and courier them to you.

Without going to the expense of a full funeral service we can also offer you some options,  including the choice of crematorium* and the time of day, however, to keep our costs down for you we will  minimise on the day personnel and leave you to your own devices after the coffin has been taken into the chapel. It is then for you to choose how to use the service time, be it 30 or 45 minutes. You could listen to music, read poems, or even arrange a celebration of your own.

*As long as it is within south east London and inside the M25**
