Direct cremations

Direct cremations and unattended funerals

Direct cremations are unattended cremations. They are an alternative to traditional services which may be appropriate if family and friends are all unable to attend a service for any reason.

Direct cremations are performed at the crematorium usually in the evening or early morning and cover all necessary formalities. We can then provide you with the ashes for your own memorial in a time and place that works for you.

Direct Cremations are one type of unattended funeral. Unattended burials are also available.

“The whole team at Taylor’s are exceptionally helpful and thoughtful. I have used their services twice now and cannot fault their professionalism and attention to detail and would recommend them to anyone who is in need of a funeral director. Their prices are also excellent and blow the big chains out of the water for value of money with no compromise in service or quality.”
