Firstly, a Direct Cremation consists of a cremation only, no service and no funeral procession. However, you may choose to have a memorial service at a later time and location to say a fitting goodbye to your loved one.
The beauty of a Direct Cremation is that it’s the most cost effective option for saying goodbye to a loved one and here are the 3 reasons why.
1. You don’t have to arrange a funeral or memorial immediately
By choosing a Direct Cremation, you can take care of the immediate need to organise your loved one’s body without having to immediately organise a memorial service. This can alleviate last minute travel and event costs. By allowing yourself to plan and book the memorial for a more suitable time, enables you to shop around and book venues, catering and travel arrangements in a less desperate way.
2. You can conduct the memorial celebration in the way you want
Once the direct cremation has been conducted and you receive your loved one’s ashes, you can organise your own personalised memorial service. This does not need a funeral director (which is a major money saver), and it can be organised to fit your budget and timings. You can hold a memorial service anywhere you want that is fitting for you and your family that means something to your loved one.
3. All arrangements can be made online
By choosing our direct cremation service, all the arrangements will be made online or by phone, there is no need to actually visit the funeral home. This will dramatically reduce your time in travelling to a funeral home, not to mention petrol and parking costs.
Arranging the funeral online also saves time for our staff, which is why we charge a lower cost to you, than if you were organising a traditional funeral service. It really is a win-win.
As you can see, choosing a Direct Cremation for your loved one can significantly reduce the cost of saying goodbye to your loved one. This means that stress of the family is also reduced, making it a wonderful option when considering how best to farewell your loved one.
