There are many ways to mark the passing of a loved one, you may opt for something simple and memorable to reflect how they lived their life, or a more structured farewell adhering to religious customs and cultural traditions. Ultimately, there is no right or wrong answer. What matters most is that the decision is made with care and respect for the deceased.

What Is Direct Cremation?
Cremation is a centuries-old method for dealing with the passing of a loved one that involves burning their remains into fine ashes.
A direct cremation is a simple and affordable option that provides the flexibility to accommodate a loved one’s wishes. It is a cremation with no service and without anyone in attendance. Typically, this type of cremation is performed within days after someone passes away.
After the cremation, the ashes are then returned to the family who can then carry out a loved one’s wishes, where they might hold onto the ashes for memorialisation, or arrange a less traditional memorial service at a later date.
