Burials & Cremations

When a loved one has passed away leaving no funeral wishes, their family must make the decision between a burial and a cremation. We can discuss this further with you and make sure you are clear on the associated costs of both, below are some important points to remember

  • There are two options available for a cremation; the more traditional option with a service taken in chapel to remember and celebrate the life of the person who has died. However, ‘direct cremations’ are becoming increasingly popular. A direct cremation means your loved one is taken to the crematorium by the funeral director with no service or family in attendance, this means you can choose to have a service or celebration later if you choose.
  • A cremation is often the cheaper option, although it’s important to remember that after a cremation has taken place you will be left with a set of ashes. There are lots of options available regarding last memorials or the scattering of ashes, which we would be happy to discuss with you further.
  • If you are planning a traditional burial, it is important to consider the grave rights. Plots from local councils are often leased to you for a set number of years (min 10 years – max 100 years) for a set fee. We can offer more guidance on this if necessary.

Options for Ashes

There are lots of options available for what to do with ashes after a cremation. A few examples are listed below, we are available to discuss these with you and understand any associated costs which may be applicable.

  • Lots of families chose to scatter a loved ones ashes in their favourite place or most local authorities have a memorial garden where you can scatter ashes.
  • There are several options to have a lasting memorial where ashes can be interred into the ground, similar to a burial.
  • It’s also becoming more popular to have a bespoke piece of jewellery made to hold a small amount of ashes
  • Some more elaborate choices could be to have ashes placed in fireworks to display.

The choice is yours; we have a wide range of urns to suit all tributes.
