Local Direct Cremation

We are proud to offer a local direct cremation service. Direct cremation is a service when there is no formal funeral service, it is normally held early morning and is a very simple no fuss choice of funeral generally unattended.

We will arrange a date and time to suit our diary, this could be at short notice. On the day we will arrive in a discreet vehicle, with two members of staff and with the assistance of the crematorium staff, convey the deceased to the cremator. We then collect the cremated remains in the days following the cremation. With all our direct cremation options we are able to prepare and dress your loved one for viewing.

We are able to offer a number of different options for direct cremation-

  • A full Funeral Service at a venue of choice, followed by a unattended cremation. (Contact us for information)
  • An attended cremation with a 10 minute slot where eight people are allowed to attend. (Option B+E Below)
  • An attended cremation with a 20 minute slot where twenty people are allowed to attend. (Option C Below)
  • A unattended cremation option where nobody attends at all. (Option A+D Below)

As a company we only offer this service at local crematoriums and ensure that your loved ones funeral is kept local. Many companies who advertise on TV do offer this service, however the cremation is generally held hundreds of miles away from the West Midlands and is provided by large corporate companies. 

As we are a local family owned company who have been looking after funeral arrangements for over one hundred years, we like to keep this offering local and ensure the dignity that the arrangements are handled by a local company.

We are able to offer this service for families who have sadly lost someone at present and wish to arrange for a direct cremation now, or for those people who wish to plan ahead and pre pay and arranger their funeral wishes.
