Direct Cremation / Simple Funeral

As an alternative to a “traditional” funeral, many people choose a Direct Cremation also known as a Simple Funeral. A direct cremation is usually, but not always, a service without a minister, without a funeral procession and sometimes without family and friends present. We offer two types of direct / simple cremations. Both Simple funerals require full payment before the day of the funeral and you cannot add extra services to these types of funeral. Please contact us for more information if required.
