Why thousands of people are opting for direction cremations.
The world is changing – more and more people are opting for a direct cremation rather than a standard funeral, and for lots of us, it makes perfect sense. Going for a direct cremation hands control to you, allowing you to organise the send-off that best reflects the person you’re saying goodbye to. Traditional funerals are great for some, but lots of people are seeking something more personal and flexible. Whether it’s because you don’t attend a church, or you just want to do something different, direct cremation gives them that flexibility and control. Whether you just want a service of celebration with an urn, a scattering of ashes or just a straightforward cremation with no fuss, direct cremation gives you that choice.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do a direct cremation? How is it different to a regular cremation?
A direct cremation is ‘unattended’ – you won’t be there, and there won’t be a service or anything like that. You’ll get the ashes back within 5 working days, and then you’re able to do whatever works for you.
When you use We Are Direct Cremations, you’ll get the ashes back faster than anywhere else – most direct cremation companies will usually take between a fortnight and a month to get them back to you.
Do I need to use a Funeral Director?
No. A direct cremation means you can do whatever you want, whether that’s a service at the local golf club, a wake at the pub, or a low-key, family-only affair. We can liaise with Funeral Directors though, so if you’re going in that direction, we can still help.
What’s the difference between a funeral and a direct cremation?
A funeral refers to the actual ceremony, often in a church, where the coffin is brought in, and there’s a service of some description. Following that service, people opt either for a burial or a cremation. A direct cremation is just the “cremation” bit and nothing else, which makes it a lot more affordable.
How long does a direct cremation take?
Our service is extremely swift. We aim to deliver your loved one’s ashes back to you within 5 days of collection.
