We offer a more personal direct cremation service, which is provided by your local family run funeral directors, based here in North Devon. You will be in contact locally with us, your funeral directors, and we will help a guide you through the process and keep you informed every step of the way.
For a variety of reasons, direct cremation may be appropriate for you.
The 'Direct Cremation', this service will take place on a date and time we chose, with no mourners present and we will inform you after the service has taken place. A basic coffin will be provided, along with the staff required to complete the service, including being overseen by a funeral director and a suitable specialised funeral vehicle.
