Direct Cremation

Why it’s right for you

A direct cremation is the most cost effective funeral. It is simple and dignified and may be the most suitable option for someone who requires no attendance or service. The cremated remains may still be delivered at an additional cost.

Contemporary or Traditional Funeral Options

You may be looking for a funeral with friends and family to attend but unsure where to go from here. We offer two options. The first is the Contemporary Option which is purely a cremation with a service which allows attendees to celebrate the life of the departed. The second option is the Traditional Funeral with Cremation or Burial which includes a Funeral Director conducting the funeral, a hearse and the possibilities of a viewing and limousines. These options are available at Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, Salisbury and Southampton.
