Standard or direct cremation

Standard cremation

The service lasts 45 minutes, which allows you 30 minutes in the chapel. It includes:

  • attendants
  • use of one of the chapels at the crematorium
  • use of the organ
  • use of the music system (your funeral director or celebrant should have access to our media library)
  • medical referee fee to allow the doctor to authorise the cremation

The hearse must arrive at the crematorium prior to the service, so the coffin can be placed in the chapel.

After the service, when the mourners have left the chapel, the coffin will be moved.

Following cremation the remains are moved to a container which is clearly marked. The ashes are then collected or we intern or scatter in accordance with the applicant's wishes. 

    Direct cremation

    A direct cremation involves no formal funeral service. We carry out the cremation, and either return the ashes to the family or intern or scatter them in accordance with their wishes. 

    This option costs less than a standard cremation as there is no service and mourners generally do not attend.
