Direct Cremation without Ceremony
This is an option for those, who for lots of reasons, prefer not to have a funeral service. This option of a simple, straightforward cremation is now being chosen by a growing number of people. There typically is no official funeral mass or service, which means the crematorium/crematory can perform the cremation at a less busy time. This also means no family or friends are in attendance during the cremation with the ashes being delivered to the family after the cremation, making it a cheaper alternative to arranging a funeral.
Many families opt for direct cremation and then arrange a celebration with the ashes at a time to suit them or during the scattering of ashes celebration or when burying the ashes in a grave.
