How does a Direct Cremation Service Work?

Call us on 01245 202221 or via our contact form

On receipt of your call we will advise you on the next stages in order to proceed with our services.

We bring your loved one into our care

Immediately from any non-hospital location, or from any Essex hospital within 2 days of the paperwork being completed. Your loved one will be prepared and cared for at our Chapel of rest in Chelmsford. (Additional fees may apply, see our FAQs)

The cremation is arranged and we advise you of the date and time of committal

We will arrange, collate and send you the documents for signing via secure courier which you return to us. Once the committal has been booked, we notify you of the date and time it will take place so you can have a moment of reflection.

The committal takes place in a local crematorium

On the day, your loved one will be escorted to the crematorium by our uniformed staff in our specially adapted funeral vehicle. You can choose to have one piece of music played during the committal.

You receive the ashes within 28 days

We return the ashes to you via tracked courier, or they will be ready for you to collect from our funeral home, within 28 days. A member of our team can hand deliver the ashes for an additional fee if you wish.
