Many people opt for a cremation only for a simple service to reduce the burden and stress on their family.
Cremations are also becoming an increasingly popular choice for those who wish to make a conscious decision to reduce their carbon footprint.
A cremation without a funeral service is also known as a direct cremation.

What is involved in the cremation process?
Once the deceased has been formally identified, their body is transferred to the crematorium where it is prepared. The body does not need to be embalmed for a cremation, unless there will be a viewing or the family requests it.
The body is then placed in a cremation container and transported to the cremation chamber.
The ashes are then collected, placed in an urn, and given to the family.
Where do people like to scatter ashes?
Your loved one may have already expressed their wishes when it comes to where they would like their ashes scattered.
This can be done in a number of ways, each of which is highly personal to the individual and their family. This may include scattering ashes at sea, in the backyard, or burying them with a memorial tree.
There is no right or wrong way to scatter the ashes; choose the location that has the most sentimental value to you and your loved ones. We can help you in making a decision.
Can I still opt for a memorial or funeral when cremated?
Yes, you certainly can.
You can opt for a traditional funeral service, in which the body is present before it is taken to the crematorium.
Alternatively, you can choose a memorial service, where the body is not present. You may also choose a memorial service following the cremation, with the ashes present.
The cremation does not replace the memorial service; it is simply an alternative for a loved one’s final resting place.
What is an ashes scattering ceremony?
This is an optional service we can help organise at a later date, where an intimate group of family members and friends can gather following a loved one’s death to scatter their ashes.
We can arrange a more formal service with a celebrant, or we can help you organise everything and leave you and your family to it for a more intimate and informal celebration of life with your nearest and dearest.
Do I need a coffin to be cremated?
In most cases, you do not need a traditional coffin to be cremated.
If you are opting for a no-service cremation, your funeral director can help organise a simple, combustible coffin for the cremation. Speak to our funeral directors today to learn more about a coffin suitable for cremation.
Can we still have a viewing before cremation?
Yes, a viewing is often a sentimental moment for the family and can provide closure following the loss of a loved one. If you wish, you can opt for a private, intimate viewing with a select group of family and close friends.
