We offer a direct cremation service to provide an affordable and dignified cremation service for your loved one. Once a cremation has been carried our we offer to hold the deceased’s ashes for you until you have made a decision about what you’d like to do with them. We can also arrange to have them transported to anywhere in the world at your request.

After the Funeral

After the Funeral there are other arrangements you need to make to ensure that all people and organisations that have a relationship or account with the deceased, are aware of their passing. You may not know all of the companies they had an account with, and so we have put together a comprehensive list to help you with who to inform.
