Direct Cremation

A simple and dignified direct cremation service

Direct cremation is a lower cost alternative to a traditional funeral. This service provides a cremation service for you, without a funeral. Rowland Brothers understand that for families who either live too far away, or their loved one passed away overseas and they are unable to travel to that destination; a direct cremation is the best solution.

Direct cremation is a simple cremation service, without attendees. We are able to take care of all arrangements for you, ensuring that the process is clear, straightforward, and respectful to your loved one.
