Direct Cremations

What are Direct Cremations?

Before we learn what a Direct Cremation is it’s important to know what a standard cremation is. A cremation is a process of taking a body and burning it at a high temperature until it turns into ash. Once this has happened you take the ashes and store them in a vessel of your, or your loved ones, choice. In a traditional cremation you can have a service with the body before you take them to the crematorium. However, a Direct Cremation doesn’t hold a celebration or service and the body is simply sent to the crematorium to be burnt.
