Yes, very easily. You may be interested in our Direct Funeral option which is a £1,450 package that includes a funeral service presented by a professional celebrant at the location of your choosing.
Nowadays many families are opting for a conventional attended funeral service to take place without the presence of the coffin which is taken in private by funeral staff to the Crematorium separately. The service may often be followed by a reception in the function room of a village hall, pub or hotel.
This arrangement is becoming increasingly popular as many people find the sight of the coffin during the service to be very distressing at an already difficult time.
With Cremation Only there is no attendance at the Crematorium but you are of course free to arrange whatever type of informal gathering you feel is appropriate to celebrate the life of your loved one; and it could be anywhere you want, and whenever you choose.
In the case of the Direct Funeral, the exact service with a professional celebrant you would have had at the Crematorium chapel would be held anywhere you might choose, for example at a function room before the more informal social part with refreshments etc. It offers improved continuity using just one venue, excellent value for money and reduces unnecessary travelling.
Our Direct Funeral costs just £1,450 and is a a fixed price all-inclusive package. It is based on our direct cremation service but also includes the elements necessary to make this into an attended funeral. We visit you at home so you can discuss the funeral arrangements face to face with the funeral director. The professional funeral celebrant will also make an appointment to visit you in order to learn more about your loved one and write the bespoke eulogy to present at the funeral service. After the cremation we return the ashes to you (if required) in a solid oak casket with an engraved plaque on the top. We always aim to return the ashes quickly and sometimes families will hold the funeral with the ashes present for the service.
