No service cremation
Otherwise known as a Direct Cremation, this is a wonderful option for families who would rather take time now in order to create memories later.
Sometimes families are simply undecided, the rush of time passing after a loved ones death can be too overwhelming and the days too short to plan an appropriate funeral. Sometimes creating a memorial event later means other family can attend that may not have been able to at shorter notice.
Some people may need a quietness, and calm away from the flurry of funeral planning in their grief. But whatever the reason, we are committed to meeting each family's unique needs, whatever they may be.
