Cremation

Whether you choose a cremation for personal or religious reasons it can be done in various ways to include your own wishes and that of a loved-one.

There are no set rules with cremations and it offers more choices than a traditional burial. It can be a simple “direct” or private cremation without anyone present or it could be elaborate with the coffin present at the church service. A direct cremation costs less than a traditional funeral. The cremation service can be arranged to include traditions such as a private viewing, a wake and a memorial service before or after the cremation. We will take care of all the arrangements on your behalf and help put into place everything you would like to have, even special requests such as the interment, scattering or burial of the remains in a niche, grave or special place of significance.

If you are considering cremation as an option for you personally when the time comes, it is always wise to consult your family and tell them of your wishes. You could also complete and make use of our pre-planning option. Print it to keep safe in a file with all your other important documents such as your Will. Phone us and we can help you make an informed decision.
