    A direct cremation is different to a traditional ceremonial funeral. There is no service, no hearses or limousines and mourners do not attend the cremation. The ashes are then either scattered or returned to you, which allows you to arrange a separate remembrance service at a more personal and reflective location for the individual if you wish.

I recently used Relph Funeral Services based in Acklam, I cannot recommend them enough. The service they provide is second to none, they make an emotional event so stress free, everything ran so smoothly and I felt looked after every step of the way and totally confident of the care they provided. They cover every base and are totally in control so the whole process is completely worry free and so easy. I would just like to thank them once again for the superb support they provide at what could be such a stressful time.
