The Unattended Funeral

Our Unattended Funeral will best suit your needs if you want to arrange a simple and straightforward cremation without a service.

When you choose our Unattended Funeral, we will help arrange a dignified cremation without mourners present, allowing you and your loved one's friends and family to commemorate them in your own way.

Sometimes referred to as a "Direct Cremation", our Unattended Funeral will see us bring your loved one into our climate-controlled facilities and provide them with the highest levels of care until the day of the cremation. We will then take them directly to the crematorium in a specialised funeral vehicle. You can rest assured that we will be by your side, offering guidance and support every step of the way.
