    The Crematorium ServiceFrom £1,495

    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.

    • A professional Arranger will provide support, guidance and co-ordinate everything for you
    • There is no service or ceremony for mourners to attend

Louise was very compassionate, knowledgeable, and helpful throughout the process from initial consultation to final collection of dad's ashes. She was prompt in dealing with any questions we had, the funeral ran smoothly and exactly as we planned. We used an excellent celebrant recommended by Louise and were also supported on the day of the cremation by Lucy from Shepherd and sons who accompanied the hearse and pall bearers. I have no hesitation in recommending Louise and the team at Shepherd and sons.
Response from A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. Thank you for this recommendation.

I chose to use Shepherd & Sons at Cottingham because of the location. My husband passed away in April 2021 and although there were still restrictions because of Covid19 the ladies who looked after me (Louise and Michaela) were so helpful and understanding. Nothing was too much trouble for them and any worries I had were all ironed out with ease. I cannot praise them enough for their professionalism at the rest room right through to the funeral itself. All of my family were totally impressed at how smoothly everything went and I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you to all at Shepherds & sons who made our farewell so remarkable.
Response from A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors

Response from A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for your review. Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care.
Rating 5.0
From the day I called to explain my husband had passed away to the day we had the service the staff were so kind and so respectful. Louise explained everything to us, and gave us support and advice, she even helped me to find the celebrant I wanted from just my description of him, as I didn't know his name. Glen and his team were so kind and caring, they never rushed me, they were constantly checking myself and my son were ok throughout the day. I have the upmost respect for your staff, as their roles can not be easy, supporting people in such sad circumstances and even more so in these unprecedented times
Im so thankful to you and your staff for all the support given to myself and my son Ryan
Response from A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors

My sister and I went to see Louise at the Cottingham branch to make the arrangements for our mother's funeral. She was very helpful and gave us plenty of time. On the day of the funeral itself everything was done most sensitively and efficiently. I was very satisfied with the service we received.
Response from A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors
Your comments will provide great encouragement to the team to keep doing their job to the best of their ability. I am glad that you and the family were well cared for.

Louise explained everything clearly , invited us to ask questions , asked whether she could make suggestions on the Funeral Notice I had drafted ~ they improved it ,she also asked if I would like to provide a photo to show how my Mother usually styled her hair . When we went to say a last good bye she struck just the right note . She clearly takes pride in helping people at a time when they need it .
Glenn rang me to explain what would happen on the Funeral day , told me that if any of the family Pall Bearers felt they could not do it there would be staff on hand , he also said if any questions occurred to me later I should ring & he would be contacted & ring me back .
Response from A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors
Our team are here to provide the highest level of service for you and we are happy this was achieved. I am glad that we were able to provide you with the dignity and respect needed at this time and that we provided the highest level of care and guidance for you and your family.
Rating 5.0
They conducted themselves with great professional and sensitivety at my time of loss, plus they were extra special due to me being poorly in hospital. They kept me upto date with all the procedures and even though I sadly missed the service as I was in hospital I trusted them to honour mine and my late sisters wishes. I would recommend a shepherd's to everyone needing a funeral service or cremation
