Did you know that you can be cremated without having a funeral beforehand. This is known as direct cremation and it’s just a bare cremation without a ceremony.
Most independent funeral directors can offer direct cremation and provide better value for money compared to other online cremation providers. They can organise collection and care of the deceased, a basic coffin, a cremation at an appointed crematorium, and returning of the ashes.
What is meant by no funeral, bare cremation?
No funeral, bare cremation is simply another way to describe a direct cremation. You may also come across the terms ‘no service, no attendance’, ‘cremation without ceremony’, ‘cremation only funeral’ or ‘unattended cremation’ but they all mean the same thing
For many people, direct cremation provides an affordable and fuss-free alternative to a funeral with a formal service. If you choose to have no funeral, bare cremation, then family and friends have the option to hold a separate memorial service at a later date when the ashes have been returned.
