When facing the heart-wrenching task of planning a funeral, it’s essential to remember the primary goal: to honour the memory and spirit of the deceased. At Newrest Funerals, our commitment is not just to offer ceremonies but to carve out a tailored experience that speaks volumes of the departed’s uniqueness. With our specialisations ranging from direct cremations to eco-friendly funerals, we understand the profoundness of this final tribute and are dedicated to ensuring it is intimate, personal, and representative.

The Nuances of Direct Cremation and Burial

Direct cremation and burial streamline the funerary process, focusing exclusively on the essentials. With direct cremation, the deceased is cremated in the absence of a preceding funeral service, allowing families to hold personal memorials at a time and place of their choosing. The procedure provides an expedient alternative, ensuring minimal logistical challenges, while also respecting the wishes of those who prefer simplicity. Direct burials follow a similar principle, wherein the deceased is laid to rest without a preceding ceremony. In both instances, the emphasis lies on unfettered dignity, allowing for a more private reflection.

Eco-friendly Funerals: Honouring the Dead and the Planet

For many, the idea of giving back to the Earth even in death is a comforting one. Eco-friendly funerals incorporate biodegradable materials, minimising environmental impact and signifying a return to nature. From coffins crafted of sustainable materials to methods that reduce carbon emissions, these funerals are not just a nod to environmental consciousness but a profound statement of one’s lasting legacy. By selecting this route, the departed’s memory becomes eternally intertwined with the regenerative rhythms of nature, thus offering solace and a reminder of the cyclical nature of life.
