Direct cremation emerges as a discreet and dignified method of parting, conducted in the absence of a gathering of mourners. Orchestrated at our hand-selected regional crematoria, we ensure the memory of your loved one is revered with the utmost respect. This approach empowers families to later devise deeply personal memorial events, perhaps highlighting the dispersal or preservation of ashes.

All-Encompassing £895 Package

Our all-in-one package, set at £895, includes the collection of your loved one from any hospital or mortuary within England or Wales, ensuring their respectful transfer to our regional crematoria. For collections from private abodes or care centres, an additional charge of £250 is required, underlining our team’s perpetual availability.

At Newrest Funerals, respect is paramount. We champion eco-aware wooden caskets, meticulously fashioned by esteemed British craftsmen. Maintaining a policy of transparent communication, we apprise you of the cremation’s set time, allowing you a moment for solitary reverence. Subsequent to the cremation, the ashes can be dispersed in our peaceful Garden of Remembrance or returned to you in a green urn, complemented by a custom nameplate, available for a modest sum of £91.
