Understanding Direct Cremation

Direct cremation stands as a departure from conventional funeral practices, offering a private and respectful cremation service without the presence of mourners. This service takes place in our regional crematoria, where your loved one is accorded the utmost respect. This separation of the cremation process from the funeral service grants families the freedom to host personal and heartfelt memorial services at a later date, often integrating the scattering of ashes as a part of the commemorations.

Embarking on a Personalised Journey

An Inclusive £895 Package

Our comprehensive package, available at a fixed price of £895, includes the collection of your loved one from any hospital or mortuary within England or Wales, followed by transportation to our regional crematoria. In the case of collections from private residences or hospices, an additional fee of £250 is charged to facilitate the availability of our on-call team round the clock.

At Newrest Funerals, we prioritize the dignified treatment of every individual, offering environmentally friendly wooden coffins crafted by seasoned British craftsmen. We ensure you are informed of the date and time of the cremation, offering you a moment to commemorate the occasion in your way.


Personalised Memorial Services in Berkshire

Although direct cremation services do not include a venue or chapel to host a gathering, they grant the family an opportunity to organise a unique celebration of their loved one’s life at a later date. This could be a day of sentimental significance or a season that promises favourable weather, adding a personal touch to the memorial.

Affordability Without Compromising on Dignity

Opting for a direct cremation allows you to avoid the steep costs associated with traditional funeral services, which often include venue hire, flowers, catering, and transportation for guests. Our approach focuses on the essential aspects – the cremation process, a dignified coffin, and necessary transportation, facilitating an honourable yet economical farewell.
