A modern alternative to a traditional funeral

Arrange a Direct Cremation with us for £1,345

A simple, dignified cremation without the ceremony and costs associated with traditional funerals. Our most affordable type of service, popular with customers who don’t want the fuss and expense of a traditional service.

With a direct cremation friends and family gain the freedom to arrange their own personal memorial, separate to the cremation; this allows you to say goodbye exactly when and how you choose.  It’s a modern alternative to the traditional funeral and increasingly growing in popularity. We have been offering these since 2007, probably before even the term was phrased.

I can't recommend these guys enough, Paul and his team were really understanding and helpful. I have used other funeral directors, based in Deal before and the service received was very different. If I am unfortunate enough to need the service again I would not think twice about going to them. Highly recommend. Thank you to Paul and team you made a difficult day more tolerable.
