Park Funeral Directors can arrange for a respectful and dignified direct cremation in Barry or the surrounding areas. As a part of the service, the deceased will be brought into our care where they will be treated with high levels of respect as with any other service. Your loved one will be transported in a simple coffin to the crematorium, where an unattended funeral will be conducted. Following cremation, the ashes will be returned to us ready for collection and distribution in whichever way you deem fitting. If you would like more information regarding direct cremation services, feel free to call our independent local funeral directors.
A direct cremation is an unattended funeral carried out by a small team of professional funeral staff at a designated local crematorium. Rest assured that choosing a direct cremation will not affect the level of care and respect your loved one will receive. Instead, the deceased will receive our professional services throughout, for a fuss-free yet dignified final farewell. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us for advice and information.
There are many reasons why people choose direct cremation over attended funeral services. These may include:
While no less heart-felt, there are of course some limitations of a direct cremation. The service is unattended other than by our dedicated funeral staff. Therefore, there is no service, readings or eulogies in advance. Additionally, the package covers specific products, such as coffin type, which you will not be able to choose. However, you will have the freedom to commemorate your loved one in a method of your own choosing, and ashes will be returned to you to be kept or scattered as you prefer.
When choosing an unattended direct cremation, you may be considering how else you can remember your loved one. You may wish to carry out a memorial service of your own design, where you can gather with friends and family to share memories and remember the deceased in your own way. Other suggestions include:
