Private Cremation

A simple private cremation (known also as direct cremation) for people who don't want a formal funeral service. 

Our private cremation has two main options

  1. The private direct cremation and
  2. The private direct cremation with a memorial or committal.


Private from $1,950

A Private Direct Cremation is without a formal ceremony. A direct cremation removes the formality of a traditional funeral service and procession, ideal for those that do not want a fuss when they are gone or would prefer a memorial service at a later time separate from the cremation.

A Private Direct Cremation with a committal service is a respectful way to say goodbye.  A few words are spoken with an upgraded coffin and flowers are provided, but it is not as formal as a full service.

Unlike most, our direct cremation includes doctor's medical certificate costs and the cremation permit and costs - something not all providers include - provision of a simple coffin and a viewing.
