Dealing with loss

Discreet and direct cremations

In the event that a loved one passes away, it can be difficult to know what to do. When the time is right for you, our direct cremation and funeral services across Somerset are available. We’re always on hand to walk you through the process of a burial or cremation, making things as accessible as we can.





What is a direct cremation ?

Direct cremations put simplicity first. There is no funeral service, no farewell ceremony and no viewing of the deceased. A simple coffin is used and there is no embalming process for the body. A direct cremation takes place at the convenience of the funeral provider, at which you will likely not be present. For more information, please view our Services page.

What is a direct burial ?

Much like a direct cremation, a direct burial prioritises simplicity and efficiency. The deceased is taken straight to the burial site, with no ritual or ceremony to mention, and you will not be present for the burial. Being the simplest form of burial, a direct burial is the most cost-effective method of burial. Our Services page, again, has a more in-depth explanation of what the process entails.
