You can arrange an unattended cremation over the phone in just a few minutes. Your loved one will then be collected from their place of death and cremated without a ceremony at a crematorium.
An unattended funeral is a funeral that isn’t witnessed by the family and friends of the person who died. Instead, the cremation or burial takes place privately at the crematorium or burial ground. This can either be handled by a funeral director or direct cremation specialist.
Once the unattended funeral has taken place, the family and friends can arrange a memorial service at a time that’s right for them. This could be anything from a picnic in the park, to fireworks by the beach, to dinner at a favourite restaurant. If you choose to have a direct cremation, you can even choose to have your loved one’s ashes present at the memorial service.
An unattended cremation is a simple cremation service that doesn’t include a ceremony. Instead, most families choose to have a memorial service once their loved one’s ashes have been returned.
