What Is An Unattended Funeral?


A simple, dignified unattended cremation without a service beforehand

An Unattended Funeral also referred to as a direct or unattended cremation, is ideal for those who would prefer a simpler funeral. An Unattended Funeral is different to a traditional funeral as there is no funeral service beforehand and no mourners present at the cremation. It gives you the chance to arrange a dignified and respectful funeral now – allowing you the opportunity to hold a memorial service or celebration of life at a later date so you can commemorate your loved one’s life in a way that suits you and your family.

An Unattended Funeral is arranged with the help of our telephone-based arrangement team who are available 24/7 to ensure arranging your loved one’s funeral is a simple and straightforward process.


Here’s how an Unattended Funeral works:


– Your loved one will be collected from their place of rest a few days prior to the funeral and cared for in our high-quality mortuary facilities

– A representative will contact you to help complete the necessary forms and paperwork to allow the cremation to go-ahead

– They will be taken directly to the crematorium on the day of the cremation in a specialised funeral vehicle.

– An unattended cremation takes place without a procession beforehand and without the attendance of any mourners

– Your loved one’s ashes will be scattered in our gardens of remembrance or can be returned to you upon request at additional cost


Our Unattended Funeral costs from just £1175 and includes doctor’s fees and cremation fees – something not all providers will cover – provision of a simple wood effect coffin, collection from the place of rest a few days prior to cremation and transportation in a specialised funeral vehicle.
