Unattended cremation

Dignified and affordable

Unattended Cremations provide an affordable alternative to a full service funeral, without compromising on the quality of care. They offer a no-fuss or simple cremation for those who are seeking simplicity, or where budget is limited.

What happens at a direct cremation?

On the day of the funeral, the deceased will be transported to the crematorium in a non-ceremonial vehicle with several team members accompanying them on their final journey. This normally takes place before 10am and after 4.30pm on a day of our choosing. An unattended cremation has no formal funeral service and is usually unattended leaving you to say goodbye to your loved one in your own way rather than with a traditional funeral ceremony and mourners present at the crematorium.

With an unattended cremation you can still have a private memorial service or celebration of life that you feel best reflects the wishes of your loved one at an alternative or unusual venue before or after the cremation takes place.

Discuss your requirements with us at Stephen Johnstone and Son Independent Funeral Directors and we can help you decide whether this is the right funeral for your loved one. We can give you more information and organise an unattended cremation service for you.
