Heritage Direct 

An unattended cremation without a ceremony

Heritage Direct Funeral

The Heritage Direct Funeral is where a loved one is taken by our Funeral Director to the crematorium without a funeral ceremony/service.

Over the past couple of years an increasing number of families are choosing the direct cremation funeral option as an alternative to what is regarded as a conventional funeral for a number of reasons including:-

Families are not always comfortable having a formal funeral at which the body of their loved one is present

With many families having relatives not living local, a loved ones funeral can have only a very small number of mourners in physical attendance.

The Direct funeral gives the opportunity to say farewell to a loved one at a time that maybe more convenient to the entire family in some cases some months after their passing in a more fitting setting without the formalities at the immediate time.

From a financial view point, because of the simplicity, the Heritage Direct Funeral is the most cost effective way for families to facilitate a funeral.

In many cases however cost is not the main factor, John Lennon and David Bowie both chose this type of service.


The key differences

  • You won't be able to visit your loved one in the funeral home

  • You aren't able to choose the day and time of the cremation

  • There isn't a service and mourners are not able to attend the crematorium

  • Your loved one will travel with our Funeral Director directly to the crematorium.

What you will pay for

  • The Funeral Directors Professional fees

  • Collection and Care of your loved one 

  • Heritage Standard coffin

  • Hearse and transportation to the Crematorium

  • Crematorium & doctors fees.

The last goodbye

A Direct cremation does not stop you or your family from having a farewell ceremony or memorial service in the days or months that follow.  The ceremony or service may include the scattering of ashes at a memorable or favourite location.
