Direct Cremation

A direct cremation, is for those who would prefer a simpler choice for their funeral. It’s different to a traditional funeral as there is no formal funeral service and no one present at the cremation.

It’s for those, who for lots of reasons, prefer not to have a funeral service. This option of a simple, straightforward direct cremation is being chosen by a growing number of people.

  • Collection of the deceased and our care until the funeral.
  • Making all necessary arrangements and collating the required documentation (please note however that we are not able to register a death ourselves).
  • Supplying a simple coffin.
  • Cremation at Yeovil Crematorium. No ceremony will take place and it will not be possible for family/friends to attend.
  • Cremation and Doctors Fees
  • Interment of cremated remains in Yeovil Crematorium’s Garden of Remembrance or returning them to our care for collection within 30 days.


For an additional charge we can offer you the opportunity to be present to say your final farewell. Family or friends can gather together to say their goodbye whilst listening to some appropriate music chosen for the occasion. (However, there will be no minister or formal service).
