A direction cremation is a cremation only, without a service.
Some people are opting for this option as they do not want the fuss or expense of a funeral.
However, does it give closure and allow those left behind to grieve?
Each of us thinks and feels differently about death and death rituals. There is no right or wrong way.
It is important that people discuss their wishes with family and friends in advance, to allow discussion and acceptance of a person’s wishes.
A compromise may be to hold a memorial service – formal or informal – for the deceased. It may take the form of a lunch, dinner or afternoon tea, for example. It can include tributes and rituals.
For ideas, see our Memorial Services page.
