A direct cremation is a simple, dignified option from Houghtons in which a deceased is cremated without a funeral service or ceremony. Sometimes it is known as an unattended cremation or simple cremation and is our lowest cost cremation service.
Just because no one is to attend the service it doesn't mean that there is a reduction of our standards or care. Every deceased in our care is treated with dignity and respect. The deceased will be brought into our care in one of our private ambulances during normal office hours and cared for while the administration and documentation element is completed. We will notify you of the committal date which will take place at our local crematoria such as Walton Lea, Widnes, Anfield, Birches in Northwich
The total cost of our direct cremation is £999 and includes the cremation fee, the doctor's fee, a coffin, hearse and bearers.
This option is also available as a funeral plan. More information can be found here.
