What is direct cremation?

Direct cremation is the simplest and most affordable end-of-life option where the cremation takes place days immediately following the passing, without any services taking place prior to.

Often referred to as a “direct cremation” or “basic cremation”, we call a Simple Cremation.

Our simple cremation package only contains what you need without any hidden cost.

Traditional funeral homes charge thousands of dollars for a simple direct cremation. We offer the same option at an affordable price in one simple plan.

Keep in mind, direct cremation does not preclude a memorial service. As an alternative, you can plan a memorial after the cremation with the urn present.
