Some reasons why some people choose direct cremations:

  • You're planning to hold the ceremony and celebration separately to the cremation

  • You would have planned to have a ceremony but not everyone can be there

  • You've been told not to spend too much money or make a fuss!

  • You plan to say a fuller goodbye later

  • You simply want to scatter or bury the ashes
