Direct Cremation Dorset


At Head & Wheble we offer affordable direct cremations in Dorset. Our friendly experienced team of funeral directors are always on hand to provide professional advice and support for direct cremations during such a difficult time for you and your family.

What is a Direct Cremation?

A direct cremation is a cremation without the service, wake or celebration of life. It’s a modern yet dignified choice that more and more people are choosing. If you choose not to have or attend a cremation in person, then a direct cremation can be arranged at the crematorium.

It is becoming a popular decision to opt for an unattended cremation for financial reasons or to avoid uncomfortable formalities associated with a service. Our direct cremation services are available throughout the Dorset area and can be arranged remotely with a member of our dedicated direct cremation team.

Organising Direct Cremations

direct cremation DorsetOrganising a direct cremation is an easy process and prices start from as little as £995. We often get asked, what’s included in a direct cremation? Whilst we offer bespoke direct cremation services, a typical direct cremation package will include:

  • Transportation of the deceased in a wooden coffin
  • Completion of the cremation paperwork
  • Crematorium fees
  • Respectful carrying of the coffin into the crematorium
  • Cremated remains can be made available for next of kin or scattered on their behalf

For a more personalised service we can provide options for coffins, caskets, urns and floral tributes. With direct cremations you can choose to organise a wake or memorial service later if preferred & at a convenient time for all without the stress and sorrow of having to attend a formal cremation service. Speak to us today for more information on our direct cremation packages, there are no hidden charges.

Direct Burial Services

If you want a burial rather than a cremation, again without any ceremony or loved ones present, we also offer direct burial services in Dorset. A quote for this service depends on the burial plot, so please contact us and we’ll be happy to advise you.
