More people are choosing to take a personal approach to their funeral, as opposed to the traditional funeral and burial, with direct cremations becoming more common. This type of cremation involves the deceased being taken directly from the place of death to the crematorium without a viewing or funeral service. While funerals are seen by some people as the perfect way to say goodbye, others find them distressing and want to separate their memory from the distress of their passing. Without the pressure of a funeral service, family and friends are free to plan a more personalised memorial service at a time and in a place, that suits them, if they so wish. Why are people choosing direct cremation? With the spiralling cost of a funeral, for some, a direct cremation is simply a cheaper way to go than a more traditional funeral. For others, it’s a question of choice. Some people simply don’t want the fuss of a full funeral service. What's included? A Direct Cremation with Direct Cremations Ireland costs £1,150 and includes: bringing the person who has died into our care all cremation fees and costs care and preparation of the person who has died a simple wood-effect coffin a suitable vehicle to the crematorium any required doctors’ fees a scatter tube for the ashes Extra Costs There would be a fee of £195 if extra staff are required to carry out a non hospital removal and if an XXL coffin is required £250 is added to cover this request.
