Cremation Without a Service

Sometimes known as Direct Cremation

Cremation Without a Service from V F Wedlake Funeral Directors is for those who would prefer a simpler choice for their funeral. It’s an alternative to a traditional funeral as there is no funeral service and no one present at the cremation. Regardless of how you’d like to say farewell, our caring team treat everyone with the same level of professionalism, integrity and care. We’ve been serving you and your family since 1921, so you can trust us to do right by your loved one and right by you. 

Cremation Without a Service is a funeral without the traditional service; we’ll arrange for the person who has died to be taken into our care and then for an unattended cremation at a crematorium of our choosing. The ashes can then be collected or scattered at the crematorium. This type of funeral gives you the freedom to remember someone in your own way, whether that’s a quiet moment of reflection or a celebration of life at a time and place to suit you.

Total Cost: £995**

** This price is if your loved one is in the care of the Coroner. If not then there are statutory Doctors fees to pay of £164.

If your loved one needs to be taken into our care from a home address, hospice, care home or hospital without full mortuary facilities there is a additional charge of £200.
