A direct cremation is a simple and respectful cremation without a funeral. The costs are lower because we choose the date and time of the cremation, there is no funeral service, and family do not attend.

This fee includes removal during working hours and care of the person who has died until the day of the funeral, all paperwork and a simple veneered wood or cardboard coffin,  cremation costs and doctor’s certificate (if required).
