A direct cremation is an alternate, more flexible option with no service at the crematorium. People often wish to “do their own thing”, holding their own memorial service at a time, date and location of their choosing.
We are an award-winning funeral directors and cover all of mainland Scotland. We are the country’s only not-for-profit funeral directors.

“Overall, I received an excellent service from Caledonia Cremation throughout the whole process in what was clearly a difficult time. They provide an invaluable and affordable service to the community, delivered in a professional and dignified manner. I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone.” K McGhee
“The support of Stephanie, Angela and everyone involved at Caledonia Cremation was invaluable and I admire the work they do. They were friendly, sympathetic and above all, genuine. There was no sales pitch and I could tell they were happy to stay on the phone just to talk and make sure I was ok. They even went as far as to tell me to call back if I just needed to talk which was a great comfort. We will be forever grateful.” J Bendall
We also have a special helpline for anyone considering claiming DWP Funeral Benefits. This isn’t just for people who are using our service – we will help anyone facing financial problems because of a funeral. See our Funeral Costs Helpline page
We also campaign for fairness in funerals in Scotland – fighting the problems and debt caused by UK Government funeral benefits policy and by the predatory parts of the For-Profit funeral industry.
