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.
All the practicalities can be arranged by us without any fuss, leaving those grieving free to say farewell how, where and when is right for them. We are much more than just funeral directors, we also offer bereavement counselling and an advice service.
Any profits are always reinvested in helping people in Scotland’s poorest communities who struggle to cope with bereavement. All donations are safeguarded by going through Community Renewal Trust, the regulated charity which runs Caledonia Cremation.
Our work is part funded by the Scottish Government and European Social Fund’s Social Innovation Fund.
