Direct Cremations – Middleton & Wood can offer you more . . .

Covid-19 had a massive impact on families losing loved ones with the restrictions on capacity of people attending funerals and has changed the way people are viewing funerals.  Whilst we are now seeing a rise in those attending funeral services to pay their respects to family and friends, there is a market for those looking for a more simple and cost effective alternative funeral.  There are a rising number of TV adverts offering a national direct cremation service but we too as a local funeral director can provide this.  What the adverts don’t tell you is that you cannot choose what clothes your loved one is dressed in and you cannot choose a local crematorium for their ashes to be scattered in the garden of remeberance without incurring additional fees.

Middleton & Wood pride ourselves on being a modern Funeral Directors but with your wants at the heart of what we do; and we listen.  For some people, a Direct Cremation is a perfect solution thats not only cost effective, but enables loved ones to maybe have a memorial service at a later date that can be more initimate.  For some, the idea of not having a traditional funeral and not being able to say goodbye to a loved one is unbearable and offers no closure.  We have listened and are able to offer Direct Cremation Packages and Direct Plus Cremation packages to our clients both at time of need and as a funeral plan taken out with us through Golden Charter.

Our Direct Cremation package is just £1500 and our Direct Plus is just £1750.  So whats the difference?  With either package, attending a service at the crematorium is not an option.  With our Direct Plus package however, you can have a small initmate service in our chapel of rest prior to your loved one being taken to the crematorium.

More details on our package can be found on our web page to see whats included and excluded in each package.  You can find the details by clicking the link here.

We can offer our families so much more with an array of options to lay your loved ones ashes to rest, we talk to you and offer guidance and support through the whole journey.  This can often be the most difficult decision familes make but we have the expertise and network of high quality suppliers to assist you whether it be arranging an interment of ashes and providing stonemasony or arranging  your loved ones ashes to be scattered in a firework, we will support and guide you.
