Direct Cremation
A Direct Cremation is simply the provision of a low cost, unattended cremation without a funeral ceremony, also known as an ‘Unattended Cremation.’

Direct Cremation is also an option where all possible attendees are too far scattered around the country, or world, or are physically unable to gather.

A Direct Cremation includes arrangements and all necessary documentation, collection of the deceased in working hours, a traditional coffin and cremation at a local crematorium.

In a Direct Cremation you don’t go to visit the person who has died in the funeral home, there is no hearse, no procession, and no service in the crematorium.  The coffin is cremated without any ceremony and without any family or friends in attendance.

How we care for your loved ones
When a loved one comes into the care of Deighan’s Funeral Parlour, we acknowledge the level of trust that is being placed in us, and we pledge to care for them with dignity and respect, in the same way that we would if they were a member of our own family. 

We have both male and female staff working behind the scenes to care for those that have died and it is perfectly acceptable if you would like to let us know if you have a preference as to who should wash and dress your loved one.
