Is a Funerals on a Budget direct cremation service right for me? A direct cremation gives you the choice and freedom to decide how you say goodbye to your loved one who has passed away, without having to arrange a traditional funeral. You can then arrange a private memorial service or celebration that you feel is most appropriate for you, your family and friends.

Funerals on a Budget Corn
For some families the cost of a traditional funeral can be expensive as there are so many different elements that need to be considered, such as flowers, limousines and orders of service. There is no need for these added extras for a Funerals on a Budget direct cremation, as we look after the practical side with dignity and compassion, just without the presence of any mourners. While our fees are significantly cheaper than a full funeral, you can be reassured that all aspects are carried out to our high professional standards and with the utmost respect.
Our aim is to keep our costs low without compromising the quality of care we provide. Most of our funerals are arranged by phone, and there are a few legal and contractual documents for you to sign and return to us. There’s no need to organise any of the added extras that a traditional funeral would require, unless you and your family want to attend the service.

You can arrange everything via telephone, email and post; although we do have to send some official legal and contractual documents for you to sign and return to us.
