Affordable Cremations

Quality without Compromise
Direct Cremation

If you want to have a simple funeral for your loved one, without all the trappings normally associated with funerals,  a 'Direct Cremation' is our simplest and most affordable option.

What is a direct cremation?

A direct cremation is a cremation without a ceremony or funeral service. You can visit to pay your last respects, if you feel you want to, before your loved one is taken to the crematorium of our choosing. The ashes will be returned to you afterwards, for you to keep or scatter as you wish.​

What if I want to have a funeral ceremony as well?

If you would like to have a ceremony before or after a direct cremation, there are many choices available. A direct cremation can take place after a religious service, a ceremony at a village hall, town hall, sports club or even your own home. We also have a dedicated chapel in Newton Abbot that you can use. We can recommend religious ministers and non-religious celebrants to guide and help you.

Simplicity Funerals

We have a hall at our Newton Abbot premises that seats up to 60 people available for a service of celebration. The hall can be set up how you wish to have a service exactly as you require. Our sound system can be used to play as many pieces of music as you like. As we own this venue, there is no time constraint on your use. We also have the facilities to provide teas and coffees.
