Incorporating Lee & Holmes, and A Vause

Direct Cremation

Bereavement is different for different people. Attending a funeral service can be cathartic for some and yet many find the experience daunting. Over the past few years, we’ve seen a shift towards what we call “direct cremation”. This is an unattended service with the cremation taking place in isolation, and the ashes returned to the family for a service of their choice later.  Choosing this option allows the cremation of your loved one to take place quickly and professionally with all the care and attention to detail you would expect, allowing more time to organise getting your friends and family together and planning a memorial service.

Emma Butler

“Our Funeral Director was the ultimate professional from start to finish, from organising candlelight vigil for our friend as so many wanted to pay their respects, to ensuring the day ran like clockwork despite the hundreds of mourners. Our family have used Lee and Holmes several times over the years and they are the most approachable, kind,empathetic,nothing to much trouble kind of people you want to talk to on your darkest day.”
