T.A. Ellement & Son
Direct Cremation

Specialists in Direct Cremation in Hillingdon, Harrow & Surrounding Areas

Here at T.A. Ellement & Son, we understand some of us prefer a straightforward funeral without fanfare. For this reason, we offer a direct cremation service, which honours your final wishes whilst maintaining your dignity at all times. Some might consider a direct cremation if they do not want to burden family members with a more costly funeral plan or simply because they would prefer no fuss.

Whatever the reason for a direct cremation, we do our utmost to ensure you’re treated with the greatest respect, so you have peace of mind when the time comes that everything will be handled as sensitively as possible.

What is Direct Cremation?

Direct cremation means that the person who has died is handed into our care for us to arrange and perform a straightforward cremation service. As part of this service, we will dress the deceased in a simple gown and schedule when the service will take place. Afterwards, we can arrange to scatter their ashes in the garden of remembrance or make arrangements for a loved one to collect them.

We offer this service throughout Hillingdon, Harrow, Pinner, Northwood, Ruislip and surrounding areas. Our staff are on hand to discuss direct cremation at length with family members, so you know what to expect and ask any questions.

Remember Your Loved One Your Way

Direct cremation means that there is no funeral service, nor will family and friends be able to choose the timing of the cremation or be present when it takes place. Whilst this might seem unusual, it is also an opportunity to remember someone in the way they would like to be remembered and uniquely mark their memory. 

For example, you could organise a gathering to honour their legacy, without the formality of a funeral service or arrange a trip to their favourite seaside town. Our direct cremation service is very easy to arrange and can be paid in full using our simple online booking system, giving you one less thing to worry about during a challenging time.
