We will collect the deceased from anywhere in Ireland and take care of them at our mortuary facilities. This includes suitable transport to the crematorium for cremation.

Direct Cremation will take care of everything including the removal of artificial devices such as pacemakers and handling of paperwork. The direct cremation will take place at our trusted partner crematorium and we'll let you know the date and time it will take place.

Ashes in an Urn.png


Ashes can be scattered in the crematorium's garden of remembrance or we have the option to deliver them to you by hand, usually within 14 days after cremation. Ashes are returned in a biodegradable urn that you can bury or scatter the ashes in a special location.

Funeral Service


You are free to gather the people that matter, at a time that suits everyone, to celebrate the life of your loved one.

Why are people choosing direct cremation?

With the spiralling cost of a funeral, for some, a direct cremation is simply a cheaper way to go than a more traditional funeral. For others, it’s a question of choice. Some people simply don’t want the fuss of a full funeral service.

More people are choosing to take a personal approach to their funeral, as opposed to the traditional funeral and burial, with direct cremations becoming more common. This type of cremation involves the deceased being taken directly from the place of death to the crematorium without a viewing or funeral service.

While funerals are seen by some people as the perfect way to say goodbye, others find them distressing and want to separate their memory from the distress of their passing. Without the pressure of a funeral service, family and friends are free to plan a more personalised memorial service at a time and in a place, that suits them, if they so wish.
