Here at Funeral Care Scotland, we understand that every family and grieving process is different. Some people may not deem a funeral ceremony necessary for saying goodbye to their loved one and might instead prefer an understated send-off. A direct cremation is best suited to fulfilling these wishes, offering a minimal-fuss cremation without a service or mourners. Although this is a cremation without a service, it is performed with the utmost respect and dignity for the deceased. 

Direct cremations are an affordable way to say goodbye to your loved one, avoiding the traditional expenses often incurred with funeral planning. It also allows the freedom to say goodbye in your own way at a later date, without being tied to tradition and formality.

We understand that this time period is incredibly difficult. Our compassionate professionals provide you with all the necessary information and advice, so you can make an enlightened decision about what is best for your loved one.

Our team will support you through the whole process and handle all requests with empathy and understanding. Our personalised approach has allowed us to establish a well-respected reputation and build meaningful relationships in the local community.

Please note, unlike many other providers, who use a "Private Ambulance / Support Vehicle" on the day of the Direct Cremation. 

We feel it is only right to use a "Traditional Hearse" for the final journey to the Crematorium.
