Funeral Types

Arranging a cremation

Cremation is an option that many people are choosing these days.

Quite often individuals who wish to be cremated ensure their final wishes are well known, either by preplanning, including instructions in their Will or telling a spouse or child.

When arranging a funeral, if you decide to choose cremation, at the crematorium you can choose between a full service or a shorter committal service. You can hold a cremation after a funeral service or a cremation followed by a memorial service.

The committal is held at the end of the service in the crematorium. There may be a closing of curtains as the committal takes place, or the coffin may move gently from sight.

There are some restrictions (metal objects and certain materials) on what can be included in a committal. We can advise on this.

In addition, you may like to discuss with us, or family members, the options for final disposition of the remains. Usually, the cremated remains are scattered, buried, entombed, or kept at home

Please call Bennetts Undertakers on 01277 210104, we are here to help you, when arranging the type of funeral that it right for you, your family and your loved ones.

Or why not let us call you back at a convenient time to discuss your needs.
