Funeral services can be as complex or simplified as decided, which alters cost and options. At ISCA Funerals, we provide direct funerals which provide low-cost funeral service options to the South West. We understand that planning a funeral service can be a daunting and stressful time, which is why we offer help with everything, from the initial wishes to preparing for and carrying out all of the arrangements.
A direct cremation is the most simple and affordable of all the types of funeral service. This option is meeting the needs of an expanding number of people who may be seeking a respectful, yet simple service option with no fuss or additional extras.
A direct cremation offers families the option to deal with the death that little bit sooner and to say their goodbye’s at a later date; how, where and when is right for them.
During a direct cremation or a non-attended cremation as it is often referred to, no family or friends are present. This type of simple funeral is useful for those who may have a limited budget, for those who do not have any immediate family to take care of the service or for those who have limited funds to put towards a funeral.
It is not necessary to choose the extras such as viewings, but if desired we are happy to accommodate your wishes.
A memorial service is free to be held at a later date, whenever you’re ready – offering you time to prepare and grieve before you begin to cope with the loss. Perhaps scattering the ashes with family at a convenient date at your loved ones favourite place.
Times of grief are difficult and everybody deals with it in different ways. At ISCA, we understand that planning a funeral service can be a daunting and stressful time, which is why we offer help with everything, from the initial wishes to preparing for and carrying out all arrangements.
