Welcome for new cremation service
A new "direct cremation" service has launched, Simplicity Cremations. Claire Henry, Chief Executive of Dying Matters said: “This is an interesting development. Although it won’t be the right option for everyone, anything that increases the choices available whilst maintaining dignity and respect for the deceased is welcome, especially with costs of funerals becoming a significant issue for many people. To get the funeral we want, we need to look at the options available and let our families know what we'd like to happen."
